BUILD THE PERFECT VAULT
Create a brighter future…underground! Select from a variety of modern-day rooms to turn an excavation beneath 2,000 feet of bedrock into the very picture of Vault Life.
OVERSEE A THRIVING COMMUNITY
Get to know your Dwellers and lead them to happiness. Find their ideal jobs and watch them flourish. Provide them with outfits, weapons, and training to improve their abilities.
Turn worthless junk into useful items with Crafting! Customize the look of any dweller in the Barbershop.
A well-run Vault requires a variety of Dwellers with a mix of skills. Build a Radio Room to attract new Dwellers. Or, take an active role in their personal lives; play matchmaker and watch the sparks fly!
EXPLORE THE WASTELAND
Send Dwellers above ground to explore the blasted surface left behind and seek adventure, handy survival loot, or unspeakable death. Find new armor and weapons, gain experience, and earn Caps. But don’t let them die!
PROTECT YOUR VAULT
From time to time, idyllic Vault life may be disrupted by the dangers of post-nuclear life. Prepare your Dwellers to protect against threats from the outside…and within.

Ratings and Reviews
Ever wondered what life’s really like in the Fallout games’ underground vaults? Experience all the challenges of running a post-apocalyptic community—from building gardens and power plants to playing matchmaker for your citizens. Eavesdropping on their goofy conversations never gets old, and an adorable art style à la Fallout’s Pip-Boy cartoons will make series fans swoon. It’s not all lighthearted hijinks, though: Whether at home or exploring the Wasteland, your people will face raiders and other dangers.
Great mechanics, poor business model
What I can say is that the gameplay elements in this game are great however, it has some built in barriers that you can pay your way past.
This game could be vastly improved by abandoning its micropayment model in favour of a base cost game with better pacing.
Best game for iOS
Addicting, fun and a worthwhile app. Doesn't "force" you to buy things as the game allows you to earn collectibles rather easily.
