Fallout Shelter puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland.

*** Fallout Shelter requires at least an iPhone 5, iPad 3, or iPad mini 2. ***

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.

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!

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!

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.

Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to you. What are you waiting for? Get started building your Vault today for FREE.

Perfect little app

I have logged around 300 hours on this app. It is challenging, especially at first, but there is so much room to grow. I've rebuilt my vault twice and am in the process of rebuilding it a third time. After a certain point, there really isn't any more growth you can do; all your characters have maxed out SPECIAL training and your weapons and armor are legendary.

However, I really appreciate that everything in game can earned just by playing the game a few minutes here and there over several months. It is not pay to win, although I have spent at least $60 on pets and Mr. Handys (The pet that changed the game for me provided +3 Child Specials). This game is fun and relaxing once you figure out how to handle the constant Ghoul/Deathclaw/Raider attacks. Tip: Equip your best weapons and gear to the toons defending your vault and the first two rooms! This will help prevent Deathclaws from getting deep into your vault and ravaging it.

I LOVE this app, but...

I have been playing this game since it was first released. I'm addicted to it. But I'm at 189 dwellers, with a thriving vault and the app crashes every 5 minutes. ): I've even tried not to overload it by collecting all my resources quickly and I even kicked out dwellers in the hope that would help, but it just won't stop crashing. It makes me not want to play anymore.

Also could you PLEASE make it so you can move living quarters around and redecorate them even when you're at max dwellers? I redid my vault lay out and had to kick out over 50 of my people just to move them .-. Sort of frustrating. Other than that, the game is amazing and I really enjoy it!

Best Game

In my 200 dweller vault I enjoy playing this game anytime I can. Usually I can't put it away. Overall my opinion on this game is five star because the certain qualities of this game are amazing like the pressure of getting the the three major resources energy, food, and water. I also enjoy striving against the enemies throughout the wasteland. My favorite part about this game is most likely the 3D design of the vault and wasteland. Another one of my favorites is the satisfaction of getting a good item like armor weapons or even dwellers. Above all this is an amazing game!
