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.

Quite addicting

At first didn't know if I would like this but oh my god I can't stop! XD Have even stayed up a bit at night making sure my Vault is working smoothly. Had a very lucky start which helped me so much and now, the game is getting tougher. I HATE the radscorpions but I will figure things out. Very well thought out, the missions help out, tasks and such give good rewards here and there and in game purchases really aren't too necessary. Overall, I'm so glad I gave this a chance. I can see myself playing it for quite some time.

Over Powered Death Craws

Fallout Shelter is all i play i have really only have a couple suggestions to fix Bethesda! I had almost 100 dwellers in my vault 4 deathclaw attacks back to back along with mole rat an rad roach infections i lost 40 dwellers an all money trying to keep revive them all. Mind you i have 12 dwellers armed to the teeth with assorted high damage they couldn't bring the death claws down before they reached the bottom level the 12 were in the top two levels and the large majority of my dwellers were armed as well.

Bethesdas Finest

One of the best on IOS, this innovative mobile "vault simulator" tasks you with being the Overseer. Fans of Fallout already know the Overseer is responsible for personnel management, and now add construction to that list.

It's up to you how you run the vault, along with sending out residents to explore the surrounding areas for caps, weapons, armor, and much more.

An excellent recent addition is the Overseer's Office which, when fully upgraded, allows you to send three groups of residents out on specific missions. The missions are different each time - complete with a mix of locales and denizens making each mission feel different.

Exploration, battle, time management, customization, and so much more round out this magnum opus of mobile games.

The only bad thing that can be said, is that Bethesda hasn't made MORE mobile games.
