Hans Wurst says:

Glacion Ninja says:

Recently, I published a game on Google Play called Swipe Defense. Would be great if you review it, or at least check it out and give feedback: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.UltraGlacier.SwipeDefense

XxTaiMTxX says:

They actually added in a Quest system… and a barber's chair for giving your dwellers makeovers.  So…  There's that.

James Jackson says:

you should come back to the game and give it another look they've added more stuff including actually being able to explore the wasteland

Ed Gepixel says:

I took Fallout Shelter as just a marketing tool for Fallout 4

Box of Frogs says:

I always enjoy your honest (and often amusing reviews.) This has been recently released on Steam. I think that it may have been updated since you did this review. For example, you mentioned haircuts and I notice that there is a barbershop (I have yet to unlock). There is basic weapon and armour crafting and quests: where you can take your little guys off to an area to explore and follow a storyline. I'm finding it kind of addictive (though it is only day 2 of play for me). Wonder if it is worth another review?

Micheal Hudgens says:

I really hate some of the enemies in Fallout Shelter.
For example I don't really like Deathclaws because they really get to board and they just run off to the next room.
Like what the hell man, usually deathclaws finish what they started​.
And Radscorpion are the freaking worse, they do similar things compared to a Deathclaw.
I'm going to tell you what makes Radscorpion worse, they will go into random rooms if they get bored.

And my God that is so annoying!

Roy Jewkes says:

the recent updates have added more stuff to do on the game like being able to go on missions.

The Sneaky Strangler says:

I'd rather see a port of fallout 1 because that could probably work really well

bringoutthelegos says:

Well they added quests

Israel Brandon Garcia says:

Bethesda destroyed my vault :c

Triple fife says:

My biggest problem with this game wasn't game play, but that every time I got on my resources were lowered from where I left them and a whole minute of gameplay and I got attacked immediately via deathclaws. I honestly just got tired of having to fight the deathclaws over and over again as well as resurrect the guys that I had placed on the top floor which were mainly scientist types so they weren't very strong versus the deathclaw wave I would get everytime I started the game.

Jack Mehoff says:

So a little over a year later, don't suppose the "boring" aspect of this review is shoved aside a bit with the addition of quests? In the video, it's stated there wasn't really anything more to do past the general 50+ dweller point. Well quests essentially fills that void pretty nicely I think. Gives end-game people a nice challenge.

TheCiscoKid2112 says:

I think this game has improved a lot since it first came out. The one thing I'll keep saying though, is that it needs a time passer. The first 6 hours or so are such a long grind.

TheCTcarkid says:

Review Game Dev. Story! It's fun! And no micro transactions!

Skywalker Gaming // TQ says:

The game has changed sence then

smashrhythm says:

I think you should revisit this game. Bethesda recently updated this game in great depth. You can now build your own suits and weapons. The best update is that now you can participate in exploring the wasteland in many ways. It is now a very fun game.

EJ Estonactoc says:

I have been playing this game for a couple of days and right away i had to buy lunch boxes.

Efren Martinez says:

I tried this game…. 2 times and it was just mind hurting , quit it in the same day, both times.

limp buisness says:

The slavery thing would be awesome! It would be even better if you could buy slaves too

DrSylvestreMatuschka says:

They recently updated the game. Now you can also scavenge for pieces of junk as well as blueprints in the wasteland as well as given you three new rooms to play with. You can craft weapons and outfits/armor using the junk and blueprints you have gathered (as in Fallout 4) or give your dwellers new haircuts in these new rooms. You can also upgrade said rooms to allow you to craft rare weapons and outfits/armor.

Armesis P says:

microtransaction bullshit, stay away.

Dr D00MBLADE says:

Forget this wacky game I wish they would put the OG Fallout games on mobile. I've never played them since I started with F3. But you can't tell me it would be impossible to put F1 and 2 on mobile.

Android Game Sacred Stones! Please review!

kassie2k4 says:

this sounds about right for this game, it's the first tablet/phone game i've ever had much interest in trying out, ill definitely get it when i get a tablet, nice to know it doesn't treat the player like a gold mine and rip them off, thanks for this honest and fair review
