Fallout Shelter is an odd little game. As its name suggests, it lets players on mobile devices take control of a shelter in the Fallout franchise. It is a fun little game; that quickly becomes a dystopian exploration of how these shelters become baby making factories to keep the daily processes running.
A twisted little experience, which although I find it odd in many ways, I still find myself enjoying for reasons unknown. Once locked away only accessible to people on iOS, is now also available to anyone with an Android phone. If you have an Android phone, no better time than now to experience what it is like to run a small society in the post-nuclear fallout in a way only the Fallout series can portray.
