10 Games Like Fallout Shelter

Games Like Fallout ShelterThis assortment of games like Fallout Shelter features titles that let you design a multi-story settlement as you care for inhabitants and manage resources.

Fallout Shelter started as a free mobile title before being made available on other platforms and allows Fallout fans and non-fans to build their own Vault. Playing as the Overseer you’ll co-ordinate your resources, dwellers and room layouts in order to maximise efficiency and keep everyone happy. Proving to be more than just a simple spin off title Fallout Shelter has gone from strength to strength with consistent updates and was a memorable way to wait out the release of Fallout 4.

By rescuing people from the wasteland or matching up your current dwellers you’ll grow your small vault into a larger population with growing needs. Each dweller has their own SPECIAL stats, just like the larger Fallout franchise which flows right into the resource generation mechanics of the game where these stats directly impact their effectiveness at generating a certain resource. To complicate matters in Fallout Shelter players will also need to deal with fires, radroach infestations and raider invasions.

The games like Fallout Shelter below offer similar settlement based gameplay where you’ll control your settlers to maximise resource generation, deal with issues as they arise and ultimately craft your ideal shelter.
