11 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 is a free mobile title (eventually also brought to Windows) that lets Fallout fans and non-fans 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 a memorable way to wait out the release of Fallout 4.

In regards to gameplay Fallout Shelter players are in complete control as Overseer. By rescuing people from the wasteland or matching up your current dwellers you’ll grow your small vault into a larger population. Each dweller has their own SPECIAL stats, just like the larger Fallout franchise. This 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 you’ll have to deal with fires, radroaches and raider invasions.

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