It looks pretty fun, it's another reason why I need an Android and not my lousy Windows phone. I know it's only available on iOS right now but I heard it'll be out on Android sometime in the future.

How is it?

I enjoy playing it, when it will actually load. My phone is an older model iPhone, and the game is super laggy when I try to play it. Hopefully it will work better if/when I get a new phone.

I'm playing it on a family iPad. It's really fun but as nightmarebrooke said, it's super laggy. It also crashes a ton. Especially during rushes It took a whole day just to get my vault started.

I figure it's because the development was a bit rushed so it could be released the night of the Bethesda conference.

Aww, that's a bummer. I have the 6 plus so I am not experiencing any crashes thankfully. Hopefully they'll fix it for you guys soon.

--

They said it's coming out for Android in a 'few months'. How silly would it be for them to release it right around when Fallout 4 is coming out? lol

--

I unlocked all the stat increasing buildings today which is handy. I also sent out 3 to explore...and they all survived! One even brought back some power armor. I have 33 residents and I think about 70% all have weapons now. It's SO important to get at least one or 2 in each room to have a weapon for when the radroaches level up. I was easily defeating them last night but today the first encounter with them wiped out my entire power room! It took forever to bring all of them back from the dead too. I am doing fine with the raiders (this is one of my pet peeves of the game; raiders = easy and roaches = killers lol) by just keeping two armed vaulters in the vault room with decent armor. I did get ridiculously lucky an hour in the game by opening a lunchbox with a Fat Man in it though.

--

I am not sure about the radio station being worth it. I have 5 people in there right now all with high charisma and I've only had one person come to the vault all day.

I sincerely hope they try to update the game so its less laggy. That would be wonderful. I have an iPhone 4, with no way to upgrade to a newer model, which sucks.

I have two vaults saved on my iPad 2: Vault 491 and Vault 0.

Vault 491 has around 30 some Dwellers and it's gone to utter heckie. Everyone is dying and everyone has radiation poisoning. All of my resources are almost gone and I'm low on power that diners and water rooms are shutting down. I can't make Stimpacks or Radaways as quickly as I need to and every time I rush something, the game crashes. I think it's because I had a lot of dwellers have babies at once and I couldn't keep up with the sudden wave of people.

I started Vault 0 today and things are going great. I have 15 people, 87% happiness. Things couldn't be better

^ Whoa! What happened in that first vault? Mine was laid out stupid so I had to re-arrange everything but I was only 5 rooms in so it wasn't a big deal.

I have been meaning to ask, how do you get rad poisoning? I have made the max RAs (same with Stims) but haven't used one. Do you happen to know how you can store more Stimpaks? Right now I am stuck at 25 and don't see a way to change it.

Once I had every floor with 2 people with weapons I haven't lost anyone to Radroaches thank goodness. That was so annoying.

I have 3 people exploring. I am kind of picky so I only send out people with 5+ S and power armor and a bunch of Stims/Radaway. I know some people have like 90% of their vault out exploring but I am still and don't want my vaulters to die.

I have 47 people in my vault. Most came from breeding. Like I mentioned, I had 5 people working the maxed out radio station and went to bed. When I woke up I had attracted 2 random people so I guess it does work. I was just expecting it to go faster I guess.

Mostly I am just breeding (I don't know why, but I call it breeding even though they're supposed to humans lol) and getting money to max out my stat building rooms. It gets expensive after a while. I need to rush more for the caps. I just always forget.

ETA: An iPad is really ideal to play this game. Even though my phone is a plus I keep clicking on the wrong person now that I have so many. But I really can't justify getting one just to play this game. I'd have no other use for it.

You get rad poisoning by either being in the Wasteland for a long time or when your water runs low. When your water runs low, everyone gradually gets radiation. As for storing more Stimpaks and such, you need storage rooms. And then, either build more or upgrade them to hold more.

I've been getting tons of radroaches lately. I had four people die from them because no one knows how to fight apparently That's in Vault 0 four.

I have no idea what happened in Vault 491. I think it's what I said; I suddenly had a TON of babies and I couldn't keep up.

It takes forever to kill them too! And then they go off into other rooms and it's just a huge mess...

Hopefully when it comes out on Android, they'll have some of the kinks worked out.

TBH I am surprised they haven't released an update yet for at least some of the bugs. If they don't within a week I am going to wonder if they can be fixed (easily/quick at least). It's super fun for me, I can't imagine playing this awesome game only to crash every other minute etc. I'd probably still play it...but it would stink.

They really are ridiculous. There are so many monsters in the Fallout series they could have chosen to be the '1-5 hit killers' like a Deathclaw or something and they chose Radroaches? I don't even get how that got approved by the higher ups creating this game. That actually brings me to an idea I hope they make in the future. It'd be fun for them to add a wider variety of creature invaders that come in and that way it would make sense to be able for a level 20 vaulter to be 1-5 hit killed.

I was looking up some tips/tricks on Gamefaq and was surprised SO many people are 'cheating' by changing their phone's clock. What's the fun in that? This whole game is about time management, waiting, leveling up etc. I mean, I honestly don't care if people cheat in a non-multiplayer (where it affects others negatively) game but I don't see the fun in that at all. The only reason I could see someone doing so would be if they're making a walkthrough - but I haven't seen one up yet. *shrugs*

I now have 50 vaulters which means I only have 4 more building types. I am really bummed.

I am begging Bethesda to PLEASE keep this well-updated. I could see this being epic if they are willing to put the time and money in to it. I am optimistic though as I have turned everyone I have showed it to on to playing it. I noticed some people shying away because they haven't played or don't like the Fallout series but you absolutely don't need to know anything about Fallout beyond a small few details like what a stimpack is etc. It's just a super fun game.

My hints if anyone is interested in playing this:

1) Start ASAP making sure you have enough room for 3 of the same building type horizontal for each building type. 3 chained is the max and it's a heck of a lot cheaper to increase productivity that way until you have enough money to blow on upgrading each room.

2) As soon as you can, have at least one person in each room be armed. Eventually you'll have everyone armed if you want to but start with one and then move to 2...quickly. Because like we stated before day 1 radroaches are easy, but by day 2 they are killers!

3) Rush, rush, and rush. In the beginning it's not needed too much (unless you're running out of resources) but once you're 'in' to the game it almost becomes necessary to get the money from it. It costs me 9000 to upgrade my training rooms at the moment. And even if it fails you valtees gain experience from it. But if you're going to do a lot of rushing IMO you should have at least 2 people with guns in the room or you run the risk of dying if you get roaches.

4) Before sending a person out to explore make sure they have the appropriate amount of stimpacks for however long the journey is planned to take. Once you have the med bay and a few intelligent workers in it, you'll have way more stimpacks than you can store anyway. But do keep a few handy in the vault for emergencies.

5) Have 2 guards at the entrance. I saw some people didn't even know they could 'live' there. And naturally give them the best armor you didn't send out with your explorers and give them at least 1 of your best weapons. If they don't stop the invasion in that room raiders can and will wreak havoc on your whole vault.

So yeah, I guess that's my TL;DR tips list. I hope it helps at least someone.

I currently have a 3-chained power generator with one upgrade. It gets me 40 power about every 3 and a half minutes

I try to keep all my rooms as productive as possible but I'm coming to the conclusion that I need to send Dwellers out to the Wasteland again for more outfits and weapons I kinda wish there was another way to get them. Oh well.

I also wish you could upgrade the vault door more. You can only upgrade it twice, once for 500 caps and again for 2000. But maybe that's just me... I find myself getting raided a lot

Oh, yes! I totally don't get the point of upgrading the vault door as it stand right now. They still get in and they don't take any damage breaking in do they? I too was surprised when I couldn't upgrade it any more. I guess if you don't assign people to the vault door room you get more time to pull people from another room, but I think that's all it's good for. lol

Yeah the upgraded vault door just buys you more time when raiders come and you can keep two Dwellers in the room to act as guards.

I really hate the raiders, they're kinda OP

They really need to make upgrading actually do something when it comes to the vault room. What does 'OP' mean in the context you're using it? I only know of original poster and on point. lol <--- Not hip.

I've been playing almost non-stop since the E3 announcement. It's a lot of fun, but I'm pretty awful at it so far. My first vault got out of hand too fast, so now I'm building up my second vault.

^ Maybe a picture would help? We could perhaps see something that could be improved upon. That's a bummer you both are struggling. I'm almost beginning to wonder if getting a single Fat Man day one made such a huge difference for me.

---

I unlocked the advanced version of the power and food rooms today. They are SO expensive and I heard they're not even worth it unless you can pay for 3 at once PLUS the upgrades. That's insane. I think I hit my first roadblock. I guess I'll be doing a lot of exploring for caps and rushing for no reason for caps.

---

I am always curious about what others' vaults look like so I thought I'd share mine if anyone's interested in snooping vault 245...

ETA: Are you hard closing the game Baemax? I don't know which device you're on but on my phone if you simply close a game it's still running in the background and you have to manually close the game for it to be completely closed. Just a thought though you probably already know this. But if you do I am curious...as long as my game is hard closed nothing ever happens to my vault. No one's ever injured and all the bars are in green. The only thing it does inactive is letting the explorers explore and finishing up training. Otherwise there are no changes to my vault. And obviously this goes on for a good chunk of time when I am sleeping - so about 8 hours or so.

I think they're working even faster to get the Android version out because of how incredibly successful (not a single one of my friends who I suggested this app to aren't in love with it like I am right now - that never happens with my friends) this game has been on Apple devices.

Yeah, a lot of people are worried it's going to release too close to F4. Hopefully not. It wouldn't make any sense for them financially either because if everyone is playing F4 no one is going to be playing Fallout Shelter, and thus buying, any of Fallout Shelter's in-game paid content. So *fingers crossed* it'll be out for you guys in 1-2 months!

But I can't wait for F4 either. I pre-ordered the $120 collector's edition for the PC last night from Best Buy. My whole life is going to be F4 for a loooooooong while methinks. It's funny, but even though last year was super annoying because my ancient gaming computer was dying bit by bit until I finally decided I needed to just purchase a new one; at least now I have a current high-end PC that will allow me to play F4!
