    For me, it's the only Fallout thing I enjoy from Bethesda. I play when I need to pass time and have fun leading my people to a good future and that kinda stuff.

    I like it, it's a pointless time-waster meant to distract you and it does its job well.
    Good to play while waiting for shit, like a bus or whatever.

    before hand, it was kind of nice, before it quickly turned into a boring micro-management game, but these new updates I'm seeing are finally putting some flesh into the game. Funny enough, FS is more entertaining than F4. LOL

    To FS's credit, you don't actually need to use the micro-payments to perform any action unlike some of the worst mobile games out there and it does it's job as a time-sink with more features being added to it nowadays. So, it's alright, nothing great but not awful.

    Honestly I forgot this even existed. It's too insignificant for me to have an opinion.

    I played it a little after it first came out on my iPhone, I just found it repetitive after a while of getting the vault dwellers to copulate, keep micromanaging the electric, food, water, enemies, and radroaches then repeat it all over again. For me it was just "Wait until you have to tap the thing in order to get thing to gain resources for a thing", just got dull.

    The moment I heard some kid saying 'hey, look what happened to my people in fallout bunker', I knew I absolutely hated it.

    Now that there are quests in it, its a better Fallout game than 3 and 4.

    Boring. im not into Dwarf fortress type games. They take too much brain power and I don't have that when I get off work.

    I guess it is not the worst game out there on mobile devices.

    That said, I forgot it existed after Fallout 4 came out and have not played it since.

    It was just dull and boring at one point, as you waited for your vault dwellers to come back.

    I also hated the fact that even with Enclave Power Armour most enemies could still damage you. O

    And the fact that you wanted to max out END before sending out them into the wastes, so they could get most hp.

    TL;DR - It is okayish, better than Fallout 4. Still a time waster with no substance.

    To me it was repetitive, basically: *click* *click* *click* send dweller out to scavenge *click* *click* *click* fucking cockroaches *click* then wait long periods in between.

    Sounds like classic fallout gameplay to me. Right click. Click enemy. Wait for him and his 8 buddies total their turns *3-4 minutes later* right click click enemy. Wait for him an his 8 buddies to take their turns. Repeat until dead.

    Edgy.

    It wasn't the best but I much prefer that over "Hide behind cover, shoot at enemy, rinse and repeat until they die or blow up into sausage chunks then repeat."

    Their both ultimately grindy and repetitive but the latter is more fun. I have seen far better TB combat than Fallout's.

    Give Fallout a break though, it was made in 1997. People back then were bragging about 200 mb of ram or something.
