Fallout Shelter for PC is a free strategy and economic game created by Bethesda studio, known from The Elder Scrolls series or newer versions of postapocalyptic RPG series Fallout. The production tells the story of the life of the inhabitants of one of the shelters, which we have to manage, taking care of the basic needs of its tenants, expanding with more rooms and more. The title was originally published on mobile platforms operating under the control of iOS and Android operating systems. Only after a year the developer decided to release a conversion for personal computers. This edition at the start included all the updates released for mobile versions, including update 1.6, which added a modified combat system and special missions to the production.
Gameplay in Fallout Shelter for the PC platform, AND, etc. is based primarily on the expansion of the location with more rooms. Thanks to them, new members of the community have a place to live and satisfy their needs. On a par with the living space, we must also take care of their morale - if we send them to work in the place where they come true, they will be much happier. We can increase the population in two ways: when we put a man and a woman in one room, they will be able to apply for a child. Occasionally, characters from outside will knock on to the crypt gates, which we can accept, but independent extension of the species is a much more reliable option.
During the game in Fallout Shelter We have to take care of the resources that we gain not only during work in individual rooms, but also during our outdoor expeditions. As the world of Fallout is full of dangers, daredevils need to be equipped with weapons and protective clothing. Over time, characters gain experience, thanks to which they have better statistics, which in turn translates into their effectiveness. Sometimes we also fight inside the shelter - while defending against the invasion of bandits or the attack of mutant creatures that got inside.
The production uses the popular Unity technology, which has proved its worth in a number of games for mobile devices, computers and consoles. Famous projects based on this engine include Angry Birds 2, Pillars of Eternity or Wasteland 2.
The Fallout Shelter for the PC platform, AND, etc. is based on a free-to-play business model, but it does not use an intrusive micropayment system. There are no paid elements in the game, thanks to which we can speed up the processes taking place during the game. The only form of micropayment is an option to buy special boxes in which we can draw e.g. cult characters from the Fallout universe or caps acting as currency.
The game turned out to be a great success and in the first two weeks since its release it has earned more than $5 million.
