Fallout Shelter touches over 1 million installs in less than a week for Android Android fans rejoiced last week when Bethesda announced that Fallout Shelter was finally headed to the platform.
The game, first announced at E3, should excite fans of the classic Sims games as it takes features of Sims, Sim City and Sim Tower.

In Fallout Shelter - a dystopian future - you create a "vault" underground to survive, basically building homes and trying to find a mate while protecting your vault from thieves.

Check it out on Google Play here.

I uninstalled this from my iDevices.
To me it felt like a gimmick and I found myself forgetting to play it for a few days at a time.

From some reports it wears thin pretty quickly and does not warrant replaying. But I still would have liked to give it a go.

I myself find it enjoyable, but it rewards you more the less you play it. To get any challenge you need to play it continuously.

An unlocked Verizon Motorola Droid4 Andre. I love the keyboard slider.

I can get the Cyanogen KitKat Mod on it. That might help but I doubt it. It's a bit underpowered. Fine for utilitarian tasks.

Whatever you think, I think you'll find it a pretty considered assessment. Cheers.
