Help, I need somebody. Help, not just anybody. HEEEEEELP. I must be coming down with something. Something is messing with my head. Must be a head cold, or high fever - those cause lowering of judgement, right? I think I actually… like… a mobile game.
This story starts long, long ago, as far back as yesterday.
Fallout Shelter is on Android now? Yeeeeeeeeeesssssssss gtf in— Pike the Tiny Elf (@pikestaff) August 13, 2015
My interest was piqued. I filed it in my mental to-do lists (because those are totally dependable) and was going to check into it later. I remember reading Syp’s post about it a while back on Fallout Shelter. I thought I’d give it a try, and then promptly disappointed because it was iOS only. But a glimmer of hope was to be had, as there was plans to release it on Android later. That time has come.

The to-do didn’t even have time to gather any dust as the next thing I see is a follow-up tweet.

This fell right into my lap. Not even 24 hours later, I’m the proud overseer of vaults 777 and 213. Vault 777 has a specialization of wasteful spending (my first vault) and the second - Vault 213 - specialized in wasteland explorers (thought it might be a good thing to do). So far, both vaults survived my reckless management and 777 successfully defended itself from a pack of raiders. That vault feels lucky, I just know it.
I had no idea that mobile games could actually be g… goo…. *forcing myself* good… *gasp*

If you have an Android and want to try a mobile game that actually is worth looking into, might I suggest trying Fallout Shelter. Just a word of warning, I checked up on my vaults twice in the middle of writing this post. Sorry, make that three times.
