Welcome to Fallout Shelter!
I played it on mobile and I loved it. Somehow, Bethesda looked at a port to console and thought, “what if we just made it impossible to control? Yes! That’s the ticket.”
You cannot tell me that is as easy or intuitive as tap & drag. It’s just not. It’s like trying to ride a Radroach; wiggly, fiddly and not at all robust (I imagine).
The controls are the ONLY reason why; although I got to lvl 100 on the mobile version, there’s no chance these dwellers will live past level ten. I just can’t get them out of harms way fast enough.
Hear more about it on this week’s episode of Retro Rebel Podcast.
