    Many fans of the Fallout series were notably disappointed that the newest game in the series came to the Apple iPhone first and skipped Android. That game is called Fallout Shelter, and it's basically a fun little strategy and resource management game that puts you in charge of your very own Vault-Tec vault and all of its inhabitants.

    The game has received rave reviews and is one of the fast growing and most downloaded mobile games on the planet. In fact, Bethesda developers themselves didn't expect it to be as successful as it became, especially in such a short amount of time.

    Luckily, it's not exclusive to Apple anymore! Yep! You can now grab the game as a free download on the Google Play Store! Here's a quick flavorful description followed by a link to grab it (check out the video above if you are still on the fence):

    Here's the Play Store Link: Fallout Shelter - Android Apps on Google Play

    I'll be giving this one a shot. Not the biggest fan of the console games, but this looks like a fun little time waster.

    Fallout 4 will be the Game of the Year.

    I had the one before that on the 360, but couldn't really get into it. My cousins love those style games and I love RPGs, but there was just something that kept me from really enjoying playing it. Maybe I'll give 4 a try. I'll definitely play around with this little game though.

    Except that my phone doesn't seem to want to install it right now. On my third try. If it fails this time, I'll wait until I'm home on my faster network instead of using the slow public connection we have here at work.

    It's a pretty cool society management game. It's pretty basic and is fueled by IAPs for those people that may not have enough patience to wait things out.

    As long as it's not super slow, I'll give it a go. I like some of these games that I can tinker with a little bit, then put down for a while, then pick back up later when I have a minute and not still have to wait to be able to do SOMETHING.

    It's definitely a game you lay down and come back to later.

    It's like Tiny Death Star, which I kind of liked, but didn't really get into. Maybe this one will be different.

    It was really fun when I was messing with it on iOS. Looks like it's the same concept here except they kept the bugs from iOS. It looks like a lot of constant crashes.

    Yeah I spoke too soon. I haven't had one yet except when trying to resume and rotate the screen at the same time
