Get Started

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to get started with the Fallout Shelter game for your iPhone 6.

Steps

  1. 1
    Once the game has launched, tap "ENTER VAULT"
    .
    This will take us into the first part of the game. To get started, we need to create a new vault. The concept of vaults is that they are shelters where people stay to survive the end of the world. Our job is to manage these people. That's what the game is built on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    Tap "NEW VAULT"
    .
    It says, "Now you have to determine the ID of your Vault. Choose carefully, because once you select an ID, it can't be changed!" Create carefully. We can later delete vaults, but we can't change them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    Tap "OK"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Here is the ID of our vault
    .
    Is that good enough? It's good enough for us. 268. Tap "CREATE VAULT".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Our vault has been created
    .
    We see in the back, vault number "268". It says, "Congratulations! Vault-Tec has selected you to be the Overseer of Vault 268."
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    What the vault does is it keeps people safe from the dangers
    .
    In the back, we see an apocalyptic explosion. We have a vault where everyone is staying and saving.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    What we need to do is maintain the vault
    .
    Save people from having bad things happen to them. Make sure they stay happy. Keep everyone safe. The game is a bit like Civilization. Those who have played Sid Meier's Civilization or some of the expansion games, the old Warcraft games, Might and Magic, will know that each of those games requires players to move along through creating and managing a society.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    We will get a pop-up that tells us about some things we can shop for or buy
    .
    We'll deal with those later. For now, what we're going to do is tap on "OK".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    As we start the vault, we have to expand things
    .
    At the bottom of the screen is a "HELPFUL HINT" box. This is a quick little tutorial that goes over the basic concepts. We can skip it if we'd like to by closing the app and restarting. We will walk you through the tutorial quickly though. Press "OK".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    We've got a little hammer in the top right-hand corner
    .
    This is our construction or build icon. Tap to open the menu that allows us to pick what we're going to build.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Survey the options
    .
    At the moment, we only have one option, "POWER GENERATOR". This is all we have to build. However, as we improve and increase our vault, we will have more options here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Tap one time on the "POWER GENERATOR"
    .
    We're going to build the power generator.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    When we're ready to build it, tap on "BUILD"
    .
    The power generator is going to build. Each time we build something, we'll have an option for where we can place that thing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We have three options
    .
    The green hammer icons are potential build sites for our power generator. Tap one to select it. We will choose the bottom right one. There's our little vault, it's been built. In order to make it work, we need people to work.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Tap on "OK"
    .
    Here are some new people showing up, or running from the apocalypse, depending. We need to have the door open for them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Tap on "OK"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Tap on a person
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    See what their details are
    .
    Here is a person. This person is level 1. This person doesn't have a great deal of special stats. However, we can learn where the person can be used the best, or what's best about them. There's some clothes, some fight ability, there's a lovely little beard. The person's not really happy though. Tap on "OK".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Assign the person
    .
    Tap and hold and drag them to where we want to put them. So let's do that. Let's tap and hold this person.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Let's drag him on into the power room
    .
    For us, this is the bottom right room. Now that person is going to go into the power room.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Let's put the second person there as well
    .
    Press and hold her.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Drag her into the power room and release
    .
    If we drag a person to the wrong room, we can always drag them off of that room and into the other room. So now we have two people in our little area, and they are going to begin working in the power room. When they are working in the power room, this is going to power up things and allow us to accomplish more in our lovely little game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Now we'll see that Fallout Shelter is telling us that when "DWELLERS are working, the room will start PRODUCING RESOURCES
    .
    DOUBLE TAP on a ROOM to take a closer look." Any room can be double-tapped. For the tutorial purposes, we'll double-tap the power room.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Look into the room
    .
    People are chatting, talking, a little bit of ad lib and commentary. Good stuff. If we need to move things quickly, we can rush them. However, remember that rushing will cost us resources. Right now, we have free resources that we've started off with. However, as time passes, we will use them. We will have the option to use the store to buy more, which we discuss in another tutorial on how to use the Fallout Shelter store. For now, let's tap on "OK".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    To rush, tap on "RUSH"
    .
    The icon is a stopwatch along the bottom of the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Look at "REWARDS" to see what we'll get
    .
    Tap "ACTIVATE" to proceed, or "CLOSE" to cancel.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Let's tap "ACTIVATE"
    .
    It's going to speed things up. Everyone's going to zoom along and there we go, we've got our power set up. Now we have a little bit more juice. Let's see what happens now.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Tap on "OK"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Let's build a second room
    .
    Tap the build icon. We can have food production with the "DINER".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Tap the "DINER" card
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    Tap "BUILD"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    Tap a hammer to choose the diner site
    .
    Let's choose the top right. This tutorial will continue on in this manner, where we build, increase, add.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    Tap the build icon in the upper-right corner of the screen
    .
    We need another room. Now we have the option to build a water treatment area.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Tap on "WATER TREATMENT"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Tap on "BUILD"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Tap a hammer to place the water treatment room
    .
    We will choose the bottom right. This will just continue on like this as we build things.
