With its speedy success, Fallout Shelter charted 3rd position in iOS App Store ranking which was earlier blocked by Candy Crush Saga for a long time. Now Candy Crush Saga stays at 4th position.
So, what made this game touch the success too earlier? Let’s see inside.
What Fallout Shelter is all about?
Fallout Shelter is a free-to-play mobile game involves vault building, manage people inside the vault and complete the given tasks like build the room, generate power, gather resources, etc. The good thing within game is that you will get everything you and your citizens need to build a vault at first stage. You can control people and decide who will live in your vault. But conditions are you have to keep them all happy. Once you are done with vault building and citizens, your next task is building another vault and create new generation and the process goes on.
Fallout Shelter’s gameplay will refresh the memories of Sim City and XCom. People that live in your vault own skills to create a better community and to help you build a vault successfully. You can assign them any job. In short, all will be in your control with a responsibility of keeping them happy. You can reward your people with new outfits, items and weapons.
I believe that Gameplay itself is majorly responsible for the success. It gives a whole power in hands of players which makes them feel proud. And added responsibilities make players feel like a prime minister of virtual world.
In-app purchases include lots of lunch boxes for players. Don’t feel hungry as these lunch boxes are not filled with your favourite foods. Instead they provide water, electricity and food whenever you or your people need them.
Having lunch boxes as a part of in-app purchases is totally a new, exciting and unique concept that players appreciated the most. Players got mad enough that they agree to pay for such boxes – this is the reason why this game surpassed Candy Crush Saga in terms of revenue. Fallout Shelter sold lunch boxes like hot cakes.
After Gameplay, in-app purchases should be given the credit for game’s success. Mobile game developers have designed the concept in a way that it can make gamers reach deep into their pockets for purchase within seconds.
Fallout Shelter is a pretty popular game due to many of its worthy qualities like GamePlay and in-app purchases. Impressive point of game is that it doesn’t compulsion the purchasing of in-app items as users can easily go with the game as far as they want without making purchases.
