Last updated on June 1, 2017 by

Fallout Shelter, one game in the Fallout series, is a simulation game developed by Bethesda Game Studios. In this game, players are the overseer of the shelter, in which people escape from dangers, generate power, water and food, and live. This interesting game received a high reputation since its release. It started as a mobile game in 2015 but now has PC and Xbox versions. In this post, we will show you how to play Fallout Shelter on PC, including Windows PC and Mac.

Two Options to Play Fallout Shelter on PC

Run Fallout Shelter on a Windows Computer

Last year, Bethesda published the game for Microsoft Windows, so fans of this game can enjoy it on their Windows PCs. The process is easy.

  • Search “Fallout Shelter” on Google and go to the official game website. On the website, you will see several download addresses: App Store, Google Play, PC, and so on. Click “DOWNLOAD ON PC NOW”.
  • After this, you can get BethesdaNetLauncher and launch it.
  • Once done, choose the game “Fallout Shelter”, and install it

When the instructions above are completed, you can start to play Fallout Shelter on PC. In the game, you can double click to take a closer look at the room. Scrolling the mouse wheel will zoom in and out. And hitting “WASD” on the keyboard will move the screen.

However, if you want to play the game on multiple devices, it is not easy to sync the game data. Logging in with the same account on different platforms seems not work, and you have to transfer the saved files between the devices.

Run Fallout Shelter on Mac

As we mentioned above, this game is available on Windows computer. But it does not have a Mac version. If game lovers want to play Fallout Shelter on Mac, here an application to realize this desire.

ApowerMirror is a desktop program that can display phone screen on Mac and Windows PC. Both Android and iOS device owners can see the contents of their phone on the computer.

As the game progresses, you will build many levels and numerous rooms, thus, you can hardly view what is going on in each room on the small phone screen, especially when you have to find the mysterious stranger in the shelter. In this case, you can utilize the “Full screen” feature of this program when playing the game. What’s more, this app can do more than mirroring screen. For Android users, you can use the mouse to play the game on Mac. Below is how to play Fallout Shelter on PC.

For Android:

  • Click the button to download and install the software on your Mac.


  • Use the USB cable to connect your Android to Mac. When the window pops up on your mobile, tap “START NOW” to begin mirroring and controlling.
  • Utilize the mouse to open the game on your Android.

You can click the screen to see the condition of each dweller in the game or double click one room to take a closer look. Different from the instruction in the first method, scrolling the mouse wheel will move the screen. Moreover, zooming in or out is not supported in this app, which may be a disadvantage for some users.

For iOS:

Simply connect your mobile device and Mac to the same WiFi. Swipe up to run the Control Center on iOS device, tap on “AirPlay Mirroring” and choose your Mac to build the connection.

Note: This program does not support controlling iOS device from PC yet.

With this method, you do not need to worry about how to sync game data to different platforms. Although we just mentioned how it works on Mac, this application also runs well on Windows PC. If you like this program, install it now and play Fallout Shelter on PC.
