Any games similar to Fallout?

I'm looking for something similar to Fallout for my iPod Touch. So far The Quest is the closest thing I've seen.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

The first two Fallout games, i.e. traditional western cRPGs?

Yupper. Although if there were an iPhone game like Fallout 3, I'd be all over it

I never played Fallout, but as you say The Quest is close to it, you might want to try Undercroft too.

When I asked this in the "Mass what should I get?" Thread someone told me that xenome when it gets re-release is the closest thing to fallout 3.

I'm going to try Xenome. I really want to see something in the vein of the original 2 fallouts. Or something like shadowrun for the super nes even.

Fall of Angels has a similar puzzle solving world exploration vibe as original Fallouts albiet not in a postapocalyptic setting and sans water crystals. Xenome has a similar setting as does Phantasy Star II (JRPG) and perhaps Steam Pirates (on my "to play" list). I haven't gotten around to Alternative Reality The City / The Dungeon but those also show promise in terms of exploration depth.

AppStore definitely needs more steam punk. If you play PC games there was a Fallout era game called Arcanium that's worth loading up if you can find it.

Yeah, I think Arcanium was made by former Fallout devs (Troika). Might also want to check out Wasteland, made by Brian Fargo before Fallout. He just got a ton of money on Kickstarter to make Wasteland 2, so keep an eye out for that.

Hey man, don't know if you're still looking, but there's a game called Hardboiled, it's only $0.99 and it's inspired by the original 2 Fallout games. The story isn't great, but it's got very similar gameplay.
