Any iPad games like Fallout?

Any shooter/rpg for the iPad, most particularly with something like the VATS combat system? I'm not very good at aiming without a mouse.

I clicked on the thread thinking you are looking for games similar to the classic 3rd person, top down RPG. I guess that just TA's way to tell me im getting to old.

As for an iOS FPS game with a VATS system of sorts, there is none.

And since you are looking for RPG type FPS games without much aiming required, there are a few options, but these are turn-based if you are interested.

Doom RPG
Wolfenstein RPG

I know there are a few more, but they arent FPS conversions anymore, but more traditional fantasy first person RPGs, with melee combat usually.

Hey EP I thought the same thing. I personally haven't play the first two or tactics but I have them on my list on gog.com.

Just curious though, what were you going to recommend if looking for something similar to the first couple Fallout games?

Probably nothing you dont already know, and there isnt much options either. There's Baldur's Gate and KOTOR which are both for iPad.

As far as the mood goes, i somehow get the same vibe in Trial by Survival, Alien Shooter and Extraction Project, even though they are entirely different game genres. I guess Dead Ahead somehow gives me the same feel, but in a much lesser way.

I 'd like to think Deus Ex The Fall is somehow in the same vein, but the stealth-centric elements of the game overshadows the rest of its components.

There really isnt much in the post-apocalyptic theme in iOS games, other than Zombie Apocalypse, and Robot Apocalypse (EPOCH., comes to mind). Oh and then there's TheEndApp, which is one of my favorite endless runners ever. LOL

Just remembered... Mass Effect Infiltrator has a tap to aim system (it's a control option under... um... options.)

You might like it as a shooter without the usual aiming methods found in most shooters on iOS.

I feel as if none of the replies helped the OP much.

Simply put, there are no games like that out for iOS. At least, not yet.

I did mention that there isnt one.

I wonder which post in this thread so far is the most useless.

The one where you suggested Doom RPG and Wolfenstein RPG. No offense but those were some really kick-into the dark suggestions. Oh and also because there is no Doom rpg.

I was looking at infinity project 2 and I quite like the look of that, though of course there's nothing VATS like about it. Any opinions?

I have KOTOR, Deus Ex, Mass Effect and Baldurs Gate, all of them good games. I'm not sure I knew about the optional tap to shoot of mass effect though, might be worth a re-download. Baldurs gives me a headache it's so dark and squinty, so I bought that again on the PC. I like the optional sneaky ways of Deus Ex, still playing that

I've looked at xenome again and again but I really don't like playing games on a x2 screen.
