Reddit user Dingleberry_Jones said: "So I was enjoying Fallout Shelter on Android but today when I went to start it it just would quit before the main menu. Upon further investigation my save file is now 0KB, meaning it somehow got corrupted. But I did purchase lunchboxes so I guess just wasted my money."
Another user named "B0B0oo7" said: "I was sending out a dweller to explore, and right as I dropped him on the wasteland a raider attack started. My game froze and shutdown. I've been unable to open the save since. I've tried closing the app/powering off the ipad but it hasnt helped."
Going_Hamm replied to B0B0oo7: "This just happened to me actually. I was removing a dead dweller from the wasteland and my game just crashed. Tried reloading it a couple of times and it goes to the menu page and just stops working. Tried restarting my phone and that didn't help either. Hopefully they send a bug fix update or something soon. I had 160 dwellers"
