Craft, Steal, Brawl and ESCAPE! You’ve landed yourself in prison again, and your only chance is to engineer an escape by any means necessary. How you do it is up to you! Why not cause a prison riot? Or dig a tunnel right under the walls of the prison? Or even steal a guard uniform to blend in with your captors? The Escapists is a unique prison sandbox experience with lots of items to craft and combine in your daring quest for freedom. Life in prison will keep you on your toes with the strict rules that you’ll have to break. The guards are out to stop any escape attempts, so you’ll have to avoid suspicious behaviour by attending roll calls, working a prison job and hiding your stolen craftables. Escaping is what you do best, and you’ll have to prove your skills in a variety of challenging prisons from across the world.

It’s enjoyable trying multiple different strategies and working out what method pays off the best. The fact that you feel almost solely restricted by your imagination is an even bigger advantage. It really is the kind of game you’ll wonder why no one has done before.
The Escapists may not be a perfect port but for its price it's a worthy addition to the mobile gamer's library.
The Escapists is extremely clever. The messages it sends through its simple gameplay mechanics are beautifully laid out, and the humour shows a balanced usage of stereotypes in a way that makes it fun, yet non offensive… but it does often fail at being an entertaining game experience, and it promises things through the very irrelevant tutorial, which doesn't help at all. While escaping is the goal and what the player naturally desires, most of the time will be spent playing by the prison's rules. The break will be satisfying, but the satisfaction will be short lived when rewarded with a stricter prison, with even stricter schedules and rules, real life, or just the next prison that got unlocked.
