About this game

Content Rating: Teen


You may not be in an open prison, but you are in an open world where in between attending rollcalls, mealtimes and doing your chores you should grab every chance to plan your escape. Do you do favours for other inmates earning money and boosting their opinion of you along the way? Or workout and become stronger? Read to increase your skills or spend your time crafting items into homemade weapons and tools. What about working diligently in your prison job, to gain promotions to new jobs with better benefits? Keep a low profile or go out all guns blazing, as long as you escape in the end, that’s all that matters.

Ultimately, The Escapists is a fun, entertaining and fiendishly complex puzzle game that's perfect for patient gamers who love to experiment and figure things out for themselves. However, those who like a little more direction and immediacy to their action should probably steer clear.

The Escapists is a great game that doesn’t bust the bank and will give your hours of enjoyment as you plot, craft and deploy your plans for your great prison break. I could find little wrong with this game even with the old school graphics, which may not be everyone’s cup of tea, as they don’t distract from how fun this gem of a title it is.

The Escapists implores you to dig deep for your strategy, but it doesn't offer enough excitement along the way. The concept is sound; I just wish I had more fun. I like the idea of The Escapists better than the game it actually is. Escaping prison should be more exciting than this. Strategizing is fun, but the amount of repetition gets tiresome.
