The ultimate sandbox escape experience now includes an additional prison, Alcatraz, in the latest game update!

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 behavior 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, now including the iconic Alcatraz. Many have tried to Escape from one of the most famous prisons in the world. Many have failed. Now is your chance to add your name to this list of ‘famous’ escape attempts as you try and escape from one of America’s strongest prisons.

    Great game! I had a few problems at first which they cleared up quickly! ☺ Wish you could use an Xbox controller though. ! Things to add: More of an detailed adventure and a wider range of gameplay. AND a mini exert in the beginning where it chooses where you go to prison. Full Review

    This is a great game. The graphics, the gameplay, the soundtrack, the AI. Everything is perfect. However, I have played the Xbox and PC version and I noticed some unusual behaviour with the mobile version. All inmates on Center Perks had no weapon, or a reasonably good weapon as I spawned. I punched one of the inmates at morning rollcall to find that the guards hit them and not me. I then went on to steal their nunchuks (again in front of guards) and the guards didn't do a thing about it. At breakfast, the guards just watched as I beat up fellow guards and when it was lockdown, I could easily throw a riot as all the guards were bunched up in a corner. Then, I escaped at 10:03 (world record?). The guard system for both Center Perks and Stalag Flucht make it extremely easy to escape on the first day. Overall, however, this game is brilliant and I can't wait for the sequel. Full Review

    It's very good but on the first three levels all you need to do is knock out some guard and the gates open but other than that it's an amazing game Full Review

    Best Game ever I was looking up prison escape games when I came across this. Becuase it cost I had put it on my digital wishlist to bookmark it for later then did some research and decided to download it. It is such a great game I play every spare second I have even at work. If you have the money download this game you will love it. Full Review

    It is a great concept that was produce very near to perfection. My only problem with the game is that the whole thing runs too fast. Everyone is zipping around the screen so it's hard to even make out who they are before they disappear, nevermind trying to do quest correctly. And the time in the game itself feels too quick to, with periods of activity passing by before anything can get done. This game could be perfect if the whole thing was slowed down to about 75% and they added controller support. Full Review

    Phone: Samsung Galaxy 6S. The Escapists Version: 1.0.3. I only have two(2) things keeping this from being full 5 stars. One is a bug where the Recent and Back sensor buttons on my phone are both constantly glowing during gameplay. Second thing is the lack of community maps, but I man not have unlocked that yet seeing as I haven't beaten the game yet. Other than those it's very enjoyable! Full Review

    Love this game! This takes escape to a whole new level. As a tip, if it says "license invalid" it's because this game requires Wi-Fi/data even though it barely uses any. Full Review

    I love this game, I've seen YouTubers play this game on Xbox, and etc. I love how realistic the game is about the prison life and with the cute little people. If wanting some suggestions to add in the game for updates i have a few things/suggestions, you could add more different dialog to the police cause many prisoners and police repeat the same text, add female prisoners, add where you can have your most closet trusted prisoners follow you like a companion, and lastly add possibly K-9 dogs that you could become friends with or mabye add a store to buy your own pet! Like a cat, dog, parrot, ferret, that's all my suggestions for now. I hope you add the pet idea I'd really like to see it in the game Full Review

    I love the gameplay, no doubt about it. But there are also problems that just don't make sense.When all the guards are chasing me, and I have a key, it sends me to confinement.But I'm trying to escape from the guards.. and I wasn't trying to hide the key either. Full Review

    Amazing game. I am very glad I got this game, because it was made beautifully. It is very open ended, so you can plan virtually whatever type of escape you want. The only way this game could be better if it had multiplayer, if you could plan escapes with npcs, and if players could make and share maps of their own. Full Review

    This game is time consuming when you have nothing to do but also doesn't drag on. It's not repeative at all. There's multiple ways to escape which makes it very interesting. The crafting system is not too complex but also not too simple. Every game mechanic of this game is well balanced. Overall it's just fun to play and worth the money. ^~^ The only problem with the game is when you are on lockdown and knock out a officer and take his key to try and escape, when the officer wakes it will send you to solitary confinement for stealing to key in the middle of you trying to excape. It's annoying but you can get around that problem if you have enough plastic keys (of the color you need). But that also makes it kinda pointless to try break out during a lockdown. Also to the developers, could you possibly make a female prison? Overall I still love the game tho :) Full Review
