Build and Manage a Maximum Security Prison!

Escape from reality but not from your custom-made jail! Prison Architect: Mobile challenges you to build and manage a maximum security prison, from laying out cell blocks and inmate facilities, to managing staff pay and prisoner morale. From layout to execution (literally, in some cases), you are the architect, the warden, and the enforcer.

Prison designs will include basic necessities like cells, canteens, guard rooms, and infrastructure, but players can also include features like solitary confinement, workout areas, and even an execution chamber. The tablet version comes with enough to get started, with additional story-driven campaign chapters and more features available as premium content.

Prison Architect: Mobile includes:
- Build and manage a prison to house a variety of different prisoners
- Juggle inmate needs with security concerns, infrastructure, and the ever-looming budget
- Follow the story in Campaign Mode to learn new prison-building techniques and get to know life behind bars through a series of cutscenes and objectives
- Unlock more Campaign chapters with one-time purchases
- Violent Offenders: Manage different types of criminals and keep control through floods, fires, fights, and full-blown riots

Introversion Software, developers of critically acclaimed games, bring you a new mobile version of their award-winning PC hit. Together with the master strategists at Paradox Interactive, Introversion's Prison Architect: Mobile will provide you with enough challenging fun to last an entire life sentence!

Things they need to fix and add



1.Dead bodies are pilling up everywhere and guards and medic staff are not doing anything about it and they just leave it there and traffic at the roads will happen

2. I built a mail room and I see a bunch of mails at the delivery place and guards just leave it there like my 50 inmates outside complaining

3.When the guards arrest the prisoners they leave at one spot like at hallways and never do anything about it

4.Riots will happen randomly for no reason

5.Every time you expand your prison it kicks you out

5.You also lag for no reason at all

Good Port

Ryan Kohel

This is a very good mobile port of the Prison Architect game. The mobile port is almost exactly like the PC game and I would recommend this game to other people. There is one minor bug I have noticed, however, where the policies get reset after you save, suspend the app, and load your prison again. Slightly gameplay affecting, but it is very annoying. Maybe I am just a noob and you have to quit your prison somehow before suspending the app to prevent this. Hopefully, this bug will be fixed in the next version and maybe I will make a support ticket on the website or something. Overall, this is a good game and I have had no crashing.

Almost awesome.


I bought the full unlock and except for one major problem it's amazing. The problem is that my prison that I designed and built crashed every single time I touch "new program" so I. Stuck with this prison that basically can't progress much more at all. Can't set up any education or training or counseling etc.
real irritating. I'm using a iPad Air 2 with most recent iOS update available, I restarted and have no background apps running at all, so it can only be a bug bug in the app.
However everything was going fine for the first several hours and were it not for this game breaking crash I'd have given 5 stars easy.
