Great port but...

I have been waiting for this game to come to mobile and now its finally here! So far the gameplay is amazing and the visual are spectacular! Talking about visuals... the only problem I might have with this port is that the screen is really, and i mean really zoomed in, it makes the visuals a bit sharp and clunky in my opinion. If by any chance you may zoom out the screen just a bit, preferably like that in consoles and PC. I understand that the reason you guys made the screen so zoomed in is because in some small phones it will be very hard to see and focus in on anything, however; adding a(n) option for this would be amazing. There could be a setting to adjust the screen zoom. It gets very annoying at times, especially on ipad, how the screen is so zoomed in, not to mention the occasional frame drops. Please add a zoom in and out option. The controls are perfect, its just the visuals and frame drops that need fixing in my opinion, im sure others can agree with me on this. Apart from that, fascinating job! Job well done, an almost perfect port for mobile, I appreciate the work you guys put into your games and this port. Please I hope you may read this review and take it into consideration (for everyone else just reading the reviews, please consider this as well). Thank you so much for reading!

Pretty Good

I have the first Escapists game, too. This one has improved by a lot and typically works very smoothly and is very fun to play, and I like that multiplayer is implemented. However... there’s some issues..
The game drains battery really fast. Like, really fast. But I can’t blame them, it could just be my phone. So, that’s not exactly an issue, I suppose. Whenever I play multiplayer with someone else, it takes a long time to load and if I drag the Notification Center down the session stops and I have to redo the process. Sometimes my phone crashes during that process. I have an iPhone 6 and I really hope you can fix the Notification Center issue with multiplayer, as well as the buggy crashing! Thanks for making this awesome game!

Great Game

It’s a really good game I’m not going to lie. But it was really short. There weren’t any DLC or custom prisons like on different consoles. Think about it, people pay $6.99 just to escape like 5 prisons. I really like the game. It’s fun to escape different ways but it gets boring escaping the same prison 6 different times. Please add more prisons or DLC or custom prisons. I’m not saying it’s a bad game, I’m saying it’s a good game with only a little bit of prisons. I escaped all of the prisons in 1 day. Plz add more things to make it worth my money. But I have to tell you guys good job and keep on making great quality games! 👍🏼💪🏼✋🏼
