Get a better view of the school sim with this dedicated high-resolution version for tablets!

The prison from Hard Time has closed down and re-opened as a school, but the challenge to survive and thrive remains the same. Live every hour of every day in real-time - from getting out of bed in the morning to attending a timetable full of classes, as you explore a city filled with interactive props. Picking up knowledge from each class helps you answer real questions in 10 different subjects, as you work towards the grades you need to graduate. But with over 100 fellow students walking the halls, an equally important popularity contest decides whether your days are filled with fun or fear.

Although the game is mostly free to play, you can upgrade to a "Private" education to remove ads and make the school your own - starting with a student of your own creation and saving your changes to all 10 classes as well as the teachers and civilians. Private students also benefit from a more continuous experience that never ends until you want it to.

In-game tutorials explain in more depth, but the basic controls are as follows:
A = Attack (on its own to kick, with a direction to punch)
G = Grapple / Throw
R = Run
P = Pick-Up / Drop (with a direction to prioritize objects, without to prioritize furniture)
T = Taunt (interact with props)

- Press ATTACK and RUN together to launch a powerful attack.
- Press any button with any direction (or none) in a grapple to trigger different moves.
- Press RUN and PICK-UP together to set fire to a small object (which can then be used to set fire to a large object).
- Touch the clock or health meter to pause the game for more options.
- Tap the speech bubbles to speed through conversations.

- If you find your device struggles to display lots of characters, considering keeping the "Population" option low.
- "Speed Up Frame Rate" sleeping will require good performance, so consider leaving it on "Speed Up Clock".
- Head to the "Display" options to tone down other features.

I like this game but


I really like this game but you can do a update that when you want to use your backpack there would be eight slots that you tap on one of them to bring out an item but you can only put eight items in it also can you add lockers where you can put your items in to interact with it you will have to tap t also you will have your own locker can you also make the houses bigger🤓😅😚😹 while everyone in your family has their own room can you also add a cutscene in the beginning that shows you and your family in a car going to your new home can you also add cars add also add new places from wrecked and extra lives

It’s Decent

Decent ..

It is a really awesome game, I won’t lie. But, it would be better if you had, a backpack? I Saw somebody’s review. They’re right, you should add a backpack with like, eight or more slots to put stuff in. You Know, you can like, pull it out whenever you want instead of having to drop it? It makes sense, it IS A school, after all. And, also, can you respond to our reviews please? I’d be happy if you Actually responded. Three - Four Stars.



Bad graphics but some things are just funny, like beating up some innocent person, running over people, and running from police in the school because you’ve sent someone to the hospital. It’s a good stress reliever.
