Experience what it is like to actually be a fugitive on the run. On The Lam was designed to be the most realistic fugitive simulator game ever made. Many hours of researching actual fugitive cases were spent to bring the most authentic and realistic experience to the player. The goal is to escape the country by any means necessary.
*Three types of fugitive scenarios: Murder, prison escape, and terrorist attack. Each made to simulate what it would really like to be a fugitive after committing those crimes.
*Every decision you make has an impact on how successful you are.
*Call family or friends to help you out. Some may even turn you into the cops.
*Break into houses for shelter, items, or to rob house owners.
*Steal cars, rob stores, hide out at motels, etc.
*Player has stats that include hunger, thirst, tiredness, paranoia, etc. These must be properly balanced for a successful escape.
*Player can get injured and suffer sickness. Items such as medicine and drugs can effect these.
*Gather items to help you escape. Items include clothes, tools, food, drink, weapons, and drugs.
*Change your clothes to prevent pedestrians and cops from recognizing you.
*Events take place based on time, i.e. if you steal a car at 3:00 AM the crime will take longer to get reported than if you did it during the day.
*Player can pick a perk at the start of the game, each unique to help you escape.
*Player is affected by weather and temperature. Weather is determined by the player location in the US(desert,forest,etc), what the player is wearing, and if it is night or day.
*If cops are nearby, player can hide out in the woods, buildings, and more. Each hiding place has certain advantages and disadvantages.
*Areas on the map light up to let you know when police know your last known location.
*Realistic mode – In this mode you will not be notified about the cops movements, when a pedestrian reports you, etc.
What's New in Version 1.3
Quick bug fix for additional crashes.
I really like the concept. It’s also a very simple game that I can play when I have a little time to kill. But it still has so bugs that need fixing. The game still crashes, very few times and usually after I’ve lost the game, but it crashes none the less. And also I can’t win. I don’t mean that the game is too hard, though it is challenging, I mean literally right when I win it gets stuck on on a screen that says “Loading post game status.” and nothing happens. Despite these faults the game is fun and kind of addicting. It’s sort of like a slot machine, just about anything can happen you could get completely screwed over in the first 2 minutes, or you could have a good run from the law until you either cross the border, or lose. All this game really needs is more tweaking and it could be really good.
Very good idea
I like the overall idea of the game, the biggest complaint that I had about it were the glitches with the pawn shop and the loading. More features would also be nice, but overall it's a decent game, I would recommend it for the price.
This game seems like a very interesting concept but it has way too many bugs. I constantly get an error message in the top left corner. Controls and text are waaay too small. Instructions are not user friendly. This game is not optimized for iphone 5 like it says it is. This game is great in theory but probably has the worst execution of any game I have ever played.
