Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, now on iOS!

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 behaviour 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 from across the world, with new prison, Banned Camp included in the latest update. Enjoy the fresh air of the outdoors, the sound of the breeze rustling the trees and the beautiful vista of the idyllic lake. But don’t be fooled, as this camp has a pretty serious electric fence to stop you from wandering too far, and the guards here are real mean!

Become an Escapist now!

Customer Reviews

This game is great! Except for one thing...

When I invested my money in this game I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with the results. Many famous YouTubers have played this game and apparently loved it. I thought because of all of the positive reception from a lot of people that I should buy the game. I tried it out on the lowest possible difficulty, however, (Center Perks) and met with a large challenge. Now it has been 7 days since I bought the app (in real time) and I still have not escaped from Center Perks! This game is very fun, but also very hard and whenever I even try to escape through the vents at even 1 am, I am greeted by the letter that sends me to solitary confinement or dinner. Not being able to escape after an entire week of gameplay leaves me discouraged for week two of owning this app. Other than its difficulty, it's a great game with fun, pixelated graphics and I am sure that a lot of effort was put into this magnificent game!

Annoying movement + boring gameplay

The movement mechanism almost made me stop playing immediately (virtual joystick), but I gave the game a chance since I just spent $4 on it. Ridiculous that it's not touch to move on a mobile platform. You have to navigate around small spaces and follow people, and keeping your finger on the joystick button the entire time is extremely annoying.

That aside, I just didn't find the gameplay very engaging. You have to be in specific places at specific times (roll call in the morning, cafeteria for meals) or you'll get in trouble, and the monotony of the daily routine got old really fast. I get that the concept makes the game more challenging, but there was just too much repetition.

AWESOME! Only one small problem though

Ok this game is probably one of my favorite mobile games now! Although there is a small problem... well there isn't that many prisons to be honest. I mean there is BUNCH of other prisons that I wish you could add them cause if you do than that's an all the way 5 stars baby! But seriously I've had this game for like two or three days i think and yet I'm already half way done! Seriously please put the other prisons on the game if not I will be very VERY disappointed...0 stars...
