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, now including the iconic Alcatraz. Many have tried to Escape from one of the most famous prisons in the world. Many have failed. Now is your chance to add your name to this list of ‘famous’ escape attempts as you try and escape from one of America’s strongest prisons.

Become an Escapist now!

Amazing Game!

This game is extremely fun and has the perfect balance of difficulty. It has hours of gameplay and never gets old. If you are thinking of buying this, you should most definitely get it. I do have some suggestions for the game creators though:
1) Add a map editor. That way, if you escape all of the prisons, you can still enjoy additional gameplay.
2) Add all of the tools and items from the pc version to mobile. I would like to have more weapon variety.
3) Add a "hard mode" to the options where you can ramp the difficulty up to the level on the pc version.
All in all, Team 17 did an amazing job with this game, and I would highly recommend this game to anyone that likes strategy games.

Prison editor

I love the game so much and would love to give it a 5 star rating but after beating every prison available there's nothing really to do afterwards. I know you just released the Alcatraz prison and it actually seems quite easy to escape from. I just started that one but aside from that one new prison. There just isn't much to do. We need some kind of editor or creator so we can make our own different and difficult prisons and then also a way to share them and play other players prisons.
I believe this would shed some new life to the game.

Also there is a bug where you get stuck locked on to a target and there's no way of avoiding it you just get magnified towards that target and it can really screw you over sometimes.

But really I just want an editor/creator

EDIT: I found a way to get out of Alcatraz in one day within the first 3 hours of the in game time (which is very short for those who don't know) so that prison could use a rework

Good work mates!

Very well done game. Good mechanics, perfect difficulty curve, definitely a good game. Would recommend to those who just bought the game, make you sure you get that intelligence up early game if you want to craft the better items later in the same prison. Speaking of crafting, I love how you have to figure out recipes for yourself. Of course, there's probably a wiki, but in game considering if there was no wiki at all, really makes you think about how something can be made into something else. In the end, as I said before, great game!
