Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, which now includes another prison in the latest update;
Paris Central Pen!
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.
Become an Escapist now!
- Adds new prison to escape from, "Paris Central Pen".

Amazing Game - Except for Some Bugs!
I love the Escapists and was debating whether to get it on PC or not, but then this came out and I knew I had to get it! For $4, I could see what the game was all about and have a better opinion on trying the DLC in the PC version (which I hope you add as in-app purchases later!). It was great, my brother and I both were playing it. Except, we were experiencing some launch bugs, which is to be expected. I encountered some text issues with the description of X item in the payphone. Also, sometimes the opening-desk sound kept looping for no apparent reason. My brother's game wouldn't let him escape other prisoners trying to beat him up while loading a save. He was just frozen in place while the black box around the screen faded away and the prisoners had time to come at him and kill him. He died every time he tried loading and was forced to stay in solitary without his items. But these bugs are minor, and I know you can fix them. Anyone that wants to get this game should definitely buy it, it is worth the money! Can't wait to see how it progresses in the future!
Great game except it’s really hard and frustrating(but I think that’s the point). Also make stuff easier to get because I’m trying to get a metal plate but only one person has it out of like 18 people and you have to buy it and he doesn’t like me so he won’t sell it to me. Which leads me to another problem. If you knock someone out and you check their pockets it’s annoying that you don’t get what they were selling because in real life that would happen(but again I think it would be too easy to get items if that happened).also it’s annoying that if you’re trying to fight someone but you hit someone else like a cop. When someone hits you and then you automatically hit them back and then a guard sees you hit someone else but not them hit you it’s annoying because they chase after you so that’s another problem. Also other NPC’s should be able to be sent to the doctor and to solitary confinement because some people actually have contraband items on them/in their desk. Everything else is amazing and perfect.
When I first bought this game I played it for 10 hours straight. It has role playing elements with strategy and character affinity with item crafting... its a really fun game. The only complaint I have is crafting is supposed to be trial and error. I think this can be extremely frustrating, because you may craft something you think you need. or spend a few virtual days trying to save up for certain items when it turns out they were the wrong items or you didn’t need them. They also make you pay (virtual in-game currency) for “tips” which basically are crafting recipes. Look up the crafting recipes online and keep it by your side while you play, is in my opinion the way to keep the game engaging and not frustrating. I’ve played quite a few mobile games, and this is a gem. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes games to be challenging and engaging while still being a lot of fun. I don’t recommend it to casuals, lol. you may get a little flustered if you’re just used to candy crush ;)
