We sentence you to... escape!

The Escapists provides the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into everyday prison life.

As is the case with all inmates, the main objective is escape! While under the careful watch of the guards, go about your daily duties clandestinely secreting useful objects from under your captors’ noses. Learn how to craft seemingly innocuous items into useful tools and use them to execute cunning diversionary tactics.

Understand when to keep in line, apply your time sensibly as you develop your own personal plans of escape. Learn prison’s daily routines, spot opportunities, work out potential routes and even misdirecting guards soon become second nature.

Whilst remembering to attend roll-call, holding down your job and keeping your fellow inmates on side, you can also also benefit from advancing your character’s statistics through various means including boosting their intellect and exercising regularly. Balance mundane routine with careful planning to attain your ultimate goal – escape and freedom!

Features 6 unique prisons to escape, 6 different methods to bust your way out, 10 prison jobs to earn you some vital escape funds, a crafting system to gather the necessary items for your escape such as shovels, cutters, ropes and weapons like the sock mace, the comb blade or cup of molten chocolate, around 200 items to find including 50+ craftable items.

Reviews From google play store

This is an amazing app and I have played it for about a year. The only thing I have noticed is that sometimes it glitches. One time 2 guards froze and I needed ones key but they were frozen. Only them. Other than that all I have noticed is that in jingle cells the metalshop job is glitched. I couldn't do the job because I couldn't reach the pressing machine no matter what I tried. Otherwise it's a great game. I totally recommend it.

okay. the game's really fun, solid controls, art style, but it has this one major issue. its really buggy. im not saying that its got some things that break sometimes, i mean real game breaking stuff. i started a lockdown then a takeover, and i officers kept coming into my cell and i had no control. so i take a keys off of them to get the hell out (as someone does) and it told me they traced a missing key. you got yeah. i was about to escape, now i have to load a save. please fix this! please!!!

Because it is really fun and hard to get out of the last level and it's so fun I can't stop playing because this game is awesome and you should get it too . But you might not be able to get in first try because I had to get it 5 times now

it's amazing and really fun, my only problem is I'm bad at the game and I can never get pass shankton (3rd map I think) but I still love the game, I like to just wait for a long time perfecting different strategies, but I often get quite frustrated and end up uninstalling, but that just means I get to redo to progress and try new routes. currently looking at the tunneling one, that was my plan for shankton last timeanyway... anyway, it's great, I love it, you should get it to person reading this!

One of the most fun mobile games out there. Is there a way that you could incorporate 1 level from the Escapists 2 into this? I don't feel like spending more money, but I've seen people play the Escapists 2 and it looks awesome, and I definitely would have bought the second one instead of this but I got this before the second one was out, and the second one is like this one but (somehow) better!

So the game is really good its one of those games where i delete then redownload again and again but now when i re downloaded it again it wont let me play i gave it 3 stars because when the game worked it was really really fun but right now i join the game and its a black screen playing the intro music ive been deleting and downloading this a few times now but it still wont work im on android so idk if theres been an update with android but i really want to play so if anyone could help me

I think it is awesome because 1 easy controls 2 I can escape ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD so if you want to but this for a cheap price then do... It is worth it then getting it on Xbox for $20 ( I don't know if this is a glitch or something I'm no hacker but when I played it I got all of the DLC that you should normally buy on Xbox for FREE) it's a nice and easy game ;) and I'm looking forward to playing the escapists 2 when I get the money even though it is cheap and I am hoping to give it a 5 star

Im on a Google Pixel 2, and everytime i try to open the game, the screen stays black and then exits the app. Please fix this, as i know the escapists to be a great game from playing on pc. One star until fixed, thanks.

The game is brilliant however when went to reinstall the game it popped up the payment option and I already payed for the game. In addition the purchased icon still shows on the Google play store and I would like to know why?

This game is awesome and very creative! i love the different ways to break out of prison but there is only one problem... where ate the female characters? All of the characters in the game are male and i just think there should be girls too. Thanks for taking the time to read this review I hope that very soon females can be in the game! Bye

i say the game is pretty good and stuff but the only problem is when you get to the final prison in the story mode when im about to leave the prison my game crashes also i got very bored is there any way i could get a refund? ill give it an slimy solid 3 stars

I am going to mention a problem here, my pickaxe won't chip through anything for some reason, just does nothing when I try. But despite this, this game gets 3 stars for being a proper game on mobile, none of that horrid microtransaction gameplay going on which is refreshing and in my opinion, worth the money.

Doesn't work. Pixel 3. Click to open app, it goes black and then goes back to phone's home screen.

I can't even play because, it keeps doing a black screen when I start the game up and only music plays. Please fix it. 😡


It's a good game some problems here and there and the controls take some time to get used to but the biggest problem is the guards even when you show up to roll call and stay there they keep telling me to get to where I need to be and builds up heat till I get knocked out for no reason

After owning this game for 2 years now it finally crashed a few days ago and I got a black screen every time I tried to get on. I even tried tweeting the game completely it still didn't work I still got the same BLACK SCREEN THAT I GOT FOR THE PAST TWO DAYS SO PLEASE FIX THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Best game ever totally worth your money , you can have all the DLC`s if you buy the game this includes Duct tapes are forever,Santas sweatshop, and Escape team. Plus it is a challenge to master all the prisons including the DLC`s. And have fun trying to be a master Escapist.

Ok 1. You should add a level to the game like if you get and item you get exp. and if you knocked a prisoner out and also If you knocked a guard out and you get stronger and faster and you have defense 2. hmmmmmmm more getaways like cars. but ya the game is nice keep it up guys

It is a very good game but the Baseball bat Crafting recepie doesnt work. everywhere (internet/Steam) is written that the crafting recepie is Timber+Roll of Duct Tape but it doesnt work. I would appriechieate if that can be fixed. Thank you.

gotten worse on lag. lags every time the other inmates move and when the guards tell you off. hate it! was loving it until the jingle cells update was added unless this is fixed i will NEVER install this game again!

A very cool, detailed and creative game. One of the few really good mobile games.

The screen is no longer black, and this game is ADDICTIVE, gameplay is great controls like butter, and overall awesome game, thanks team17, keep it up

it's ok but very buggy and on the first few times i loaded it up I couldn't get into the game

It is a fun game. Doing my best to open the main gates during lock downs to get past my friend Logan's progress. But in places where we are in one big group it begins to lag. Can u fix that problem?

So on the rare chance i was able to get into the app because of a glitch where the screen goes black at the starting menu, the lag was crashing the games every 5 minutes. Please fix this.

I've seen YouTubers play this game and I really was interested in playing this game but the controls were kinda wonky. An also the game kinda lagged all the time when all the characters meet up in one place and start moving

okay so very good game, one of my favorites though I did discover a problem, this doesn't effect game play but it does effect graphics, when you fully cut a fence it doesn't disappear it just turns a different direction.

Love this game but whenever I try to open it now it crashes on Google pixel 2. How do I fix it

It was a good game, but i forgot j had it for a while, and a I would really like a refund,but I do realize that I have been really late in making the desicion

I loved it. If you want to try it out for yourself you can buy it! You should hurry it's only on sale for a little longer!

The expericence is wonderful just like any other version of escapists but when you try to dig out and cover the hole with your desk if you stand next to it guards can detect the hole

Great game, love it, great replay value. My only problem is an awful bug. If you are at roll call when you should be, you shouldn't get in trouble. When guards walk past however, they raise my heat as if I am wandering around. This has gotten me up to 80 guard heat from 0 and is hurtful to some escapes. Please fix. Thanks!

this game is absolutely awsome but i have found a game bereaking glitch in the first prison all of the ai just stop and stay in place they dont move even the cops dont move its really gamebreaking please tell me when you fix also the day progess es normally but all the ai's dont move

Uninstall, reinstall. No matter what I do, I always get a black screen. I can hear the ingame volume, but that's it.

Really cool game. I wanted to get it on pc but then I saw it was on sale here so I got it. The controls are nice but I sometimes auto attack back. This can be problematic when you attack an inmate and the knock out 4 guards triggering a lock down. I would like an arrow key movement setting but otherwise it's a great game.

Nice and unique game concept, gameplay is simple too. Lotsa way to escape, lots of item to craft to help the character escape. I hope you enable player to gang up on guards with other inmate like I see in other version soon. (I saw it on youtube). Also a sorting system for craftable item recipe and a reliable saving system (not only auto-save) would be helpful.

It's awesome but I want the custom prison editor on the mobile version though. and it lags a few times.

i saw this game in my spare time and found it interesting but everytime i try to download it. An error occurs I've tried everything. Turning my phone off and on, clearing my cache checking my wifi... nothing works please help!

Finally beat the game and I love it. i love this game and it brings a lot of potential for other titles like this. it may need to chill with solitary a little but overall this game was the best paid game ever. I really think it's worth the money. The computer version, (the escapists 2) is better but for an android game this is top notch. the amount of stuff you can do makes this game 90% better. I loved to cause havoc in the cafeteria. I feel this game has the skill to be on a console!!!

Was really looking forward to this but the controls are really sloppy paired with the rest of the world working really fast. Everybody runs everywhere, super annoying to catch up to people just to know their name to see if you somehow lucked out by finding the person you are looking for. You have no idea where everything is, aside from when the green arrow tells you. No percievable way to map things out, where people are and where to start with your escape. Sadly confusing and boring.

i would give this game a 5 star, the game the game is addictive just like the pc version. but its extremely laggy and sometimes crashes. i was playing the game normally and it suddenly crashed and when i try to open the game and play it all i see is a black screen. please acknowledge this, i can't play the game and its really enjoyable.

Since the new update it was all good up until the jungle prison, everytime its a roll-call, even though im literally face to face with the guards i still get heat even though im present in the roll-call. Also another bug is that I sometimes i get tp'ed back, I think its a desync or something. Please double check your game everytime there's an update. Thank you.

Very fun, good controls overall a good game (ps if your game has turned black and plays music make sure your time and date is correct)

A fun game that is soulfuly based on stratigy there are never less some glitches but the pros out weigh the cons

It was a pretty good game. It's not the game's fault that I couldn't figure out how to get in the vents!

This game is awesome! I was in jail for child pornography, attempted murder, and murderous count of abusing my wife but then I remembered what I learned in Escapists! I started trading and crafting tools until I was ready to escape! I climbed into my fake vent onto the roof and got down with rope. I used my knowledge to know that the prison had electric fence and dug under. A guard must have saw me because I remember attacking a guard with my sock mace. I escaped unharmed and would do it again!!!

it's a great game but when you're in the police uniform and you're in someone's cell (or by there cell )the police say get out and stuff like that but on the other hand it's a great game

The game is very enjoyable and it's hard to get bored while playing it but there's a few reasons why I think it could be better. 1 there is still no multi tool which Is weird because you added it in to the PC version so please could you add it for mobile. 2 the cutlery goes down in two hits while on the PC the cutlery takes more hits to break. besides the game is really good so keep it up ;)

i only rate it 3 stars since the game now just shows a black screen. i would rate it 5 stars if i could play it again so i gope this issue gets fixed. btw this issue doesn't happen to other games and/or apps of mine

love the game!!!!!!! So much fun. I would recamend it to you! there are no gliches,and its amazing how exiting some part in levels can get.

I really like this game... the simplicity, problem solving, and crafting is really fun & a great time killer, overall its well worth paying for,. There are a few very frustrating bugs that could be fixed like the ability to disable speech bubbles & make it so inmates have habbits like hanging out small groups or sleeping instead of running around during free-time like headless chickens, this would reduce lag, and make it more realistic. I would suggest a way to hide the inventory bar as it limits screen space especailly when using touch mode to walk down I would also perfer that items (such as keys) must be "selected" to use them as to not use them unintentially, this can be an issue if holding the green key when going to work or if you bobble at a locked door often it takes several uses from the key.

I love this game to death, and I'm glad I tried the sequel on the Switch! Can't wait until I can get The Escapists: Complete Edition on the console! Also, have you planned on making all of the other dlcs available on the Switch version of TE2? That would be awesome! EDIT: i got the digital special edition on xbox one, but i checked and the missing DLCs are on the switch now!😀

Fun game. Somtimes when you pick up a cop body the game crashes. My game crashes every time I go to breakfast. That's ok though

Awesome game, really. I mean aside from not telling you absolutely anything about the mechanics of the game may be frustrating but challenges are fun, why else are we playing a video game? But the unnecessary guard heat at roll call is literally ridiculous. I'm not screwing up, I'm not doing anything wrong, the game itself is messed up and it takes ALL the fun out of a game when you are being punished for things that AREN'T YOUR OWN ERROR. Fix this and I'll up my rating to five stars.

This is almost the best game ever! 12 prisons and achievements. If you added a prison editor it, then I will rate it 5 🌟 Just please add a prison editor, just PLEASE!!!! 😁 Also a lot of people say that the Alcatraz game mode is hard but I can escape it in day 1 with only forks. The game is too easy realy

There seems to be a bug in the new update. Guards can sometimes give you heat for being late for roll call even when you are there. Example: Roll Call alarm. I go to roll call. The guards standing at roll call don't give me heat. A wandering guard walks by, he says "Hurry up $name" (according to the code, assuming that this is just the PC version with mobile control scheme) I receive 6 heat for being 'late,' but I'm standing with the other inmates. I just experienced this is Santa's Sweatshop, but this bug might just be the code , and not the prison.

I think this is really fun and challenging. I easily rated 5 stars. However, one complaint that I have is that on this console version, you can't craft the multi-tool or the powered screwdriver. If you could make it so we could craft those items on this console version, I'd be ever so grateful!

Has some great ideas but frustrating execution. Most of the game mechanics aren't explained. Lost about an hour of progress because of it when a prisoner hit me and stole 2 keys that I had spent an hour obtaining. The game auto saved immediately. These little frustrations are commonplace. The juice wasn't worth the squeeze at that point.

A waste of money, the controls are hard and there's even a bug where I've escaped and then it froze for no reason. Fix this bug or give me a refund if you can.

Overall a fun game but has some bugs and the controls arent the best as they can sometimes drift

great game i love that you can use a controler no lag but i did find a glitch where on santas sweatshop when i click a item (im using a controler ) it pick up the one next to it but it will let me drag it using touch controls

Hi! I really enjoy the game a ton. But I have a big issue, several bugs. Big issue ones (fixed with reload) - Unlockable hints not beeing able to purchase even though I have more than enough money required - Everysingle character but myself stuck, not beeing able to move at all - Permanently framedrops to 1, skips ~3secs But the worst one, constantly happening: - Heat raises when guards see you even when I participate the daily routine. Unfortunately unplayable at jungle prison.. ( Thx for fix )

Really fun! I love knocking out the gaurds!

Controls are abit awkward, many times punched some npc rather then spoke to. Game play seemed redundant, I'd have some grand escape plan during implement it found it quicker to give all the guards the rock in sock connection a few times and walk out the front gate. Fair few items seem to just exist rather than being useful

I Opened the game and the screen was black.It just played music and I spent a special 7.50 on it. I am bummed

It's great and allot like the actual game but when you exit, it deleted all off your progress through the game. You guys should really work on fixing that. If that gets out of the way though i think i might get back into playing it. Good job though guys.

I liked the game but when I try to redownload it it just says Installing, and it's been this way for a while, it wont let me cancel the installation either.

this game is good its fun and it has alout of exitment and thrill in it i am play this on a tablet so my controlls are on the screen they car be little difficult at first but i got used to it and for me their is a police officers face at the top of the screen and if it gose to 100% their is another button on the left side of the screen it has a offers face but it has red eyes it is so frekey this game i think shold be 10 + it is so hard to escape and its a little pricey

This is a great game, love it just wish i tried the newer version frist than this one. But overall great game

Honestly the greatest game I have ever played! Just one suggestion I can add, it would be cool to be a guard or Warden in the prison so you could get a perspective of what its like to be a guard/warden. Would also be great if there was a multiplayer mode for the game.

unplayable this game barley works on me the screen doesnt load and im always stuck on it and i cant even play i want a refund

i can't even get out cause the controls are terrible and they always notice me trying to escape even when there not there so i want my money back this game is a waste.

I really do love the game, as i have played it on my PC, but everytime I walk anywhere I have Major Lag Issues. I love the game and its concept, and I dont see other reviewers having the same problem, so maybe it is just my phone?

Crashes on Pixel 3a with Android 10. Will update review once the game actually works

continouosly goes to a black screen when opened. will not show game. Please fix the problem.

im sad because its a good game but it wont load for me. i go into the game and it just stays on a black screen, i waited an hour and it wouldnt show the main screen. i reloaded the game, restarted everything and it wont work. im angry that i wasted money on something that wont load, and it is a good game.

so much lag it's stupid. sometimes the game only loads black screen. and other various bugs. the PC version is far better.

Really good but I wish you could be cop like really🤔😐😁. and the controls are so good and just the gameplay

I have played the game before, I know it's good. BUT THE SCREEN WILL NOT CHANGE FROM BLACK. the unity logo and all turns up, And it just goes black. music players, black. Three minutes later, black.

Good game and good maps but add more weapons plz plz and better hints I keep getting these same sometimes in different prisons plz plzplz

too easy to get trapped in an infinite fail loop so if you add the ability to go back to a previous save instead of being stuck to one save then I will change my rating until then I'm not going to improve my rating and I won't reinstall so if you fix this then my rating will improve

Where's the crafting list, there should be one, at least it will make it easier to craft stuff and collect things that we want, and also if you can, please add multiplayer, or just add The Escapist 2.

Its really good but there is no cafting menu list to know what i can build with some materials

I really do like the game alot. I have it on my computer aswell and it runs great! Unfortunately it lags out of control on my device and I am unable to play it. I would like a refund as the game is unplayable

This game is surprisingly good on mobile. The controls are great and so is the gameplay. The only problem is that occasionally the frames will drop, but it's only noticable for about a second.

Despite the controls being a bit laggy, it is a great game.

Can we have multiplayer? Plus when you finish the game, if you don't have it, you could let people make custom bases and choose police or prisoner. It would be much funner! Maybe even get more people onto The Escapest 2 and the Escapest. Just some ideas you should add.

i cant play without having to get back to my last save and its right before rolecall so its a lock down every time. i want to refund

Here is why I rated a one star I have been wanting this game for 2 years today I finally got it and when I go to play the game all it is a black screen I am very mad because I just payed eight dollars for a game that I can't even play please fix this

Well first things first I like the game but its to laggy and it crashes all the time I dont want to sound like a jerk but your game on a scale of 1 to 10 is about a 5 so please do your best to fix it.

I love this game it's the best prison escape game I know hope y'all make more maps thank u for making it can y'all make this game free plz thx nobody will regret paying for this Don't believe what other people say about how the is bad It's the best :)

its a good game but devs, could you fix a glich i found. in all the roll calls of the 3rd prison, all the time(im in front of the guards) and theres another guard saying hurry up..... i dont think i ecplained myself very clearly so ask anything u need bye

amazing but laggy sometimes when near a lot of prisoners and guards.

Mobile Version: While the game itself is fun and engaging, the controls are an absolute nightmare and almost completely ruin the experience. I wouldn't recommend buying the mobile version.

I think this game is great! But the lag makes this game pretty much unplayable... I don't know if it's just my tablet, or the game itself, but is there advice on how I could fix it???

It's amazing. It's great to figure out how to pass the rounds and when you do pass the round you have like an amazing sigh of relief. Get this game AMRDENTLY!

worked at first started to crash when launched would like refund if possible but apart from that loved the game

the guards dont recognize that i am in roll call sp ill go from 0 to 99 in lile a few seconds. i have to run around in circles in order to get them to register that i am there. other than that causing me to lose everything 3 times a game day the game is perfect

I can't escape the final prison because I can't create the raft body. The mobile version needs to be updated so it's more complete. It's also less challenging than I thought it'd be
