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. 

App ChangeLog

  • • Fixed an issue on London Tower with the electric fence.
  • • Fixed a crash on Escape Team when reaching evening free period.
  • • Fixed an issue where you would gain heat from guards for incorrect reasons.
  • • Minor bug fixes and optimisations

  1. PugsForLife-avatar



    This game's fun but there is a ridiculous amount of things that make me stop playing for weeks. For example, on the level I was doing, Santa's Sweatshop, it did a save in the middle of me getting in a fight so whenever I spawned it auto killed 2 or 3 guards causing a lockdown then the rest of the guards killed me while I was still loading and forced me into solitary making me restart all of my progress. If they added a way to stop auto hitting when being attacked then it's a 5 star.

  2. ZERT-avatar



    the escapists The game is great everything works fine for me however if there will be an update I will recommend adding an option for turning off auto punching. Also when the auto punching is on, you cant bait prisoners out which is kind of annoying. Please make the fights take longer to have that escapist rpg style . Also please fix the fact that you can't fix "sturdy..." tools. AND FIX DISAPPEARED ITEMS... some disappear if left for days

  3. Rock4Glory-avatar



    the escapists crafting I love this game to death but the second level of the campaign is glitched and there are glitches where you are in the cafeteria and all of a sudden the guard tell you to "move along" or whatever and you go from have 10 heat to like 60 heat points.

  4. Christian Vega-avatar

    wiki The thing that pissed me off was whenever I get a guard suit or one of there keys it makes me go to solitary and this game would be even more fun and easy to escape and to play. Most of all whenever i make a shovel they just send me straight away to solitary or last save can u guys get rid of that. It's soo annoying

  5. pbukaske-avatar



    multiplayer Amazing game! I totally recommend this to people who like strategy games. I have had no complaints about this game once or ever. My only thing is that I wish it had some features that the PC/Console version has, such as rioting.

  6. Location Unknown-avatar

    the escapists free I love this game, so many good memories with it, although the controls can be cumbersome at first it is still a first class game and I highly recommend buying it you enjoy escape/puzzle type games.

  7. Robert B-avatar

    review I'm late... As usual 😜 But I'm happy whatever time of the games life this is. The concept is brilliant. The challenges are just the right level of irritateing and you have multiple playthrough options. The game takes time and patience. But so is prison I assume.. Unless you pick up a walkthrough or cheat sheet. Crafting will be the biggest contender for pissing you off. Once you figure it out it's all down hill

    the escapists wiki Great game I haven't stopped playing it since I got it the only thing that I would suggest is a multiplayer mode.

  9. Mr Pentagon-avatar

    Mr Pentagon


    the escapists 3 Great and addictive but 2 things that are really annoying is how 1. When there's a lot of prisoners or guards moving (eg when they move from roll call to breakfast) the game lags a lot. 2. When you load back the game a prisoner you hate will beat you up and you cant do any thing since it takes a second for the game to load out so all your contraband is gone if you have any on you. Also there haven't been any prisons added in awhile when will the next prison be added?

    switch At this point the whole fixed bug where game would crash thing does not help me. I have been told by my mates that this game is fun, but the issue is that I will try to load it up, and it will not show tje game, but audio comes through. 2 stars for now, pending for more or less.

    Very fun game I was doing well then my character started auto attacking I went to solitary and tried to load last save but it immediately sent me back

    I love it but i gave it a 4 star cause i dont know if its my phone or not but it keeps kicking me out when i log in but if i didnt keep getting logged out it would be a 5 star

  13. Slime Yt-avatar

    Slime Yt


    I love this game!! And I made a funny thing where is it said that his own brother landed his self on the beat down list it made me laughter so hard. But escaping also Is pretty hard, so it takes me forever because I keep on getting into fights then having to making them ok with me again so they will sell me good stuff to escape with and once I had a glitch where one of them traded me a key and i freaked out! So like I said really good game for people that like puzzle games.

  14. HpPlays-avatar



    Super super nice game but we need more levels plss Best sandbox game ever. It is really good u should defenatly try it. Plsss add more levels plsss

    Won't start, no matter what I do it will not work. The screen just stays black. I've restarted my phone, and even re-installed the app. Don't download this game, it's a waste of your money.

  20. Meg-avatar



    There's a weird thing on the sides of the screen where you can see the edge of the left screen on the right and vice versa. But other than that, wonderful!!

  21. Javier Fraire-avatar

    missing some important elements from pc, inmate stashes, multitool, power drill. optimization should comd first though, as this last update slowed fhe franerate a lot, reducing graphics should solve ghe problem, as this game ran so smoothly before the last update.

    My game broke. I beat all the prisons and was starting on the dlcs and can't play anymore. if I can explain, when I got on the app I could hear the music but I could only see a black screen. when I minimized I could see the siren like I unlocked a new prison but when I minimized more I could see the hud like play and extras and a bunch of other random stuff on the screen. when i clicked on something i heard the sound like I clicked on something but nothing happened. I'm hoping that you can help

  25. MrCrazyDerp-avatar



    I bought the game and was unable to play it. It lagged and crashed and overall kicked me from the game. However, I have not refunded for when I no longer have this phone and can play it. The phone I have is a Nokia 2 so probably my fault I can't play.

    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.

    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!!!

    game has became very glitchy over time and is very hard to even interact with while your77 co-inmate run around too fast to even stop to talk the buttons dont connect half the time u press them on the analog setting and your touch settings with movement are horrible this needs to be updated and revamped because this isnt playable and i spent money to play this game ive updated it, un-instaleld, it re-installed, it deleted entirely data save to checking for corruption and nothin so its just old

  32. Rilley Darko-avatar

    Rilley Darko


    The game recently only crashes and won't open. Hoping for an update or fix soon or I'm going to end up requesting a refund. Sucks because the game itself is great, no complaints about the game itself, but the last several times I've tried to open it, it immediately crashes. No update available on it either with a fix as of today. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sucks. It's a good game.

  33. Patrick Jr Smith-avatar

    Patrick Jr Smith


    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!

    teh gaming dude


    it's amazing and really fun, my only problem is I'm not good at it 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!

  35. Hailey Weber-avatar

    Hailey Weber


    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.

  36. Mark Kazakov-avatar

    Mark Kazakov


    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.

  37. Galaxy Zone-avatar

    Galaxy Zone


    This game is absolutely great. I have a few fixes and I know there is an escapist 2 but I just wanna say that I think you should make the workout buttons bigger, and that there is a glitch when you are too fatigued to read. It doesn't let you interact with anything until you have enough energy to read and when you do by going to the shower or restarting the game the first thing you interact with no matter what it is you will read. Pls fix and other than that this game is great and I highly recom

  38. Tyler Jones-avatar

    Have been playing this game for years on Steam, but can't really play it on my phone as playing games on a phone is super unnatural to me. Regardless of that, it's a great game and I'd recommend it.

  39. Edwin Siantar-avatar

    Edwin Siantar


    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.

    I love this game it was worth the money except when you get roll called it will do it over and over if you have contraband then I'm stuck in a loop or to solitary so plz fix this

  41. A Google user-avatar

    A Google user


    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 ;)

  42. Kono Pepe Da-avatar

    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.

  43. Robert David-avatar

    Robert David


    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.

  44. PixelGamer1233-avatar



    One of the best mobile versions of a game like this! I love this game but I think I would be better if they added a button to change the layout for buttons

  45. A Great Escapist-avatar

    A Great Escapist


    Nostalgic, takes me back to PC. The upgraded graphics don't disappoint even in comparison to the more modern TE2's graphics. I love digging out under the nasty San Pancho, trying to sail away in HMP Irongate or just beating the bejeezus out of the guards and completing a riot. If any updates do ever come, I would say that we don't have a Recruit button right now... So to make these riots easier, could you ever add that? 10/10 port that stays true to the original.

  46. IronNatePup-avatar



    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.

  47. winrin-avatar



    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!

  48. Jake Bumgarner-avatar

    Jake Bumgarner


    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.

  49. LerXgamer-avatar



    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

  50. A Google user-avatar

    A Google user


    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!

    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 )

  52. Jacob-avatar



    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

    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.

    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!!!

  57. Redder-avatar



    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.

    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.

    The gameplay is pretty fun and includes quality of life improvements the original PC version needed. However, the game's controls are difficult to come by, and longer you play, the more you'll come to realize that it's riddled with annoying, inconvenient bugs.

    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.

    I absolutely Love this game. Before, it was free but I can kinda see why they put a price on it. One thing I do recommend is that they add a recipe book for crafting. I think they used to have that or I can't find it because it's been a while since I last played the game and that was when it was free. Other than that, It is very Interesting and addicting. I love how I can't escape because I love a challenge like that.

    There is a bug that always occurs. You're at the place you need to be but the gaurds raise yout heat. Also, sometimes when you have a cleaning job, it gives you heat even though you've completed the job. Otherwise, great game.

  74. Goldleader-avatar



    Wouldn't load no matter what I did. I deleted the game and re downloaded it, I deleted other games and nothing happend. I would like if you fixed the problem, but if you cant I would like a refund. It was a great game but it just would load and only crashes. I have a Samsung s9 if that will help you with the problem.

    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.

    The game just wont start. I've had the game for a while now and it hasn't opened once. I would now like to apply for a refund. I am aware that the time is up but I thought it would be fixed in a future patch or my phone was just being wonky for a while, this doesn't appear to be the case so I would really like a refund. I bought this game on sale for £1.79

    The app just crashes on my phone while it used to work previously. I can't even play the game or finish the levels and I feel like my money is wasted as this problem doesn't seem to be a possiblity of getting fixed. Would probably ask for a refund but don't think that would happen

  78. ReuyJ-avatar



    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

    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

    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 would rate 5 stars if the controls are fixed the loystick needs to follow where i press and the controls are sluggish and needs optimizations

    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.

    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

    Game is kinda boring I tried refunding and they didn't want to, would not reccomend spending $6 on it not worth especially if you want to refund it they will just make excuses and not do it

  85. Gamerlol5 :D-avatar

    Gamerlol5 :D


    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.

    Wont even load. I refunded and got my money back once. Then tried buying again and have the same problem except this time it wont refund me the money back. It wont even open at all it just immediately forces close. I was looking forward to playing this game and was very disappointed.

    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?

  88. Adam Thedum-avatar

    Adam Thedum


    The game is hard to understand without any outside help from the internet. The tutorial doesnt explain that guards have keys all it does is show ways of exiting the prison. This way beginners (such as myself) will waste lots of time trying to understand what to do. Some tools are not explained with information of what they do which causes confusion and the player to not be satisfied with the game and in game actions. Game has holy potential its a shame this happened and I wish for a change.

  89. Wicked-avatar



    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

    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.

    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.

    I loved this game on my old tablet but now when I try to open the game, it keeps crashing consistently. I've tried everything I could but nothing worked. Even refunding and buying the game again didn't work and now it won't even give me the option to refund anymore. I payed 6 dollars for this game and it won't even let me play or even get my money back. I want a refund!

  95. Mvo-avatar



    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.

  96. Mr.Bongos-avatar



    I love this so much and I would say this might be better than the escapists 2. I highly recommend buying this because for $6.50 or less if it's on sale, you can get countless hours of gameplay and I already have.

  97. Reinier _-avatar

    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

    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!😀

    The game itself is amazing but it does not seem to work on my phone anymore and I have read lots of other reviews saying the same thing. Ive already tried to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. Be aware that if you do purchase this game its likely not to work at this time.

    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!!!

  101. Berrybombs-avatar



    It's an amazing game my only complaint is if you try to load say into role call but the last time it saved was when you were in a fight so you continuously get beat up which is annoying if you have contraband on you

  102. Grim82114-avatar



    I literally cant even open the app it just says "app stopped working" please figure out the issue. I have cleared my cache, as well as restarting my phone, and sent multiple emails telling the team this. I have not gotten a reply and I'm honestly really disappointed.

    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

    The game is great, but every role call I get told out like i wasn't there. please fix this, because I currently can only fix this problem by hiding in my cell or elsewhere after poping up at role call.

    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.

  110. Rayraro-avatar



    The Escapists is a strategic game where the aim is to escape from a prison establishment in the middle of nowhere . I started playing a few weeks ago and I was actually having a lot of fun .However, when I finally got to the Jungle prison (4th prison) . I had been caught digging and whenever I pressed load last save it would send me to my cell and as soon as I left my cell I would be arrested for digging again . this happened over and over again and the only way to get out was to go to solitary.

    This game is awesome i love this game because i love a challenge.Iwould really recommend you to buy this the gameplay.The controls are not even that hard to controls and the graphics aren't really that bad.Although i would like if they added a crafting recipe.

  112. ZakMilz-avatar



    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.

    Tutorial was fine but not sure how you can make a small indie game this poorly optimized. Much bigger games run smoother, no discredit to the devs I'm sure the game is great. If I could play for more then a moment without stutters.

  115. Sydney-avatar



    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

    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

    Cannot get past the loading screen, but I guess that's what you get for a 2 dollar game. However, if you still want this game, go with part two. The download works for part two, same price.
