=BugTwin4u 55=

Good... but not good  =BugTwin4u 55=  4 star

So about the game I’ve been playing for a while, and I think its pretty good. It’s just that... I can’t play it anymore, as in when I get into the game, it just shows the title, and both happens, just the title. And if I wait for a while it crashes. And it will never let me play. Ever. So if your reading this do something, so I can give you developers a good review. So I hope your reading this and could do something about it.


Fun game, but crashes  Joobykaneshooby  5 star

I really liked this game, but it would freeze/crash every few minutes when playing most of the “extra” prisons. Still recommend it though!


Bug  neauxno  5 star

I have been playing this game sense I’ve got it and I’ve loved it, but there is a pretty bad bug that can lead to having you restart your day and losing all progress. When playing and you’re at a roll call, or most other places, if a guard who doesn’t follow the day with you sees you, he will tell you to get to where you’re supposed to be raising your heat by 5. If you have high heat or multiple guarded wall bug you, your heat and shoot up by 20 and you’ll have to fight or submit losing all progress. I love this game and hope the see this fixed. THANKS!

your trash gameboy

Bugs man  your trash gameboy  3 star

Fix some bugs it will go a long way but LOVE THIS GAME


Fun  Rotten2matoes  5 star

Fun but difficult but that’s probably the point

Big Peen Dean

Really good game, SUGGESTION!!  Big Peen Dean  5 star

This is a great game, but if you could sell items to the other prisoners that would be really cool (for money I mean). But I have a feeling that would make the game a LOT easier so it’s whatever. But I have wasted many a homework night on this game, so thanks for that!!


Great but with a significant issue  H24X  4 star

Although the game itself is an amazingly fun game of plotting and scheming your way out of what ever prison walls hold you back, there is a major issue with the AI of the guards. If you are where you are supposed to be, they will still tell you to go where you need to be. This can be especially problematic during role calls as it can raise your heat to dangerous levels through no fault of your own (it even got me killed once). I feel like this bug’s removal would easily make this a 5-star game.

Cat bluber

Great game and all.... But a few problems with other games  Cat bluber  5 star

This game is amazing. it is ingenious and challenges you I love the game it is great thou a few problems with other apps,I had Panarium and sheltered downloaded.when I uninstalled them to make space for an other game I tried to reinstall them and they weren't in the all games part on the AppStore. Please help it is quite annoying


Some bugs but AWESOME game!  Plututo  5 star

I completed this game on PC ages ago aswell as Fort Bamford and Camp Eplison. I stumbled across it again in the App Store and I saw that it was on a discount. So I decided to buy it. The graphics update was really good! I have just finished HMP Irongate right now on day 11. But one problem i have is for some reason at rollcall around 30 minutes in, the guards start yelling at me to get to where i should be, although I am there. So I have to move out of sight to any guard but I still have to be in close range so I can see who’s having the shakedown. Also I don’t like the fact that you can’t chip through boulders underground. San Pancho was a hard one to get through. I had to dodge boulders aswell as landmines. Other than that great game! I would also be happy if there was a Prison Editor like you added in the PC version. Awesome game! It really makes you think and it is definitely worth your while! I also love the characters and how you sort of made them have a “personality”, even though they have the same AI. When you first start out, you may be really confused. But if you watch some lets plays to get things going, then trust me, you’ll get the hang of it. The soundtrack is also legendary! Every single song fits so well with the period. Also I don’t know if this was intentional or not, but Alcatraz and HMP Irongate’s free period songs are switched around. Anyway, that’s my review. Scrolling up, I just realized how much I wrote about this amazing game! If you read this whole thing then have a good day! I’d definitely recommend it to you.

Luv it!  chicogem  5 star

I love the escapists so much! I rarely get off it and, all i do is craft, craft, craft! Keep it up!


It’s okay but not for small devices  MikuruKitsune  3 star

Could see the appeal and potential but I wouldn’t recommend this on a smart phone as the Game is too fast with how small the navigation is and with the limiting factor of the screen size.


Great Game!  Tanyalytical  5 star

One problem though, when I am out the courtyard in all maps during a roll call, guards call me out randomly, despite me doing nothing and being in the right area. It seems to happen when they walk up to my area, call me out, then they just casually do their thing again, and sometimes they get stuck in the door, causing them to call me out until roll call ends. Please fix it.


Don't waste your money  NotChosen4356  1 star

Crashes when I try to start a game. Total waste of my sons money, he is very disappointed.

But is still good

Loading  But is still good  3 star

The game always kicks me out before I get to play it please fix the problem. I hear it is a great game but I can't even try it.


New prison  Dan190xt  5 star

I think you should the holes prison it would be sooooo cool. The main character can be Stanley and Zero can help you escape.


Get fixed  cnn#1fan  1 star

Bro so I’m playing and the cops knock me out when I did nothing! Also some characters get away with things I don’t. Like Carl had metal and illegal items and when he walked through a sensor it didn’t go red but when I did It i got attacked! Fix your game you jack bass. Also I can’t even kill cops when I have strong weapons and my character is at 100 strength.!


Unfinished  Tmitch5279  1 star

I bought this to play on my iPhone XR and the game has locked up twice on me and the instruction bubbles get cut off so I can’t read them. Waste of $5.


Amazing  momernatep  5 star

I love it, but needs to be a little easier


I have a suggestion  dread51201  4 star

You should be able to ask prisoners if there your friend to kit a guard it’s really annoying if you want to beat something up you have to do it yourself


Just it’s hard  ChessMom  5 star

OK so no complaints anything but just that it’s really hard because other players have contraband items in their desks and stuff and in there. inventory and also it’s also hard because if someone has like a screwdriver something and you want to buy it but you don’t have enough and you make them unconscious but they don’t have the thing that they’re selling sorry things


Good except for roll call  thanosmeister  4 star

Even when I am standing where I’m supposed to, the guards still say “get going” and my heat goes up, I also wish that there would be more prisons, other than that it’s a great game

Awesomeness ness ness

Just like the official game  Awesomeness ness ness  5 star

Good like really good


Well a review  popytpopty  3 star

The first prison I tried many things first I tried the vents and well there was an indestructible wall then I dug through my cell all the way to the gate but it wouldn’t let me dig up to the top lastly I just knocked out all the guards and then rushed to the gate and left why is there only 1 way to escape for me? Isn’t there supposed to be a lot of ways?


Great game  Pheasantplucker1968  5 star
