The Escapists

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 from across the world, with new prison, Banned Camp included in the latest update. Enjoy the fresh air of the outdoors, the sound of the breeze rustling the trees and the beautiful vista of the idyllic lake. But don’t be fooled, as this camp has a pretty serious electric fence to stop you from wandering too far, and the guards here are real mean!

I have paid 4 dollars on a game that I love but it's hard to love a game when you can't play it's been 3 days now that every time I log in it crashes on me and takes me back to the home screen and thank you for reading


Great  TACOPOCYLYPSE  5 star

I have already escaped 2 normal prisons and one of the extra prisons. This game is so much fun and Ihighly recommend it to anyone.


1 problem  DoggoDiazA  5 star

When i try to fight someone and press on "B" it doesnt work and won't let me hit. I know it hits automatically when I'm combat but when i want to start a fight i can't sometimes


Love it + a few ideas  Willsteret  5 star

I LOVE this game. I've only beaten 2 levels and got stuck on the 3rd level. I wish it would tell you ALL the possible ways to escape ranging from easiest to hardest. Also I read that the inmates on the PC version will basically do what you say if you have there trust. Only other things I'd like is to make the inmates more intractable like have them craft/find thugs over like a days period and you pay them with cash or respect. Other than that love the game. Keep up the good work


Awesome gameplay  2darnlo  5 star

I so far escaped 3 prisons


A Few Suggestions...  Svjkdfnvjkna  5 star

Hi. I love this game and over my time playing I have noticed something and want to suggest some ideas... 1. Please make Alcatraz more difficult, I escaped in 1 day. Maybe, make it like you have to make a makeshift raft, or pay a guard to let you off the island. 2. Please add more prisons for example, a prison within a giant submarine, or even a castle prison! 3. I would also love to make my own prison or play multiplayer! I hope you guys at Team 17 take these ideas under consideration, I just want to make my favorite game even more fun for myself and other escapists.

I love this game.


This game is great! Except for one thing...  GuyOfMystery  4 star

When I invested my money in this game I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with the results. Many famous YouTubers have played this game and apparently loved it. I thought because of all of the positive reception from a lot of people that I should buy the game. I tried it out on the lowest possible difficulty, however, (Center Perks) and met with a large challenge. Now it has been 7 days since I bought the app (in real time) and I still have not escaped from Center Perks! This game is very fun, but also very hard and whenever I even try to escape through the vents at even 1 am, I am greeted by the letter that sends me to solitary confinement or dinner. Not being able to escape after an entire week of gameplay leaves me discouraged for week two of owning this app. Other than its difficulty, it's a great game with fun, pixelated graphics and I am sure that a lot of effort was put into this magnificent game!


Excellent Game  *Danny777*  4 star

This Game *lip-smack* Is good There are some things I'd like to change though First off, there guards are waaaaay to weak, you can easily knockout the guards and escape Second of all, the step ladders don't work :/ Third of all, THE BED DUMMY DOESN'T WORK HALF THE TIME! Its really annoying and I can't escape jungle compound without it

Loading screen  Coley Goalie  1 star

I've seen this game get played on YouTube, but yet when I download it on my phone, I get stuck on the loading screen, I would a either like a refund, or more importantly a fix to this problem! Thank you.


Great game just need to add more Prisons  ProBotGamming  4 star

I like the concept about escaping prison but you should make it so that user made levels can be created. And I think you should make it harder to escape from Alcatraz because I escaped at breakfast time and had the best score on mobile for a few days because all you need is 5 forks and go to where the small exit door is and break the wall and your out after you get to the dock


Plz add  Coolguy83857381  5 star

Insanely good  mysticeye35  5 star


Mr. Gamer1412

Awesome but needs something else  Mr. Gamer1412  4 star

I love this game it's awesome but it would be a lot cooler if you added in multiplayer or online servers so you could play with your friends. I'm not forcing you to do this but it would be so much better if you added this to the game. It would be a lot cooler.


Amazing  Boby177  5 star



Please  Velrowe  5 star

Bring the second one to Mobile please


Waste  JMBowser  1 star

B button won't work for fighting. Complete waste of $4. Expensive game for it to not work. Can't even fight first guard on first level. Waste.
