Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, which now includes another prison in the latest update; London Tower!

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, Escape team included in the latest update. Locked in a military prison for crimes they did not commit, the 4 members of the Escape team must work out how to break free from an Escape proof military prison. Maybe the rumours that the compound houses the fiercest tank in history will help?

Become an Escapist now!

Suggestions and questions  lady madeline478  4 star

Firstly I want to say thank you to the creators of making the escapist I think that alternatively your game is on my top five! I love how you really have to think about different ways you have to make to get out of the prison. Although it is a Amazing game there are a few things I would like to suggest. 1. A choice to be a guard or a prisoner. This would give so much more fun into the game because me personally and most of my friends have always thought of becoming an actual guard. I know you can put on a guard outfit and steal the keys but it would be really cool if you are a legit guard that has to stop people from escaping the prison, take contraband items off people, make sure everybody is at roll call and many more. 2. A free create your own prison mode. I think if you were to add this in it would make much more people come and play your game because who doesn’t like creating their own prison. I also think with this mode you should be able to hire guards and arrest criminals and place them in your jail. I really think this would be a really fun thing to add in to the game and if you do I will make sure I tell loads about it. 3. More jobs. I think if there were to be more jobs it would have a lot more fun in it simply because some jobs aren’t really to much fun. If I were to choose more jobs they would probably be nurses, chefs, miner, graffiti cleaner and many more. Also I think we should get more time when completing our jobs because I’d be doing my job trying to complete my job when the time would run out and my job would be stripes from me. 4. Other prisons. Can you add in a new prison called the pentagon and it’s mostly toughened glass. Can it also be in a shape of a huge pentagon that would be really cool and I would really like it to be in the game. Please can you add this in. I hope you can add these add ons in and hopefully for free. The reason I am giving you fours stars is because of some things that are not in the game yet but that one star can be earned by hopefully adding in these small touches then I’ll write a review once more. Thank you for creating a FANTASTIC GAME!!!!!!

👍🏻  RaveReveiwer  5 star

Such a great game. So many ways to escape Prisons and so many to escape from. If there was one thing I would recommend, It would be to add in a ‘Create your own prison’ place once you’ve escaped the main Prisons. Then it would be a way to keep learning new escape ideas for some of the harder maps. (Escape team, Duct Tapes, HMP IronGate etc.)


Great game... but....  YoyoHoop  4 star

This is a great game considering its on ipad, but when you have been looking at the computer version for a while its annoying because.... Crafting There are many, many recipes that help you escape the prisons, but on the computer you can select the recipe for you to craft without knowing it off by heart. But on the ipad you either have to pause the game and look up the recipe or have it on paper beside you ready. Please add the Crafting Menu. Maps Some prisons are very big. Even though you have that 'magical' green arrow that leads you were your MEANT to be, but when you have to find a place thats off limits you need to ignore and skip periods. Please add the Map. Like I said, pleasssssssse can you add the Map and the Crafting Menu!!!!!!
