The Escapists

The Escapists application logo

Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, which now includes another prison in the latest update;
Paris Central Pen!

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.

Make a mod were teddy bears can be crafted with clothes by having 0 or more intelligence. If you give them to people, you will be liked more. Crafting it will give you more intelligence. Cop bears are not illegal to the cops or the detectors. Items: teddy bear- inmate outfit or cop outfit.

Please, just do this one thing for me.  PLS READ DEM WORDS  4 star

Im ABSOLUTELY obsessed with this game. I have been read on one of my comments before (At least I think that was me), and the developers fixed a glitch for me. But this is different, so just hear me out. I want a prison maker for ios. I always wanted to be able to make my prison on the go. Hopefully I can see this soon, and thank you!


Old names and Jeeps  LittleJC74  5 star

please add the POW outfit back to stalag, jungle, and pancho Also add a Jeep to jungle compound. I’m in HMP and it’s kinda easy cuz guards don’t have stun rods, please add those back! Also add original names like elf outfit and not inmate outfit for every single one! Thanks and good game!

Fun but sad  zanebrain5508  4 star

It's a really fun game but when I log in it kicks me out and it's a great game just fix more bugs like it kicking peaple out


Build your prison feature needed  24bobobobobo  4 star

This is a good game by team ten but they still need to come out with the build your own prison feature and I think the game will blow up so from me till then, it’s 4 stars


Suggestion  sfghsg  5 star

I really want the ‘Create your own Prison’ thing but I don’t have a computer to do it on. I hope that you’ll add it into IOS. It doesn’t have to have all of the features on PC, but it would still be really fun! By the way, THIS GAME IS AWESOME!



Buuut......I would REALLY love it if you could add a multiplayer mode even if its local multiplayer I would really enjoy! Plus if you do add this (plz) could we be able to make private severs or something. PLZZZZZZZ ADD!!


Best game EVER  derpy09  5 star

I love this game so much but please make more prisons or weapons or tools or JUST SOMETHING!!!!

Names I pick r used

A new update  Names I pick r used  4 star

I have a very good idea to make this game better I was thinking they could ad custom prison making where you can play prisons other people made a play your own I think this will be a great idea for this kind of game just a thought

It's a basket ball game

Review  It's a basket ball game  4 star

Worth 7.99, but would be better if HMP Irongate was as hard as on pc, and if you could invite prisoners to a takeover. Other than that it’s really good, but PLEASE fix guard outfits, they don’t seem to work??? Thanks for releasing to mobile


They Just Keep On Coming  RON_AKI  5 star

I have had this game for several years now and every time I get an update for the app it either gives me bug fixes or a new DLC level. The actual aim of the game is to become the ultimate escapist by completing all the levels. Overall, I think this a top notch game and that I’m hoping that The Escapists Two gets released on IOS. Thanks


Two questions  tonystarn  5 star

The game is great but I have two questions could you make a vending machine that gives chocolate because it very hard to come by and the idea for a “Death knife” is pretty good and maybe you could make it with a pocket knife a cup of molten chocolate and knuckle dusters even if the “Death knife would be over powered it would be made with weapons that are good and rare other than that the game is great!


Only $7.99  Nicgeo  5 star

This is the best game ever, my brother loves it, and for only $8 it’s worth it! I would totally recommend this to you if your interested in prison games And also, this game is highly addicting, as soon as I bought it for my brother, he loved it, then I started playing and PMG I CANT STOP! Keep up the great work team17

This is best game ever so worth the MONEY

Ethan Bro9

Amazing but a few bugs and issues.  Ethan Bro9  4 star

I really love the game I'm on the last prison HMP-Irongate and it was perfect except there is a few bugs and issues. The bug is when you first start, it has the black around and it slowly fades, if I'm about to escape I will reload and an inmate will attack me and I will lose all my items and I will have no choice but to lose them. The issues is you can't make some items. For example: you can't make powered screwdriver or plated gaurd outfit ect. If you fix the bugs/issues then I will go to a five star. Great job on creating the game. 100% worth the money. Edit: I restarted and I had everything I needed to escape and I keep getting killed! No matter what I keep getting killed! This is so frustrating so now I have to start all over again..


Great game  Pics2take  5 star

Great game except it’s really hard and frustrating(but I think that’s the point). Also make stuff easier to get because I’m trying to get a metal plate but only one person has it out of like 18 people and you have to buy it and he doesn’t like me so he won’t sell it to me. Which leads me to another problem. If you knock someone out and you check their pockets it’s annoying that you don’t get what they were selling because in real life that would happen(but again I think it would be too easy to get items if that happened).also it’s annoying that if you’re trying to fight someone but you hit someone else like a cop. When someone hits you and then you automatically hit them back and then a guard sees you hit someone else but not them hit you it’s annoying because they chase after you so that’s another problem. Also other NPC’s should be able to be sent to the doctor and to solitary confinement because some people actually have contraband items on them/in their desk. Everything else is amazing and perfect.


One problem  dylon4837  4 star

Well you have to spend like a half an hour just to get to intelligence 50 (you start at 30) and you expect us to wait like 2 hours strait just to get to the max! Other than that this game is realy good you have to find funny and hard and easy and dreadful ways to escape plz fix or remove intelect


Great  Rob.J.H  5 star
