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

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!

Can u make escapists 2 on mobile iOS  roragh  5 star

I love this game so much but can u make the 2nd one for iPhone?


Amazing Game But There's a Glitch  slykitten36  4 star

I love this game so much! But there is a glitch where I steal the key, craft a key mold, craft a plastic key, return the original key, and then I get sent to solitary even though no one saw. I don't think that's supposed to happen.

Good......  Fescsffscscsfwgagwg not real  3 star

Eh this game was fun for a while but then the prisons got way to hard, this game is NOTHING compared to escapists 2 but it is a time waster with no in app purchases maybe u should put escapists 2 on the App Store or add a setting for multiplayer and so u can build prisons. Pretty good game only rating 3 stars because it is so short and once u beat all the campaign levels the extras are really really hard. And u should add more prisons to this game.


4 and a half stars  naked.68  3 star

Really, really, really good game, you have the crafting recipes, hard to get, I like it. There are a few things I do not like, and it’s the map and the fact that no matter where you are, whether you dug or chipped in some random place or stole a key, you get caught and do not even get the chance to put it back or fix it, and you either get sent to solitary, or last checkpoint. You can literally not know the map unless you go everywhere, and, I know that it is on escapists 2, so is the solitary thing but it’s not on mobile, so I do not have it, and because it’s $20 on computer, not gonna happen. I really, really enjoy this game until I try to get someone else in trouble and then you get sent to solitary, AND ITS NOT IN YOUR ROOOM! But, I really do enjoy this game, and plz put escapists 2 on mobile.


Glitch  iballistiCollin  5 star

When I look at the thing in the menu that tells you how to craft stuff it doesn’t show the recipe it only tells you 1 item that you need


This game has a few bugs  Alien8Ed1  5 star

I saw my cousin play this and now I'm trying to play it but it is taking for ever to load.


More  LISTEN AND FIX PLZ  3 star

More prisons needed and iOS I can’t escape duct taps f forever it’s glitched u have to fix it too more prisons should be added in the regular file instead of the extra


It is great😀  bardthebowman5-chubyunicorn4  5 star

Love the layout


Cool to meh  Djdixhdnjakakdoekenjririfj  3 star

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a cool game! But it becomes tedious. I no longer play this game, and for the price, it wasn’t as gripping as I would have liked.


Need to add pls  Vegalicious  5 star

Could you guys add a way on I phone to make and play other people prison it would make getting that avichment possible for us. Also add multiplayer pls it is very needed like it would have so much more advantages too. Also for multiplayer you should make it so how many prisoners are in the game originally. Do it this would be so much fun if you were just at this. STILL BEST GAME EVER!


It won't download):  Ferrati.Aimee  2 star

For some reason I just bought it and it won't download I really wanted to play this


YOU NEED TO ADD TAZERS!!!!!!!  Coolstink32  4 star



I love it  Sinistertwin22  5 star

Needs more variety of maps


5 stars, suggestions, qna and stuff  3vro5  5 star

—REMOVAL So when someone tries to attack me, it’s automatic to get attack them back, which means if there’s a guard around. I will get sent to solitary no matter what. So, can you fix this? Or make a mode where you don’t automatically attack them back? But anyways I’m giving it 5 stars —SUGGESTIONS Please make a prison creator where you can make your own prison Please make it so you can be a guard. But, you need to beat that prison 5 times to be a guard... I know that you can just wear guard outfit but I want keys and other guard stuff... Make more weapons like a death knife, this one-shots EveryThing. A gun... Make cooked food give energy Make a map of the prison with the names so you can tell where they are Make it so you can get past those red key doors, every escapist (besides me) can get through that red key door. That’s not fair —QNA If you have a contraband on your desk, how do you remove it? I got a shakedown and I don’t know how to remove it How do you get intellect? That’s it...


Great  HYPER ASH  5 star

Please make a prison creator


Love it!  •TheReviewer•  4 star

Yuh, I do love this game. It's smooth, unique and keeps you on your toes. However. One complaint. WHY ARE THERE NO FEMALE CHARACTERS? I mean come on it's the 21st century! Girls play video games (*mind blown*). It's only minor but I would love to see this added. Thanks!

Marley Mosenki

The best prison game ever!😦  Marley Mosenki  5 star

This game is highly addictive and just fun to play. Can’t stop playing! I can’t think of any faults in this game at all WHATSOEVER!!!! Keep up all the good work you guys 🙂 MarzBarz300 Out!😎👊🏾✌🏾


Make multi player mode  minerbenawsome  4 star

Make two payer mode and online


Just one complaint  Youtuber JUMPY_CREEP  4 star

I really love the game! But there is a glitch where for instance, on day seven you get caught with contraband in your desk, then you decide to load your LAST SAVE after that you hurry back to your desk on DAY SEVEN like when you where caught, to stop the guard from finding out you have contraband. So you race back to your desk and just as you open the desk to take out the contraband it’s ALL GONE please change this!

King of terraria

Wow. Just wow.  King of terraria  5 star

This game caught me right from the start. Addictive, fun and not too hard. I love this game SO much. It is AMAZINGLY made. I can't wait for Escapists 2 on mobile. :)

Bacon Turkeybeef

Da best game ever  Bacon Turkeybeef  5 star

The escapists is personally my favorite game I the App Store. It is definitely the most accurate prison simulator out there. If I could chose one thing to change I would like recruiting for iOS. It makes the App Store version a lot harder than pc. But even if they don’t add that, this is still da best game ever.

Brians review

Just a suggestion  Brians review  5 star

I have noticed when you beat the game theres nothing to do so I suggest that you add a multiplayer mode, a sandbox mode where there are no rules you can rhome around freely, a cheat mode where you get a grid of cheats only at the end of the game and you can cheat on any prison, and lastly a mode that lets you make your own prision and you can make the ai act diffrent also a multiplayer mode

you shold love it

Prison escapee  you shold love it  5 star

I recommend this app to anyone who loves a good challenge and interesting story line plus test your luck and skill on the variety of prisons. Tip: make sure you read your book in the pause and read the ways to craft and escape enjoy.


5 stars for awesomeness  Nshduz  5 star

No Problem


Glitches  SaveOurApps  2 star

I can't bare these glitches. 1. There is no comb in the Extra Maps except for Alcatraz 2. Every time I get caught and reload a save the game crashes. 3. Sometimes the job board is just blank 4. I punch somebody even though I really didn't do anything I'm considering to delete the app if the comb glitch doesn't get fixed because that is a major item in the game.


AWSOME SAWS  Mybootownhelp  4 star

Still awsome saws

Apple Ideas

Suggestion towards the developers of this game.  Apple Ideas  5 star

So this game is just wonderful. A full set of missions, sets of difficulties, very challenging, and best of all, fun. But what do we do once we are all done with the game? I have interview people, and they were pleased with the game, they loved the game, except the fact that there is nothing more to do once the game is complete, and that they had to pay for the game, so I was thinking, why not develop a multiplayer mode? So you can play online, it makes the game more fun, and it gives people a reason why they should keep playing this amazing game, good day.


I HAVE AN INSANE OPTION YOUR YOU TO ADD  [email protected]  5 star

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GAME BUT IT WOULD BE EVEN BETTER WITH MULTIPLAYER!!!! AT LEAST BLUETOOTH, as in with your friend in the same house hold and not online because you can’t talk with online people with iOS, PLEASE GET BACK TO ME ABOUT THIS OPTION


Please try this but awesome game...  Dyl236464521173  5 star

Please try and add more extra prisons like Santa’s sweat shop or some other ones that are in the pc version but thank you for the great game

the walking and talking

Add in the walking dead  the walking and talking  5 star

Very good game just like the pc version but one thing, they need to add in the walking dead. I know a lot of walking dead fans and escapist fans would love a up date like this to iOS & android witch would be grate update
