Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, which now includes another prison in the latest update; "Duct tapes are forever", which transports The Escapists to the secret world of spies, evil villains and tuxedos.

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 "Duct Tapes are Forever" included in the latest update.A villainous boss is determined to track down and capture all the spies who consistently scupper his plans. Take control of a tuxedo-clad super spy as you find yourself trapped his lair.

Become an Escapist now!

    Very enjoyable game with variety, charm and plenty of depth that translates surprisingly well to touch controls. Few clever pop culture references in there too, including even a nod to the excellent Chris Morris show "Brasseye". Very entertaining stuff! 5 stars. Full Review

    Please add Santa's Sweatshop. It's an amazing game though. It has some challenges and it's fun. And also if you can please add area 17 or whatever it is called and make the UFO able to be used is single player. Full Review

    I was looking up prison escape games when I came across this. Because it cost I had put it on my digital wishlist to bookmark it for later then did some research and decided to download it. It is such a great game I play every spare second I have even at work. If you have the money download this game you will love it. Also for team 17 Digital Limited cam you please add a "Build a Prison" option to the game I will rate five stars. Full Review

    A good game that just needs a few improvements to be really great. The only problem I have is the fact that random characters will just attack me for no reason as I pass by, and I will end up in the infirmary with none of my contraband items. If you could fix this it would be great because this is a really good game. Full Review

    My son was really looking forward to getting this game. He saved up his money and was finally able to purchase the game at five dollars and change. The game downloaded but he is unable to play, and error message appears saying invalid license. Now I have a disappointed boy and I'm down almost 6 dollars. Complete waste Full Review

    Can you guys fix the bar bug? The objects I grab get highlighted and stay that way unless I double tap them.. it's so annoying and it triggers my OCD ! It also happens when crafting. Full Review

    The main complaint i have is about the controls. PLEASE change it to a d pad. Also, what about a prison maker? Or at least access to the custom prisons. Also please remove the transition that happens when you load a save or make the character invunerable during the transition. Full Review

    The game is so fun but I'm just waiting for more prisons but it's too easy and I got the game a few days ago and I completed all the prisons even the extras really fast but can you add multi player for local and WiFi, it would be really fun playing with others playing by yourself isn't that fun, can you also add custom prisons I've noticed all lot of people wanting that, Hope You Read All Of This.

    Edit: Oh, they responded to my support email a month and 5 days after I last sent them my issue with the game. To everyone who installs this game and has issue - GET A REFUND IMMEDIATELY. SUPPORT AT TEAM17 AWFUL. The on-screen controls are impossible to use because on small phone screens. The control surface area is far too small to actually be able to gain control over the way the character moves. If you find the control scheme unusable like me you're stuck with a dud of a game.
