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!

    Now that the license verification problem has been tweaked, I can finally play the game the way it was intended to be played. Since I had to use applications like Lucky Patcher to remove the license verification so I could actually play the game offline. Making it a big hassle. Now from my understanding , it was fixed. Anyway, I loved all the versions of this game, the pc version , the console version... And in this case, the mobile version. This is a very good port of the PC version. Controls can be a bit tedious though. But all things aside, this is a really good strategy game. I would definitely recommend purchasing this. Full Review

    To Boggy B: This wonderful game is amazing! There's dozens of prisons with many ways to escape the prisons and the guards to avoid it's a masterpiece! With the new escapists 2 out now I still love to play the original, one thing that I don't like is if the guards find damage in the prison you automatically get sent to solitary... 😟 This game is a real treat to play, especially on mobile! Team 17 has done it again -Sincerely, Kapt. Kraken. Full Review

    This game is very fun, but I found that I couldn't play it as much as I wanted to because the save points were spaced out a bit too much, so I couldn't really play for a few minutes at a time. But I do hope that soon enough you guys will release the Escapists 2 for mobile, as that would be really awesome. Edit: I was playing the game and made it to the 5th base game prison, San Pancho I think it's called, so after I finished the 4th one I closed the game and took a break. I come back half and hour later and open the app again. When I go to the prison selection, all the prisons I had beat are locked, and I can only do the first one. Why? What happened? I lost all my in game progress, and I don't know how or why. Full Review

    Great game I highly recommend this for people who have nothing to do and the little characters are so cute. You could definitely add guns to the guards instead of batons but other than that it's an amazing game. Full Review

    I bought this earlier this week for my son so he could play it on his tablet. In order to play it I have to remain logged in on his tablet. I am not willing to do this nor should I have to. I went through the licensing information as we keep getting the licensing error. The end result is that I have to remain logged into my account for my son to play. I would like a refund please! There used to be an option to press refund on the install screen but now it is gone because it took more than 48 hours to figure this out. Googleplay directed me back to the developer, thus here I am., writing this. Full Review

    The game is AWESOME i have it on the pc and will never get tired of it, but in this mobile version has a little bit of issues in it. First is the controls, i find it sometimes painful to use because its in the bottom left, You could improve the controls by letting the player decide where they want the buttons and the moving pad. Second is the size of the view/fov in the game its hard to interact with the npc:s especially in smaller phones, if the fov could be adjusted by the player it would make it easier. 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

    This it just a visual issue, but when I am making the app go into full screen mode on the note8, the sides of the screen flicker in and out of frame, from showing to not showing as if it isn't taking the full screen into account. Playing games in a squished mode instead of taking advantage of full screen is frustrating. Full Review

    Known to me as the most creative and beautiful game I have come across, ESPECIALLY cause the music, usually the little characters are adorable to me and mostly some music is intense when it comes to escaping. I hope you, "Team 17" can implement the escapists 2. If So, I'm Pumped!!! Full Review

    Skip this mess. Lots of the recipes from the pc port are missing. Game has several game breaking bugs. It auto saves in the worst places with no way to go a previous save. Gaurds randomly attack you then game autosaves. Once you load you are unable to move, so when the guards knock you out you lose everything. Full Review
