  • Well a review

    By popytpopty
    The first prison I tried many things first I tried the vents and well there was an indestructible wall then I dug through my cell all the way to the gate but it wouldn’t let me dig up to the top lastly I just knocked out all the guards and then rushed to the gate and left why is there only 1 way to escape for me? Isn’t there supposed to be a lot of ways?
  • This game is great but...

    By Pablothefierce
    I like it but you can’t recruit other prisoners like I would like to. It’s a crucial game mechanic that’s not on mobile. Please add this in
  • Its building time

    By killer isaac
    This game is hard (and amazing) but I want to build a prison other than that I love it
  • Can I escape glitches?

    By Improof
    It was fun figuring out how to escape prisons. Now I’m looking at the extras and trying to fix a tank. If it’s not lagging, it’s frozen. I would appreciate it if you could fix it. Or maybe you could make The Escapists 2 mobile. That looks a lot better and like more of a challenge. It would be too easy if we could reload anytime we made a mistake. Just asking to consider.
  • One of the best mobile games I’ve played

    By Homeboy969
    So far, I am only on the second prison, but this game is great! I play when I’m bored in public and just wanna play a fun game. Define recommend. Only issue is that when someone wants something from you for money, they either want you to beat someone up or steal something, which both lower your reputation. Why not get allowed to deliver letters or something? I know there’s a mailman job but still.
  • Like the new map

    By Wishgrant
    Like the new map it’s great
  • Great game! But one problem...

    By AlpacaZane
    I find it so annoying that when you load a save, you have to wait about 5 seconds to do anything! That means you could get in fights and not even have control over them.
  • Bugs

    By Dddd2212
    Honestly great game! The more you play the better you get. I beat all of the prisons and I’m finishing up my DLC Prisons. Previously I have had buggy experiences and the game would freeze, it would soon be fixed although. Yet the only thing that annoys me and I cannot escape is the Paris Prison DLC, because of how buggy it is when I get on the roof (THE NIGHT I ESCAPE!!). Please fix these bugs; what they are is when a place you have not been to takes long to load, as the chunks lag out and then freeze your game.
  • Please add prison builder mode

    By Two annoyed brothers
    Listen I think that you should be able to build your own prison and post it online
  • Listen devs.
