  • Love the game

    By neardyboy11
    Love the game but I’m also a little frustrated because I get attacked by the officers for no reason (when I’m in a fight I didn’t even start) It really just makes me so frustrated!! Another thing is y can’t we know how to craft every item it would really help While I’m on the topic of items is there any way that y’all could put in a way to let us (the people whom play the game) know how to use items in the game for example: i don’t know how to use the rope or how to make a zip line and I would really like to know how to use the rope and craft a zip line so if u can please add this stuff in PS: this is just a suggestion I don’t want to come off rude or needy
  • Just got the game...

    By JustAnwar
    And it’s barely playable. I’m on an iPhone X and the text is cut off by the notch. So during the tutorial you can barely figure out what to be doing. Add to that the size of text and I stopped right after moving the desk. Just wasn’t able to figure out what to do next. Hopefully an update fixes this but I’m guess that’s doubtful as this phones been out over a year now. Wasted $4 :/
  • display, controls flawed

    By MineolaMom
    It is SO difficult to move around—either with the analog joystick-type controls or with the touch controls... AND the text-box instructions keep appearing at the far left of the screen, but the left half of the box is always cut off so I can’t read it. I’ve tried on two different devices—iPad Mini and iPhone 7–and have instruction box-cutoff problem on both. Frustrated and wish I hadn’t wasted money on this...
  • Add this 🙂

    By lissa28
    Please add this it would make me so happy GUARD MODE! WHAT YOU CAN DO: -get the normal things guards get. -pick your key 🔑 red, blue, yellow, green. -sense when a metal detector goes off -do stuff at morning mid-day or evening roll call
  • Great, except that...

    By ShanePlused
    This game is the best escape game I’ve ever played in my life. So what’s the big problem you may ask? Well at roll-call even when I’m in line the cops will still be mad that I’m not in line even when I know I’m 100% in line( this might be at other times during the day not just roll-call ). Then sometimes my game will crash randomly and I loose all my progress. So pretty please with a cherry on top add a save that starts you exactly where you left off( you don’t have to just a suggestion ). This next one you might get a lot but I think I should still point it out just in case, so you know how mobile keys break after 4 uses and the others keys last at least 10 times, please make the mobile keys last as long as theirs. Okay this one doesn’t have anything to do with this review but can you add creative mode to the mobile version please. And can you also add escapists 2 to mobile please( just more suggestions remember you don’t have to, and if you do add escapists 2 to mobile you should have it cost money because that’s fair for you guys and gals. Okay that’s all thank you for your time🙂. Okay update, thank you for fixing those glitches and adding escapists 2 to mobile. In jingle cells there isn't any flashlights anywhere.
  • Better

  • Awesome!

    By yeeetarama
    I’ve been playing the escapists only for a while, but I love it, all the same. Although, I will say that guards will give you heat at rollcall when your in line. And some items are a little too rare. But those are my only complaints. Awesome prisons, personalities, smooth and quick graphics, and my personal favorite, prisoners in their underwear! Amazing, and well thought up game.
  • Not formatted for iPhone X

    By Leewanda
    The game has text boxes that are cut off by the iPhone X notch. I can’t read them. So disappointed. Was really looking forward to playing. To make make matters. I tried to submit a support ticket and the developer website errors out with: Missing CSRF session token. The session that has generated this token has already been used and is not available. Please reload the page and submit a new form. Will be looking for refund. Frustrating!
