I love the Escapists and was debating whether to get it on PC or not, but then this came out and I knew I had to get it! For $4, I could see what the game was all about and have a better opinion on trying the DLC in the PC version (which I hope you add as in-app purchases later!). It was great, my brother and I both were playing it. Except, we were experiencing some launch bugs, which is to be expected. I encountered some text issues with the description of X item in the payphone. Also, sometimes the opening-desk sound kept looping for no apparent reason. My brother's game wouldn't let him escape other prisoners trying to beat him up while loading a save. He was just frozen in place while the black box around the screen faded away and the prisoners had time to come at him and kill him. He died every time he tried loading and was forced to stay in solitary without his items. But these bugs are minor, and I know you can fix them. Anyone that wants to get this game should definitely buy it, it is worth the money! Can't wait to see how it progresses in the future!
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.
When I first bought this game I played it for 10 hours straight. It has role playing elements with strategy and character affinity with item crafting... its a really fun game. The only complaint I have is crafting is supposed to be trial and error. I think this can be extremely frustrating, because you may craft something you think you need. or spend a few virtual days trying to save up for certain items when it turns out they were the wrong items or you didn’t need them. They also make you pay (virtual in-game currency) for “tips” which basically are crafting recipes. Look up the crafting recipes online and keep it by your side while you play, is in my opinion the way to keep the game engaging and not frustrating. I’ve played quite a few mobile games, and this is a gem. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes games to be challenging and engaging while still being a lot of fun. I don’t recommend it to casuals, lol. you may get a little flustered if you’re just used to candy crush ;)
When I first got this game, I thought it was pretty fun but after a day or 2 I realized that when I was at a certain location for that time of day, the officers would yell at me and tell me to get to the place I’m supposed to be. I’ll say an example that happened to me in another prison on the first day in morning roll call, I was waiting for them to tell shake downs and then when cops walked by, they would to tell me to get going to roll call and give me 10 of the cop suspicion points thing(the ones that if you get over 90, the cops attack you). Well when I was waiting at roll call, more cops would walk by and bring my “cop suspicion points” up. And it got over 90 and they attacked me. Terrible bug/glitch that could ruin someone if they had contraband on them at the time. It seems like it would be easy to find, and it is. If the devs see this, please fix it. It’s ruining my playing experience and probably many others. That’s my only complaint, otherwise a great game.
Ok so first off, I LOVED the difficulty scaling, for example the first prison has no metal detectors, vents, a cheap pay phone, and more, and the difficulty got higher and higher slowly, but quickly at the same time of that makes sense. Also, when preforming a (successful) escape attempt, I found my heart racing if it took a long time to get here! The special prisons are super fun and some of the normal ones had exclusive items that felt realistic and fun to try to get and use! Sometimes you have to build REALLY elaborate escape plans and sometimes you just use brute force! Also after you escape a prison you get treated to a little clip of you failing to escape and that explains why you then unlock a harder prison! And it feels soooo satisfying to see your character succeed in escaping from the last one! Overall this game is well worth the price, and it WILL test your wits. If there was a 1-10 rating scale it'd be a 10 so if you like strategy games, get this.
