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

    Great game. Amazing replayability. Controls are a little rough around that edge, but that's most mobile games. Love it! Hoping that we will see The Escapists 2 hit mobile one day. Big thank you to the devs for this one! Full Review

    Pretty good port to phone. Just finished making my first escape, which seems to be easiest by attacking guards at the front gate after building your physical fitness to max. Full Review

    I like the game slot but lately there's been a bug where I can't see what's written in any signs. I can't apply or see what kind of jobs are available for example among other information I can't receive. Makes it not possible to progress through the game. Full Review

    The game is awesome but it will not let me use the dpad. And it is a little annoying. Every time i switch it on it just forces me to use the analogue. And i cannot navigate with that at all. Full Review

    Hey I need some help, I think there's a bug. I can't see any names or jobs on the job board any more. It's just a blank sheet. I'm a little coonfused as to why I can't see the list Full Review

    So, I haven't progressed very far (still in the first prison), but I've noticed that on the Job Board it's completely blank. It's annoying because every other part of this game works, and the job system looks like it would be fun and useful. I hope for an update to fix, so that I may rate the game for its intended experience. Full Review

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING GAME. Although I would love new prisons like the Bonus Prisons. Like Fort Bamford, Camp Epsilon, Paris Central Pen, London Tower, and Jingle Cells. Also more DLC maps, like Fhurst Peak Correctional and Santa's Sweatshop. Full Review

    1) randomly deleted my save. Started over again. 2) either allow manual saves, or keep the last n saves instead of just one. Or at least allow us to start running to some direction before the time starts rolling after a save. I lost even more progress just because it saved at the worst possible moment. Full Review
