  • Loved on console, obnoxious on mobile

    By Perfperfperfffffection
    I’ve been playing this game on my console for a while, and I enjoyed it very much. I installed it on my iPhone, and once I got to prison #2, some issues began to happen. First, I was at the end of day 1, and my game randomly crashed. It reset at my most recent save (which was roll call) it wasn’t a huge deal, but I had spent the entire day getting intelligence 80 so I had to redo that. Second, I had knocked out 2 guards, which began a lockdow, where I lost everything (im not sure if this is intentional, but even if it wasn’t, I’m not including this in my review rating) Third, I had knocked out a guard, made key moulds, then returned the key. I had the little pop up notifying me that the game couldn’t save if I was in danger of being caught, with an image of the knocked out guard. I double checked the guard still had his original key in his inventory (which he did). When he woke up, i was sent to solitary and lost everything for a third time. I love this game, and this has never happened before, which is why I’m giving a 4/5. If these bugs never occurred, I would rate this game a 6/5.
  • Good game but..

    By Mason10507
    I was playing this game, and had lots of things in my inventory that were important, like a sock mace, hammer, etc. but when someone attacked me, the game fought back for me, even tho I didn’t want to fight back. This made the guards mad, and I lost all my materials. Please fix this bug, as it ruined my progress.
  • What is going on?!?☹️

  • There is too much glitches.

    By gamer3592
    There is a big glitch. I lose all of my stuffs basically what when I got knocked out I was teleported to the evening Call I was about to leave the prison but I died no biggie right well no I got teleported in the metal detector usually if you only spent like one second nobody will fight you what I was stuck in the metal detector for the cut scene to be gone so all of the officers we’re beating me up even though I could not move
  • Great Game! + Some Recommendations

    By CutiePie006
    Hello developers and players! Great game! But a couple of recommendations. Please add female characters. Some people want to make the choice of making their own female or male character and not choosing from the selected few. Also I would like to get the choice to be a cop or prisoner and to be able to play with friends (if you did not add it yet) Btw please make a control to make it easy, hard, or impossible as difficulty levels and that those controls change the guard flashlight size, other’s speed, aim of the beams when escaping , and finally the strength of everyone else. If you see this thank you for listening (reading) this and for the developers I hope you add these! Peace ☮️
  • Good, but has issues

    By Sit Back And Yeet
    Game is good, but often has bugs and glitches. Combat is also terrible, where enemies will dogpile you with no escape and speech bubbles taking up the entire screen.

    By Personproffessor
    I like the escapists. I also got the escapists two. when I was playing the escapists 2, I realized that the escapists could have a lot more variety whilst customizing your look.
