The Escapists (Android)
Today, I am really happy to present you a game I was really happy to know that it was coming to mobile devices and of course I am talking about The Escapists. But what is this game? Is it worth picking it up if you own the steam version? Glad you asked, stick around and you will find out right now. 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. The very first thing that I really loved in this game is definitely the graphics of this great title. They are sharp, unique and in general the 2D graphics are really AMAZING. I have missed sooo much a solid and good-looking 2D game so when I start playing the game I immediately fell in love with them. They are really good and it offers a great gameplay experience that everyone will love for sure! It offers a great experience especially, after a hard day at the office.
The game was really smooth on my phone (Sony Xperia Z2) and the Bravia screen really enhanced the already high gameplay experience the title has to offer. Another thing I loved in this game is the fact that you can customize the characters ALL the characters of the prison as you like and choose the inmate that you would like to be most! I always love when game devs give you such options in their games! Different characters=different experiences…the more customizations the better!
Another thing that made the game a really unique experience, at least for me, is the difficulty level. Even on the very easy map you will find really challenging to escape. The progressive difficulty is really essential in order to learn the game better and test your skills in different situations. Various escape methods are really appreciated since it gives the game a high replay value. Last but not least, I would like to see more exclusive, for phones, content in the future pt the DLCs that are available on the PC version (and definitely FREE for those that bought the app).
To sum up, The Escapists is a gem for your android device. I definitely recommend picking it up ASAP! Go, go, go! It is honestly a really fun and addictive title, not easy at all, that will make you spend a lot of hours on it.
