Softonic review

The Escapists is a simulator for "prison escape". Admit it: you've always wanted a simulator like that.

The Escapists is a full version multiplatform program (also available for Android and Windows) that is part of the category Tools & Utilities.

 Run: as of how that's your choice.

The Escapists is much like Prison Architect, another jails' game, but with much more action. You're a prisoner in a jail and you want to escape. For that you'll have to perform daily tasks (so nobody suspects) and use your free time to prepare your runaway.

If you're looking for a game that won't give you a hand, you'll love The Escapists. You'll have to figure it out to escape, the tittle is not planning on giving you goals or hints. You can negotiate with prison's bands. Or steal a guard's uniform. Or steal a tunnel. Or hide your tools in the bathroom... The Escapists stands out for its freedom of action.

You have content for a while. You have many jails to choose from (which one with its different difficulty levels). Even though the prisons are limited spaces, they're full of details and variables that make you want to escape from them more than once in different ways.

The biggest con of The Escapist it's the waiting. Waiting to have free time to continue with your plans it's just too much. 

Lovely retro aesthetics

Control set surprises with its simplicity. The Escapists uses just a few keys or buttons but you don't need more to let your creativity run or go ahead with your plans. I'm other similar games you can get discouraged by the initial investment of learning the controls. Here in a few minutes you're ready to go.

At a graphics level, The Escapists present an aerial view with 8-Bits graphics. Its music has also a retro style with a lot of "beeps". I can't think of a better aesthetic than this because it reminds me to the classic game "La Abadia del Crimen. 

A great challenge awaits

The Escapist has an original premise, has a lot of content and possibilities, and flaunts a simple control set but yet powerful. Will you be able to escape from all the challenges given by the game? 

PROS

  • Its premise
  • Freedom

CONS
