Top Pcmac Reviews

  • Great, except that...

    By ShanePlused (Pcmac user)

    This game is the app best escape game I’ve ever played in my life. So what’s the app big problem you may ask? Well at roll-call even when I’m in line the app 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 app 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 app others keys last at least 10 times, please make the app 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 app 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.
  • Great Game!

    By Shadow Dragon 717 (Pcmac user)

    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 app 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 app 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 app crafting recipes online and keep it by your side while you play, is in my opinion the app way to keep the app 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 ;)
  • Great game but one terrible bug/glitch

    By Me like Stampy (Pcmac user)

    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 app officers would yell at me and tell me to get to the app place I’m supposed to be. I’ll say an example that happened to me in another prison on the app 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 app cop suspicion points thing(the app ones that if you get over 90, the app 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 app time. It seems like it would be easy to find, and it is. If the app 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.
  • Random lockdown glitches!

    By Zchloi (Pcmac user)

    Great concept! Though I wish devs would release their apps without unpolished glitches. Prime example which really annoys me is how one day I woke up and got an instant lockdown out of nowhere! I didn’t do anything at all to provoke the app guards and this was before roll call even happened! Since I was crammed in my cell there was nowhere I could go and as a result got beaten by three guards! Now escape is almost impossible since those three guards now have a low opinion of me and once someone gets a low opinion of you it is hard to get their opinion back up! Every day without fail now a inmate with a low opinion beats me up at breakfast before I have a chance to execute a plan and since a good amount of guards have a low opinion I get beat up too missing breakfast! Please fix this since it is starting to get frustrating and in this day and age games shouldn’t be this buggy!
