I love this game. Definitely worth the money. One downside is that you have to guess how to craft something. Making a recipe menu like in the 2nd version would help. Also there is no way to hide all your contriband. There should be hidden compartment or something like in the other version. It does get a little laggy after the 3rd prison though. The more prisoners makes it laggy and the fps drops when you are near a large group like a roll call or in the showers. Again, great game!

it's amazing and really fun, my only problem is I'm not good at it and I can never get pass shankton (3rd map I think) but I still love the game, I like to just wait for a long time perfecting different strategies, but I often get quite frustrated and end up uninstalling, but that just means I get to redo to progress and try new routes. currently looking at the tunneling one, that was my plan for shankton last timeanyway... anyway, it's great, I love it, you should get it to person reading this!

This is an amazing app and I have played it for about a year. The only thing I have noticed is that sometimes it glitches. One time 2 guards froze and I needed ones key but they were frozen. Only them. Other than that all I have noticed is that in jingle cells the metalshop job is glitched. I couldn't do the job because I couldn't reach the pressing machine no matter what I tried. Otherwise it's a great game. I totally recommend it.
