The adorable prison escape ’em up breaks onto iOS and Android this week – it’s The Escapists mobile versions.

In the great tradition of simulation games about serious subjects that are actually quite fun – a lot of people died in Theme Hospital, when you really think about it – The Escapists takes a rotten situation and makes it quite fun. Yes, you’ll probably end up shiving some dude in the shower, cracking several guards’ heads in and burning down the whole wing, but that’s all part of the fun, right?

And now you’ll be able to do all those things and more on mobile, with The Escapists mobile versions on the way very soon.
