App description: "Plays like Grand Theft Auto behind bars... prison has never been such an open world!"

Wrestling Revolution's unique brand of violence finally ends up where it belongs - behind bars! Create your own inmate and attempt to survive in a prison where every sentence is a "death" sentence. Rub shoulders with up to 100 fellow inmates in a sprawling facility of 12 unique areas, each filled with fully interactive furniture and props. Plus a life beyond the gates populated by real civilians, with wardens enforcing dozens of different laws to keep you as far away from it as possible.

Each day, you will find your health and mental state slipping away. Both can be restored by sleeping - which is also a good way to pass time. You won't always be permitted to sleep, though, so consuming food and drink bridges the gap. These, along with many other activities such as reading or watching TV, can also help to improve your mental state. If you "lose your mind" you will temporarily lose control of your character - and will almost certainly get into trouble!

Your character also has a set of attributes that you are challenged to improve:
- STRENGTH indicates how much damage you can inflict or absorb. You can improve it by fighting or lifting weights.
- AGILITY determines how fast you move. You can improve it by jogging in the yard or scoring baskets.
- INTELLECT reflects your knowledge - including fighting skills such as counters. You can improve it by reading books.
- REPUTATION is how much other prisoners respect you. It can be improved by accomplishing tasks or intimidating others.

There are also opportunities to earn money - whether you work for it with a broom, trade items at a profit, or run with a gang. Having money increases your opportunities to grease the wheels and make your life inside easier.

You may find that you need to go to the toilet from time to time, in which case you must race to the bathroom! Alternatively, you could find a toilet to sit on or grab some toilet paper to spare your blushes. Failing to do so will damage your reputation and mental state.

I regret that there is more to this game than I could ever explain here, so I hope you enjoy figuring some things out for yourself!

Upgrade to "VIP" to enjoy the full experience without ads - plus access to the editor that allows you to customize your character and every other.

BASIC CONTROLS:
(*Look out for tutorials within the actual game)
A = Attack (on its own to kick, with a direction to punch)
G = Grapple / Throw weapon
R = Run
P = Pick-Up / Drop
T = Taunt (interact with handheld props)

OTHER CONTROLS
- Press ATTACK and RUN together to launch a powerful attack.
- Press any button with any direction (or none) in a grapple to trigger different moves.
- Press RUN and PICK-UP together to set fire to a small object (which can then be used to set fire to a large object).
- Touch the clock to pause the game and bring up options to exit.
- Touch any speech bubble to speed through conversations.

PERFORMANCE
- If you find your device struggles to display lots of characters, considering keeping the "Population" option low.
- "Speed Up Frame Rate" sleeping will require good performance at the default frame rate.
- Head to the "Display" options to tone down other features.

I'm enjoying the game so far, but I have a couple of, maybe dumb, questions. I got body slammed on the tv, it exploded, and now I'm injured, how long does it take to get better? And how do you "use" an item? Like workout with a barbell.

To work out you press and hold the taunt button. Not sure about injury time, in wrestling revolution the injurys are time specific so who knows. ??

90's or no, this game and the others he's made are unforgivibly bad. The problem is that there is NO game underneath. You go around beating people, and when they're near dead, they give you a tip on how to kill someone. Look past the late graphics, the awkward controls, and bad ai, and look to the gameplay and story. There's nothing. No good story. But, I suppos the gameplay is... Eh.
1/10, only reason is because of the only good part of the game, the character creator.
I'll admit right from the start that some of his earlier games looked terrible, but you're very ignorant on one thing. Every programmer/artist has their own style. It's ridiculous to say that someone who uses a more modern style is superior to someone who uses a more retro/oldies style.

Also, you are misinformed on one thing. Stories can be either linear or decision driven. Linear is obvious, everything's pre-determined by a script. Wrestling Revolution and Hard Time both have a decision driven storyline. You do x, y happens. Isn't that what happens in a normal story? You gather x items, you get y reward. You kill x monster, you open up y area. In dealing with a decision driven storyline, in Wrestling Revolution, you win the championship, you gain haters. You constantly dominate another wrestler, they'll eventually get tired of it and try to negotiate a ceasefire with you. You go out for a night of drinks, you'll be woozy if you have a match the next day. Everything you do has a consequence that you have to deal with. The exact same mechanic is present in Hard Time, which MDickie himself claims is "Wrestling Revolution behind Bars." I'm sorry that you can't see the obvious story elements present in both games. I'm sorry that you can only see the game for its action mechanics.

You say all of MDickie's games are terrible? Well then, it's really unfortunate that you are unable to see the brilliance in his latest gems.

Oooomonkey, you seem to be very knowledgeable. Could you clarify on the injury time? For example, in 2 different matches, I'll be at perfect health. However, in one of them, one punch downs me for like 2 seconds, while the other downs me for like 20 seconds. It just seems so random to me.

Also, if you know how to set things on fire, could you please let me know that as well? I've tried pressing every button next to flammable objects, but it never gets set on fire. Is there a specific condition?

Any other hidden tricks I should know about? ;p

To set things on fire it should be the run and pickup buttons together when next to something
About the hitting and knock downs, I remember mdickie saying on facebook that there's a lot of stat things going on behind the scenes taking into account things like your and your enemy's strength and skill,agility ect, to factor into all the moves and situations.
Which is why the graphics are also kept simple as there's a lot going on that we don't see.
