App description: Build and Manage a Maximum Security Prison!

Escape from reality but not from your custom-made jail! Prison Architect: Mobile challenges you to build and manage a maximum security prison, from laying out cell blocks and inmate facilities, to managing staff pay and prisoner morale. From layout to execution (literally, in some cases), you are the architect, the warden, and the enforcer.

Prison designs will include basic necessities like cells, canteens, guard rooms, and infrastructure, but players can also include features like solitary confinement, workout areas, and even an execution chamber. The tablet version comes with enough to get started, with additional story-driven campaign chapters and more features available as premium content.

Prison Architect: Mobile includes:
- Build and manage a prison to house a variety of different prisoners
- Juggle inmate needs with security concerns, infrastructure, and the ever-looming budget
- Follow the story in Campaign Mode to learn new prison-building techniques and get to know life behind bars through a series of cutscenes and objectives
- Unlock more Campaign chapters with one-time purchases
- Violent Offenders: Manage different types of criminals and keep control through floods, fires, fights, and full-blown riots

Introversion Software, developers of critically acclaimed games, bring you a new mobile version of their award-winning PC hit. Together with the master strategists at Paradox Interactive, Introversion's Prison Architect: Mobile will provide you with enough challenging fun to last an entire life sentence!

Now this is great on the PC, i rather have paid full price for it but with this try before you buy model if you dont like it then you can delete it without spending money on it first.

I am flying to Seattle for a job interview next week. So normally I would demand it does get released everywhere now. To the point of risking war with the European nation. lol

But then I read that this is iPad only, and now I am sad faced.

I am playing Dwarf Fortress via the app and I can play RimWorld successfully through SplashTop - so do not give me "the ui wouldn't make this a fun experience" excuses.

Make this universal and release this everywhere, or prepare for the most epic real life tantrum spiral a grown man can create. Which may or may not involve lots of wine and yelling at the neighbors childreb playing in the street.



In all seriousness though..... universal would be nice.

Game plays surprising great on my iPad 3rd gen. I was worried it wouldn't but it does. They really did a great job with the port.

If you have a JB 6+ or 7 then this will work on your device. I've tried it on my 6+ and it's working albeit yeh ok the text is on the smaller side and not the most eligible font but still it's freaking PA in my pocket.

I like the way they've done this as try then buy in app. If that helps them prevent theft as well(assimilated with JB) then I'm all for it. Just so glad it's working on iPhone albeit needing to be JB'd to force install.

Wish I could. MDM is a POS.

About how long are you planning on keeping the game in soft launch? I was able to download and play but want to purchase the full version. The game plays perfect, no bugs or anything.

Been playing this on my iPad Mini 4 and enjoying it a lot. It makes sense that this is only available on iPad. Definitely requires more screen real estate to see the map and select what to build.

Currently playing: Marvel Future Fight, Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, Injustice Gods Among Us, Madden, NBA Live, and Crashlands.

I'm not able to use the paste tool seams like a bug. Also I'm not able to recruit informants or shedule guard patrols. I can create patrols just not shedule them like in pc. Also intelligence screen seams to not take into account information gathered by phone taps and its kind of a pain to track contraband on the map since the contraband screen gets in the way. Last but not least placing stuff is a bit tricky at times. Apart from these issues game plays really well. Hope they polish up the bugs and release it in the US quick.
