Quote:
In Prison Mayhem, hand-cuffed criminals shuffle into the prison, and you have to change them into prison duds and lock them in a cell. Some criminals come in solo while others come in groups of two or three. Cell space is limited, however, and bigger groups of prisoners can't be shoved into the tiny cells, so prisoner placement isn't a mindless decision.

Once you have a few prisoners locked away, you'll have to attend to their basic needs, like hunger, injury, and boredom. Sometimes they'll get into fights that you need to break up, and sometimes they'll try to escape. When a prisoner is reformed, you'll need to let him out and clean his cell before you can put someone else in. It's a lot to handle and there's only one warden, so you have to juggle these tasks intelligently. If you don't, the game becomes hectic very quickly.

Four different prisons will available when the games is released, with 10 levels in each. You can customize the prisons to your liking, or you can let them remain dingy dumps. There are 12 different prisoner types that are introduced as you progress through the game. You'll encounter everyone from common thugs to corrupt accountants, and each one will have different needs. If level progression isn't your thing, you can play the endless Life Sentence mode to see how long you can stay on top of the ever piling-up tasks.
Prison Mayhem will be released first for the iPad, followed at some point by an iPhone version.

Hi guys!

The game is nearing release and we are SUPER excited about it.

Here are some details on the game:
In the game you play as Bluto, the prison guard and reform prisoners to make them good citizens. As you progress, manage different types of convicts who are sent to prison. Keep the prisoners under control and make sure they don't escape. Play through prisons in different islands to be the ultimate prison guard to win the game!

Sounds exciting, right?

But we have a last minute dilemma and and thought of asking fellow TA readers for their opinion!

The game is titled 'Prison Mayhem' as we thought 'Mayhem' would indicate 'Chaos' which is all this game is about, managing Chaos in the prison and reforming prisoners.

However a few (2 out of 30) of our beta testers felt that the 'Mayhem' part of the game's title conveys 'violent crime/maiming' and might not sit well with some iOS users.

Do you think that would be the case?

I see absolutely no problem with the use of Mayhem in the title. Game looks good.

Mayhem seems fine to me. Even though they are similar definitionally, I have never heard mayhem used to indicate maiming. Personally, I would use mayhem in the game title.
