This looks cool, I wonder how many more levels are avaiable via IAP.

Additional content can be purchased from within the game (chapter 2 with four new levels)

Thanks...I missed that.

Picked this up and it is a really good line drawing game. Graphics are very good and there is a lot of detail in the environments. Touch controls are perfect (playing on an iPad) and overall it offers up a grat arcade experience.

Chapter one has five sections but only one is open at the start. In this level you are trying to move the inmates from their cells to various locations where a floor grate has been moved. If you move into a guards view, he will shoot you. To add to the experience there are a bunch of power ups that you can use, ranging from double points, double speed, gas attacks ect. These really come in handy the deeper you get.

So far I have only played two levels but I can say that this is easily worth .99. The only negative for me is the horrible music and voices.

nice impressions, it looks good from the screens, I wish there was a vid but I can't find any at the moment.

This looks really good, but it's currently not available on the Danish AppStore.
What's up with that?
Any plans for a worldwide release?

I like the game, but I wish they had playtested it a bit more.

For example, in the second level, one of the exit points is in the lower left corner of the screen. about 10 pixels to the left of the exit point is the popup for special abilities. I'm constantly hitting the popup when I try to move a prisoner to the exit. Stuff like that should have been found in playtesting.

Still, a very good game. Well worth the 99 cents.

Data East, Kon, Square, Midway, Capcom all have special places in my heart.
