Blatantly inspired by the TV show, Jail Escape is a stealth action game, perhaps with a gameplay comparable to Prince of Persia but avoiding and tricking guards instead of challenging them to swashbuckling duels. You control the main character through the on screen buttons, which are quite unresponsive (or they dislike you a lot) and make this game extremely difficult since the very first stage.
Graphics aren't worthy of much interest either. This game has good intentions, but the agressive unplayability and the so-so technical performance make really hard to recommend it. Perhaps if there was an onscreen pad and animations were a little bit smoother, it'd be more fun to try to escape the jail in question, but it's most likely you despair at the first chance. Anyway, if you give it a go, know beforehand that game mechanics are unclear, because sometimes you're spotted by guards when sharing the same floor and sometimes not.
We won't ask for its developer to be put in jail because we understand that developing games is one of the hardest ways to make for a living, but this game actually needs further development in all areas. In-game ads interrupting the play don't help, by the way.
