Build and Manage a Maximum Security Prison - Requires iPad 3 or newer!

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

Prison Architect: Mobile reviews and comments

From The demo seems promising, the game immediately manages to excite the user and, as far as I'm concerned the price of the game would be even more than justified. However, when you unlock the full version begin to emerge the first bugs, especially with workers, which suddenly and punctually in each game seem to close in a room and then not go out... Personally I have not been able to unlock the situation, so much so that I saw myself forced to play a new game. Driving Them and putting them back is useless, they don't come into the room anymore but they don't start working anymore.

I State that the game I always liked, I knew him in the PC version and just went out for iOS I downloaded immediately and paid the full price of the game. Today, after several months of non-use gives me all the options to pay and I can not even play in the free mode as it is paid, I restored the purchases several times but nothing happens and even restarting the app continues to go out to Payment as if I had never bought it... I'VE ALREADY PAID FOR THE WHOLE GAME! I also have some old rescues of months that prove it, only having the full game I could have had those rescues since the mode is not available for free... I give a star hoping to be able to play back to the version I paid

To those who complain about the mecker who say it is too expensive. This is a pc game and they have already earned their money through the pc version. Only porting costs apply to the app and the viiiiel app is too expensive for that. £550 for the whole game would be more than fair. (See other apps like "Darkest Dungeon For £5.50). €16am is already a announsage for nen app game ... For €5.50 I would have liked to buy but so it is too expensive because I think if I once built 2-3 days at a prison then I certainly do not start to build one more ... A few days fun but then only for hardcore fans. In Addition, who still has a bit of basic mathematics on it knows that the developers earn themselves stupid and stupid. Just multiply the sales figures and don't be surprised if you end up in the multi-digit million range xD since stays after all deductions what left to survive ...
