The toughest prison sim in the yard - now celebrating over 10 MILLION downloads!!!

Create your own inmate and attempt to survive in a prison where every sentence is a "death" sentence. Rub shoulders with up to 100 fellow inmates in a sprawling jail of 12 unique areas, each filled with fully interactive furniture and props. Plus a life beyond the jail populated by real civilians, with wardens enforcing dozens of different laws to stop you from making a break for it.

Each day, you will find your health and mental state slipping away. Both can be restored by sleeping - which is also a good way to pass time. You won't always be permitted to sleep, though, so consuming food and drink bridges the gap. These, along with many other activities such as reading or watching TV, can also help to improve your mental state. If you "lose your mind" you will break down and will temporarily lose control of your character (almost certainly getting into trouble!).

Your character also has a set of attributes that you are challenged to improve:
- STRENGTH indicates how much damage you can inflict or absorb. You can improve it by fighting or lifting weights.
- AGILITY determines how fast you move. You can improve it by jogging in the yard or scoring baskets.
- INTELLECT reflects your knowledge - including fighting skills such as counters. You can improve it by reading books.
- REPUTATION is how much other prisoners respect you. It can be improved by accomplishing tasks or intimidating others.

There are also opportunities to earn money - whether you work for it with a broom, trade items at a profit, or run with a gang. Having money increases your opportunities to grease the wheels and make your life inside easier.

You may find that you need to go to the toilet from time to time, in which case you must race to the bathroom! Alternatively, you could find a toilet to sit on or grab some toilet paper to spare your blushes. Failing to do so will damage your reputation and mental state.

I regret that there is more to this game than I could ever explain here, so I hope you enjoy figuring some things out for yourself.

Upgrade to "VIP" to enjoy the full experience without ads - plus access to the editor that allows you to customize your character and every other.

(*Look out for tutorials within the actual game)
The game uses buttons where letters like GTA represent what they do:
G = Grapple / Throw weapon
T = Taunt (interact with handheld props)
A = Attack (on its own to kick, with a direction to punch)
R = Run
P = Pick-Up / Drop

- Press ATTACK and RUN together to launch a powerful attack.
- Press any button with any direction (or none) in a grapple to trigger different moves.
- Press RUN and PICK-UP together to set fire to a small object (which can then be used to set fire to a large object).
- Touch the clock to pause the game and bring up options to exit.
- Touch any speech bubble to speed through conversations.

- If you find your device struggles to display lots of characters, considering keeping the "Population" option low.
- "Speed Up Frame Rate" sleeping will require good performance at the default frame rate.
- Head to the "Display" options to tone down other features.

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

1 ★I was playin this game for years. LOVED IT. Now I got a LG K30 phone and now the game doesn't work. The action buttons aren't there and the movement controls are gone too. Please fix. I spent money and I might want to restore!
4 ★"No controls anywhere tried to download again and still nothing. Not even a game at this point, its a sad short video." I figured it out, it's just a controller setting. I'm enjoying the game thanks.
5 ★Its not a bad game but its not the best game.But I still like it. I'm not saying I hate it but i think you know what i mean so yeah...But this is my first time playing on of your games so..bye make more please if you can?😉
1 ★I need help, the game won't work. Whenever I go into a new room, items freak out in the upper left corner if the game, and there's no people, me, or controls on the screen. I tried forcing the game to stop, I tried restarting my phone, and I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I love this game, but I really can't play it.
5 ★Awesome game with so many things to do in prison. It's not about just being a good prisoner and serving your sentence there's so many things to do: do jobs for people to earn money, less jail time and respect, join gangs to rule the prison, escape, fight someone for money and have your lawyer reduce your sentence over the phone etc. However, loads of things could be improved: add the new foods, add bench presses, make a common area, allow you to start a conversation with someone, lose reputation if you're friends with a warden, if a warden's back is turned be able to commit at crime, grow fat and skinny and maybe change the prison layout and appearance. Hope this is read. Thank you.
5 ★Loved this game and did all sort of shenanigans , like hiding behind thebed to avoid punishment. Well that was like 2 years ago and i came back toenjoy it some more.
5 ★It's an amazing game it just needs more work done on it like more areas to discover and actually have the map finished other than that it's amazing oh I almost forgot u should when u leave prison and become a cop be able to arrest people like the npc's get todo to make it a bit fair😆
5 ★Is it possible to stay out of trouble and eventually get out of jail, instead of having to break out? I have tried, but I can never seem to stay out of trouble long enough to find out. Is it just me, or is the game designed so that you can't stay out of trouble?
5 ★This is one of my favorite games on Google play (alongside Popscene: Music industry sim) and it's sort of easy except I don't know how to pick people up when they are dying,but other then that,it's STILL one of my all time FAVORITES!
4 ★This was an amazing experience. How do you get a shovel? I looked everywhere for one. Also, I think when you die you should restart in your cell because it's aggravating to start over.
4 ★The game and all its features are great but I don't like one thing or I wish to put the criminals in jail when I become the Warden then I'll rate 5 stars.pleasw update this feature i am sure we will love it
5 ★Only down side is I never get to read the pop ups to say where my cell and stuff. It disappears to quick!! Sort this out please?!
