Game Description

Take the Ultimate Prison Sandbox Anywhere! Bust out anywhere, with anyone on the Nintendo Switch. Team up with another inmate for local two player split screen mode, taking a Joy-Con each to either team up to break out, or work against one another to determine who's the quickest convict to make an escape.

Risk it all to breakout from the toughest prisons in the world. Explore the biggest prisons yet, with multiple floors, roofs, vents and underground tunnels. You'll have to live by the prison rules, attending roll call, doing prison jobs and following strict routines; all the while secretly engineering your bid for freedom! Your prison escape antics will take you from the frosty Fort Tundra, to a train hurtling through the desert, and even to the final frontier!

The Escapists 2 Review via Expansive

The Escapists 2 is feature rich and runs a treat on Nintendo Switch

Review: The Escapists 2 (Nintendo Switch) via Digitally Downloaded

Ultimately, The Escapists was such a success because it was fun, entertaining, and smart. You could perhaps argue that the sequel doesn't do enough to build on the foundations of the first, but that's only if you don't use the multiplayer options. Those alone breathe fresh air into the whole experience, and, as I said at the start, the Nintendo Switch hardware itself is just perfect for Mouldy Toof's endlessly entertaining vision.

With it's sandbox style approach to escaping at time you might find yourself flapping in the wind and unsure what to do next. The pacing of the game has been improved since the first one too much less waiting around. The 16bit style of of graphics have also been improved the game overall looks and plays great.

Review: The Escapists 2 (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

The Escapists 2 is an ingenious, multi-layered clockwork sandbox that offers you a wide range of routes to freedom. Its tough demands and myriad competing systems can lead to frustration, but a winning sense of humour and knock-about fun always brings you back for another jailbreak attempt.

A great sequel that refines and improves the original prison break format with more variety, better graphics, and some fun multiplayer.

Been on my wishlist forever. My brother was super into the first game for awhile, streaming it on occasion, and I just keep putting off picking this one up.
