The Escapists is a top-down, puzzle strategy game with 16-bit style graphics. Players assume the role of a prisoner trying to escape confinement. Each of the six levels are represented as prisons, which progressively become more difficult to escape. Player can buy or steal items from other prisoners to help in their escape, as well as perform side-missions in the form of “favors” for NPC characters.
The Escapists received generally positive reviews with an average score of 73%, praised for its challenge, puzzles, and overall fun, though criticized by some for its learning curve, and redundant “favors” as side-missions.
If using a guide, the Platinum is not particularly difficult, nor overly time consuming. Most of the work is in the beginning, figuring out what you need to do. Once you have a good grasp of the game, it’s fairly easy going. No online trophies to worry about, and nothing is missable due to the prison select.
Expect around 20 hours for the Platinum, give or take a few hours.
The first prison is naturally the easiest, so if you wish to avoid a lot of mopping up later, try to unlock a good chunk of the miscellaneous trophies as you can. Be sure to check out The Escapists trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details.
Specifically, you’ll want to complete as many favors as possible to work towards the Favor Fave trophy, though keep in mind that certain favors can have certain repercussions. Working towards that trophy will in turn help you get closer towards unlocking the Cash Is King trophy for earning over $1,000, as well as the Disrespect My Authority trophy and Punch Drunk trophy for knocking out 50 guards and 50 inmates respectively.
After the first prison, continue playing through the remaining five prisons, working towards and unlocking the remaining miscellaneous trophies along the way. Remember that the prisons get more difficult as you progress, so try to unlock everything as early as possible.
Once you’ve completed all six prisons, you can use the prison select to backtrack and mop up any trophies you may still be missing. Again, check out The Escapists trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need, and their requirements.
