Quirky App Of The Day: Bust Out Of Prison With Handmade Tools In Jail Break Now
Jail Break Now (Free) by xiao he is a reflex game that will test your limits with timers and attempt restrictions. You only have 14 days to complete your list of tasks. Every time you get caught, your progress is pushed back a day. You also have a timer that runs while you’re trying to complete your various tasks. The pressure is definitely on to get things done.
You are an innocent man who is wrongfully imprisoned. Sure. I’ve heard that argument a lot. Regardless, you have 14 days to break out of jail. After two weeks, you’ll be moved to a different facility. This is your only chance to free yourself.
Being the smart inmate that you are, you’ve compiled a list of things that you need to do in order to bust out of that joint. All you have to do is hold your finger on the screen to work on each task. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
Well, the problem is that an officer keeps coming to check on you. You obviously can’t be drilling a hole in the wall while he’s watching you. That’s frowned upon in generally accepted prison etiquette. You only do your dirty work when your jailers aren’t looking.
If you happen to push your luck and get caught, you have to start that task over again. Luckily, you don’t have to start back at the beginning of the list. It also knocks a day off of your two week limit.
There was a unique problem that I ran into when I tried to find the app in the store. I found the same game with three different names, all by the same developer. So, if you download Jail Break Now, but the title says Escape Now, don’t fret. It’s the same game. One version (Escape Now !!!) is $1.99, but that’s because it’s ad-free. Personally, I think the developer released different versions of the same game to get more money from advertisements, but that’s just my opinion.
Despite the confusion with the different titles in the App Store, I still enjoyed this game. It’s a great reflex game. As long as you follow the link below, you’ll find the free version of the game.
