The goal of the game is to try to escape from prison without getting caught.

When you play the game, you'll notice that the appearance of the characters looks more like an older computer game than something that is modern. The people and the items that are used are made of pixels, making everything look like it was put together with blocks. However, it is a fun game that is easy to grasp. After getting arrested and ending up in jail, you have to come up with a crafty plan to get yourself out. The method of getting out of jail is completely up to you, and you can use any tools at your disposal. However, you can't get caught.

One of the options is to start a riot as a way to create a diversion. When the guards are busy, you can sneak out the door. Another method is to dig a tunnel through the floor. There are numerous ways to get out of the jail, but you do have to plan ahead as the guards are usually monitoring everything that you do inside your cell. Some of the items that you find can be used in combination with the other tools that you have. The menu for creating the tools to get out of jail is simple with a box that contains all of your items. One of the ways to avoid confusion is to make sure you attend the roll calls and be on your best behavior when the guards are looking in your direction.
