The app implementation is very well done indeed. The game mechanics are splendid and bring the surroundings and the challenges alive. They make the escape from this jail almost realistic. The smooth animations and graphics in 2D ensure that you are part of the game. There are challenging traps along each step of your way. To keep you hooked, there are over 100 floors to phase through which have been spread across 13 different levels. The easy controls help you get familiar with the game and bring out the simplicity aspect. On the other hand, the challenging gameplay add to the addiction and frustration, keeping you glued for hours on end.

Thecontrols of the game are not only responsive but also simple and intuitive. Swiping to the left makes you jump and swiping to the right switches to phase mode. The game is fast paced and challenging both from the very first level to the end. To pump up your insulin level, there is a fabulous electronic kicking soundtrack by supermassive quasar in the background. It indeed does set the mood right, enthusing you with energy.
