Are you ready to manage a prison and become a prison tycoon?

Take control of a prison and make money rehabilitating prisoners all over the world!

Start in a low security prison and work hard to turn your modest prison into a high security penitentiary that can hold even the most dangerous prisoners.

Manage the prison’s services, staff, and prisoner needs to avoid conflicts and riots: make the prison yard bigger, customize the admin office, equip your guards with the best security equipment. Every detail will make your prison better, even improving the cells’ ventilation systems. Make sure you invest your money wisely.


Monitor your prisoners’ mood carefully to prevent riots or escapes. Upgrade their cells and beds to make them more comfortable. Provide means of entertainment by supplying books, installing a basketball court, and phone booths. Improve the kitchen and meals, keep the prison clean, and upgrade the showers to offer good hygiene.


Your prison needs efficient employees. Hire and fire staff depending on your current needs and development strategy: cooks, doctors, builders, janitors, guards and admin staff. Each department covers the basic needs of your prison and you must manage each of the teams well to make it profitable.


Both staff and prisoners depend on your leadership and vision in developing the prison. Improve working conditions by upgrading the maintenance room, office, kitchen, infirmary, laundry room and guards’ room. Upgrade the cells, shower area, prison yard, dining hall and visiting room for your prisoners. Manage the electricity and water supply to make sure you never run short.


Improve your reputation by controlling brawls and fights. Keep your prisoners satisfied by intelligently managing their needs and provide the best security equipment for your guards. Watch the most dangerous prisoners and use solitary confinement when necessary.


Earn lots of money by rehabilitating prisoners! The government and society will thank you for it! Make your reputation grow to get offers to manage larger prisons.

If you like management and idle games, you will surely enjoy Prison Empire Tycoon! In this easy-to-play casual game, you will make strategic decisions to develop your prison and have profitable results. Start off with a small and modest prison, and work to improve it and unlock visible progress. Transform your modest prison into the best high security penitentiary in the world and become the best prison manager there is!

Won’t open now.

It’s a really good game, maybe a bit slow at the start but now after this update when I open the game it crashes and I can’t get into it. Apart from this, it’s a very good game, obviously a few bugs, but then again this game isn’t that old. A suggestion would be to maybe at least let the offline earnings be 2 hours, as one hour is really not enough for when you’re sleeping etc and only get one hours worth of money. Again, a really good game but it is a bit boring, as all the prisoners do the same thing, all the workers and each day is the same etc. Apart from that it’s amazing and i’d give it 5 stars apart from the crashing and those things I mentioned :). Also, some things are still in Spanish I think, when travelling to other prisons it says Cerrada instead of closed I think.

Buggy and getting annoying now!

I really liked this game but it has lots of bugs which really annoy me as they seem really simple to fix.
Upgrading cell furniture makes no difference on income even thought it says it should. If I open the game at the wrong time everyone goes for food but my cooks haven’t done anything or will return from the dining hall without serving anyone. Also the amount food prepared makes no logical sense with the number of prisoners eating, 4 meals can feed 12 people easily!? My kitchen currently provides +5 heath but once people are eating they have received +42 health!? One of the most annoying is that the prisoners beat the cooks to the dining room and then leave because there’s no food, the cooks then turn up with full food and feed the last couple of prisoners with all the others having already left hungry! And another one - on the second level with 48 prisoners, as they queue up for food (before the first even gets to the counter) the ones at the back are turned away because the queue is too long. Max staff, max food and max dining room upgrades and half my prisoners are turned away hungry! These are just a few...

Nice game but people will quickly loose interest if nothing makes sense, it all seems a bit random which is really frustrating for something which is supposed to be fairly simple and logical.

Super dodgy developer

I really enjoyed the game and thought I’d add a no ad feature, I don’t mind spending few quid on a game if it’s cool and I’m sticking to it for longer than few hours. I also added +1 hour guard and +50% profits do I’d make more out of limited time competition prisons. And that’s where the whole issue begun- once you add +50% profit, you lose ability to double income by watching an ad, I find this very misleading as there’s not a single word about the fact that after adding “accountant”, player loses very valuable option for 2x income... what’s the point of the “skip the ad” option then? I’m very disappointed and honestly feel like scummed now. I enjoyed the game and for a long time, this was one playable game, unfortunately, as always, it’s completely ruined by the never ending greed of developers and as always, I strongly believe that spending money on mobile games is always a con- no refunds and no any response from devs. If buying something on Steam, you have an option for refund, than on the mobile platform, devs are kinda free to do whatever they want. I’ll try to contact App Store support and see if there’s any chance for a refund, as this is clearly a day time robbery. My advice to anyone- enjoy the game and if you feel you fed up with the ads, just leave it there, as you’ll be disappointed after finding out that removing ads is nothing more than a con.
