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.

My Review

I think all of the codigames and digital things games are good I have loads like hotel empire tycoon, idle theme park tycoon, idle supermarket tycoon and of course this one and more the only down side is that on most of the idle games the people are not wanting to spend money on it and only getting one hour offline earning instead of two on this very game which most people would agree that its makes it very boring waiting for the night and only getting a fraction of the money that you were offline for this is just a suggestion and I dont want codigames to sue digital things because of that one petty similaritie another little bug fixer is where you could make it so you dont have to shut down the game completely to get offline earning and you can go onto another game knowing you won't wait an hour and go back on and it not registering how long you waited and just resuming from where you left it but except for that your game is very fun and i cant wait for your next idle game.

They are now digging!

Listen I just thought what if prisoners can escape in an ear tin way so here’s the thing you can obviously can tell what escape I’m talking about so prisoners will gather thing in the map by secret and the thing is when you add the update there will be cearting places like an shed and all that stuff and prisoners also can be caught by a guard or can be caught by you if you tap them a guard will go chase them and if a guard gets suspicion that a prisoner is gone they do the camera and also you may see a criminal using a basket ball an stuff for a fake head when they are gonna escape and if they find out a guard will hit an alarm and 3 guards will go out with dogs and now what I just thought of is them places where they keep dogs and will cost in the next prison by the start and what the dogs do is increases the chances of getting the prisoners and you can get more dogs more better food for better energy and good little dog houses for better good nights sleep and there’s a energy bar that increases how far they will go and better foods oh and also better water 💧 and that will increase the chances of them finding them and also this is where the guard room umm items like walk-in talkies and all will also increase the chances of them finding them and also you can hire detectives fir even better chances

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.
