Product Description

Wrestling Revolution's unique brand of violence finally ends up where it belongs - behind bars! Create your own inmate and attempt to survive in a prison where every sentence is a death sentence. Rub shoulders with up to 100 fellow inmates in a sprawling facility of 12 unique areas, each filled with fully interactive furniture and props. Plus a life beyond the gates populated by real civilians, with wardens enforcing dozens of different laws to keep you as far away from it as possible. "Reputation" is the only currency that matters in this world. Having one keeps you alive, but avoiding one keeps you sane. Which side of the fence will you fall on?

Upgrade to "VIP" to enjoy the full experience without ads - plus access to the editor that allows you to customize your character and every other!

(*Look out for tutorials within the actual game)
A = Attack
G = Grab / Throw
R = Run
P = Pick-Up / Drop
T = Taunt (interact with handheld props)

- Touch the clock to pause the game and bring up options to exit.
- Touch any speech bubble to speed through conversations.

- If you find your device struggles to display lots of characters, considering keeping the "Population" option low.
- "Speed Up Frame Rate" sleeping will require good performance at the default frame rate.
- Head to the "Display" options to tone down other features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard Time Review November 24, 2013
By Alfonso
Verified Purchase
When I first saw the game I saw the graphics weren't the best. But as I kept playing I saw the graphics didn't matter because I was having so much fun.

The controls are very easy to work with. You have an arrow pad to move, a pick up bottom, a taunt bottom, an attack button, a run bottom, and a grab button. Each button has its own uses but there are so many to name.

The object of the game is to escape prison/jail. It is not easy because when you play you
have many things to worry about. You get points for agility, strength, reputation, and for intellectualism for doing certain things. You also have to worry about your health if you don't eat or sleep enough and you have to worry about energy. If your energy bar runs out, your character gets a mind of its own until the energy bar goes up halfway. You also have many other inmates and jail guards. Some inmates will want to be friends but others will want to fight you right away. Jail guards will tell you what to do if they think you aren't doing the right thing and if you disobey them, you will get a beating from them.

You can also collect money from doing certain things in the prison/jail. You can collect money by doing things for inmates or you can fix things you find. You can also find money on the ground or earn money if you answer a telephone by a certain person. Inmates will want to fight you and they will place bets and it is your choice if you want to bet or not. Jail guards might also tell you if you give them a certain amount of money, they'll let you go. But guards will trick you sometimes just to get money.

Inmates will sometimes ask you if you want yo join their gang. You can either choose to accept or decline. If you are in a gang inmates will sometimes ask you if they can join your gang.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go behind bars and maybe have a Hard Time... November 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is an interesting simulation, a cross between The Sims and Backyard Wrestling. You go to Jail, do your time. But it isn't always that simple. You got to survive by any means. You can make your escape late at night, join a prison gang. Even get promoted to prison warden if you get in good with the law enforcers. A ton of depth to how you create your character and interact with the game world. Also there are a TON of options to adjust; anything from prison population levels to the color of your jail fatigues.

The only negative I can think of is permadeath. It's realistic, but you should be able to make characters to pull from if a current character dies. It can take upwards to 20 minutes to create the perfect character - only to have him killed by over-eager prison guards in the first five minutes of gametime. That kind of thing sucks the wind right outta your sails, in gaming terms. To have to go back in the character creator and re-do everything you just did everytime five guards decide to bully you to death (often just for the hell of it) is NOT FUN. Restart with your last made character would be a great feature, but until something like that surfaces...I can only offer a 4 out of 5 rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple, but excellent game. November 12, 2013
By Master

You could call this a prison simulator, but I say that loosely. You play as an inmate (whom of which you can give a name, age, and change their appearance to your preference) who has been charged with a petty crime. You are sent to Southtown correctional facility, where you must survive against abusive wardens, an unfair judicial system, and worst of all, other ruthless criminals.

The game uses a somewhat simple combat system. You have some RPG like stats:
Strength-How much damage you can give/take
Reputation-How well you are respected
Intelligence-General knowledge of things as well as how well you can fight
Agility- Running and climbing ability
Strength and agility can be gained by exercises. Intelligence can be gained through talking or fighting. Reputation can be gained by rule breaking and attacking others.

The game has a lot of different weapons you can use, including the ocassional gun. You have a health bar and a sanity meter. If you lose sanity, your character starts doing random things, which can come back to hurt you.

Your sentence will be extended if you are caught by a warden. They usually try to rough you up beforehand, so you can try to defend yourself and get away. If your crime is severe enough, the alarm is sounded and all of them go after you. Sentences can average around 70-80 days but can differ. Days are accelerated (each hour is a minute in real time) and are even more so when you sleep.

Like I stated before, the cops are corrupt. They often arrest you for doing pretty much nothing. Once, a cop told me that if I don't give him a hundred dollars, he would find something to arrest me for.

If you die in this game, you are done. That's it.

I always have to start over when they say I am freeloading, because I didnt buy the vip pass. Take that out of the game, or you will probably lose a lot people playing it.
