Navigating the level
To climb up the penitentiary, you must use the elevators or the escalators.
Escalators only go up.
Elevators go up and down, but need you to enter and exit them. They stop at all the floors.
Both methods of climbing are time-consuming. Choose your method of ascent wisely.
Catching the convict
You have 60 seconds to capture the convict. The timer is shown on the top center of the screen.
Move up the levels and climb up to capture the escaped convict.
The convict will run erratically around the level, but will usually try to ascend to get away from you.
Once you make contact with the convict, you’ve won the level.
Lives and hazards
You only have one defense against hazards and that is by jumping over them.
If you touch any of the hazards, you lose a life.
You have 3 lives in this game. Lose all 3 and you fail the level.
Your lives are shown on the top left corner of the screen.
Moving enemies just keep on coming. These include viruses and shopping carts.
To avoid them, you must often jump while you’re still a considerable distance away, depending on how far they are
Bonfires are stationary hazards. They do not approach you.
Win extra points by picking up the sacks of cash that the escaping convicts leave behind.
Each bag of money is worth 1,000 extra points.
The points you make carry over with each level.
The game is suited for players who like chasing platformer games.
The game does have a police officer with a gun, though it is a game of chase & he does not fire the weapon.
Other than the police officer carrying a gun the game has no adult themed content.
