For me, one of the worst jobs in the world is that of a prison guard. You’re always surrounded by criminals and you have to deal with them every day. It’s a part of your job to monitor them when they don’t listen to you. Your life is always in danger as you never know when someone attacks you. Strategies are a part of their lifestyle; strategies about escaping the prison, strategies about taking revenge from a fellow prisoner, etc. So when they’re not against you, they’re busy fighting with other prisoners and it’s again your responsibility to sort it out. Of course, this job requires courage and you need to carry it on your sleeve. But why am I telling all this to you? Well, that’s because we have a vacancy for a prison guard and we’re recruiting people. So those willing to take the job, please raise your hands.


Prison Defense, the latest addition to the iOS games has been developed by hamza abdeen. The app is compatible with iPad only and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS.

Prison Defense is a game set-up right in the middle of a prison where you have some prisoners trying to escape and you have to stop them. A prisoner looking for his freedom is always dangerous and when you’re standing right in his way, you need to stay alert as well as equipped with the right weapons and these are the two pillars of your strategy in this game. But I must say, luck also plays a big role here. In each level, prisoners are locked inside cages but there’s more to it. While some cages have prisoners, there are others having weapons and sometimes even explosives. When you tap on the cage, it will reveal what’s inside. If it’s a prisoner, you need to stop him and if it’s a weapon, you need to place it according to your strategy. Explosives are the worst case where you’ll lose some of your life while the prisoners stay unaffected.


A lot depends upon the timing of what you open first: prisoner or weapon. If everything goes right, you’ll win the game and even a single mistake will let them cross the borders. The graphics are good and kind of dirty just like the atmosphere inside a prison. Animations are a little bit slow and can be better. But I really liked the different prisoners, police officers and so many unique weapons that the developer has added to the game. There’s a lot of variety to them.

So my conclusion for Prison Defense is that it’s a challenging game that demands some strategy and a little bit luck as well. You’ll certainly enjoy it on the big iPad screen!

The app is available for free in the App Store, though there are some options for in-app purchases as well.

Pros: rugged-theme graphics; lots of unique prisoners, police officers and weapons; 40 levels; free.

Cons: none.
