Well you see, things aren't exactly what they seem with Two-a-day. I mean he actually does that kind of shit you've known him to, hustles hot software to the caspers in Barrytown, but his main shot, I mean the man's real ambitions, you understand, lie elsewhere... 'Count Zero' - William Gibson

Google Play. Prison Life RPG. How do I ....

Here's my hints on how to play this fun game. It's kept me amused for weeks.
Game Version 1.3.5, May 2015.


This is the Google Play link


I've been looking for game that involves fun character development and this is it.
There's a lot of well thought out game play here.
This is a great game. Take the time to learn how it works.

Choose your prisoner carefully and check the long term goal - make sure you achieve it to unlock other prisoners.
Choose Rich and high Agility to help survive.
Choose Basketball, Body building, Socail or Chess to join a gang straight away and do join a gang.
Be careful where you sit at lunch - sit with your own gang or with the gang-less prisoners.

** Game saves at night sleep so you can go back to your last save if you mess up in the day.

My first priority if to join a gang if I have the Skill. Otherwise...

My second priority is always to gain 40 Snitch to protect my prisoner from bully and extort, and to obtain free Gossips. This becomes the first priority if the prisoner is weak in all aspects.
I always work in the first job as much as possible early in the game to earn Gossips and to gain the Cockroach Pet.

My third priority is to learn Steal. Idle to obtain a Coin to help learn Steal.
Once I have Steal, I steal hamburgers and use instead of sleep to practice skills in my cell at night.
I then Steal all the items I need to learn all the Skills - mirrors, meat, hamburger, nail, origami, and so on.
To gain money, I always Cheat rather than Gamble, as Cheat gains a benefit from Agility and Intelligence and any Friend. Gamble just relies on luck.

Next priority is to learn all the Skills. I don't rush to gain promotion in the gang until later.
** Make friends with and learn skills from the Heart breakers gang for preference - it makes it quicker to take over their gang later if you are friends with them all.
Learn Basketball to give +6 survival in the showers.
Learn Joker to obtain free Jokes - useful if you sit at a gang table at lunch by mistake.
Develop Social and similar skills to make friends and influence people.

** Also Recruit the first few people you learn skills from if your escape plans allow. They will assist you with Bully and Steal and so on. If you are going to tunnel from your cell, befriend your cell mates.

Next I usually try to make 30 phone calls. I bribe Mr Slave to allow 4 calls a day. This gives me Stealth and extra Agility from the pet cat.
This can also give me a vital cash flow or hamburger supply from Grandma, Wife or Gangster.

I learn Architect and work in the Warden's Office to earn the Ladybug Pet for +2 Luck.
Architect is better than Banker because it requires one less Intelligence and is useful in your escape.
I  steal two sleeping pills from the Warden to aid my escape later.

Then I start to Steal to earn money, and maybe buy the Lucky 8 Ball to help Steal.

Work to gain the pets. Work in the kitchen to steal knives. Work in the guard room to steal pills.

Always take the Bribe Boxer Two jobs to earn easy money. Bet on Boxer One of course !
Keep a supply of drugged coffee handy.

Next I usually try to advance in my gang as well as steal or buy the items to gain the upgrades from the mad doctor in the medical lab.
* Charisma needs 6 rotten foods and 2 combs.
* Agility needs 4 bread and 4 toothbrush - easy to buy them. Do this early in the game.
* Strength needs 6 nails and 2 spoons.
* Luck needs 4 weather reports from watching TV and 4 mirrors.
* Intelligence needs 6 needles and 2 candles - you can steal needles from the Medical Lab.

Next, I take over my gang then all the other gangs if I feel the need.

Oh, make sure you complete your Personal Goal.


Hungry Monk is probably the hardest.
Work every morning so that you are not bullied or extorted.
Make friends every afternoon so that you are not bullied or extorted. I friend Teabag as he will join as an escape recruit straight away. You need the +5 friend bonus to help kill Minsc.
Save to buy a knife or the most expensive weapon you can buy.
On you second last day, kill Minsc to gain his rat to save you from execution. Hope to meet him in the shower for a safer kill. You stand a good chance to kill Minsc if you have a knife and a friend.
Then proceed as per low intelligence below.

Pip-boy is also tricky, but an easy prisoner to play.
You have to forge keys or lock pick twice to escape, so plan carefully. If you stay in a ground cell, friend both your cell mates.
I prefer to go to the roof top cell after bribing Shane. Then I rope down to the kitchen to pick the first lock, then to the laundry to pick the second lock, then any route to the car which I also use lock pick on, so that's three chances at lock-pick to complete my goal.

Ranbow is also tricky. Read the personal quest properly.
You have to kill the Warden. So tunnel and pick the escape route to the front gate that involves killing the Warden.

For all other characters that have low intelligence or charisma, I have a fail-safe routine.
Work every morning to gain gossips to gain 40 Snitch. Social every afternoon to gain friends.
Do NOT let yourself be interrupted by bully or extort, even if it means leaving a friend at 99%. Just chat to yet another prisoner for a full afternoon until you have 40 Snitch to protect you.
If you have a nightmare, just exit and reload the game to keep happiness your up.
Slowly gain Steal, then Social, then Gamble, and go from there.

1. Join a gang.

If you make enemies from Snitch, it's best if you be social to them the next morning to avoid too many enemies, that goes for irate gangs too. It's best to snitch on the guards.

* Prison Life RPG. How do I win at Gambling or Cheat ?
Make sure you have the Gamble, Chess and Banker skills, as well as the Lady Bug pet from working in the Warden's Office, and either the Lucky Eight Ball purchased from the Gold Coin gang shop, and the Luck buff from the mad doctor.
You can also Cheat at Gambling by having the Gamble, Chess and Steal skills. Cheat is a lot easier.
