    Craft, Steal, Brawl and ESCAPE!

    You’ve landed yourself in prison again, and your only chance is to engineer an escape by any means necessary. How you do it is up to you! Why not cause a prison riot? Or dig a tunnel right under the walls of the prison? Or even steal a guard uniform to blend in with your captors?

    The Escapists is a unique prison sandbox experience with lots of items to craft and combine in your daring quest for freedom. Life in prison will keep you on your toes with the strict rules that you’ll have to break. The guards are out to stop any escape attempts, so you’ll have to avoid suspicious behaviour by attending roll calls, working a prison job and hiding your stolen craftables.

    Escaping is what you do best, and you’ll have to prove your skills in a variety of challenging prisons from across the world, with new prison, Escape team included in the latest update. Locked in a military prison for crimes they did not commit, the 4 members of the Escape team must work out how to break free from an Escape proof military prison. Maybe the rumours that the compound houses the fiercest tank in history will help?

    Build and serve sundaes on the go with this brand-new version of Papa's Freezeria, with gameplay and controls reimagined for iPhone and iPod Touch!

    You've just started a relaxing summer job at an oceanfront ice cream shop, but things get hectic when all of Papa Louie's customers arrive on the island! You'll need to whip up delicious Freezer sundaes by pouring ice cream, adding mixables and syrups, blending sundaes, adding whipped cream and toppings, and don't forget the cherry on top for a perfect summertime treat!

    You'll need to multitask between each area of the restaurant, with new controls designed to work just right in the palm of your hand. Head to the Order Station to watch for customers waiting in the lobby. Switch to the Build Station to combine ice cream and mixables for each sundae. Jump to the Mix Station to mix sundaes until they're blended just right. Hop to the Top Station to pour whipped cream and toppings before serving the sundae to your picky customers. Each Station is a hands-on experience, where you'll need to drag, swipe, and tap your way through the sundae-building process.

    Keep your customers happy to earn points and level up. As your level rises, you'll unlock new toppings for the shop, and new customers will start to visit the Freezeria! A well-crafted sundae also earns you tips, which you can spend on upgrades and decorations for the lobby!

    ** NEW FOR PAPA'S FREEZERIA TO GO**

    Papa's Freezeria To Go is redesigned and reimagined for smaller screens, so your fingers won't get in the way of the action!

    CONTROL WITH YOUR THUMBS - You'll switch stations using buttons in the corners of the screen, perfect for your thumbs. You can also use buttons in the top corners to quickly switch Order Tickets, and you can view all of your Order Tickets in a zoomed-in mode for easy reading.

    BUILD STATION - We've completely redesigned the Build Station for smaller screens. The Pour Button and Bonus Meter are moved to the side and sized just right for your thumb, so you can watch the meter and tap at the right time without any fingers blocking your view. When it's time to choose a mixable or a syrup, the entire screen is filled with large buttons so you can easily tap the correct item.

    MIX STATION - We've fine-tuned the Mix Station upgrades to work even better on small touch screens. Once you purchase the Blend Alarm upgrades, you can drag these large alarms and snap them onto any blender. Booster Buttons are also large and easy to press, and you can even use multi-touch to boost multiple blenders at once!

    TOP STATION - The Topping Bin carousel from "Papa's Burgeria To Go!" is back, which lets you top sundaes in a brand-new way! Swipe the carousel of Topping Bins to choose the item you want to use, then grab the sundae cup to start pouring toppings evenly across the sundae. You can also tap a button to switch to placeable items like cherries and cookies. And with full multi-touch support, you can keep one finger sliding the bins and another tapping on the cup below, so you'll have those sundaes finished in no time!

    NEW INGREDIENTS - We've added a ton of new ingredients that can't be found in the classic or HD versions of the game, including mixables, syrups, whipped cream flavors, and other toppings that you'll unlock as you play the game. There's over 70 unique ingredients for you to discover!

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see! The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his two friends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowds! The robots' behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman.

    From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully. You have a very limited amount of electricity that you're allowed to use per night (corporate budget cuts, you know). That means when you run out of power for the night- no more security doors and no more lights! If something isn't right- namely if Freddybear or his friends aren't in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed!

    Can you survive five nights at Freddy's?

    "For all the simplicity of the game’s controls and premise, Five Nights at Freddy‘s is frightening. It’s a fantastic example of how cleverness in design and subtlety can be used to make an experience terrifying. Simple still images and proper character design steal the show in this game, and show that Scott Cawthon knows quite a lot about the secret fears people feel when looking at creepy dolls and toys. It’s elegant in how it sows fear, and is a must-own for anyone who likes scary games." -Joel Couture IndieGameMag.com

    -This game requires 512 megs of ram. Because of this, the game will not work on iPod gen 3 or 4 or other low-memory devices.

    Welcome back to the new and improved Freddy Fazbear's Pizza!

    In Five Nights at Freddy's 2, the old and aging animatronics are joined by a new cast of characters. They are kid-friendly, updated with the latest in facial recognition technology, tied into local criminal databases, and promise to put on a safe and entertaining show for kids and grown-ups alike!

    What could go wrong?

    As the new security guard working nights, your job is to monitor cameras and make sure nothing goes wrong after-hours. The previous guard has complained about the characters trying to get into the office (he has since been moved to day-shift). So to make your job easier, you've been provided with your very own empty Freddy Fazbear head, which should fool the animatronic characters into leaving you alone if they should accidentally enter your office.

    As always, Fazbear Entertainment is not responsible for death or dismemberment.

    Papa's Burgeria is now available to play on the go, with gameplay and controls reimagined for iPhone and iPod Touch. Grill, stack, and serve burgers in a brand-new way!

    You're left in charge of Papa Louie's famous Burgeria, where you'll learn to take orders, grill patties, add toppings, and serve burgers to all of your crazy customers. You need to multitask between each area of the restaurant, with new controls that feel just right in the palm of your hand: Head to the Order Station to keep an eye out for customers waiting in the lobby. Switch to the Grill Station to drag patties onto the grill and flip burgers to cook them evenly. Jump to the Build Station to carefully craft your sandwiches with toppings and sauces exactly how they ordered, and deliver the finished burger to earn points and tips!

    Each Station is a hands-on experience, where you'll need to drag, swipe, and tap your way through the burger-building process. With full multi-touch support, the process is more fun than ever before! Tap many burgers at once to flip them all on the grill, or keep one finger on the Build Station's bin slider for even better precision when building.

    Keep your customers happy to earn more points and level up. As your level rises, you'll unlock new toppings in the shop, and new customers will start visiting the Burgeria! Papa's Burgeria To Go also features unlockable toppings that aren't available in previous versions!

    **NEW FOR PAPA'S BURGERIA TO GO**

    Papa's Burgeria To Go is redesigned and reimagined for smaller screens, so your fingers won't get in the way of the action!

Use buttons in the top corners to switch Order Tickets without having to drag them back and forth. You can also view all of your Order Tickets in a zoomed-in mode for easy reading.

    GRILL STATION - We've made keeping track of your burgers easier than ever, with Timers stuck in each burger patty that you can read at a glance, showing the cooking time and how each side is cooked. You can also buy Alarms in the Shop to add onto each Timer, so you'll get an alert when it's time to flip or remove a burger. With multi-touch support, you can quickly flip and remove burgers by using multiple fingers. Try a triple-tap to flip three patties in a row!

    BUILD STATION - With a traditional drag-and-drop system, your finger would block your view, so we've completely changed the Build Station to work on smaller screens. You'll swipe a carousel of Topping Bins across the top of the screen, and slide it carefully to line up toppings with the burger below. Simply tap on the bottom of the screen to drop a topping from the bin above! You can also tap a button to swap your Topping Bins with Burger Bins, which hold all of the patties you've cooked on the grill. And with full multi-touch support, you can keep one finger sliding the bins and another tapping on the bottom of the screen, so stacking burgers is a breeze!
