Rattlesnake Springs[]


Howdy, partner! It's well known in the old West that if you evade the hangman's noose, the local Sheriff sends you to Fort Rattlesnake. Rustled up alongside the lowest outlaws in the county, you decide to break out of this calaboose - be it by hook or by crook!

K.A.P.O.W Camp[]


Captured behind enemy lines, you and your squadron find yourself thrown in the notorious K.A.P.O.W. camp. not content with sitting out the rest of the war, you decide to comb your quiff and find a way out of this joint in true Hollywood-hearthrob style!

H.M.P Offshore[]


Nobody's feeling as out-at-sea as these cons do! Someone 'clever' decided this dilapidated drilling platform was the perfect place to lock away lawbreakers - and they were right. With nothing but a sea-view miles around, it's no wonder it has a zero percent escape record.

Fort Tundra[]


*Brrrrrrrr* - Quite the frosty reception! You find yourself packed off to the coldest corner of the Siberian tundra and forced to work in horrible conditions. Before long you find yourself yearning for warmer climates and a way back to civilization!

Area 17[]

You and the vultures overhead know what fate awaits once this train reaches the end of the line. If you plan to see another sunrise you'd better disembark by whatever means necessary.

H.M.S Orca[]


Prisoners are being shipped off in droves to a remote island far, far away from civilization. Not keen on being marooned, you'd much prefer to find a way off the boat before you stand about as much chance as a fish out of water.

Air Force Con[]


Fasten your seatbelts, cons! Only the most hardened of criminals get an entire plane during the escort phase. One thing's for sure though - it's a one-way-ticket, so you'd better act fast before landing.
