In Rambo - Prison Break you are playing John.

He gets support by a friend via phone who is teleporting items into Johns inventory.

The ordinary proximity mine ...

the automatic anti-personnel turret with 4 bullets ...

and a programmable biobot v0.1 ...

are those items available to John to escape from prison.

He has only got 5 minutes ...

or his friend will no longer be waiting for him outside.

Will he make it?


Watch the cops. Some are following a path, some are not. Some will run after you, some won't.

Inventory (hold down Z/C)

Thanks to connorses for the portrait of the hacker/geek/guy on the phone. I've made some small alterations.

Biobot programming: hold down arrow key(s) and select with Z/C

If you ever manage to escape, take a screenshot and post it below!

Have fun!


PS: I'm not a Rambo fan but there are some aspects in Rambo 1 that were interesting.

Very impressive, it feels really fleshed out and complete. Took me a couple of minutes before I figured out how to escape from the first cell but after that everything was smooth sailing. I really like how many ways one could go about escaping and how creative you can get with the tools (especially the biobots).

Edit: Managed to cut it down to 2 mines, 2 doors and 2 cops.

Thanks! Yes, you're right, there are many possibilities. I started this game with just the inventory selection menu to try some different approaches (instead of going up/down or left/right in a list with additional keys). I had no idea where the game would go at that point - it grew while I was coding and testing. As a result, the code is inefficient (in terms of code re-use). The level could be bigger, and the artwork .... hides

I think I will do another one of this kind with a proper "engine" soon ... if an artist is willing to work with me, that would be awesome.

Oh wow, 2 mines, 2 doors and 2 cops ... have to try that! Maybe I should put in more cops then ;)

This is great!

Awwr, I either exploded myself or an exploded cop just arrested me. I'm not sure which.

@JTE It can only be the latter ... Sorry about that :)

This is one of the most cohesive story games I've played. Great job! Does the police car always make you explode at the end? I tried programming a bio-bot to get in the way, but so far it just goes off the end of the screen. Also, I think the artwork is very cute and super-effective. The cops with their hats are particularly adorable.

Thank you! Hehe, nice idea with the biobot but the sequence is hardcoded :)
I got bored with level design so I decided to end the story right there. There's enough space left for 3 (or 7 if heavy title image removed) more levels, but ...

P#18830 2016-02-14 07:13 ( Edited 2016-02-14 12:13)

Well done! I enjoyed this quite a bit, once I figured out what was going on. :)

P#18842 2016-02-15 13:32 ( Edited 2016-02-15 18:32)

This is enormously fun. I love the feel of it. Well done indeed.

P#18854 2016-02-16 23:48 ( Edited 2016-02-17 04:48)

I really like this. Not quite managed to do it yet (keep getting scuppered), but I'll get there eventually.

I also made a little video about it here: https://youtu.be/qoCZwZtpIEU

did 222. Neat game, Speedrunning categories such as any%, low% (222), and all phones would be pretty interesting to do.
