Jailbreak (Roblox) Review
Posted: 16 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
In Roblox Jailbreak the goal depends on your team. Prisoners must break out and become a successful criminal through robbing stores, bank or museum heists. Police try to keep prisoners in jail by arresting them, foiling robberies and car chases. There is a criminal base where players can pick up weapons and get changed from their Prison Jumpsuit.
Like any popular Roblox game, Jailbreak has been frequently updated to add features like trains, spike traps, customisable cars, museums, new types of robberies and cargo planes. This has created a huge world to explore and discover.
What looks like a simple game actually offers a surprisingly in-depth experience, both in terms of strategies for escaping prison, committing crimes, earning money as well as policing other players and sending them back to jail.
Players: You can play this with 30 players online. Numbers of players vary depending on the server.
Additional in-game purchases are offered for items that enhance the experience. Some of these purchases (known as 'loot boxes') are for a chance of getting rare/higher-value items although common/lower-value items are more frequent.
You need to purchase a Xbox Live Gold subscription to play online with Xbox One. You can purchase vehicles, weapons and skins in the game with Cash. Cash is earned in the game by performing a variety of actions, depending on whether you are Police or Prisoners. You can purchase Cash with Robux.
To purchase one of the most expensive vehicles in the game, the Black Hawk Helicopter costs 1,000,000 in Jailbreak cash. Although you could spend a long time earning this cash, to buy this much cash costs 12,000 Robux which would cost about £110 of real money to purchase.
You can also purchases passes that give special items and access:
- SWAT or BOSS (300 Robux) provides some protective equipment and guns.
- VIP (1000 Robux) gain 20% more cash for achievements, cosmetic enhancements and $1,000 income every 24 hours
- Car Stereo (250 Robux) play any audio on car stereo and save playlists.
- Bigger Duffel Bag (300 Robux) can carry more loot from robberies.
- Mobile Garage (450 Robux) customise vehicles anywhere.
- Rocket Fuel (99 Robux) 250 worth of fuel to make vehicles faster and fly off ramps.
Safes: Safes work like “loot boxes” in the game. You can purchase Safes with the in-game currency. When you open these you get a chance of getting a random skin for vehicles.
Skill Rating8-11 year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. More traditional gaming skills are required in Jailbreak compared to simpler Roblox games.
