Jailbreak is a popular Roblox game about escaping prison and getting away with various crimes. Based on the popular Prison Life and Madcity Roblox games, but adds a large open world in which you could drive vehicles, earn weapons and rob various buildings. It's similar in style and ambition to Grand Theft Auto.

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.

You can access Roblox games without a subscription, although many families choose to pay for a subscription that grants access to features and Robux currency in the game without the risk of individual transactions. Outside the game, you can make larger purchases.

The subscription grants 450 Robux a month as well as discounts on buying more Robux and access to selling and trading items with other subscribed Roblox players. The games generally encourage the spending of Robux to progress as a proportion of the money spent goes to the person who creates the game. This game is free to play. 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.
