Features :

  • Immensely popular and well-known cult film license.
  • Stealth controls such as the ‘keyhole camera’ and ‘distractions’ to divert the guards’ attention.
  • A unique combination of different gameplay that mirrors the dynamic changes in the film - slow stealthy sections, and fast-paced adrenalin filled combat and chase sequences.
  • Multiple characters each with their own skill-set the player can apply; Hilts ‘the Cooler King’ (played by Steve McQueen) can pick locks, MacDonald ‘intelligence’ can speak German, Hendley ‘the scrounger’ can pick pockets, and so on.
  • A unique mix of vehicles the player can control (motorbikes, trucks etc..)
  • Specialist Enemy Units Types - ‘Ferrets’ are specialist anti-escape officers who search for suspicious behavior, ‘Goons’ are the guards charged with security in the camp…
  • ‘Distraction’ game feature - other prisoners will help you carry out your objectives by creating a wide variety of visually impressive in-game distractions.
  • Incapacitate guards and drag them into the shadows to avoid attention
