Description

Jail break in progress! A slew of convicts have escaped from prison, and its your job to round them all up and return them to jail as fast as you can. Along with your trusty deputy, you navigate each of the 28 challenging levels, grabbing power-ups, avoiding treacherous terrain, and dodging speeding cars while you track down prisoners around the world. Chase felons through training grounds, forest mazes, rocky deserts, grassy suburbs, interstates with heavy traffic, island scenes, and mountain terrain.

Jail Trail is a unique 2-D top-down action game specifically designed for easy control on cell phones. Loosely based on the extremely popular "Snake" cell phone game, the lead cop and his deputy constantly moving, and you use the the arrow buttons to turn head of the "trail" or "chain", tracking down the fleeing convicts. When you catch up to an escaped felon running from the cops, he is cuffed and attached to the end of the chain. All deputies and convicts attached to the chain will follow the lead cop, and you have to make sure you don't run into any of the varied obstacles or any of the felons in the chain itself. If you hit an obstacle or the chain, you'll be stunned for a few seconds and some of the convicts will escape and you'll have to track them down again.

There are different types of convicts, each with their own unique abilities and AI, and the game includes many power-ups such as "Freeze All", "Invincibility", "Stun Gun", and even bonus point "Donuts". You can unlock new levels as you advance through the game and can start a new game from any unlocked level, so you don't need to start from the beginning every time. The game also saves high scores, best times for each level, unlocked levels, and one saved game.
