Description

Prison Throw is a distance-record game where the player must launch his egg-shaped prisoner by means of catapult. The bucket of the catapult rocks left to right and once it reaches the desired direction, the player hits the "Space Bar" to bring up a power meter and press it again when it reaches the desired position.

Once launched, there are power-ups and obstacles that will either help or hinder the players chances. Power-ups consists of boxes of dynamite that will launch the prisoner higher as well as a spring. There is also a cell-phone bomb power-up that once it is obtained can be activated by hitting the "Space Bar" to launch a missile strike that will give the prisoner a much higher bounce. There is also money power-ups consisting of coins and moneybags scattered throughout the level.

The obstacles the prisoner will encounter are bushes that will slow them down and police officers that will instantly bring the prisoner to a stop. However, if a player has obtained enough money power-ups, it will be deducted and the prisoner will bounce off the officer.
