The One for 16-Bit Games (Mar, 1989)
The gameplay and feel are both identical to the ST version, but the addition of full-colour graphics throughout add an extra element of polish to the presentation.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Jun, 1989)
Identical in look, feel and play to the Atari version, with the added advantage of only one game disk. Although sound is adequate, the Amiga isn't given the chance to show off its musical prowess, save for a pleasant loading tune.
Amiga Computing (May, 1989)
Prison is a good blend of puzzles and occasional Kung-Fu fighting. Although not startlingly original, it is well done and fun to play.
The Games Machine (UK) (May, 1989)
Looks very similar to the ST, except that the colours are paler and the definition is a little different. The samples and music are of a better quality and add some atmosphere.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Apr, 1989)
Die atmosphärische Hintergrundmusik verleiht der Geschichte einen Hauch von Endzeitstimmung, ohne aufdringlich oder gar deprimierend melancholisch zu wirken. Prison ist ein altmodisches, solides in Szene gesetztes Action-Adventure, das Freunde dieses Genres genauso wie Neulinge zufriedenstellen dürfte.
Your Amiga (Jul, 1989)
Once you solve this type of game, there is no great desire ever to go back to it. I'd suggest that its long term appeal is somewhat limited.
Commodore User (Apr, 1989)
Some of the better touches in this game are marred by the gameplay. A little more thought would have raised it about the average. If maze games appeal to you (and they certainly don’t to me) this is quite a good one. The puzzles are largely a matter of trial and error rather than brain power and the whole thing could have been made a lot simpler if you’d been given a ball of string.
Amiga World (Oct, 1989)
With good graphics and game mechanics, swift play, and an involving (though silly) story line, Prison is worth looking into... and breaking out of.
