Life inside a jail is worse than a bird caged. At least, we’re affectionate towards the bird and once in a while, the bird gets to fly and see the daylight as well. It’s absolutely wrong to cage the birds but getting jailed is even worse than that. Of course, you’re being served for your own crimes and it’s nobody’s fault that the last days of your life will be spent rotting at such a place. But then everybody dreams of a fresh start. Whether or not they’re allowed to pursue it is another question. But as per the situation that we have right now, there are four prisoners and they’re desperate to get out of the jail. They’re part of a gang called The One Arm Bandits and it’s not just a figure of speech but literally true. Yes, all the four members of the gang have just one arm. So how’re they coming out?

pac1I am talking about the latest iOS app called P.A.C.O. (Prisoner Action Climbing Obstacles) that has been developed by Trompo Games. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.1 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


P.A.C.O. is a very interesting and I must say challenging task at hand. You have to get out all the four prisoners out of the jail and it’s one of their dealers on the outside that is making all the arrangements for the plan to go on the floor or I should say the ceiling. He has arranged some ladders climbing which the prisoners will come out from the top of the roof. But there are two prisoners simultaneously climbing and you’re responsible for both of them. It’s all about timing in here! If you tap just one micro second before or after, you’ll lose the game and that’s why I said this game is a great challenge. Just adding to your worry, you have to avoid the guard as well.


The gameplay as I described is challenging but purely addictive. You might die tens or hundreds of times but you’ll still have the same enthusiasm and energy to climb the ladder and a hope that this time you’ll do better than your last best. You can just not get bored of this one! Moreover, the graphics of the game are very appealing and I would say smart. All the four leads have been designed very intelligently just like a smartly worded verse of a song. Moreover, that one-arm concept is another striking feature that I really liked about the story.

So summing up, I would say that P.A.C.O. is an amazing game that you must try at least once. It’s available for free in the App Store and therefore you’re getting it all for nothing. So when you’ve nothing to lose, you obviously have something to gain!

Pros: challenging and addictive gameplay; stylish graphics; smart characterization; free.

Cons: none.
