Play OverviewPlay Overview

Cuffbust is an online action game where you work together to escape a prison full of aliens. You use items you find to create escapes and passages, distract, entrap, and defeat guards to get to freedom. It stands out for the variety of ways to escape, where plans easily spiral into spectacular comedic disaster.

You play an incarcerated alien who, when the prison security goes down, attempts to escape. Play involves working with up to nineteen other players to evade the guards, make it past security, and get out. You can talk to nearby players to formulate a plan and agree on how to work together. You start off with nothing but quickly find different items you can use to your advantage. Spoons can dig tunnels through the walls, soap can make guards slip, and explosives can get you access to the sewers by blowing up the toilets.

In addition to the items you find, you can interact with the prison machinery to gain an advantage. By checking the security cameras, you can figure out where the security guards are, and by cutting the power, you can disable anti-aircraft guns to enable an escape by air.

The result is a game where, as satisfying as pulling off a flawless escape is, it's often when things go wrong that the game truly shines. Trying to adapt your plan on the fly when it goes wrong, or just watching it hilariously fall apart is great fun, made even more so by sharing it with friends.
