Prison Architect: Mobile is a new simulation title for the iPad where you can build and manage your own maximum security prison from the ground up. You can design your own prision with cell blocks, inmate facilities and different amenities such as workout areas. The game even features the ability to build solitary confinement cells and an execution chamber. After you have designed your prison you will need to manage its day-to-day activities like paying your staff and keeping prisoner morale high.
