Developer Candywriter has released an awesome new mini-game in BitLife that challenges you to cause a full on prison riot. Curiously enough, it actually plays exactly like the classic mobile game Snake, with you having to create a chain of prisoners while avoiding prison guards and walls.

In this guide, we’re going to detail exactly how the mini-game works and give you a bunch of tips and tricks that should help you beat it every single time.

BitLife Prison Riot Mini-Game – How it Works:

First things first: here’s how to actually start a prison riot. You can do this once per year in BitLife, and you’ll find it in the menu along with all of the other new prison activities. Simply hit ‘Riot’ to start the mini-game.

Your goal is to get a certain number of prisoners to riot along with you, and it plays almost exactly like the classic mobile game Snake. You start with just yourself as a floating head and you’ll move automatically in a certain direction as soon as you’ve picked one using the virtual controls.

You can then use these controls to change direction as you play, with your goal to bump into the other floating heads dotted around the arena. This starts off easy, with just you and another floating head to contend with. The more you collect though, the more difficult it becomes.

Prison guards will start to pop up, and if you touch these it’s game over. The same goes for hitting a wall: that’s a big no-no. If you manage to get 10 prisoners together, you’ll win the mini-game.

BitLife Prison Riot Mini-Game Tips and Tricks:

Now that you understand the basics, here’s a few tips and tricks to help you master the mini-game:

  • Collect the heads: This is the goal of the mini-game, so you should always focus on collecting the floating heads at all times. Don’t mess about.
  • Plan ahead: The direction you collect a head from matters. Plan to collect it so that you’re facing the easiest direction afterwards – that way you’ll minimise mistakes.
  • Avoid guards: Touch a guard and it’s game over, so we strongly recommend staying away from them at all costs. The best advice we can give is to take the long way around, rather than precariously navigate yourself through a series of guards.
  • Don’t go near the wall: You move at quite some pace, so we’d recommend staying away from anything that could end your life. The wall is treacherous in BitLife, so we recommend staying away from it as much as possible.
