In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with the mobile version, and I do like some of the features in it, but overall I prefer the console version. Having never played the PC version, and not getting into the Escape Mode debate (it's not in the mobile version), the console version is just a much more comfortable gameplay experience. Plus, whether through paid DLC or the Community Update, the console version has enough differences from the other versions that it should be considered a separate game. In fact, the very title, "Prison Architect: PlayStation 4 Edition" (or Xbox, etc) implies it should be considered separate to the other versions.
So yeah. One version has Escape Mode, one version is portable, and one version has extra features through DLC and updates. Three separate games. And nowhere on the PS4 case does it mention Escape Mode.
Okay I'm done. Rant over.
