HMP-Irongate is one of the maps present in the main game. It is styled after Alcatraz, a famous prison from the 1950's.

The prison holds 17 prisoners (yourself included), has 10 Guards, has an electric fence around the prison, and in the computer edition all guards carry special one-hit-kill weapons called Stun Rods.

Every cell includes a camera at the back wall.

Much like the real Alcatraz, HMP-Irongate is located on an island, meaning the player will need to buy Balsa Wood to create a Raft in order to escape.
