Roblox is, at the moment, one of the main game development platforms. The platform has more than 40 million games, mostly developed by users of the same platform. It is a breeding ground for aspiring developers.
As a result, the platform features a plethora of titles ranging from eccentric puzzlers to fun rip-offs of popular titles. Even if you’re not on Halloween, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy good horror games at other times of the year.
Top 14 horror games from Roblox
Horror games have been an extensive genre in the world of video games, and it is not surprising that on this platform you can find dozens of games belonging to this world. Some are Roblox versions of various popular titles, but each one is more fun than the last.
This is an obvious mention in this list. This game bears a striking similarity to the recently released ghost hunting game, Phasmophobia, a video game that has already become a huge phenomenon and has even dominated Twitch for a while.
Paranormica also involves investigating paranormal incidents with 4 teammates. It gets pretty fun and really creepy.
This is basically a survival horror game with investigation elements. Although it features the brick-based graphics of Roblox, this one can be quite scary. If scares are your thing, this is the game for you.
This is generally considered the scariest game on the platform. It’s basically a story-driven horror game that you can play alone or with two teammates. No spoilers will be made for what this game has in store for you, but trust when we tell you that it hasn’t earned the title of the scariest game on the platform for nothing.
A Wolf or Other
This great game from Otter Space is a version of the classic Murder Mystery game, but with a unique twist.
Players are randomly selected to be innocents, hunters, or werewolves. The job with the innocents is to try to stay alive, the hunter is armed with a crossbow and is tasked with taking down the werewolf. The werewolf’s goal is, of course, to kill everyone.
Zombie Attack, by Wenlocktoad vs Indra, is a zombie survival game in which teams of players have to fend off increasingly tougher hordes of zombies. As you progress, you can earn experience points and unlock new weapons to make the job of killing zombies a little easier.
There are different types of zombies to fight with different abilities and every now and then there will be a boss battle that presents a major challenge. As an interesting twist, if you get killed, you can respawn as one of the zombies, which makes it even more challenging for your teammates.
Project Lazarus: Zombies
This game from Logitech101 is clearly inspired by Call of Duty’s zombie mode and does a great job of creating an exciting game.
The premise is simple: A group of survivors needs to hold off waves of zombies and last as long as possible. As you kill zombies or repair barricades, you earn points that can be spent on better weapons or removing obstacles blocking the map.
As expected, the first few waves are fairly easy, but things soon get much harder and require teamwork to survive. Occasionally, a zombie will drop a power-up that will benefit the whole team and could provide additional ammo, instant kills at short notice, or other advantages.
Next, we will talk about Bear Alpha of Cheedaman. Before we start, we must warn you that if you decide to play it, you must take into account that it is in alpha phase and it is not complete.
Bear Alpha is a game for 10 players, one of them plays as Bear and the others play the role of survivors. Bear’s goal is to kill the survivors in 5 minutes and the survivors have to limit themselves to survive.
Bear moves a little faster than the survivors, which gives him a slight advantage, but the survivors have a limited amount of runs available to get them out of difficult situations.
The levels are very spooky and dimly lit. This, combined with the excellent soundtrack makes the game really eerie. Even if there wasn’t a killer bear chasing you, the environments themselves are enough to make your hair stand on end.
