About This Game

This is the Free-2-Play version of Dwarfs!? You can download the game and play the core game in Arcade mode, plus all the Tutorials and the Challenge modes completely free, forever. No charges, no subscriptions - just free. If you like those modes and want more, you can either pick the modes that you feel like playing and buy those individually - or just buy the whole pack to unlock everything.

Dwarfs!? offers an addictive, fast paced arcade-like experience, with plenty of difficulty levels and game modes to play, in the tradition of great games such as “Lemmings” and “Dwarf Fortress”. As the new overseer for your underground Dwarf base, your job is to manage the small colony and make it as rich as possible, before they meet their inevitable doom! To survive as long as possible, you’ll have to steer and guide your greedy little fellows to the richest points in the caves, while avoiding all the dangers – so they don’t end up destroying your Town Hall and its essential supply of beer. They explore for you, they mine for you and they fight for you - but if you don't keep an eye on them, they'll do what they do best: die for you and take everyone else with them. But, if all else fails when the Spider Queen comes for you – use the Outpost’s Dwarf Cannon and shoot Dwarfs at her!

There are only 3 certainties in this world: death, taxes and that Dwarfs always dig too deep!

Key features:

  • Fun for all ages and skill levels of gamers, with randomly-generated caves so the game is different every time.
  • Madly Addictive Arcade Mode: 4 difficulty levels ranging from casual to crazy hard-core, time limits from 5 minutes to endless, randomly-generated caves and all the gold and monsters you can handle!
  • Base Defense Mode: Tower Defense gameplay, except you don’t have a tower. And your Dwarfs dig the routes. Then you defend against waves of monsters!
  • Rush Mode: Can you handle Dwarfs spawning at insane rates and digging everywhere?
  • Dark Mode: This time, the only light is in the tunnels your Dwarfs dig. Spooky!
  • Campaign Challenges: Tutorials where you can learn all about being a Dwarf Overseer in a few minutes and Challenges where you can put those Overseer abilities to the ultimate test.
  • Leaderboards: Compare the size of your beard (and your scores) with your friends and the rest of the world.
  • Sandbox Mode: Create your own caves!
  • Codex: Alongside the integrated help system is the Codex – the fount of all Dwarf knowledge! Contains everything you need to know, including video tutorials for the budding Overseer.
  • Medals and Achievements: Lots and lots of shiny stuff to collect and show off to your friends!
  • Fully Integrated with Steamworks™
  • And Zombies. Not to mention goblins, skeletons, spiders, dark elves and more.

Really good strategy game, fairly difficult, and FREE!

Also, playing this game gets you an OP weapon in Killing Floor.

I got this game for the sole purpose of getting the Dwarves Axe achievement in Killing Floor. I was pleasantly surprised by this game...It's easy to understand, but difficult enough to keep you working! Fun and adorable graphics, and best of all: free!

Really good F2P game. Your role is to mole in deep mines, look for treasures, minerals, discover new caves. However, beware of hidden enemy minions like Lich or Spider Queen. Other threats on which you should pay attention are lava and water. They can very easily disturb your base, if you wont take some preventive action! Get rich and survive!

Great game, a lot of fun after a while and some of the hazards are really fun to counter!

However my fav feature is that you can earn the Dwarfs? Axe in Killing Floor, using it reminds me how much I enjoyed this game while slashing a Fleshpound head on.

7/10

There's a bug in the starting script, simple enough to fix, but it's been over a year and the devs haven't fixed it.

Other technical issues include not being able to change the resolution if the resolution is too big, and horrible sound quality.


Try the free version, but don't ever pay a dev that hasn't fixed a no start bug for over a year.
