About This Game

CastleMiner Z is an online coop survival horror game in a block based environment. Travel with your friends in a huge, ever-changing world and craft modern weapons to defend yourself from dragons and the zombie horde!

Game Play

CastleMiner Z is an infinite world filled with deep places to explore, and horrifying monsters to slay. Build structures out of blocks, craft weapons and tools from raw materials, and explore the vast and frightening world around you.

Play by yourself or online with friends in any of these exciting game modes:

  • Endurance Mode: There are tales of a place beyond the mountains where Hell itself has torn through. How far can you get before you succumb to the zombies, dragons, skeletons, or other enemies that thirst for your blood? Run, fight, and sneak your way across dry deserts, snowy mountains, and icy expanses on your quest to vanquish the ultimate guardians of the abyss. In Endurance Mode, the world is randomized each game and the death of your party is permanent.
  • Survival Mode: If you enjoy Endurance, but would rather build permanent structures and defenses, Survival Mode is where you’ll spend your time.
  • Creative Mode: With simplified crafting and the ability to adjust or eliminate the enemy threat, Creative Mode is a great place to build vast structures in peace.
  • Dragon Survival Mode: For those who like their trophies big and their hair singed and smoking, Dragon Survival Mode brings you up close and personal with wave after wave of the biggest, meanest, scaliest brutes in the game.

Worlds can be saved in any game mode (except endurance) so try building a castle with enemies turned off, then grabbing some friends and loading it up with enemies turned on!

I would rather drag my testicles though 70 miles of broken glass and rusty nails than play this game for another 15 minutes.

I am shocked that they still charge money for this game, it could be made much better, but it seems the developers have abandoned the game, yet another steam disaster story. Do not waste money on this "game" I only got it since it was in a bundle (that actually had some decent games in it)

This seriously is a mod for Minecraft that adds guns and different textures and animations.
Diamonds are so easy to find it's actually funny, and even the best resource, bloodstone, is super-easy to obtain.
In the aspect of building, this game has next to no blocks and the best thing you can make is some blocky, symmetrical castle that gets instantly destroyed by dragons that spawn every femtosecond.
The enemies take a lot to kill, run faster than you, and kill you in 2 hits on the easiest difficulty.
It gives the option to teleport to the surface, to another player, or to spawn. This is an awful idea since it takes the factor of exploration plus finding your way back away. Most of the fun in Minecraft was getting lost in a huge cave and spending an hour finding your way back out. In this game, it's as simple as going to the menu and clicking "Teleport"
For the money it costed to buy this game, (Luckily I was gifted it...) save it and go buy Terraria or Minecraft. Same games, only better than this.

This game is a disgusting creation. It's like the developers sat down, after taking the entire basis of Minecraft into consideration, and then thought; "how can we make this game terrible?"

Thus, creating CastleMiner Z.

Excuse me while I go throw up.

First off, I'd just like to say you know a game is bad when it somehow manages to screw up the classic Adjective Noun title format. Here we have NounNoun- and there's not even a space between the two words! It also suffers from "title is non-indicative of game content, better tack on a Z to show it has zombies."

As for the game itself? It's utter garbage. I can appreciate that it still took them time to make, but to go and sell this for $5 is a horrible error in judgement, and should be observed as such. "Oh but Law, you haven't even played it for more than an hour!" You're damn right I didn't. I played it for 8 minutes I think, and it's no hyperbole when I say that's all it took to see all the game had to offer. To be fair, 5 of those 8 minutes I spent in the pause menu, because I got up to make a sandwich.

0/10 It wasn't even a good sandwich and I had to make a deal with the Devil to get my 8 minutes back.

While playing this game I came to the realization that there are men on this earth cold enough to create something like this and charge people money for it that they could have used to buy a starving orphan a meal with.

If you like Minecraft, this game is for you.

The resembalances are errie. Looks almost exactly the same as Minecraft, if you have a high texture mod installed. Cool thing though, I managed to kill a dragon with a pistol. That thing was kind of ominous until I remember I was just messing around on creative.

Either way, not my kind of game.

I really don't get this game. There just isn't much to do. Sure you can play with others, but there still isn't anything going on. It's boring. I really tried to give it a chance, but again, there is nothing there to hold my attention.
