About This Game

'Dwarfs!?' offers an addictive, fast paced arcade-like experience, with plenty of difficulties and game modes to play around in!

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

  • 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!

It's like Dungeon Keeper but only a lot crappier.

This is a really good game with a fun gameplay. A lot of the modes are fun and provide new challenges. Checl the accelerated mode, which is my favourite and a very nervous moment of fun :)

Dwarfs!? is a top down casual strategy game where you loosely control dwarves as they tunnel for riches. I played this game for about 2 hours and put it down as I was not particularly compelled to continue. The game isn't terrible; there are certainly far worse out there but the gameplay is just "OK" to the point where it's not worth playing in my opinion. There are several gamemodes but the main gamemode is called "Arcade Mode" where you essentially go as long as you can for a high score. This game would be good as a tablet/phone game that I would play on the subway but as a PC game I need more of a reason to play this. Priced at $10, this game is far too expensive for what you get.

Score: 5/10

Variety of game modes makes Dwarfs!? fully enjoyable.

..And you actually can feel the pain of losing dwarfs when the lava has been released.
