Dwarfs!? – arcade/strategy game

Dwarfs!? is a free arcade/strategy game set deep underground. Your goal is to explore a vast, randomly generated dungeon, while at the same time protecting your home town from harm.

It offers an addictive, fast paced arcade-like experience, with plenty of difficulties and game modes to play around in! In this game, your own Dwarfs double as your greatest asset and worst threat.

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.

Features include:

  • Fun for all ages and skill levels of gamers, with randomly-generated caves so the game is different every time.
  • 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 – where the Dwarf spawning knows no bounds.
  • Dark Mode – where a fog of war prevents you from seeing beyond your caves.
  • 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 – do everything you ever dreamed of by creating your own caves.
  • Challenge Mode – where you can put your overseer-abilities to the test.
  • Endless Mode – where you can keep mining forever, and ever.
  • 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.
