Despite its blocky quirk, the world of Roblox is inhabited by several scary horror games. While most of them are still suitable for the whole family and for all ages, there are some that are quite unsettling and intense.
Some of them are not recommended for younger children. This article offers you some of the best Roblox horror games out there and also tells you which ones you should play and which you probably shouldn't.
10 Best Roblox Horror Games
Check out the best Roblox horror games available to play on platforms below.
10. Murder Mystery 2
Murder Mystery 2 is a very popular Roblox game suitable for most ages. It's a classic Cluedo game, or Between Us, reimagined on Roblox. There's one murder per round, a group of innocents trying to find out who did it, and a sheriff who can help.
That's scary? Not exactly, although the premise is a little shady for young children. Thanks to the quirky graphics and comical weapons, there's not much difference between this Roblox game and a children's cartoon you'd see on morning TV.
9. Alone in A Dark House
On the other side of the scary spectrum, there's Alone In A Dark House. This one is a little scary. It's a classic horror setting: an abandoned house full of secrets and almost no light bulbs. There are multiple endings to this somewhat story-driven game, and not all of them are pleasant.
You can play with multiple other players – which makes the experience a little less daunting – or solo for maximum fights. This game is not recommended for the little ones as it can be distracting.
8. Stop It, Slender!
There are numerous Slender games on Roblox and their popularity changes day by day. The most popular title in 2022 is Stop It, Slender!, an atmospheric and rather scary game that involves finding hidden pages before Slender finds you.
Stop It, Slender! It has all the hallmarks of a horror game: a flickering lantern, a dilapidated and abandoned building, and of course the weird faceless Slender chasing you through the night. Even with all the blocky graphics and blurry textures, this game might make you jump.
7. The Mirror
The Mirror is another rather disturbing Roblox game. It makes use of scary jumps and dodgy noises to scare you. You'll find yourself in a sort of underground bunker filled with mirrors, although the mirrors aren't quite what they seem.
Again, this game can be played with other players, but it's basically a solo experience. Recommended for younger children? Probably not, no. Instilling a fear of mirrors from an early age is not a good idea. Still, it's a good place to check out your free Roblox haircuts.
6. Zombie Attack
This is basically a quieter version of Call of Duty: Zombies and can be enjoyed by kids of all ages. It's not realistic... not at all. The animations and textures (and everything else) are all typically Roblox. Kids can definitely give this one a shot.
How does the game work? Each round, a group of players must defend against swarms of zombies. There are different weapons and upgrades you can use. If you drop as a defender, you can be reborn as a zombie, a bit like the Infected mode in Call of Duty.
What's more sinister than a pig wielding a baseball bat? Anything. Nothing is more sinister. The Piggy series of Roblox games is a long-running popular franchise, if you can call the Roblox games a franchise, which has attracted hundreds of thousands of players.
The game is simple: solve a puzzle while avoiding Piggy's staring, dead eyes. The game is currently in the second book and seventh chapter and at the time of writing it has already had over eight billion hits. There are many players.
4. Survive the Killer
Noticing a trend in Roblox horror games? There are many where you're basically running from something that's hunting you, and Survive the Killer embraces that concept. However, things are a little different here, as one player can be the assassin each round.
This is another very popular Roblox game in 2022 with a steady player base of over 10.000. Like all other platform games, there are ways to level up your character to get buffs and cosmetics.
3. The Mimic
Much like Slender, The Mimic is a story-based horror game where you enter an abandoned building (this time a high school) in search of clues. The game is currently in its third chapter and is one of the most popular horror games on Roblox this year.
The game uses spooky lighting, jump scares, and storytelling via notes scattered around the school. Is it suitable for small children? Probably not, it's one of the scariest games on this list.
2. Insane Elevator
The premise of these games on Roblox is that you jump on an elevator with a chance to get some in-game currency, but it's usually something scary (a Slender, a Piggy, a few Zombies). It is played with several other players.
Insane Elevator isn't that scary, that's why it's one of the most popular horror games on Roblox. Suitable for all ages, the number of other players grouped together makes this game more fun than scary.
1. Breaking Point
Breaking Point was originally banned from Roblox, but is currently one of the most popular games on the platform. It's sort of a murder mystery type game where players take turns to take down everyone else.
The last player alive wins the game, a bit like the classic Werewolf game. Is the game scary? Well, it's pretty dark, but that's the scariest part.
