25 BEST Scary Roblox Horror Games
With a lot of scary nights and dreaded fears, we’ve gone down and listed the best scary Roblox horror games for you right here.
Dead Silence is based on a horror movie of the same name and is filled with a dreadful atmosphere and horror. You are an investigator that’s charged with finding out what happened to Mary Shaw, a murdered ventriloquist that is haunting a small town.
The level design of this scary Roblox game is perfectly suited to deliver quality scares. You’ll be moving slowly and always checking corners. Half of the horror here is delivered with sound.
The sound design includes crispy clear creaks, great ambient sounds, and some curiously out-of-earshot whispers. Thankfully, you can bring up to 3 friends on the journey, which certainly dampens the scary mood and makes it easier to bear. Dead Silence is anything but silent and if you aren’t careful, you’ll also let out a couple of screams playing it.
The Mimic is a collection of four books that are all unique. The different stories are all inspired by Japanese folklore and history so they are richly detailed. Each book allows you to play a different character that adds to the variety of the gameplay experience. The game can be played solo or with friends, I recommend you go in with backup, especially if you get scared easily.
Fair warning, there are jump scares in this scary Roblox game and some of them are cleverly disguised. A dark atmosphere combined with chilling stories make a great scary experience and The Mimic knows how to land the scares.
This scary Roblox game is based on the urban legend of “Teke-Take”. The legend is about a school girl that fell on the train tracks and had her body cut in half. A pretty gruesome premise with an equally haunting Roblox game. The game is set in your childhood home but your family is nowhere to be found.
There is something watching you at all times as well. The quiet house is a perfect setup and is well crafted in terms of delivering horrors. Oh, while you are exploring the nooks and crannies, Geisha will be following you around. So good luck avoiding her.
Kalampokiphobia is the technical name for fear of corn and not clams that are pokey. Yes, just like people that call this the “scary corn game”, I’ve had trouble spelling the name. The game is simple and perhaps why it’s so popular in Roblox circles.
You have to run and hide from a creepy stalker all the while navigating a confusingly (on purpose) designed corn maze. It’s simple, it’s scary, and it will keep you running and fearing for your digital life for a while. The scary corn game can be played by kids too, just make sure they aren’t getting too scared.
Murder Party combines a couple of genres in a perfect and exciting mixture. This isn’t the typical jump-scare horror game, the horror is made by the players here. This is an online game that has four teams, murderers, hackers, party planners, and sheriffs. All have different objectives they have to play and complete.
The horror begins when people start murdering each other during the game, which knowing people only takes around 2 seconds. Overall, while the game lacks in the traditional horror department, it more than makes up for it with real players creeping up and murdering each other.
Flee the Facility
As the name suggests, Flee the Facility is about fleeing from a facility. You’ll have to run from the beast, sometimes even hide from it, and then eventually unlock exits and escape.
The gameplay is similar to the popular video game Dead by Daylight and Friday the Thirteenth and completely engages the player.
The atmosphere isn’t that gloomy but the constant threat of being caught is always providing some adrenaline-pumping escapes. This scary Roblox game runs perfectly on smartphones and tablets along with PC and Xbox. So no matter your platform, you are ready to flee the facility.
Alone in a Dark House
Looking for a super creepy experience in Roblox? Well, being Alone in a Dark House is as creepy as it gets. The game was nominated for the best single-player game at the Bloxy Award in 2020 and for good reason.
The title gives it all here in terms of premise, you play an investigator looking into the history of an abandoned house and the family that lived there.
I recommend getting the private server for this one as having other players around can ruin the experience. However, if you are easily scared, having company isn’t that bad.
Could Peppa Pig ever be scary? The harmless children’s cartoon character? Nah, it can’t be, right? Well, Piggy did make Peppa scary and I mean that in the best way possible. This is one of the few episodic horror Roblox games that just finished the second season and it is wildly popular.
The game offers a significantly meaty narrative for you to follow solo or along with friends. The lore is interesting and allows insight into why Piggy wants you dead. There is a certain terror in watching a baseball-wielding pink pig chasing you around. Oh, you also have to escape from the scary beast.
Stop it, Slender!
Based on the famous horror icon, Slender man, this horror Roblox game has a dense atmosphere and scary setting. You are tasked with finding 8 missing pages in the world but while it may sound easy, Slender Man himself is giving you a chase.
This is a race against time as you need to find the pages before Slender Man can get to you. To make matters worse, your flashlight has a tendency to turn off and flicker at the worst possible time. So you need to be careful as Slender Man could be waiting for you at any corner.
Imagine IKEA turning into a prison that you can’t break out of. That’s what 3008 offers. For anyone that has gotten lost in an IKEA, this is surely going to hit the sweet spot between desperation and horror. The fear of the mundane is a real phenomenon and 3008 capitalizes on it with superb execution.
There is something off about seeing an empty IKEA, remember going to school early before everyone else? This game captures that feeling. Will you be able to survive inside a Swedish furniture store that seemingly goes on and on? Play one of the best horror games on Roblox and find out for yourself.
Another zombie game on the list? Well, this one is about shooting zombies with your friends. It’s a wave-based game so you are tasked with surviving as many waves of brain-eating zombies as possible. You can team up with your friends as well, making the experience a lot more enjoyable.
As you progress through the waves, you’ll be able to get new and powerful weapons. However, there will be new rare zombies to attack you as well, plus there is also a zombie boss which shakes things up fairly well. Overall, as a horror game, it doesn’t do well because you can bring your friends with you, but it is a fun and exciting game that rewards good gameplay.
The Maze, as the name suggests, is a game about being lost in a maze. You have a trusty flashlight but it has a limited battery as well as a camera. All you need to do is get out of the maze and that’s about it. While it may sound straightforward, there are many creatures inside the maze that are going to stop you from escaping.
The best thing about The Maze is that you can invite up to 12 people with you to adventure. If the game is too scary for you to play, taking a couple of friends with you will make it fun and entertaining.
What do you get when you combine The Purge with Roblox? You get an epic horror game called Break In. Roblox creators are amazing at adapting scary movies to video games and this one is no different. However, unlike the movie, this game is about being an ordinary citizen and surviving 5 days where crime is legal.
The evil killers are all controlled by AI so you don’t have to worry about real-life people using advanced human tactics to take you down. The game even has a story along with multiple endings, a surprising but welcome addition.
Murder Mystery 2
This Roblox Horror game has hundreds of knives to choose from. But what do you do with them? Well, if you are playing as the murderer, your task is simple: Murder everyone. There are innocents in the game as well, if you are one, you need to run and hide from the murderer.
You are not hapless though, you can use your detective skills to expose the murderer and call the sheriff. Speaking of, the sheriff is the only one with a weapon that can kill the murderer. It is a fun game of hiding and seeking where the innocents work with the sheriff to kill the murderer while the murderer needs to kill off the innocents and avoid getting shot by the sheriff.
This isn’t as scary as the rest of the entries on our best scary Roblox horror games list but it offers something I’ve yet to see in a video game. You play as a harmless mouse trying to escape a terrifyingly serious cat. Think Tom and Jerry where Tom actually wants to murder the mouse.
You could play as the cat too, being the horror for another hapless vermin, but the game shines when you are trying to outwit a human. It is a different kind of horror and I loved playing it with a friend. There were some genuine moments of terror followed by unintentional comedy, breaking up the tension.
The Haunted Imperial Hotel
This game features a haunted hotel that is slowly being reclaimed by the earth and is abandoned due to multiple deaths. The game is atmospheric and has deeply mysterious environments. The game focused on horror and exploration, letting you discover its dark secrets.
There are enemies to fight and traps to avoid but if it gets too scary, you can always invite friends over to handle the jumpscares together. It’s an overall daunting and mystery filled experience that you should definitely check out.
Scary Elevator takes you from floor to floor and pits you against waves of ever-increasing (in difficulty) enemies. The enemies include famous horror game characters like Freddy from Five Nights at Freddy’s, Slenderman, Pennywise, Siren Head, and even Peppa Pig is in there. Your goal is simple: SURVIVE.
The game doesn’t make that easy either so you’ll have a lot on your hands when you encounter scary monsters in Scary Elevator. Along the way you gather points to unlock better gear that can help you survive the impending onslaught.
Stranger Things: Starcourt Mall
Stranger Things: Starcourt Mall features four different games that all offer something unique to the players. The Hawkins Lab Escape is a multiplayer mode that pits 5 players against 1, the solo player is tasked with stopping the others from escaping. If you are a fan of the Netflix series, then this game is a must-play.
Although I don’t like recommending games made as tie-in adverts, this one is well made and runs well across all devices. The Demogorgon (a weird dog-like monster from the show) is also included in the game.
Bear Alpha is a simple enough game, there is a bear that wants to kill everyone. That’s it, that’s the whole premise. However, there is a twist, the bear is controlled by a player and needs to kill other players in 5 minutes. The bear has increased movement speed so it can catch up to the players.
The players can counter that by using weapons to fight back against the bear. This power dynamic is fairly balanced and enjoyable. The environments in the game are sufficiently spooky. I always skip a heartbeat whenever the bear catches me.
Horror Elevator is like Scary Elevator with more horror. Jokes aside, the game is pretty similar as you go floor from floor fighting different scary monsters.
The game has flashing lights, jump scares, and also loud noises to keep you glued to your seat. The game is simple, all you need to do is survive the monsters.
There are a couple of monsters to fight too from Siren Head to aliens, from Michel Myers to Jason Voorhees. You can also fight a granny in this game, the evil granny is the scariest one too.
Breaking Point offers 4 different modes to play. Before the game starts, people get to vote on what mode should be played. The modes include Breaking Point which randomly tasks players to kill another player. You can do so in plain sight or be sneaky and do it privately. The gun can misfire as well, adding another twist to the horror happenings.
Once two players are left, they take out knives to finish the task. There is also Duck Duck Stab where the killer chooses who to kill, they duel and the survivor moves to the next round.
Then there is Duel Vote. Players vote on each other and the players with the most votes fight. You can also refrain from voting if you don’t want to cheer on a killing. The Who Is It mode is my favorite where one player is selected to be the murderer.
The lights go out and the murderer has to shoot someone within the time limit. The gun can also misfire in this mode. The lights come back on and players vote on who the murderer is. This mode is more like Among Us and fans of that game will love it.
The Mirror is spooky and plays tricks on the players. The premise is simple, you have to complete several tasks to overcome obstacles, the twist is, that you have to do so by looking at your own reflection.
The game has the right amount of scares and is a complete single-player experience. The game is based on a real psychological phenomenon, the longer you stare into a mirror the weirder your reflection becomes. The game should be released in VR as well, it’s that good. Here are some other great VR games for you to enjoy though.
A Wolf or Other
A Wolf or Other is from the werewolf subgenre of horror games popular on Roblox. It is one of the best scary Roblox games in terms of presentation. You can either play as the hunter, a werewolf, or an innocent person.
The innocents are tasked with identifying the werewolf among them, telling the hunter so he can kill it. This needs to be done before the full moon is here and the werewolf transforms dooming everyone. This isn’t super scary and can be a fun party game to play with kids as well.
In Finders Keepers, you are a paranormal investigator that is tasked with checking out strange happenings at a house. You’ll need to find clues and figure out what happened to the family that used to live there and disappeared.
The clues are disks you have to gather in dark rooms that are hidden in plain view. That sounds good but there is also a dark entity that is hell-bent on stopping you. If you like a good mystery mixed with horror, Finders Keepers is a game made for you.
Survive the Killer!
As the name suggests, you need to survive the killer in this scary Roblox horror game. If you are familiar with games like Dead by Daylight or Friday the 13th, this will be right up your alley. The game lets you be the survivor or the killer. As a survivor, you can run and hide from the killer while the killer is on the hunt.
As a killer, your task is to kill as many players as you can before the timer runs out. Overall, it’s a simple and fun concept that is great solo but really shines as a party game. It’s not that scary to play as a killer as you’ll be the one doing the killing, but playing as a survivor can be terrifying.
These were the 20 best scary Roblox horror games. Some are single-player games while some are better played with a group of friends. Some games are more fun than horror as well, so if you want to play them with your kids or little siblings, you can do so without scaring them too much.
There are a ton more horror games on Roblox and I’m sure we’ll see some amazing games from young creators on the platform soon as well. This is the beauty of Roblox, it allows young creative gamers to express themselves and make something truly wonderful. Check out more horror games if Roblox isn’t giving you your fear fix.
