Dwarfs!? is a two-dimensional RTS developed by Power Of Two. Gameplay The players control a mining colony of dwarves, who dig for treasures. The players have to mine the resources and to protect the colony from environmental hazards, such as water and lava and different enemies. The main objective of the game is to mine resources and find special caves. All of this earns the players gold, which can be spent for spawning new dwarves, upgrading the existing ones or build the town up. At the beginning of the game, the players choose which difficulty setting to play on and set a time limit. The game ends if the time limit expires or the town gets destroyed. Units The game features two kinds of dwarves: warriors, and diggers. Warriors participate in combat, and their numbers are limited. It is possible to spawn more warriors by upgrading a Town Hall or an Outpost. The warriors can also be trained on the Outpost. While not in combat, they will roam around your town and patrol it. Diggers, on the other hand, spawn automatically at Town Halls and Outposts. While walking back and forth in the town, they generate resources. If a digger gets scared by a nearby combat situation, they can dig themselves. Sometimes this works against the diggers as they dig into the support walls the hold the water off.

Dwarfs!? reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
original arcade games and pretty well done, but hard enough since we often lose control... the dwarves commit suicide, release demons and bosses, drown, throw themselves in the lava, etc...

Good game, but it doesn't worth $10. Good thing I got it from a bundle. The F2P is more than enough, the full version only gives you a minigame of throwing axes, an extra difficulty, and some challenges i think.

Dwarfs, nice little game, I did not spend much time because despite these good points I quickly bored. Let's say it will serve me to pass the time when I get really pissed and I have found no other game to throw.

14/20 because-very typed "arcade". -neither too simple nor too difficult. -many and varied game modes. -efficient to pass the time...-soundtrack repetitive, but that goes well in the context of fast games. By counter-graphics typed "arcade", not really unforgettable. -game modes not necessarily interesting. -graduation.

Although I like general management and strategy games, I do not like a lot of random or chaotic like this, maybe someone who likes the genre encanta, in fact has good reviews, but I personally did not like and I chirped enough tutorial , Voices and music. And I also think they should have worked a little harder on the graphics and the translations. Although I also recognize that they worked a little with the modes of play. Note: 3/10

Got this game for free, but actually it's one of the most boring games I've ever played. In my opinion, the graphic is gross. But what's even worse is the gameplay. For who who likes that it might be fun an hour or two, but not more. I thought it would be some sort of "Lemmings" if anyone remembers. But it wasn't at all. You keep digging in one direction, find some materials and keep digging. That's it. There's no goal or anything similar at all. Result: If you like watching some dwarfs digging through the screen it might be fun, but I'd highly recommend to even then not buy it for the full price. Good night/morning everyone.
