This is the Free-2-Play version of Dwarfs!? You can download the game and play the core game in Arcade mode, plus all the Tutorials and the Challenge modes completely free, forever. No charges, no subscriptions - just free. If you like those modes and want more, you can either pick the modes that you feel like playing and buy those individually - or just buy the whole pack to unlock everything.

Dwarfs!? offers an addictive, fast paced arcade-like experience, with plenty of difficulty levels and game modes to play, in the tradition of great games such as “Lemmings” and “Dwarf Fortress”. 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:
  • Fun for all ages and skill levels of gamers, with randomly-generated caves so the game is different every time.
  • Madly 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: 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!
  • 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: Create your own caves!
  • 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.

Dwarfs - F2P reviews and comments

A good Title that you can sometimes play Side by the way. Recommended for Arcadefans or People who can't afford Minecraft.

A really good Game for intermediate. Knuffy Graphics, and long Gameplay (with expansion) just great expelled at the Time.

An addictive Pastime for In Between. And through the Random Generator and the different Modes it always remains interesting and is once again a Glorious Challenge!!!

Quite funny, but nothing I can get friends with in the long term. F2P and therefore gladly tried, but there are better Games (From The same Maker I can highly recommend Killing Floor here XD)

At least in lemmings, we had only one "Caterpillar" to manage. Dwarves leave in every way in a map too wide for a human brain, one of them releases a lava flow and time to see where the incident is and then bring another dwarf so that he can commit suicide to make a hole with the explosive , the casting has already dispersed in the maze that these ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥-♥ ♥ ♥ s of dwarves have dug without asking you. Anyway, no interest!

I think there are many of you who just want To have success with the War Hammer or something to the Dwarfs! Axe to get for Killing Floor yet I can only say be careful, risk of Addiction! ;) The Game is really Fun and sometimes really stressful because the "Dwarfs" Do what they want and you have to save them again and again. You understand the Game very quickly and it's not hard at all (Unless you're always as overwhelmed as me):D Really recommended and for the Suchtis there are also extra Training Content (3 additional Levels of difficulty by the €1.50 I don't think I'm sure though, and the carnival games I bought to be honest just because of the Successes but which somehow disappointed me Because these were not a real Challenge:() Still great and worth his Money (Free2Play and so xD)
