Scary Elevator (Made 2020, Updated 2021)

Perhaps we all have a phobia about elevators, and that’s understandable. Who knows what awaits you at each floor. Scary Elevator  for Roblox exploits exactly that grim scenario, as it stops the player at random floors where he’ll experience horrific situations. As you already guessed, there won’t be any hugs and presents there, as most of the scenarios will involve entities that try to kill the player’s character.

Piggy (Made 2020, Updated 2021)

Piggy has a simple premise: one person is selected as the Piggy and has to kill all of the other players before the time expires. Don’t confuse this game with anything cute, it’s quite a terrifying character. Players have to unlock the exit using different items they find along the way. Players must also look out for traps, which makes this game even more challenging.

The Asylum (Made 2020, Updated 2021)

The Asylum is probably one of the creepiest in our Scary Roblox Games’ List. You enter this eerie looking building, and as you continue exploring, you hear weird sounds and notice strange occurrences everywhere. It’s quiet, subtle, just enough to make you feel the fear in your bones. There have been many players that couldn’t even finish it!

Facility (Made 2020, Updated 2021)

In this frightening game, you can play as the monster or be hunted by the monster. The premise is simple: try and escape. It’s easier said than done, try Facility for yourself!

Horror Portals (Made 2020, Updated 2021)

Horror Portals is a game with lots of jump scares, and is currently based in 3 settings: a birthday environment, a carnival, and a hospital. There are lots of endings to this game, 13 in total. See if you can check them all out, if you dare.

Gertrude (Made 2020, Updated 2021)

Gertrude is a frightening game about a girl who lives in the mirrors. The objective of the game is to escape from an asylum, but Gertrude isn’t having any of it. She wants you to stay forever! Do you think you can escape Gertrude?

The Apartment (Made 2019, Updated 2021)

If you think that exploring a haunted house is frightening enough, why not go a level beyond and wander throughout a whole building? In this Scary Roblox Game, your character gets to deal with various scary entities on every floor, and trying to run away could become his only option. Every step is difficult in this game, as evil forces will track you all down with every breath your character takes.

The Mirror (Made 2019, Updated 2021)

If you remember the ‘Mirrors’ movie from 2008 that was directed by Alexandre Aja, it means you have a great taste in horror productions. ‘The Mirror‘ game for Roblox created as a single-player psychological horror title follows a similar recipe: the player’s character has to shut down the lights and stare at a mirror until weird things start to happen. Whispers are uttered, there are growls, the room’s atmosphere changes into different color shades, and more. If you don’t have a strong mind, you better avoid this game.

Jigsaw’s Revenge (Made 2019, Updated 2021)

Based on the famous horror movie Saw, Jigsaw’s Revenge is focused on you and several other players. Only one person can survive. Through a series of mysteries, deranged challenges and mini games, you will need to compete against others to try and survive. The penalty for losing is fatal!

A Wolf or Other (Made 2018, Updated 2021)

A Wolf or Other is a game about a werewolf that comes out every full moon. The werewolf is actually one of the other players, so one of your closest friends could change during the full moon and get you. This adds a lot of suspense because you aren’t sure who you can and cannot trust. In some ways, the player dynamic reminds me of Among Us.

Granny (Made 2018, Updated 2021)

There’s a granny up for no good in this horror game, and one player gets to be in charge of her. The other players have to run for their virtual lives, as Granny will use every dirty trick in the book in order to kill them. There’s also a timer, and those running away from the evil granny will have to stay alive for a certain period of time.

Zombie Attack (Made 2017, Updated 2021)

Time to make the jump from scary to hardcore! If you like shooters where you get to blow the organs out of horrendous creatures, such as Sniper Elite: Zombie Army, then you’ll certainly love the Zombie Attack game created for Roblox in 2017! If you’re not among those numerous gamers who care too much about graphics, you can start right away to shoot some zombies in Zombie Attack!

Project Lazarus: Zombies (Made 2016, Updated 2021)

Need even more zombies to deal with while playing Roblox? If the answer is yes, it means you cannot miss the Project Lazarus: Zombies game! By creating some disgusting and out-of-this-world sounds, the zombies in this game will do all that they can to take down the players. But while the players are equipped with guns, they must not hesitate to use them against the evil creatures of the dead!

Murder Mystery 2 (Made 2014, Updated 2021)

If you want more than jump scares, then Murder Mystery 2 will be down your alley. You can play with up to other 11 players, where there’s one “murderer,” a “sheriff” and ten “innocents.” Thre are three modes – Casual, Hardcore, and Assassin. Only the sheriff spawns with a gun that he can use to protect the innocents. If the sheriff is killed, an innocent can pick it up to become the “hero” if they kill the murderer. Murder Mystery 2 is both a scary and fun game to play with friends!

Alone in a Dark House (Made 2014, Updated 2021)

Picture this – you’re all alone, even the silence becomes deafening, the bloodstains on the floor are revealing more than a thousand words, and even your own shadow quickly becomes your enemy – this is what the ‘Alone in a Dark House‘ game proposes for Roblox. Prepare to let your imagination run wild thinking about all the things that lurk in the shadows and dark corners of the dark house.

Horror Elevator (Made 2014, Updated 2021)

Horror Elevator has 30 floors of madness. This is one of the oldest elevator games on Roblox, and it is the scariest version of The Normal Elevator. There’s a Slenderman floor as well! You can play this game with other nine players. Can you survive long enough?

Dead Silence (Made 2011, Updated 2021)

The Mary Shaw myth comes alive in this Roblox horror game, where you have to unravel the mystery. Dead Silence introduces a story, unlike most horror games where you have to mindlessly kill zombies and survive as long as possible. You’re an investigator, and you can play with up to two other players. If you want to experience horror at maximum, play it alone and try not to scream!

Stop it, Slender! (Made 2010, Updated 2021)

Horror elements are reaching new heights in survival games, and that’s what “Stop it, Slender!” proposes. This Roblox game is based on the popular title Slender: The Eight Pages. The player has to find the three generators and activate them, while also collecting all eight pages. Above all, he must avoid Slender, and as you may have already guessed, Slender is not a fan of giving flowers to girls.

A Normal Camping Story (Made 2020, Updated 2020)

It starts off just as the name implies, a normal camping story. However, it starts to unfold with some twists and turns that are very unnerving. Enjoy this game a few times as there are multiple endings.

Bear Alpha (Made 2019. Updated 2020)

If you’re idea of fun is running away from a spooky phantom bear that shows itself when you least expect it, then trying out Bear Alpha for Roblox is practically mandatory. The terrible Bear is not an NPC in this game, it’s actually one of the 10 players allowed in a round. The other players are the survivors, and they all have a limited time available for getting out of danger.

However, you must remember that Bear Alpha is still under the testing phase.

The Rake (Made 2018, Updated 2020)

The Rake is truly a frightening game, as you need to survive and escape a creepy grey figure. Killing it is possible, but not easily. You have to use teamwork, and discover some unique ways to actually harm him.

Before the Dawn: Redux (Made 2017, Updated 2020)

If you find yourself wanting more Roblox survival games, then you should definitely give Before the Dawn: Redux a try. There are different levels to choose from and various tasks and challenges that will test your gaming skills in different ways. Beware of the many traps and dangers that lurk in the shadows!

Zombie Rush (Made 2013, Updated 2020)

Zombie Rush a fast-paced game full of action. Players team up to battle against skeletons and zombies. This game gets more and more fun as you go on, because you can keep unlocking more weapons and even access a Hardcore mode.

Ghost Hunt (Made 2011, Updated 2020)

In this creepy game, you need to explore a mysterious mental hospital. You have to rely on cameras, various light sources, and other means to survive. And of course, just as the name of the game indicates, you need to hunt a ghost!

Roses (made 2017, updated 2019)

This is one of those Roblox games that stands out both for its graphics and story. The player’s mission is to look for someone in an asylum. On the journey, you’ll have to explore the area, find clues, and take on many thrilling challenges.

You must also keep in mind that Roses is not free – it will cost you 25 Robux.

Nightmare Mine (Made 2009, Updated 2015)

What makes this game better than the rest of the zombies game is that it’s not extremely scary, but it is also filled with some interesting puzzles. You end up playing the game to see the next room, while also trying to survive the hordes of zombies that were once the miners working there.
