Dwarfs is a free to play online strategy game developed by Power of 2 and published by Tripwire Interactive. The indie developing company behind Dwarfs is named this way because it is made up of only 2 people. There is a programmer and a graphic designer. Dwarfs is nowhere near big budget MMO games when it comes to graphics but it definitely has quality gameplay and strategy features. Players are required to explore a huge underground labyrinth. They also have to defend their home base. Dwarfs is available for free on Steam. The free to play version includes tutorials, arcade and challenge modes. Those who wish to unlock more Dwarfs modes can buy them one at a time or get a discount pack.
Game mechanics make Dwarfs an arcade style game with fast paced action. It’s a bit similar to Lemmings or Dwarf Fortress. Dwarfs players are in charge of a dwarven underground settlement. The goal is to gather as many riches as fast as possible. The sad truth is that all dwarf colonies are doomed and it is only a matter of time until yours will be wiped out. The underground caves Dwarfs players get to explore are filled with dangers. The greatest perils are the evil Spider Queens. As a ruler over dwarf workers you have to send them explore and collect riches from the randomly generated underground map. This is your play area. You have to watch out for all sorts of creatures attacking your mining expedition. Dwarfs virtual world is full of dark elves, goblins, skeletons and even zombies. Another thing to watch out for is the safety of your town hall. This is your most important building. Dwarfs are heavy beer consumers and the town hall is where beer is stored. Dwarfs is a game with many funny elements. For example, the dwarf cannon is a weapon that uses dwarfs as projectiles.
The developers created Dwarfs for all types of players. The map is randomly generated every time you start a Dwarfs game. There is a good selection of Dwarfs modes. Players can choose from 4 difficulty options. You can choose unlimited time or just 5 minutes. New players are encouraged to complete the campaign challenges first. Base defense mode has tower defense mechanics. You have to survive incoming mob attacks. Rush mode, endless mode and dark mode have additional features. There is even a Dwarfs sandbox mode. Players can use their imagination and design unique caves. Dwarfs is not a MMORPG but there are leaderboards and achievements that keep track of Dwarfs players performance. Dwarfs has been recognized as a worthy game and has received GGA Pwnage and SGA Game of the Year awards.
