Trying to find the best Roblox horror games to play? There are tons of experiences on Roblox, but it can be difficult when trying to find the ones worth your time – especially when it comes to the horror genre We’ve rounded up our favourite Roblox horror games to play right now to help you find a bounty of new frights!

Best Roblox Horror Games

Let’s take a look at our current favourite Roblox Horror games!

Current Favourites

The Long Drive

If you’re familiar with the original game of the same name, you’ll know what to expect in this one! It’s essentially a scarier version of The Long Drive but on the Roblox platform. It’s incredibly well-made, and with the post-apocalyptic vibes done right, it’s up to you to survive the dangerous environment. You have to rely on your car, but what happens when the world shifts around you and you’re unprepared?

The Mimic

The Mimic is one of the most played horror games on the platform. There’s a reason for it! If it wasn’t for the recognisable avatars, you could easily mistake this game as an indie PC title that isn’t based on Roblox. An important factor of the horror genre is atmosphere, and The Mimic has plenty of it. With multiple stories to play through that are inspired by Japanese urban legends, you can dive into a book as you discover the tales of 4 different people.

The first thing that caught my attention in HAUNT was the fact that it takes place underground. Damp dungeons with flickering candles will always be creepy to me, and that’s why it works so well in this game. Whether you opt to play alone or with some friends, it’s your job to escape the deep dark depths. The game itself looks amazing, with excellent shadow placements, and candlelight that tricks your eyes. You really do feel like you’re trapped underground in this one, and for that, the developer’s have done a fantastic job!

Betty’s Nursery 2

promo image for betty's nursery 2, of a strange red human figure with a toothy grin and wide eyes as it runs across a ball bit, there is a wide-mouthed clown creature coming out of the tunnel slide, while a small toothy face glows in the dark shadows

This one’s a bit of a weird one, but I have to put it in here as the overall vibes gave me chills. I’m not a fan of the fact that you need to run on a treadmill to gain speed – that gameplay feature doesn’t exactly appeal to me in Roblox games. However, the parts where you’re climbing through the play area are truly terrifying. As children, these play areas looked huge to us, but fun nonetheless. Taking that childhood nostalgia and mixing it with unsettling enemies is genius. Familiar images and structures await, but there’s someone… or something… lurking in the shadows beneath.

Thanataphobia (Remastered)

Thanatophobia has that grittiness that I love in horror games. It reminds me of the short indie titles from the golden age of gaming YouTube. For me, if the enemy models don’t quite look right, it completely takes me out of the immersion. Well, you’ll be glad to know that Thanatophobia has some extremely disturbing monsters. A decent amount of detail has been put into their overall designs and faces, which makes it all the more scary when you get caught!

The Waiting Room

promo image for the waiting room on roblox, with 4 different screenshots from the game, from the left is a cloack that is flying towards a smiley face portrait on the wall at the end of the corridor, the next image is of an office set up in a cubicle, the third is a room that has fake grass and the walls are covered in a cloudy sky and green hills as a door is placed in the corner, and the last image is of a door in an empty white space, the game's name is glitchy as it appears twice on the image

Okay, this one might not be a typical horror per se, but I think it deserves a spot in this feature! It makes the most of liminal space and manages to encapsulate the dread that comes with it. You never know what to expect in The Waiting Room. it doesn’t rely on jumpscares and scary creatures, but it manages to make you feel uncomfortable.

All-Time Favourites

Think of this section as an archive of sorts! These Roblox horror games still stand strong and are just as immersive – timeless classics.

Short Creepy Stories

We can’t make a Roblox Horror games feature without mentioning Short Creepy Stories. This game is arguably one of the best and most popular experiences on the platform – and it gets regular updates! With new upcoming stories, including seasonal events, there’s always something to go back for.

Whether you want to play each level solo or in a group, Short Creepy Stories takes you through a variety of chilling tales. Plus, the graphics look fantastic. The sound design is great, the enemies are terrifying, and there’s even more to come – what’s not to love?


promo image for nightlight, there is a roblox character wearing a backwards cap while hiding behind a wall holding a lit candle, there is a humanoid monster walking towards them in a dark hallway

The main goal of Nightlight is to get out of a stranger’s house in the middle of a forest. This stranger seemed nice at first, offering up a place to stay for the night. However, something isn’t quite right about this situation. You can choose to work solo or with other players as you search through the house for 8 notes that spell out the word ‘Selfish’.

Sounds easy, right? Well, you’ve also got to make sure your candle is lit at all times by finding matches. If your candle goes out, and you stand in the dark for too long… let’s just say the creature thrives in the darkness.


promo image for blair, with two roblox characters walking down a hallway as a tall monster follows them, there are hand prints and scratches on the wall, as a roblox character lays unconcious on the ground, there is also a lit jack o lantern on the floor by a wall, the roblox characters are all holding ghost hunting equipment as well as face masks

If you’re a fan of Phasmophobia, then you’ll be glad to know that Blair is basically the Roblox version! You play as a ghost hunter (solo or with up to 3 other people), and you’re tasked with working out which type of ghost is haunting the property (sounds just like Phasmophobia, right?).

With 12 different ghosts to choose from and encounter, you need to find specific pieces of evidence that point toward which ghost it is to successfully complete the mission. Oh, and don’t forget, the ghosts aren’t happy that you’re there…

The Intruder

promo image for the intruder, with two of the game's entities staring at the viewer through the camera, there is camera static across the image as both characters have wide eyes, while the character on the right has a long mouth with teeth, there is text at the top that reads 'watch their every move'

Ever imagined a mixture of Five Nights at Freddy’s, Dead by Daylight, and the Mandela Catalogue? Well, that’s what you get in The Intruder. It’s an incredibly eerie game, that focuses on mechanics similar to FNAF and even has a level inspired by DBD. It’s got a great amount of variety and scares – plus, the model for ‘the intruder’ is very unsettling, which really adds to the horror!

The Intruder is a unique take on the core features of FNAF but with a unique twist that doesn’t disappoint.

Forgotten Memories

promo image for forgotten memories, the image shows freddy fazbear's pizzeria with a neon sign with a few broken lights, there is a parked car outside as well as a bonfire, the game's logo is to the side with the logo for PC, mobile and xbox down below

Forgotten Memories is one of the best Five Nights at Freddy’s spin-offs on Roblox. It’s more or less a faithful recreation of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria, as well as the animatronics that we’re all familiar with. However, instead of being confined to the security room while staring at cameras, you need to explore the restaurant!

As you walk around the pizzeria, you’ll come across the not-so-friendly animatronics – and they’re not exactly friendly. The main point of the game is to find out what exactly is going wrong at Freddy Fazbear’s restaurant, and why it was abandoned in the first place. Wander through dark corridors, use your flashlight when possible, and avoid the creaks and mechanical whirs that lurk in the shadows.

Color or Die

promo image for color or die, with a drawing of a roblox character holding a paint bucket filled with blue paint as they hide against a blue section of the wall, each section of the wall is a different colour, as a tall monster walks down the hallway

Color or Die has a really cool premise, and it pays off! Scary and challenging, this horror game requires quick thinking and a lot of hiding. Depending on the colour of your paint bucket, you can only hide in front of the walls that match the paint.

However, to progress through the game, you’ll need to pick up paint buckets with new colours. Oh, and there’s also a variety of doors to open and items that need to be found. Keep note of which walls you can hide in front of when holding a new paint bucket – if you hear an ominous noise, it’s time to hide!

Last but not least, PETAPETA is a game inspired by Japanese horror – one of my favourite genres! It ticks all the boxes of J-Horror, making it one of the most effective experiences on Roblox. As the player, you stroll and cower through the rooms of a traditional Japanese hotel that doesn’t seem to have had any visitors in recent years. There’s also a looming fear of dread as your flashlight hardly casts a shine over the walls – don’t always believe what you see in the shadows…

There’s a terrifying entity hunting you throughout your time in the building, as the hotel starts to slowly feel like it’s a neverending loop of hallways and doors. Explore the hauntingly quiet building to find clues and solve the mystery of PETAPETA.
