Welcome to our list of the best scary Roblox games, a list we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, being devout fans of horror games and all that.
We’ve picked 31 spine-chilling Roblox horror games that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
These games offer immersive experiences, heart-pounding jump scares, and creepy monsters that will haunt your dreams. So buckle up, and let’s dive into the world of scary Roblox games.
Table of Contents
1. The Asylum
The Asylum by Eagle Studios was pretty popular as one of the most scary Roblox games out there a couple of years ago.
In it, players find themselves trapped in an abandoned psychiatric hospital.
With its grisly atmosphere, jump scares and creepy sound effects, this multiplayer Roblox horror game promises an experience that will make you forget all about the shoddy graphics.
Once you’ve finished Chapter 1, there’s Chapter 2 to explore as well. The second installment will have you investigating another building near the asylum.
Trust us, it’s a lot of fun to play, especially with friends. You can get passes for up to 4 friends, a brighter flashlight and increased walking speed.
2. Insane Elevator
Insane Elevator takes players on a scary elevator ride through various horror scenarios, with different monsters on every level.
In this scary Roblox game, you’ll feel your heart skip a beat at the sound of each ding as the doors slide open on various levels and tease you into exploring what fresh terror awaits you.
Some of the monsters are not quite as dangerous, such as evil SpongeBob and Siren Head.
But then are others like Slender Man and Link from Zelda who are not as easy to get away from.
The point of the game is to see if you can survive each floor and get back on the elevator without freezing up from the jump scares or at the claws of a monster.
3. The Mirror
In The Mirror, you find yourself alone in an empty room with mildew creeping down the walls.
There’s a mirror in front of you, a switch to dim or brighten the overhead lights and a set of instructions taped to the wall.
If this scary Roblox game has been inspired by the real life experiment by Dr. Giovanni B Caputo from the University of Urbino, then what you have to do is pretty clear — stare at the mirror until you start seeing something eerie.
But wait, there’s a door behind you.
So should you continue looking into the mirror or explore what’s behind the door?
4. Alone in a Dark House
Alone in a Dark House is a single-player scary Roblox horror game where you take on the role of a private investigator who’s asked to solve a peculiar murder case.
The investigation surrounds a car crash in which two passengers were found with their heads split open, and the driver of the car has gone missing.
The chief of police asks you to start by exploring the couple’s house. You are also tasked with telling their son Eric (should you find him) about the tragedy.
This scary Roblox game challenges players to swallow their fear in order to crack puzzles, avoid traps, and find their way through claustrophobia-inducing passageways as they try to solve the double murder.
We had to add Roses to this list for its nostalgia factor more than anything else. This was a horror game that received two nominations for the 6th Annual Bloxys, after all.
The first version had players escaping with an inmate from a mental institution.
But it was updated later to alter the plot and have the main character searching for his friend Max in the abandoned Newport Asylum.
The beautifully designed game stands testament to the building talent of its creator, “Michaelvanderfin.” It was later acquired by Clockwork Entertainment.
There’s no doubt that Roses would have been a great game had it been completed fully.
Unfortunately, there are no plans to update it any longer and gamers stand to gain little from collecting “roses”. It’s still worth a gander though.
6. Dead Silence
Dead Silence is a multiplayer horror game on Roblox which has the players (or player, if you want to go solo) investigating a missing person’s case.
You’re looking for Leslie Withers, a cop who has vanished while on patrol.
Your journey starts from a network of sewers as you follow the clues to figure out the mystery of her disappearance.
From the sewers, you find your way into what looks to be an abandoned railway line and maintenance rooms along both sides.
Would you dare to continue your investigations as you come across ominous signs of Satanic rituals, blood and skulls strewn about the place?
7. Dark Corners
The premise of Dark Corners is pretty simple. You have to find your way to the exit through a maze of very poorly lit passages in chapter 1 in this scary Roblox game.
There are four chapters you can play, each with a similar setting and one goal (which we won’t spoil).
As you go through the corridors collecting glowing shards, thus obliterating all traces of light behind you, you will feel a sense of doom and dread creeping over you.
The developer is not planning any further updates to the title. But it still is worth a spin for fans of scary games like this.
8. Breaking Point
Breaking Point combines tense party game elements with various horrifying scenarios, which is why it’s a perfect addition to our list of scary Roblox games.
In this multiplayer game, players must outlast each other, all while dealing with the ever-present threat of a mysterious murderer in their midst.
This thrilling mix of deception and paranoia will keep you on your toes until you’re the last person standing…or not.
9. Murder Mystery 2
Murder Mystery 2 pits players against one another in a deadly game of cat and mouse.
As either the murderer, the sheriff, or an innocent bystander, players must use their wits to survive and uncover the killer’s identity.
It’s probably not the best fit for this list if you’re only looking for dark, scary games.
But it is fun to play as you race around trying not to get killed until the timer runs out and sets you free.
With its blend of suspense and strategy, Murder Mystery 2 is a must-play for fans of online party games like this.
10. The Apartment
The Apartment by “TubPong” immerses players in a haunting experience where they must explore an apartment building and uncover its dark history.
In it, your friend asks you to visit him in room 705. You enter the poorly lit lobby and see that the elevator is barred by yellow tape; it’s not working.
You look for the stairs and start climbing your way to the 7th floor. Should you explore every floor on the way, or should you go straight up?
The choice is entirely yours.
The lack of background music enhances the eeriness of your experience as all you can hear are your footsteps as you make your way through the passageways.
They’re lit by flickering lights and haunted by everyday sounds like a baby crying and a woman giggling.
11. The Rake REMASTERED:
Experience terror like never before in The Rake Remastered, an enhanced version of the well-known horror game for Roblox.
Players find themselves in a forested area with a cave in which a dreaded monster lurks..but only until darkness falls.
They must work together to survive the relentless nocturnal attacks of the dreaded Rake and hopefully, kill it.
Equipped with only a flashlight and their wits, players must use strategy, cooperation, and stealth to evade the creature and escape alive in this scary game.

The audio is baked in perfectly. The sound of your footsteps as you race through a sprawling, dimly lit office complex and the adjoining the service tunnels, store rooms, ventilator shafts and underground parking spaces, is enough to give you nightmares.
