Roblox’s unique community-made games have managed to keep its online storefront a hit among players in 2021. The extensive library is loaded with awesome blocky games, and some of them can be very scary.

Roblox is a classic game that has remained a blockbuster among players despite newer competitors rolling in with better visuals. For many reasons, players can’t seem to get enough of Roblox’s cute and angular block characters. One of the crucial reasons behind Roblox’s success is that it is heavily in touch with its community of players. It’s not your regular storefront. Players get to play games made by other developers who are also frequent users of the platform. In 2021, the Roblox game library has over 20 million games with distinct themes, backgrounds, and visuals. 

While Roblox is predominantly known for its chill, meme material game mods, a massive chunk of players enjoy the scarier side just as much. The game becomes funnier and more bizarre, with short characters donned in bright outfits roaming in the haunted alleys of Roblox. With that in mind, here are some of the best horror Roblox games you can play in 2021. 

The Horror Elevator

You may want to scratch this one off your list if you fear enclosed spaces, as this game is set in a small elevator where players tackle scary creatures. A new monster awaits you on each floor and you’re tasked with fighting the beasts each time the elevator comes to a halt. The soundtrack and jump scares add a realistic touch to the whole haunted building experience. 

Alone in the Dark

You can finally live your fantasy of a fierce private investigator left in a spooky house in Alone in the Dark Roblox Game. Created by iTamago, Alone in the Dark is one of the top favorites among Roblox players since it allows a massive lobby of 20 players. As an investigator, you have to solve a murder mystery, solve puzzles, and find clues while scary visuals and sound effects remind you of a paranormal force around you.

The Apartment 

This game is much similar to the elevator as it also features a mysterious building plagued by unknown spirits. To reach room 705 and finally reunite with your friends, you must go through some mysterious creatures. With each floor the apartment becomes that much gloomier, making your journey to 705 seem almost impossible. 

Stop it Slender

The infamous Slender Man makes a cameo in Roblox game, and he’s just as scary as everyone imagined. This game mode features frequent  jump scares and surprise peaks at Slender Man, who’s not at all pleasant to look at. 


This game is an absolute nightmare for players who are fans of haunted asylum stories. Roses require players to walk around a spooky shelter tainted with madness. This horror-fantasy game oils up your detective skills and ensures some great jump scares.
