In this chaotic universe of ours, only three things are certain: death, taxes and that Dwarfs always dig too deep.
'Dwarfs!?' is, surprisingly enough, a game about Dwarfs! As the new overseer, your job is to manage small colonies of the buggers, trying to make them as successful as possible before meeting their inevitable doom! Sounds easy enough, eh? Unfortunately, these Dwarfs are not the silly, dolled up versions in mithril armor we see on television. They are the real deal: greedy, confused and terribly drunk. In order to succeed, you? ll have to bribe them, blow them up and send them flying in cannons!
'Dwarfs!?' offers an addictive, fast paced arcade-like experience, with plenty of difficulties and game modes to play around in! In this game, your own Dwarfs double as your greatest asset and worst threat. They explore for you, they mine for you and they fight for you -- but if you don't keep an eye on them, they'll do what they do best: die for you and take everyone else with them!
Nothing in 'Dwarfs!?' is free, though. To force your 'loyal subjects' to do your bidding, you must cough up the gold. The same gold that might save your beard when someone, somewhere disturbs a Spider Queen.
Don't be fooled - Dwarfs are tiny, but this game is full of features:
Addictive Arcade Mode with four difficulties, ranging from grandma-easy to batsh*t insane
Base Defense, which is like Tower Defense, but, like, the name is changed
Rush Mode Survival, where the Dwarf spawning knows no bounds
Dark Mode, where a fog of war prevents you from seeing beyond your caves
Sandbox Mode, where you can basically do everything you ever dreamed of
Endless Mode, where you can keep mining forever, and ever, and ever
Challenge Mode, where you can put your overseer-abilities to the test
Leaderboards and Achievements to show everyone the size of your beard

This game is about dwarfs who dig to get coins to survive for the time given on different difficulties and modes one is endless mode which is the same as arcade(5,15,30 or 60 minutes) but without a time limit and challenges ,the game also has achievements. If you like high scores this is what you are looking for it has a global scoreboard. I would recommend it to people who like indie games.

I quite enjoyed this game, as it had good game mechanics and managed to amuse myself for quite some time. It felt like a blast from the past, with the graphics and atmosphere. Definitely a game that everybody should try at least once. The gameplay isn't too hard, though it can get difficult at times, but you'll enjoy yourself way too much to care. Either way, a decent game that should be played much more often by more people
Dwarfs?! Dwarf!Wizardino | Dec. 21, 2012 | See all Wizardino's reviews »
A very very very funny game. In Dwarfs?! the player, the leader of a dwarfs outpost must, obviously, digs to expand his realm. The more interesting feature of the game it's that the player cant directly control the dwarfs, but only put on the terrain some arrows to indicate them where to dig/go. In additions on the map there are some "black zone", and the player cant see what is hidden there (water, treasures, lava...): the only way to discover it it's to send a dwarf, but if you break the wrong wall and free lava in your tunnels...well it's not fun. Besides the "main" game mode there are some minigames like a Tower Defense sistem, and various challenges (for example dig XXXX tiles in 5 minutes) that adds variety to the game About me a Must Buy, expecially with this price.
Charming and great Replay Value!DonVercetti | Dec. 21, 2012 | See all DonVercetti's reviews »
I bought the game 'Dwarfs!?' here on Green Man Gaming in a sale, Just for the overall look and screenshots posted on the storepage here. Not knowing this game was so much fun. Whilst doing a game of this you'll be able to spend an hour or so in just one game by choosing for a 60 minute game and still have lots of fun doing so. The graphics style in this game is also very charming, It really fits the dwarven style with their underground systems. The different Challenges, Skirmish and Arcade mode really keep you on playing this game. There's even a fun Summer Carnival Pack, which is like an entire new kind of minigame within 'Dwarfs!?', Let your Dwarf throw axes at enemy targetplates, but don't hit the obstacles!
This is an absolutely great game to spend some of your spare time on. Atleast try out the Demo for it and give it a shot. Might just be your kind of game!
Great fun for such a little gamenairume | Dec. 8, 2012 | See all nairume's reviews »
Though people looking for a complex strategy game will be disappointed, Dwarfs!? is an engaging puzzle strategy fusion that puts players into the task of directing a colony of dwarfs as they expand, kill goblins, find treasure, and deal with an underground world that may very well be out to kill you. The interface that allows players to do all this is remarkably intuitive and simple, allowing even the most casual of player to jump right in and enjoy the game. With plenty of different game modes, many of which are short, sweet, and easy to replay, players will find that Dwarfs!? has a lot of legs for such a small game.
