It's nearly Halloween again, which means it's time to jump into some of the scariest and best horror games in Roblox.

Roblox was released back in 2006 and continues to get bigger and bigger as the years go by - there isn't much else out there that allows you to create your own games in the way that this does.

The choices of what you can make and play are endless, and if you love a horror game, there will be something in Roblox that suits your tastes to a tee.

So, with that in mind, we have put together a list of some of the best scary Roblox games out there at the moment. Are you brave enough to try them all?

Alone in a Dark House

A classic horror setup, this game surprisingly finds you alone in a dark house, collecting clues to hunt down a murderer. Complete with multiple endings, plenty of secrets, and truly atmospheric lighting, this is a great game in its own right. It's best played alone for the full effect, or you can play with up to 20 other players if needs be.

With blood present and a generally unsettling tone, this game is probably best for teenagers and pre-teens as opposed to the younger ones.

Bear Alpha

A nice simple premise with this one: one user plays as the killer bear who has to kill the other players within five minutes. The bear can move slightly faster, but the survivors can use weapons to fight back, making the game nicely balanced. Not advised for children still fond of teddy bears – the game's environments alone are spooky enough, before we even get to the killer bear.

Horror Elevator

Somewhat reminiscent of The Cabin In The Woods, Horror Elevator puts you in a lift that randomly stops at different floors, each offering a different horror scenario. Again, one for the older kids – there's no knowing which monster will appear each time.

Piggy

In this Peppa Pig inspired survival horror game, George Pig has gone missing and it is quite a mystery what happened to him. You play as the police officer investigating but you are soon knocked out by a pig and are then faced with escaping a room before your bacon is fried. To make things worse, the police station soon gets infiltrated by a monster and the only two people left are you and officer Doggy.

Dead Silence

Based on the 2007 film, this fan-favourite sees you discover a body next to a ventriloquist doll, with the only clue a note reading "Mary Shaw". One of the few first-person scary games on this list, Dead Silence offers a cinema-level narrative as you unravel the mystery. Probably another one for the older kids – the murder itself is a tad gruesome.

Breaking Point

It may be one of the most popular games on Roblox now, but Breaking Point was actually banned entirely at one time. The aim here is to be the last person standing in a murder mystery type experience - and it is way more addictive than we expected it to be.

The Mirror

It may be single-player, but is all the scarier for it. The Mirror sees you completing an obstacle course with nothing but your own reflection. Is your mind playing tricks on you or is it the mirror? We'd say this one is fine for all ages, but just the right amount of spooky.

A Wolf or Other

Similar to the popular Werewolf party game, A Wolf or Other sees you in one of three camps: an innocent, hunter, or werewolf. It's up to the innocents to identify the werewolf so the hunter can kill him, before it's a full moon and it's too late. As more of a party game than a straight-up horror, this one is suitable for younger players.

Murder Mystery 2

Very similar to A Wolf or Other but going for a good old-fashioned murderer rather than a werewolf, Murder Mystery is the classic dinner party mafia game. Much like Among Us, the murderer has to be identified by the innocents. There are three modes, too, Casual, Hardcore, and Assassin, for those who like a challenge. With no supernatural elements at all, this might be more suitable for those a bit younger.

Zombie Attack

Basically a PG edition of Call of Duty: Zombies, Zombie Attack sees you fight off increasingly tougher waves of zombies, unlocking better weapons as you go. There are a few twists, however, including being able to respawn as a zombie if you get killed. While a fun game, it doesn't exactly boast the most realistic graphics, so somewhat younger children may well get to try this one out.

Nightmare Mines

Nightmare Mines combines the zombie waves with puzzles, creating a unique spooky experience. It's not overly scary either, meaning this could be one for most of the family. Will you escape the Nightmare Mines? You'll only find out if you play it.

Project Lazarus: Zombies

This one is a clear homage to Call of Duty: Zombies, offering a round-based survival mode complete with barricades, power-ups, and points to buy weapons and obstacles. There are a few blood animations on this one, so younger kids may wish to stick to Zombie Attack.
