Dwarfs is an Arcade/Strategy game for PC and Xbox360 where you are put in the middle of a vast, underground playfield. The goal of the game is to explore the randomly generated map as much as possible, while at the same time protecting your Town Hall from harm, such as water floods, lava or hostile creatures.
What makes this game unique and interesting is that your greatest asset is also your greatest threat: the Digging Dwarfs. While you need them to explore the dungeon and increase your score, their random behavior is the source of most your troubles. Taking control of them is easy, but costs gold, so you have to be careful with your choices! Pointing a Dwarf towards those juicy minerals might look tempting, but what if you need that gold to stop lava later on? In Dwarfs, there is a constant flow of risk/reward decision making.
Dwarfs! was awarded “Pwnage Award” at Gotland Game Awards 2010, and went on to win Game of the Year at the Swedish Game Awards 2010.
