Whether you have some money leftover in your steam wallet, or you want to buy as many games as you can with your steam gift card, we all want to get as many quality games as we can fit in our steam libraries.
Now, if you haven’t read our previous article on the best steam games under a dollar, I recommend checking out that article because there will be games listed on there that aren’t on here.
Part 2: https://cuboldgaming.com/best-steam-games-under-1/
Here are our Top 10 Best Steam Games that you can get right for a dollar or less.
Starting the list out, Vojo is something that caught my eye when I was doing my research. This title specifically, I feel will apply to pretty much everyone here, just due to the casual nature of the game.
The premise is really simple. Your goal is to obviously avoid the various structures as you fall through the course, while also trying to collect as many white cube points as you possibly can.
The colors, atmosphere, and music in the game create a really relaxing and chill game that you can hop into anytime you want.
As your playthrough gets going it can get pretty difficult when the screen starts to rotate but generally, it’s a pretty relaxed game that I think most everyone would be happy with purchasing.

Blackout Z: Slaughterhouse Edition
Blackout Z: Slaughterhouse Edition is an extremely fast-paced and action-packed top-down shooter game where you kill zombies and try your best to avoid dying.
The goal is to survive for as long as you can while focusing on picking up batteries and trying your best to get the highest score you can get.
It’s a pretty basic concept but I have to admit that I really enjoyed the mindless slaughtering aspect of the game where you can just enjoy the chaos and shoot in every direction.
The game doesn’t necessarily grant hours and hours of gameplay, even the devs say that the game is best to just boot up while waiting for another game to load up or download, so just keep that in mind.
The mechanics and overall gameplay are pretty solid and if you like arcady shooters that often warrant endless amounts of gore and chaos then I really recommend checking out Blackout Z.

NEONomicon is a minimalistic puzzle game that has an extremely unique and colorful level design that has a spin on the puzzle gameplay by having the player rely on various light sources around them.
Although this is a puzzle game, there are also enemies and hazardous elements that are added to the game that set it apart from other games that may be similar to this one.
I gotta admit that the game is actually quite difficult and depending on the type of person you are, you’ll either enjoy the experience and feel rewarded from it, or you’ll end up raging every time you play it.
Now, that shouldn’t scare any of you away because honestly, this game is great and I think it offers a lot of interesting gameplay elements for being a dollar, but just keep in mind that it can be challenging at times.
Overall I recommend checking out the game.

So, Orion is a bit of an interesting choice on this list and it’s a bit of a meme game but I feel it may be interesting to some of you, and hey why not just throw it in the list.
I wanna first say that the game seems to have a lot of sketchy stuff going on with reused assets and be re-released but regardless, let’s get into what the game is about.
Orion is a futuristic, slash, dinosaur, slash, FPS shooter game that places you and others in an almost Sandboxie type of gameplay where you need to survive the attacks from the dinosaurs.
You can play as dinosaurs and you can also play in a lot of different modes. You can play either PVE, PVP, or even PVPVE.
Depending on the playlist, you can play conquest, free-for-all, elimination modes, gun game, and a lot more.
You can play with up to either 5 or 10 other players depending on the game mode you are playing in.
The game, in terms of gameplay standards, is honestly pretty awful, but in a way, it’s meant to be that way. You run into a whole lot of glitches and weird things while playing but it’s kind of a part of the game at this point.
If you want a game to mess around with friends and you have really low standards for gameplay, Orion can be a decent option to look into.

Inertia is a first-person platforming game with inspiration from a lot of parkour and free-runner games.
The game has a lot of focus on movement and timing-based aspects and features over 48 developed levels to play.
This game is one of my favorite games on this list just because of the fluid movement and generally relaxed atmosphere that the game has. Plus the game has a ton of levels that I haven’t even scratched the surface of what the game has to offer.
Considering you are only paying 99 cents for the game, the game gives you a whole lot for the price.
It also supports controller input, so if you are into that, you have that option too.
If you are into platformers and the gameplay looks interesting to you, I highly recommend checking out Inertia.

If you’re a fan of some of the old fashion platformer games, you’ll most likely be really interested in checking out Toree 2.
The game is a 3D, low poly platforming game that is heavily inspired by some of the older platforming games from the 90s that have paved the way for gaming.
The gameplay is actually pretty fast and features 9 unique levels that all have hidden secrets and unlockables in each.
The game is extremely short though, so it’s important to keep that in mind. You can replay the game again because it does have a certain feel to it that kind of warrants being played through again, but it’s important to keep in mind that the game probably has around an hour of gameplay.
Overall that pretty much summarizes the game but ultimately I love the game and you get a bit of a nostalgic feeling when playing through it.

Barro F is a basic but fun racing game with various different maps and the ability to play co-op.
I actually don’t have all that much to say about this one because it’s actually pretty straightforward.
It’s a racing game with 10 tracks and the ability to have anywhere from 1 to 99 rounds in a game. You have easy-to-expert modes and the ability to play with one other play in offline co-op and I believe even over steam remote play but I’m not 100 percent on that.
You also have over 12 different car colors and styles and you can have up to 10 cars in any given match.
That’s pretty much a summary of the game, it’s a lot of fun and the racing feels great, although I guess I wouldn’t be the best person to determine that since I am terrible at racing games.
Anyway, yeah this is a great little racing game that I think is worth giving a try.

Need for Drive
When your mom tells you that you have Need for Speed at home…you get Need for Drive. So, Need for Drive is actually a mobile game ported over to PC and aside from the obvious bootleg name, the game isn’t all that bad.
The graphics are pretty good considering the price of the game and again, I am terrible at racing games, but from what I had played, I actually liked the driving in this game.
This game is also online multiplayer so that’s a huge plus and if you’ve ever played Need for Speed, it’s got a lot of those aspects to it.
You do various races with different cars, you avoid cops, you try and beat your own score, you know, all that good stuff.
I will say that the game kinda disappoints in that a lot of stuff is behind a paywall but I mean, it was a mobile game.
Overall it’s not a bad game but it’s also not a great game, regardless, I recommend checking it out.

I really tried to not add any repeats in this list but I mean, C’mon, it’s Bean Battles. If you end up watching part 1 of this list, which I recommend watching and I’ll link it in the description, Bean Battles were mentioned and I just had to add it to this list too.
This game has been such a huge part of our community and shows up countless times in our articles and for good reason.
The game is technically a battle royal but it feels more like a team deathmatch-styled game.
Essentially, you play as beans and your goal is to avoid the closing circle and kill all other beans to come out on top as the winner.
Honestly, this game is so much fun and I sweat so hard in this game. Everyone that plays automatically becomes try-hard because it’s just got that competitive nature to it.
I love this game and it’s a very important game to the Cubold Gaming crew and our community, so honestly, if for all else, I recommend getting Bean Battles.

Peekaboo Lite is a less expensive and slightly more content-restricted version of the Peekaboo full game but offers the same fun gameplay and playstyle.
The game is a cross-platform Hide & Seek online game that divides the players into two separate teams. One team is the props, in which you’ll want to transform into various props around the map to blend in, and the other team is the hunters, where your job is to kill the players disguised as props before the timer ends.
If you’ve ever played prop hunt in Gmod or a lot of other games actually, this game is dedicated to that game mode and it does it really well actually.
I’ve played and streamed the full version of Peekaboo and I really like the game.
I will say that getting this with friends makes the experience 10 times better so I really recommend trying to get some others to get the game with you but if not, you should be able to find some other lobbies online to join into.
The game is a ton of fun and can become really addictive so overall I recommend checking out Peekaboo Lite.
