The BIG List of Randomizers

I've been finding a bunch of video game randomizers lately, so I decided to compile them all in one big list, which has become quite extensive thanks to the help of the gaming community, in particular the ROMhacking.net community and the Randomizer Central Discord channel community.

If you ever find a video game randomizer not listed below, please let me know so I can add it!

LATEST UPDATE: 2017-12-31 - Changelog thread

Special randomizer types:

  • Bingo: Random objectives are set on a 5x5 grid, and the goal is to complete any row, column or diagonal as fast as possible. The grid is balanced so that any winning combination should take about the same amount of time to complete by an expert. Often used for speedrunning competitions.
  • Corruptor: Injects glitches into the game. Causes wacky effects, but may be prone to crashes.
  • Passive: No game modifications, just a set of randomized goals.

Excluded from the list:

  • Randomizers that has no major impact on gameplay other than its look and feel.
  • Utilities that only hack or corrupt generic computer files.
  • Generators that could be used for a tabletop RPG.
