Roblox. Read The Review!
Roblox is more than a game, it’s a platform that combines a social network for players, an SDK and hosting for developers, and a billing system for all.
We Have Something in Common
The idea of Roblox is simple: create a great variety of games with as much in common as can be. So, as you register, you get your avatar and create a nickname to use in any Roblox game. As you upgrade, you earn Robux – the in-game currency that can buy you more items to customize your avatar.
The core app serves as a launcher, offering you countless thousands of games. Your user profile is not the only thing they share; they also feature unified controls. It’s no wheel reinvented: they offer a joystick in the left lower corner, an area for moving the camera in the right part of the screen, and buttons for jumping, crouching, shooting, interacting with items, and other specific actions. This makes both playing and developing new games easier.
Rude and Good
While the engine offers limited possibilities as for visuals, the developers sometimes make masterpieces out of it. None of them is an eye-candy, but the best of these games win when it comes to exciting gameplay.
