Remember playing with Erector Sets and LEGOs as a kid? Thousands of ROBLOX players aged 7-18 are building fantastic creations online right now. But unlike bricks of old, when these kids are finished constructing their levels, they can invite thousands of other people to come play in them.
ROBLOX users have created a stunning assortment of games. There’s your basic cops-and-robbers style romps though brick cities, but there are also flight simulators, soccer matches, RPGs (both dice rolling and shoulder mounted), racing games, demolition derbies, paintball capture the flag, castle stormings – the list goes on. In fact, a new ROBLOX place is uploaded every 10 seconds. There are quite literally more games on ROBLOX than you could ever play.
For more fun, go to YouTube and search “ROBLOX”.
