Roblox Review: The Curious Case Of A Mobile Game
Roblox is an MMO mobile game targeted at children where players are able to create their own virtual worlds so that other players can join and play with them; the games can be scripted to contain specific events and scenarios which can lead to the creation of unique worlds and game types. The sandbox game was released for all mobile device platforms, some games work with VR and other games are even available through the Xbox One.
The graphics for Roblox are relatively nice and are styled in a fashion similar to Lego; the player avatar is also based on classic Lego character models however they are highly customizable due to the incredibly large catalog that's in the game. The Builders Club is the VIP subscription for this game; there are several tiers to it however, they offer mostly the same content. One of the most advantageous things about this is the ability to create and sell items in the game, doing this provides the player with more Robux they can use to get in-game items. Players in the Builders Club are also able to place advertisements in their games if they wish; being a member also allows the player to create more worlds which are called "Places". Every player starts with their own Place which is edited and explored; exploring the worlds is very simple as the game has a player friendly UI. There's an on-screen joystick to control the avatar and also a jump button with an easy way to access the in-game chat. When creating a new Place, there are several templates to select from such as a City and one for Racing. These templates are also focused on specific game modes which are great starting points for new designers; players can also use models and items created by other players who have uploaded them for public use. Each Place can be heavily customized with player created audio, meshes and also plugins. Some player created items need to be bought before they can be used when creating a new Place; many of these items are available for free and can be used in any player created Place.
The game is available on all mobile devices, web browsers and also the Xbox One. This free-to-play game was developed by the Roblox Corporation who first released the game in 2006. After creating a Roblox account, the player has full access to the game and can immediately join a server, start creating their own content or customize their avatar and profile. Joining a game is simple, there are a wide number of servers available and players can create their own VIP servers to play with friends or other players; up to 12 players can be on a server at once and each game has a variety of servers that are open for all players to join. Joining the Builders Club and paying a monthly subscription does provide the player with more content such as the ability to sell items to other players and trade; this is a big advantage for players who are interested in buying items from the catalog regularly as it provides players with a steady income of Robux. Players are able to write an "About" section on their profile page; it allows them to add a small section about themselves which other players can view. This can be very useful for listing any game related details such if they're a creator or if they're in a group.
There are a huge amount of clothing options in the game and more are still being added by the developers. In addition to this, all members of the Builders Club are able to create and sell their own items of clothing and collectibles. Purchasing new items or collectibles requires Robux which is the premium currency in the game and is very expensive to purchase; Robux can also be gained by playing the game however they're provided in much smaller amounts. Some items in the game are free to 'purchase' and wear. There is no tutorial for character customization however and it can take some time to find a way to actually change clothing and accessories; this can be done through a small drop down menu at the top of the screen where the player needs to manually add and remove items.
Replay Value 8/10
There are thousands of player-created Places available to explore and play at any moment; there are a wide variety of game genres such as horror, sports and FPS. Many of these are based on popular culture items such as Pokemon, Five Nights at Freddy's, Hunger Games and The Sims. Tycoon and action games are very popular however, the RPG and horror genres are also relatively strong. Each Place can be rated up or down which impacts the search ranking and players can favorite them to find them again easier; they also have an active leaderboard that displays the top players that have played on that server. Some Places have a store where players can purchase plugins and items to use for that specific Place. Roblox gives players the unique ability to create and share player-created game modes; it means that the game is filled to the brim with content and players are constantly making new Places. There is no tutorial for the game which does make it a little bit awkward for new players but most of the mechanics are relatively simple to learn.
Roblox is an MMO game-game platform hybrid where players are able to create their own virtual world and game modes which are open to other players; players can join servers for specific games at any time and are able to communicate with the other players on the server. Roblox is oriented towards children and has several measures in place to help protect younger players. However, adults can also play the game and it is possible for them to interact quite a bit in the game through the chat in each instance.Collapse
