If you have ever had a great idea for a video game and wish you knew how to code to make it a reality you will definitely want to check out Roblox. In this sandbox game contains a powerful game design engine that will allow you to create your own video game worlds in no time at. Players can also create virtual items using what are called bricks which work sorta like Legos.

Roblox has its own in-game programming language that is easy to learn and will allow you to design your own environment and program your own games in which you are really only limited by your imagination. The game is wildly successful and has over 60 million active users and is rated as the #1 online game for teenagers.  

Roblox has a strong player-driven economy where you can buy and sell virtual items by using the in-game currency Robux. With a strong emphasis on multiplayer Roblox allows you to create your own groups as well as join other players. This helps to create a sense of community with the groups you decide to play with and get to know.

With a 4.5 out of 5-star rating on Google Play and over three and a half million reviews, you’re only limited by your imagination to interact, create and play with one of the largest concentration of other gamers on the planet. And did I mention that there are countless 3D worlds created by the developer and players alike?

Roblox is free-to-play but does contain in-app purchases for the many upgrades and additional features to be unlocked. One of the neatest things about Roblox is it so much more than just a game it’s like an entire universe waiting to be explored with the boundaries set only by the player’s imagination. With tons of user-generated content, the replay value is through the roof. The real magic comes from the focus on building and creativity combined with a strong sense of community with other players.

Targeted to the 13 to 18-year-old age range this is a game for kids to hang out and have fun. Of course, if you’re older than this there’s no rule stating you can’t join in and have some fun also. So if you are a burned out Minecraft junkie or just have a kid looking for something new to play Roblox is a sure-fire bet too many hours of endless entertainment like no other.
