What is Roblox and how is it different

Roblox is a free online and social multiplayer game. Users can shape their worlds with pieces of different sizes and materials. It is something very similar to creating your worlds and video games with Lego pieces, and then you can share your creations with other users. Thus, you can dedicate yourself to playing the games created by others as well as your own.

These games that are created are not all the same. Roblox is only the base on which to make the creations, but these can be totally different video games with different purposes and mechanics. You can find from parkour tests to adventures with dungeons in which you have to kill monsters, even going through survival games.

And this is precisely one of the big differences with respect to Minecraft and other different titles. Instead of just being a sandbox in which to create, but always with the same mechanics and in the same world, in Roblox, you can have the feeling of playing completely different types of games within yourself.

Another difference is in the design of the characters. In Minecraft, it’s all pixelated and there’s hardly any flexibility to customize characters, while in Roblox you can wear different clothes, accessories, facial expressions, and even different body types with much more defined textures.

The world creation tool is separate from the game and is called Roblox Studio. It serves you with a relatively simple interface and enough advanced tools to create a world and type of game at your whim. In it, even the youngest can begin to play with their first notions of programming to adapt the functions of each piece.

As an incentive for the creators, they get a part of the profits generated by the universes they create within the game. Despite this, it is a game focused on young audiences, and its developers assure that it is an educational platform based on the theory of “constructionism”, which maintains that children learn better in active roles of design and construction and that this learning is accelerated in public communities.

Roblox is available on just about every platform you can think of, with versions for PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Amazon Devices, Xbox One, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive, with cross-play options. It has its own virtual currency and a micropayment system with which to acquire new customization elements.

As we have told you before, Roblox is divided into two parts. On the one hand, you have the Player, which is the game player, and on the other a Roblox Studio that is used to create your own games based on the base that this platform offers you.

The first step when you enter Roblox Studio is to choose the base you want to use to create your game. By default, they will show you all of them, but you can also organize them by theme or by game mechanics.

And once you have chosen your base, now you only have to spend the time you need to create your game. In this, everything depends on what you want to do, although in the left column you will have a link that will take you to the creation guides in case you need a little help.
