While Minecraft competitor Roblox isn’t as popular as Minecraft, that doesn’t mean that the game isn’t a real threat to it.

Roblox is a massive multiplayer online game created with children and teenagers between 8 and 18 years old in mind. In this game, you are able to create your own virtual world where others players can enter and socialize within the blocks of varied colors, sizes, and shapes. In addition, the game in Roblox can be scripted using Lua 5.1, allowing you to create different in-game scenarios. Speaking of which, if you encounter issues with Roblox, here’s how to fix them.

Robux is a virtual currency that the company is using in order to gain revenue from this game. The players can purchase Robux with real money which they can use to get Builder’s Club access, a status that gives some virtual benefits to the gamers. In other words, Roblox is a FREE game, which is not the case for Minecraft.

As you can see, aside from the virtual currency that can be purchased with real money, Roblox is quite similar to Minecraft. However, Roblox is also focusing more on creating games as many users have already created millions of games accessible for free from their website or from their mobile or desktop apps. These games are usually for multiplayer and include racing, combat, or paintball.

We are not sure yet why Microsoft is allowing Roblox onto its Windows Store as this could tempt many Minecraft fans into testing out this game. In other words, Minecraft might actually lose user because of this addition.
