Roblox is a wildly popular game creation system developed by the Roblox Corporation.
Roblox isn’t so much a game as it is a platform people can use to make their games, similar to Rec Room.
You can program games, and I find the coolest is that you can also log in and play games created by others. This increases the playability of this game tremendously.
Roblox was released for PC on September 1, 2006, and it came out on other platforms many years later as it gained popularity.
So is Roblox cross-platform?
Yes, Roblox is cross-platform compatible, meaning you can crossplay Roblox between Microsoft Windows, macOS, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Android, and iOS.

As I mentioned in the introduction, Roblox is a game creation tool where you can play many different types of games that users have created.
Since this is a tool for you to make your games, there isn’t going to be an official Roblox story mode. However, there are many games that you can play in Roblox that have their own stories.
Just remember that the quality of the games will vary wildly, as I’ll discuss a bit more below.
People use Roblox to make different types of games in various genres. You might play a platformer game one moment and then check out a stealth-based shooting experience the next.
Users have made racing games, fighting games, and many other types of games from various genres.
This means that playing Roblox has the potential to be a very diverse experience, but you should remember that the majority of people making these little games lack experience. But then again, some of the games people have created are VERY high quality!
Your time with Roblox can be spent playing various user-created games or making your own games. If you’re a creative individual, you’ll love Roblox’s game-creation aspects.
