What is Roblox?
Roblox is not a game itself- instead it's a space where kids can develop or play millions of 3D online games made by other developers. As just one example, Adopt Me!, a pet simulation game where kids purchase and take care of animals, had over 1.6 million concurrent players in April 2020.
Today Roblox is available to download as an Android and Ios app, and is listed as 12+ with Parental Guidance advised. Within the app, users are encouraged to chat, create, collaborate, build, interact, and more. Kids and their friends can also just gather or explore other users' creations.
