Some Fun Online Building Games Like ROBLOX

ROBLOX (stylized as RŌBLOX) is a brilliant creation specially made for the age group of 8-18. Although a creative building game like that cannot have an age limit, it’s fun even for adults trying out all their skills and imaginations they have created over the years! Apart from the millions of plots in the game that you can play, you can almost build anything and everything! Your dream house, a fight arena, you can fly over places in your plane, go camping with your friends, go for a beach party, make a crazy castle, go for joy rides, build a complete city, et al! Just use your imagination, and you can be whatever you want, wherever you want, and however you want!

ROBLOX uses a sandboxed edition of Lua 5.1 to let you create your own world of imaginations. It is compatible with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, iPad 2+, iPhone 4+, iPod touch 5th generation, and Android.

It is an amazing game, but we all know the problem with games, don’t we? No matter how crazy good they are, at one point of time we need a change! So, what next? Well, there is always a way out! There are several free online building games like ROBLOX in 3D and 2D, which are fun to play and learn. So now, let’s check some more popular games that are alternatives to ROBLOX!

ROBLOX Alternatives

Minecraft

This game allows you to create your imaginative world with textured cubes in a 3D, procedurally generated world (where content is generated algorithmically rather than manually). You can build, explore, gather resources and craft, and get into the combat mode. There are several modes available other than combat―survival mode, creative mode, and adventure mode. In the survival mode, the player is supposed to gather resources to build his structures while saving his health. In the creative mode, the player gets access to flying and unlimited resources for building. In the adventure mode, players can play maps that other players have created.

– Available for Windows, OS X, Linux, Java platform, Java applet, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Raspberry Pi, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

Garry’s Mod

This is another game similar to ROBLOX, although it doesn’t have a game plan. There are no objectives and no missions to be solved. The players are given complete freedom to do whatever they wish to. They can manipulate furniture and props. The extra feature of this 3D game is that it gives the player two guns. One is the physics gun, and the other is the tool gun. With the physics gun, you can pick, adjust, and freeze the objects in place. The tool gun is a multipurpose gun with which various tasks can be performed.

– Available for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux.

Terraria

This is a 2D building game, which gives you freedom to build yourself a city of your own or fight for survival in a combat. The player has three basic amenities with him. A pickax for mining, a shortsword for combat, and an ax for woodcutting.

– Available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Network, Xbox 360, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Vita, Windows Phone, Android, iOS, PlayStation 4, Xbox, One, Kindle Fire.

Blockyard

This game stands out from the rest, as its basic aim is to build rather than concentrate on a player vs. player competition. There are several motors, axles, and blocks with which you can make tanks, catapults, and so much more!

– Available for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.

Cubelands

Cubelands is one more game that is similar to ROBLOX. It is an online multiplayer building game as well as downloadable! You can build your ideas and everything else that you can build with cubes, and put it up for the whole Cubelands community to see.
