Roblox is an online sandbox game with the tools to let users create their own gaming worlds, complete with physics, weapons, and environments using consumer-level creation tools. There’s a website, too, which uses a youtube-like portal interface to help players publish their games easily, and find other games and worlds to play in. The iOS version is taking off, said CEO David Baszucki, and becoming a core part of the company strategy for cross-platform gaming, as all versions of the game have the same code base.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
User-generated MMO game creation engine, Roblox, is now available as a universal app on iOS, allowing iPhone and iPad users to create games together and share with their friends in the Roblox community. It’s like Minecraft for game creators, and it’s free in the App Store now.
With cross-platform compatibility, ROBLOX Mobile users join game servers populated with other iOS device users and with players of the ROBLOX desktop application (which is available for free on both PC and Mac). This connects Web and mobile ROBLOX users in one shared virtual world.
ROBLOX’s online community offers a productive environment for users to spend free time, as they develop programming, promotional, and entrepreneurial skills. Builders can use ROBLOX Studio, a 3D editor, to model anything they can imagine, constructing these models out of virtual blocks. These creations can then be published to the ROBLOX website and shared with other builders. Many creators have built entire virtual worlds out of components published by the ROBLOX community.
