SharkBite is a game for people who love sailing. As the name suggests, the game’s primary focus is a Shark that will try its best to attack and eat the player. The game is all about sea survival. It is a sea survival game where you will have to think and try your best strategies to overcome the challenges that come your way. 

Defending yourself from the shark requires proper use of the weapons you have at your disposal; it will need some getting some used to.

Once you learn the timing, dealing with the shark will become less tense. SharkBite has proven to be quite terrifying for the young audience of Roblox, and that’s why they love it.

The most remarkable thing about the game is that the AI doesn’t control the shark. Instead, another player takes control of it. That adds so much to the tension of the game and also makes the game way more playable. Players can get good as the shark and quickly eliminate every opponent. It is a fun, lighthearted player-versus-player Roblox game.

If you’re a mirror’s edge fan like me, this roblox game is right up your alley! Runners Path is a first person Roblox game inspired by Mirror’s Edge. There are various levels that you can explore with friends freely. You can also compete in time trials against friends. If you’ve always wondered what multiplayer Mirror’s Edge would look like… here it is.

I personally like the simplicity of the game, it’s a roblox game I can switch my brain off, let some music run in the background as I parkour through the various levels the game has. The levels act as special puzzles as well allowing for use of creativity and your awareness within the moment to moment gameplay.

Natural Disaster Survival

Natural Disaster Survival

Some might say Natural Disaster Survival is the original Fall Guys. Natural Disaster Survival or NDS for short is a survival game where you and an entire server of around 30 players spawn into a level to survive what nature has in store.

The objective is simple, survive as long as you can by running around avoiding lightning, snowstorms the rain, fire, asteroids and more! NDS is a jolly good time with friends as you see the number of player quickly dwindle. One of my favorite disasters in the game is “Acid Rain”.

Yes you heard that right… acid rain. Players not in shelter start getting damaged, if you can’t find shelter in time, you die. Being near or touching an area affected by these acid droplets can cause damage as well. Natural Disaster Survival has over 1.5 Billion visits to date.

If you’ve never played a Roblox game, we recommend you give it a try. The sheer number of variety in games and genres is enough to be worthy of a quick look. We hope some of the games we’ve highlighted has peaked your interested in the platform.

Roblox is a great platform for not only playing games, but creating games as well. If you’ve always fancied creating a video game but never had the know-how of using these pesky and complicated game engines like Unreal or Unity, then Roblox is the way to go! Who knows, the next Roblox hit could be created by you!
