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
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.
