Roblox is a video game platform with hundreds of mini games and millions of users daily. Since this is an interest of ours, we decided to play a few games and rate them.
The first game we will be reviewing is “Survive the Killer”. This is a thrilling game where one person is randomly chosen to be the killer. The rest of the players have a mission to hide from the killer, help to save other players, and make it out of the round alive.
This is one of our personal favorite games on the Roblox app. It has a gripping element that keeps players on their toes and it also has a horror element to it.
In this game, there is a timer at the top of the screen and once the timer gets down to one more minute, the exits open. At this point, the killer can see where all the players are and it is their last chance to kill any of the players who they haven’t found yet. It is a race to the finish and either you win or the killer wins.
We rate this game a 10/10 because it is very exciting and fun.
“Natural Disaster” is another game where players are put in a simulation where they have to survive a natural disaster. Some of the disasters include acid rain, tornados, floods, fires, and volcanoes. The game announces which of the disasters will happen and the disaster begins soon after.
Players have the task of surviving and have limited health. If the health declines all the way and reaches zero, the player will be eliminated from the round. The way to win is by surviving the whole round and escaping to safety from the natural disaster.
This game is exciting because the players don’t know which disaster will come when the round starts and they have to figure out different ways to survive based on the disaster.
We would rate this game an 8/10 because some of the rounds are easier than others and you don’t have to do much to win, and we wish it was a bit more challenging.
Another game we are reviewing is “Hungry Nora”. This game is based off of the characters in the show ‘Dora the Explorer’, just under different names. In this game, the player’s goal is to collect the money from the characters and return to the safe zone without the characters catching you.
This game is thrilling because as soon as you take the money from one of the characters, they start chasing after you.
We rate this game a 7/10 because it is a simple game and is easy to understand, but other than collecting money, there is not really another point.
“Flee the Facility” is a Roblox game that was largely influenced by a different video game: “Dead by Daylight”. It’s one of the platform’s most played games since its creation in 2017. The main goal is for survivors to escape a map while evading the Beast, who captures and freezes the survivors into Freeze Pods.
To escape, the Survivors must hack a specific set of computers to unlock the Exit Doors. If a survivor is kidnapped by the Beast, the other survivors in the game can free them from the pods before the timer runs out and they’re completely frozen.
Once a round ends, the players are rewarded with XP or experience points at the end of each round, which can be used to purchase crates which provide alternative skins for hammers and jewels.
We would rate this game a 10/10 because we really enjoyed how intense it was and liked how it kept us on our feet.
The next game we’re going to review is “Rainbow Friends”. This is a multiplayer horror game consisting of 5 chapters. The first chapter opens with a group of players going on a field trip to an amusement park. The bus veers off the path and crashes when an unidentified person flips the directional sign. The players are then hauled away and sent to a mysterious facility, where they must gather items every night while evading the monsters that dwell there.
The players who have made it through each of the five nights are brought back to a safe room and given a 30 second debrief period before the next chapter.
We would rate this game an 8/10 because it was enjoyable but we wish it was more difficult to make it through each night.
The last game we are going to review is “Adopt Me”. This is a role-playing game in which you can design a home and raise a family.
When the game was first released, you could start off as either a parent or a child and then build your family from there. Since then, the game has changed and improved, and its main focus is now the role of a pet owner who can trade pets with other players.
Since its debut in 2017, this game has consistently ranked among the most played on Roblox.
We would rate this game a 2/10 because it doesn’t cater to our interests in games, but we would understand why younger children enjoy playing it.
