Let’s go through the five most popular games.
MeepCity was released in 2016 by a developer named Alex Binello (his in-game nick is Alexnewtron), and it was the first Roblox game that got more than 1 billion visits. MeepCity is all about interaction with other players. You can play different games, earn coins, or customize your house. Probably the biggest reason why the game is so popular is that Alex still plays MeepCity and improve the game based on community feedback.
The Jailbreak is so popular that the Roblox community has voted it as the “Game I’ve spent the most hours playing” in the 2019 Bloxy Awards. Jailbreak is a proven concept with roots in Counter-Strike 1.6. So, it’s no surprise it’s one of the most popular games on Roblox as well. In this game, you can do a robbery, or be on the other side of law and try to stop criminals. You can also team up with your friends to enjoy the game even more with huge heists. There are two factions in the game – criminals and cops. As a criminal, you try to escape from prison. When you play as a cop, you are trying to prevent criminals from escaping. Alex Balfanz has developed Jailbreak in 2017, and it was an immediate success.
Adopt Me! was an immediate success that already broke some outstanding goals — for example, 500 000 people playing the game simultaneously. That is very close to AAA games like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike and others. What makes this game so unique? It is simple. You can adopt pets. This single feature brought this amount of players. But you can do much more in the game. For example, you can design your own home, explore Adoption Island, and of course, adopt your pet.
Are you all in fashion? Do you like to dress up every day and amaze your friends with your outfits? Then the Royale High game is right for you! You can show your clothing to tens of thousands of people that are playing simultaneously. You can make new friends and explore new places. The game is also updated very frequently, so it never gets boring.
Murder Mystery 2
The gameplay of Murder Mystery 2 is straightforward. At the beginning of each round, you are assigned a role. Innocents must run and hide from the murdered, but they can also use their skills to expose the Murderer. Then we have Sherrif, who works with Innocents, and he is also the only one who can stop the Murderer. And Murderer has to kill everyone. Even the game is very simple; it already has millions of players and is very popular.
