Roblox is like a game store where users can find their favorite games and play them. Roblox is not a game itself, but a platform for users to enjoy games made by others. In a way, it resembles the famous gaming platform Steam, where many games are available.
Compared to traditional gaming platforms or distribution platforms like Steam, Roblox is different because its games are created entirely by players. The best part about having a Roblox account is not only playing, but making it your own. In other words, Roblox Corporation does not make these games, but Roblox users do. More than 20 million games have been published on the platform, according to the official website.
But having a massive user base doesn’t protect a platform from bugs. Recently, many players have reported that their Roblox is not working. But, there are some simple things you can do to fix it. Read on to find out.
