Roblox brings its user-creation tool of the same name to iPhone and iPad.
Everyone loves building structures but Roblox is capitalizing on people who love to build games. Its online gaming network already has already grown into the millions of players.
Roblox has become a testing ground where kids and teens build their own video games and let others play them. The virtual world has become a way for kids to understand physics, learn coding, and build their own games using Lego-like building blocks.
Roblox, a family-friendly entertainment site that allows kids to build their own 3D game worlds, says players created 5.4 million games in 2011 — a 109 percent year-over-year increase from 2010 — demonstrating enormous growth in user-generated online games in the past year.
Roblox is a thriving web-based virtual world where kids can create building-block creations in Leg0-like styles. It is far more successful than other virtual worlds, and 18-year-old Luke “Stickmaster Luke” Weber is one of the reasons for that.
Roblox, a kids virtual world that has grown to 5.7 million monthly unique visitors, raised $4 million in venture funding today.
