Roblox offers a platform to design, build, and then play your own games. It uses visual menus within the Roblox Studio to let you make stunning game creations, with the possibilities taken even further when you use your own programming code.
However, it’s not always that easy to come up with original game ideas for Roblox. After all, there are millions of users and thousands of games that have already been created. But that doesn’t mean you can’t create something completely unique yourself with a little bit of encouragement.
And even if it’s not a unique Roblox game idea, there no harm in taking inspiration from something another person has already done. You can either make a game idea better, or simply put a different angle on it to create something completely new.
If you are a beginner to Roblox and want to get started in designing your own games, then the short Roblox game ideas list below should help to get you started and thinking for yourself.
Good game ideas for Roblox beginners
We trawled the Internet to find some of the best Roblox game ideas that we could to give you the inspiration you need to create something unique and engaging.
Where possible we have credited the ideas with a link to the original idea generator.
1. Zombie City Escape idea
In this game idea for Roblox you are a family living in a city overtaken by zombies. You need to find a car before the zombies get you and then try to escape the city through the roads. The roads will be blocked with abandoned cars, obstacles, and of course loads of zombies trying to get you whilst you escape the quarantined city.
2. Vehicle Battle Royale game idea
This Roblox game idea is for a player versus player vehicle warfare battle, in a Battle Royale style. It’s a strategy game where players get behind the controls of various vehicles to eliminate each other’s vehicles and bases. Once both a player’s vehicle and operating base has been destroyed, that player has been eliminated for the round. Rounds last for 20 minutes each (view idea source).
3. Underwater Tycoon game idea
Based on those popular tycoon games, but this is a more unique 2-player tycoon idea that could be based underwater. All the tycoons start off in a bubble on the seafloor and once you buy submarines and stuff you can then explore the sea around it for coins and other items.
4. Team-Based Pong game idea
Two or more teams fight in a neon-filled arena for world domination in the Pong game. As the teams advance, they are able to win upgrades; for example, wider paddles, slower balls, and extra lives. If you don’t know what Pong is, check out this explainer on YouTube.
How to come up with Roblox game ideas for beginners
The best game ideas for Roblox will be one that you come up with by yourself. Here are some ways in which you can get your creative ideas flowing:
- Play the Roblox games you enjoy: Then think about what it is about this game that you like. Is there any way in which you could improve this concept? It’s much easier to come up with good Roblox game ideas when you’re designing something you will want to play yourself.
- Ask your friends what they like: If you have friends into computer games, find out what it is that they like to play. This can be the best way to get game idea inspiration, and you will often be given ideas you would never have thought of yourself.
- Plan your game: Once you have settled on an idea, think about properly planning it to include the target audience, build style, and then how the player will be able to move through the game and get rewards for progressing.
Our Roblox coding lessons
And of course, you need to understand how to create games using the Roblox Studio. This is where Roblox coding lessons can help… at FunTech we’ve been running kids’ coding lessons for many years now and have an outstanding reputation.
Roblox Game Maker (ages 9 to 12)
These Roblox programming lessons start off with your child setting up a project with Roblox Studio. They will then be virtually tasked in designing an obstacle course filled with moving platforms, explosive hazards, and more!
Our tutors will also introduce them to more advanced programming concepts such as variables. These lessons can be transferred to any programming language.
The Roblox coding lessons end with your child publishing their game then challenge classmates to a kart racing game. Whose terrain will be the most challenging? Which kart has the most realistic design? Everyone will have to play each other’s game to find out.
We offer online lessons or physical classes at a range of locations. Click a link below to find out more.
How Roblox can help teach kids
We believe that Roblox is a fantastic introduction to coding and video game design and can engage kid’s brains both creatively and logically. Once kids understand basic coding, computers and other machinery suddenly become a lot easier to understand.
For instance, it could lead on to them building their own websites, or even creating a popular video game in Roblox played by millions of kids the world over.
Roblox can teach kids how to:
- Be more creative.
- Be leaders and team players.
- Program and code their own Roblox games.
- Improve their overall computing skills.
- Improve their approach to logical thinking.
You can read more about how Roblox can be educational in our recent guide to Roblox teaching kids.
