An old battle goes between the two popular gaming classics. If you want to play one but haven’t decided which one yet, we are here to convince you.
We will be comparing those games based on a few criteria that we found relevant.
Minecraft used to be a free-to-play title, but it no longer has that status because it has expanded so much that developers need serious resources to keep updating and improving it.
The PC version of Minecraft costs $26.99. It is also available for the Xbox One for $19.99 and Nintendo Switch for $29.99.
On the other side, Roblox has launched way ahead of Minecraft, and it is still completely free.
However, some microtransactions might feel inconvenient at the time.
Minecraft was ported to various platforms since it was released in an alpha stage in 2009.
It rose to fame in PC form on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
It was soon ported to smartphones and consoles, both current-generation and past-generation.
Roblox, however, wasn’t ported to as many platforms. It started on PC, got ported to a mobile version, and then was ported to the Xbox One only.
You are most likely interested in the experience created by the games, and this is where it gets exciting.
Graphics are dull and promote simplicity in the case of both games.
Minecraft is based on building and destroying blocks to shape the world around the player.
Three modes allow you to change the way you play fundamentally:
Survival: Players have to gather the materials required to survive and gain experience.
Creative: Players get infinite resources that can be destroyed straight away.
Adventure mode: Players get to interact with buttons and levers to interact with in-game creatures.
Roblox, on the other hand, is far more customizable since it offers players the possibility of building not only the game’s world but its game modes too.
It offers a broader collection of minigames than Minecraft, like Jailbreak, Work at a Pizza Place, Natural Disaster Survival, Theme Park Tycoon 2, and millions more.
The choice is yours. Do you want to go with Minecraft’s linear style, or do you want to experience the diversity of Roblox?
