The best Roblox games to play in 2024

The best games within the game.

Update: We added more Roblox games to our best-of list to give you even more recommendations to check out in 2024!

Roblox has been around for 18 years, but in 2024 is more popular than ever before. In that time, hundreds of awesome games have been created by professional and amateur developers alike, so it's time to talk about the best Roblox games.

With a player base that's going as strong as ever thanks to continued growth and huge collabs, there's no end in sight for this free-to-play game creating platform. But now is an excellent time to sample some of the best user-created games Roblox has to offer.

Whether you're in the mood for collecting pets in Pet Simulator X, going on an anime-themed adventure in Blox Fruits, or jumping out of your skin with horror games like Murder Mystery 2, here are the best Roblox games to play right now.

Best Roblox games

At the time of writing, there are over 50 million games on Roblox. This list of some of the top games takes into account current trends as well as long-term favourites, and aims to give you a few ideas of what to play across the platform's most popular genres.

Adopt Me!

Our first suggestion is an incredibly popular collectable pet game!

Adopt Me! maintains its position as one of Roblox's most popular games, and is easily the most played RPG on the platform. It's a game about caregiving. Players take on the role of either an adoptive parent or an adopted child and tend to their everyday needs, Sims-style.

However, the focus of the game has shifted in its lifespan, with collectable pets becoming the big draw for most players. Recently, they've added additional pets for players to obtain and care for, alongside vehicles, toys, and other cosmetics. If you're curious about which companions you can find in the game, here's our list of all the pets and how to get them. Adopt Me! shows little sign of slowing with future updates, and is a must play for Roblox players.

Adopt Me! gets weekly updates and regular time-limited events, including some cool tie-ins with properties like Scooby-Doo. Since this game is aimed at a younger player base than most Roblox content, it's also worth being aware that it contains microtransactions, particularly related to its pet-centric features.

Pet Simulator X

Another pet collectable game, and another banger.

Our second pick is another pet collection/simulation game, this time in the form of Pet Simulator X! Whereas Adopt Me! is a longstanding favourite in the minds of Roblox players, those with a hunger for additional pets can collect more than 950 unique animals with this title.

Those who invest enough time in this particular pet collector will be able to unlock new worlds, enchant, and upgrade their pets in the pursuit of cultivating a unique pet collection. With over 5 billion visits and 4.7 million favourites, Pet Simulator X is a relaxing game that we suggest to pretty much everyone. You can trade pets too, so bringing your friends along for the ride is a cool way of building up a sweet bunch of lovable animals. Oh, and don't forget that there are also often a range of Pet Sim X codes, giving players a range of freebies including diamonds and boosts.

Murder Mystery 2

Got a taste for a bit of mystery? Murder Mystery 2 is one of the best deduction games on the platform.

Murder Mystery 2 is Roblox's premier game under the horror tag. One player per round is randomly designated the murderer, and another the sheriff. Up to ten additional players are the innocents. All three groups play their own set of rules with different victory conditions: the murderer aims to eliminate everyone before the sheriff catches them; the sheriff must try to identify and then stop the murderer; and the innocents aim to survive and can aid the sheriff's investigation. Don't forget to check out our Murder Mystery 2 codes too though for a range of custom knives.

With the recent surge in popularity of social deduction games (notably Among Us), it's unsurprising that Murder Mystery 2 continues to be one of the most-visited games on Roblox. The game is played in short rounds and has a small number of paid add-ons, including the option to set up private servers at 10 Robux each (approximately 11p/12¢).

Welcome to Bloxburg

Live out your second life in Roblox with this hugely popular game.

Welcome to Bloxburg is a Sims-inspired Town & City game. The features are largely what we've come to expect from the life simulation genre: your character can get a day job, live a life of leisure hanging out with friends, or seek adventure in the game world at large. This game also features a build mode that's received particular praise.

It's worth noting that Welcome to Bloxburg is one of the few Roblox games you have to purchase before playing. It costs 25 Robux — which is about 30p/31¢ (but the current Robux minimum purchase is £4.59/$4.99 for 400). There are also a small number of purchasable add-ons, which mainly introduce more varied and flexible building tools.

Royale High

Live it up in style in Royale High.

Royale High is tagged as an adventure game on Roblox, but in practice it's a fantasy RPG. You control a supernatural high schooler from a noble family, and the aim is to balance socialising with other players against studying to level up your character. Better grades result in more in-game currency, which can be spent on cosmetic items for your character. There's also an increasingly large and varied game world to explore outside of the school.

The game includes a regular rotation of seasonal events and updates. Royale High also allows you to set up a private server for 100 Robux (approximately £1.12/$1.27).

Blox Fruits

The inspiration for this game is clear, but don't let that distract you from this excellent title!

Blox Fruits is one of the most popular fighting games in Roblox right now, and stands out as one of the most well-received combat games you can boot up. In Blox Fruits, you jump in and hunt down a range of weapons and fruits that provide incredible powers. From there, it's all about strengthening your character to take on tougher enemies in an endless journey to enhance your abilities. We even have a Blox Fruits codes page to help you get free goodies for your journey.

Blox Fruits is always being updated, and is truly one of the most content-packed games on Roblox right now. If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a try and see what all the fuss is about!

Explore a bustling city in this exciting Roblox Town and City game.

MeepCity is another Town & City game along similar lines as Welcome to Bloxburg, but with a greater emphasis on socialising with other players: servers support up to 200 players (Roblox games generally top out at around 30).

In many ways MeepCity delivers the greatest hits of some of Roblox's other most popular games: it also features a very popular series of customisable pets, a building system where you can craft your dream home, and mini-games that earn you in-game currency for buying cosmetic items.

Brookhaven RP

Brookhaven is one of the most popular RP games in Roblox!
Brookhaven is one of the most popular RPGs in Roblox!

Brookhaven RP is a Town & City game which is now over two years old. The huge popularity that the game has managed to gain in this short amount of time demonstrates what made Roblox so popular throughout 2020 and 2021. Brookhaven delivers a chill, Second Life-style RPG with a focus on luxury living and being able to leave your house whenever you like. What's not to love?

The game's description emphasises finding like-minded players to role-play with, and servers are limited to a relatively small social circle of 18 players. Presumably to support this, you can set up a private Brookhaven RP server for 100 Robux (about £1.15/$1.30). Don't forget to check-out our Brookhaven music codes page for adding a range of extra songs to the game too.

Tower of Hell

Tower is one of the best obstacle games out there right now.

Tower of Hell is tagged as an adventure game, but Roblox aficionados will recognise it as an obby (short for obstacle course). Obbies are somewhat notorious among Roblox players: while there are some excellent obbies on the platform, they've also acquired a bit of a reputation as the easiest type of Roblox game to push out at very low quality.

Obviously, Tower of Hell is one of the good ones. Imagine making it to the Fall Guys finale every time and the ensuing wild scramble. Boasting randomly generated levels and absolutely no checkpoints to make things easier, up to 20 players race each other to the top of the titular tower. Private servers cost 250 Robux (approximately £2.82/$3.20) and allow the host to tweak some settings.

Anime Fighting Simulator

Get your dukes out and start fighting in this action-packed Roblox title.

Anime Fighting Simulator is, as you might expect, a fighting game inspired by the outlandish combat seen in various anime. Being a Roblox game, it's understandably less graphic than some of the big name fighting franchises, but otherwise it's a surprisingly complete experience if you like the genre.

Regular updates add new items, equipment, and other features; the game even has seasons (currently on Season 6). To cap off the experience, there are different game modes, including a Tournament mode and that classic inclusion: a Story Mode that hardly anyone has touched. Along with the different modes and frequent updates, there are also plenty of codes for Anime Fighting Simulator.

Servers host up to 20 players, and a private server costs 250 Robux (around £2.82/$3.20) to set up.

Piggy is one of Roblox's best horror games, and follows an asymmetrical format that is comparable to Dead by Daylight. It features multiple game modes, and even more maps; most of which will see one person playing the killer, Piggy, while other players do their best to hide and survive.

During the intense game of murderous hide-and-seek, however, there's plenty of other secrets to uncover. Discover tools, keys, and safes to aid with your survival (or your murder-spree), and experience the alternate endings that some maps have to offer.

All Star Tower Defense

All Star Tower Defense is a bit of a gem on Roblox. It plays out like your typical tower defense game; you take on hordes of enemies with an arsenal of weapons and tools, except in All Star Tower Defense, your turrets and other weaponry are swapped out for iconic anime characters.

Your units in All Star Tower Defense will feature characters from Demon Slayer, One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, and more, and the areas you will be defending are also taken straight from fan-favourite anime series. On top of that, there's plenty of game modes to try out, and an unlimited mode to act as the ultimate test of strength. Check out our All Star Tower Defense codes if you plan on jumping in.

Rainbow Friends

Rainbow Friends is one of Roblox's stranger games, but has proven to be a hit with those who are fans of fun, colorful horror experiences. A multiplayer, story-based experience, Rainbow Friends is split up into multiple chapters, with the first sending players to an amusement park called Odd World.

Except, they never actually end up at Odd World. When their journey takes an unexpected turn, the players end up at a bizarre facility where surprisingly vibrant monsters lurk around every corner. As a result, our group of players must collect items, steer clear of trouble, and find a way to survive for five nights.

Bed Wars

You might be familiar with Bed Wars as a popular Minecraft game, but now it's available to play in Roblox, too. The premise is simple; you'll battle it out with a dozen other players, all of whom will be trying to destroy yours and others' beds. Destroyed beds will prevent players from respawning, and thus, result in a loss.

This might sound difficult, but don't worry, as you'll be playing as part of a team in Bed Wars. On top of this, there's a few different game modes to experiment with, and plenty of special blocks, weapons, and items to liven up gameplay.

Arm Wrestle Simulator

Arm Wrestle Simulator on Roblox is exactly what you'd expect, given its name. In this game, you will go head to head with other players in some unruly arm wrestling matches.

To become the best of the best, you'll have to spend some time improving your bicep and hand strenght, as well as your cardio ability, before eventually tackling Arm Wrestle Simulator's final boss. You can train to your hearts content, battle it out with other players, and look forward to weekly updates of the game.

Face off with some spooky entities in the pursuit of the 100th door. | Image credit: Roblox

Doors is a first-person horror experience on Roblox, and it puts a fun, multiplayer spin on the endless door-opening that we see in plenty of psychological horror games, such as Layers of Fear and the P.T. demo. In this game, however, you must team up with other players to eventually reach Door 100.

You'll start with one door, and then must slowly keep opening doors until you eventually reach 100. During all of this, there will be ghastly entities hunting you and your team down. Fortunately, in your hunt for Door 100, there will be plenty of rooms to explore; in here, you can gain coins and items to help with your journey, or seek respite from hostile enemies in a hiding place. Even then, you can't trust your own hiding place sometimes...

Don't forget to use our Doors codes for a headstart, too.

Ninja Legends 2 may no longer be riding quite as high in the Roblox most-played charts as it did at its peak, but this is still one of the best Fighting games on the platform. An evolution of the original Ninja Legends game, this sequel mixes things up with the addition of Elements, a new in-game currency boosting your powers and giving you access to new items.

The core of the game remains the same though: you train your character to become the best ninjutsu master in all the worlds, levelling up your blade-wielding prowess and zipping about with your fancy parkour skills.

One of the most famous experiences on Roblox, Jailbreak is the ultimate game of cops and robbers. Currently on its 19th content season at the time of writing, this is a team-based, open-world experience that takes the popular playground game as its jumping-off point, but adds extra layers of role-playing.

The interesting thing about Jailbreak is that the gameplay is extremely different depending on your alliance. Playing on the Police or Prisoner teams sees you effectively playing hide-and-seek with the opposing team, utilising a series of tools like police-issue weapons and keycards. But if you successfully escape as a Prisoner, you get to become a Criminal, at which point you can take part in planning and executing heists, which take the game in a whole different direction.

Hide and Seek Extreme

There's something quite wholesome about Hide and Seek Extreme, which is more or less exactly what it sounds like. There's a kind of Honey I Shrunk The Kids vibe to this adventure playground-style game, which sees one player chosen to be "It" and the rest of the lobby tasked with running and hiding from them in maps based on ordinary locations scaled up to giant-sized.

One of those rare Roblox experiences that's neither low-key creepy nor a blocky attempt at copyright violation, Hide and Seek Extreme grants the "It" player a special ability to help even the odds, since they'll be pursuing up to 13 other players in timed matches. Despite being on the platform for nearly a decade now, it retains popularity through strong player numbers, and continues to receive semi-regular content updates.

Death Ball

Death Ball has your back when you just can't choose between an anime fighting game or a sports game. Why not take that massive anime blade and use it to play hockey with? Think outside the box just a little and you've got the recipe for one of Roblox's most popular new experiences from 2023.

I compare this game to hockey, and while it has that aesthetic, really the aim of the game is more like dodgeball, since it's a free-for-all with the main goal of being the last one standing. However, the ball in question has a mind of its own and you'll need to steer it away from yourself as well as towards your opponents, which adds an element of deadly unpredictability.

Don't forget to use our Death Ball codes for a extra gems!
