From realistic launch simulators to playful ship battles in the sky, Roblox is underestimated regarding the number of space titles one can run into on the platform. As this sub-genre seems to be taking off, the quality of these is also seeing a sharp increase. With so many to choose from, here are the space games we believe are truly worth exploring.

This simulator offers over 50 missiles and probes to send into orbit, each with their own animations you’ll certainly need to watch for yourself. As the game takes the full capability of Roblox’s creator tools, this is exclusive to PC owners. If that’s not a problem for you, launch and hover a probe over a planet to begin creating your own station.

If you’re hunting down a space game with plenty of content, Space Combat Tycoon is filled with intergalactic activities and unique items to collect. Tasked with protecting your new planet, you’ll run into several other players and AI monsters seeking to take over the land. Once these baddies are taken care of, there is a collection of mini-games, like Obbies, allowing you to earn more money and enhance your station.

8. Galaxy

Although most spaceships titles in Roblox tend to struggle with a decent control scheme, Galaxy is a smooth and easy to play dogfighting title that pits ships of online players against each other. Aside from taking out enemy ships, the thrill here will be to collect rare materials through mining and trading to gain control of a dauntingly massive spacecraft.

7. 3-2-1 Blast Off Simulator

3-2-1 Blast Off Simulator is a more kid-friendly approach in the world of launch simulators. Although you do have to collect resources through various mini-games, the main objective is to beat the high scores of others in the lobby and fly your ship as high as possible. However, the further one may get in the sky, the greater its chance to land on a planet full of secret loot.

6. Innovation Inc. Spaceship

Although no single objective needs to be completed, players will roam around to discover wacky aliens, deadly experiments, and plenty of free outfits tucked deep within the craft’s hidden corridors.

5. Starscape

To make that dream come true, players will need to fight against enemy spaceships in return for resources and cash. With these rewards, you must inhabit a new planet and build your first home away from Earth.

4. Build and Survive!
