I love this game and the fact that it is free and has a wide selection of games, I can tell there was hard work put into these games! The only issue about it is the bugs, a few times this has happened where I will be playing and when I move my joystick, it moves my whole screen and I have to change servers, it is highly annoying. Also the amount of hackers and scammers is very high and I feel like in the future that should be fixed. Overall I love the game!

I love this game! It is awsome but just one thing verry anoying, and I think it is only with chromebooks, witch I use. Let's say I'm playing piggy in first person. When I try to pick up a tool or key my curser goes all the way across the screen. It goes were it would be if I was not in first person, also it does not let me spin around when in first person. That is all that I don't like so please, if you can, work on that and make it stay in the midle, your prize would be 5 stars. Thank you.

Roblox is an awesome game. There's a lot of games and types of games to try out! There are many major bugs that should be fixed though because those tiny updates don't really fix them much. Like, on mobile sometimes it won't let you turn, but it'll let you walk, jump and talk, but you have to leave to fix it. This is really annoying to have on games where you must move your screen like obbies. The bug has been there for a while and I've seen no progress from the team on trying to fix it.

Roblox is a popular gaming platform that works seamlessly on computers. However, it may struggle on your mobile devices as it is not optimized for this platform. For instance, while playing Roblox on your mobile phone, it may not start at all or crash during the gameplay.

Check Your Internet Connection
Roblox is an online game. Therefore, your device must connect to the internet to play this game. If you have an unstable internet connection, you might face a problem loading inside the game, or it might not even open.
Roblox is one of the power-hungry games that need to have fast internet to play the game. So, You can test your internet speed by using online internet testing apps or websites.
Reboot Your Device
Do you know when your app or games are not opening or working, you can easily fix it by rebooting your device? It works most of the time as it is an effective way to resolve such an issue caused by minor glitches. Rebooting will help your device clear all the background apps and start fresh from the beginning.

To switch it on, press the Side Button until you see the Apple logo on your screen.
Reopen the Game
This is another option you should try if your Roblox is not working. If you are like some users who don’t close the app and let it stay in the memory, it will consume more memory and lead to such an issue. Therefore, closing and opening the game has a chance to fix the issue.
Check Your Storage
Roblox mostly struggles to work on budget devices. If you are trying to launch your Roblox on those devices, it’s normal to have an issue like it. Roblox can only perform better with mid-range or high-end devices.
Or, If you are already full of storage, it can also cause your Roblox to fail. Apps and Games generate temporary files on your device. So, try deleting unwanted files to create space to run your high-priority games/apps.
Check Your Date and Time
This solution may look out of place, but it could work nonetheless. Roblox won’t work if you set an incorrect date and time. The game server and your precise Date & Time must match to transmit the data. Therefore, make sure your Date and Time are correct.
Clear the Data
This is a hit-and-miss solution. It might work for some users, but for others, it might not. Nevertheless, you can still try and clear the data to see if it works on your device. When you clear the data, you only need to log in again. Android users can easily do it, while there’s no such option for iPhone users.
However, iPhone users can offload the apps. Offloading the apps will save all your data, removing only apps from the device. Once you install it, all your data will be back.
Here’re the steps to clear the data on Android:

There’s a high chance your game has some bugs affecting it to run on your device. You can only be patient in those situations and let the Roblox team fix such issues. You need to update the app if your Roblox is still not working. Updating the game can make your Roblox work back to normal.
Update the Device
