The Top Games of March, 2015
by Andrew Haak
One of the coolest ROBLOX experiences is the rush of pulling up the Games page to see what people are playing. Every day, there’s something new at the top of the charts — whether by sheer popularity, earning serious ROBUX, getting lots of thumbs up, or hooking players for repeat play sessions. In this article, we’re stepping back from the day-to-day fluctuations of what’s hot and looking at what games you, the gamers and developers of the ROBLOX community, turned into trends throughout the month of March.
Top 25 Games of March, 2015
This list is based entirely on the number of player visits between March 1st and March 31st. We want to hear what you played last month, as well, so keep reading and let us know in the comments!

If you follow along with us every month, you see that many of the top games have extremely devoted core fan bases. Once again, Work at a Pizza Place is the chart-topping game, with another strong showing of almost 2.75 million play sessions in March. Dued1, who we introduced live last month on an episode of The Next Level, has his game in a comfortable state of popularity, and the title’s penchant for emergent and unpredictable gameplay have prevented anything else from truly shaking its momentum.
Twisted Murderer, Ripull Minigames, and Super Bomb Survival! all make appearances in the top 25, with a little boost from the Egg Hunt 2015, which kicked off at the end of March. Even without the event, all three games would have been on the list, so our hats are off to the developers for their hard work in creating their unique Egg Hunt themes.
Hide and Seek Extreme is a newcomer to the list, having skyrocketed up the charts in March after its January launch. Its popularity has since waned, but it still has a steady stream of players who enjoy playing a classic playground game in over-sized environments. Speed Run 4 used new level packs to make a return to the top 25 list, proving that players can’t get enough super-fast flip-jumping obstacle-course action, while a couple recent titles (Fairy Tail Online Fighting and MORTUS RPG, in particular) show that there’s a significant demand for epic combat arenas and open-world RPGs.
Several games that we find exciting at ROBLOX HQ narrowly missed the cut. Looking further than the top 25, we found that Mining Inc amassed 695,159 visits, Murder Mystery 2 racked up 457,808 visits, Club Boates attracted 395,514 dance fiends, and Hex had another strong showing with 356,273 visits. The well of awesome ROBLOX games keeps getting deeper.
Remember, this list is based solely on the number of people who visited the games during the month of March. We know there are thousands more games, many of which are excellent but not necessarily the most popular. Make sure to check out ROBLOX’s Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch, where we spotlight less popular creations all the time!
