Best City-Building Games on Roblox (2023)

If you're looking for an exciting simulation game that gives you absolute control, look no further than Roblox. With over 18 million games on the platform, Roblox takes the limelight for its exciting range of simulation games. The massive online platform is home to various city-building games that let you develop the city of your dreams from scratch. 

The games spark your creativity, boost your mood, and let your imagination run wild as you build the finest metropolis. Other games go above and beyond to add an element of horror to spice up your city-building experience. If this sounds like something up your alley, we've ranked the best city-building games below for you to dip your toes in. So without much further ado, let's dive in.

5. Building Simulator 2


Assemble your hammers and nails, and let's get to the building! Building Simulator 2 is precisely what the name implies. The game is one of the coveted building simulators that fans can't get enough of. Perhaps it's due to the wide range of features it offers, such as auto-build. This feature debuted in the original Building Simulator, and fans can now quickly develop their city.

As a newbie, your task will be to build skate ramps and pyramids. It may seem boring at first but worry not. You only need to make it to 300 dollars to venture into your next build. Moreover, just like in real life, you'll need to take on jobs to access better tools, blueprints, and helpers.

To start building, you need to navigate to an empty lot and click on it. A pop-up menu will appear with a selection of blueprints. Of course, they all come with a price, so the more you rack up in earnings (by building), the more sophisticated buildings you can construct. 

4. City Building Tycoon

If you're looking for a polished simulator game that features well-defined buildings, City Building Tycoon is the right choice for you. The game gives you the role of a tycoon, civil engineer, and mayor. As a jack of trades, your main goal is to construct the best city and stack the benjamins from it. 

The outstanding part about the game is the flawless design of the buildings, which makes the experience worthwhile. Moreover, the buildings are less pixelated, as seen in other city-building simulation games. City Building Tycoon features a large map to explore and facilities to interact with. 

Furthermore, the game features a platform where you collect your earnings from the buildings. The more you earn, the more you can upgrade and buy buildings and level up your avatar to an affluent tycoon. Put in more work, and you'll soon take over the leaderboard.

3. Build a Mini City

And just like all the other games on this list, Build a Mini City uses the same city-building simulation concept. Only this one is better. For starters, the game allows free-range exploration and offers a tutorial for newbies. Moreover, users can earn money much faster compared to other building simulation games.

The game's layout and design are outstanding, featuring an easy user interface. It's one of the most popular games you'll find on Roblox. 

While the game offers a tutorial, you can quickly learn the ropes in a matter of minutes. The concept behind its gameplay is simple; build a mini city that stands out from the rest. Do you think you can handle this? There's only one way to find out.

2. Build to Survive

Build to Survive puts your building skills to the test. Will you survive or perish at the hands of the critters and disasters lurking in the game? Like other building simulators, the game is relatively fun and easy, but it doesn't just center around the building; you must make it to the end of the game.

While you have better chances of surviving by building the tallest skyscraper, you can't spend your Roblox days holed up in your castle; Hello, this is not a rendition of Rapunzel. The game gives you options for defending yourself. The screen displays various activities to do in case of an attack. For instance, you can grab a jet pack and fly into oblivion or engage your foe in a duel by picking the deadly sword option.  

Furthermore, you can team up with your friends to build an invincible fort to hold off the killers. You will need to find a base that is cool enough and away from the angry celebrities and monsters. But, you must be quick and strategic in your building skills. A killer will spawn every second; you don't want to be caught off guard.

1. Mini Cities

Mini Cities takes city-building simulation to a whole new level. The game features random traffic spawns, which paint a picture of a busy metropolis. Moreover, you get the satisfaction of turning your mini city from a dump into a glorious city of skyscrapers. 

The game uses the usual Robox art style, as seen in Theme Park Tycoon 2. Players can transform the city's landscape by adding customized blocks anywhere they desire. Furthermore, there's plenty to do and more people to serve. Building houses soon gets addictive since you need your mini city to thrive. You can only achieve this by having large populations interact, just like in the real world. You need to create bigger and better ones to attract more people to your town. 

The best part is that the game features over 100 unique buildings. This way, you can create a lavish and idealistic town that's diverse and matches your personality. Also, there's never a dull moment in the city. With traffic sprawling all over the town making deliveries, this is one of Roblox's most realistic city-building games.
