You’ve played minecraft sky survival islands before, but have you played sky survival hot air balloons? This unique little minecraft survival map comes with more than 60 challenges – packing a big punch in a very little series of baskets. Each of the hot air balloons contains a resource – and often a surprise. Though you can’t fly these minecraft balloons, you can travel to various realms by harvesting the possibilities locked within these sky borne baskets.
You spawn in the middle of a balloon fleet, surrounded by colorful floating orbs. It’s a very pleasant way to be thrown into a world of harsh survival. From the outset you must start expanding, making your way between the balloons. Though precious resources are scattered in what seems to be abundance, you must first gather the tools to harvest those resources and that is more of a challenge than you might think.
As with many maps of this type, various biomes can be found in various balloons. Some of them might feel a little trite, but when it comes time to make your house in the sky, complete with glass windows, you’ll be glad for that little desert full of sand.
A solid little map, anyone who enjoys classic minecraft survival will enjoy Hot Air Balloon Survival.
A HD minecraft steampunk texture pack, Broken Anachronism is a seriously impressive piece of work.

Do you remember the wonder and beauty of Lake Hylia? Looking to use your Minecraft hookshot in a Zelda themed map? This minecraft re-creation of the famous lake where we played our Ocarina as the dawn rose is perfect for a hefty dose of nostalgia, and a fun contemporary gaming experience.
This map is playable on a multiplayer server run by a group of people known only as ‘RaiderCraft’. And possibly Chad. There’s always a Chad. Ooo Chad.
Anyway, for a minecraft Zelda multiplayer experience, where everyone will be able to face off with one another in various Link and Zelda minecraft skins.
This parkour map involves leaping, jumping, shuffling and something that looks like a big glowing planet at one stage. I feel good about it. I think you will too.
DarkChaosCraft, the weightily named minecraft parkour map is comprised of several unique levels, each one themed in a different style. Beginners start in a glowstone and colored wool creche of sorts, which is pretty suitable even for novice parkour players. The difficulty quickly ramps up on later levels however, and by the time you’re hurling yourself through a desert nightmare, you’ll be impressed with how much your skills have developed. Or you’ll be rage qutting because you have yet to hone your fine motor skills to the point where piloting a big blocky two meter high avatar through a world of other blocks.
Each level concludes with a unique minecraft boss, a final obstacle between you and the passing of the level. It’s a traditional formula, but I think it works.
A complete the monument map with only two monument blocks (and two monument weapons,) Lake of Mirrors sounds like an easy minecraft CTM map. But it’s not. The first thing that makes it difficult is the fact that it is made in hardcore mode. That’s a pretty big thing. It means that this map is merciless and you only get one chance to battle glowstone headed skeletons and win. (more…)
