Me and My Egg, Minecraft Adventure Map

This quirky, deceptively cute minecraft adventure map wins points for an interesting little storyline that finds a hapless newcomer to town who only ever wanted to get a nice house and maybe buy a pet turning into a wanted killer. We’ve all had days like that, right? What starts as a nice enough day quickly turns into a twisted flight for your life. The idyllic small town gives way to dangerous tests of skill and luck that will press you to your very limits as you do your best to escape with your life – and your egg.

The map is split into separate ‘days’ each with their own little sub levels to work through. There’s a nice difficulty curve too, so don’t be put off by the apparent simplicity of the initial stages of play, you’ll get what is coming to you in later levels where the challenge level is GLaDOS worthy. This minecraft map truly has everything, adventure, parkour elements, maze solving, egg protecting, joy and tragedy. (Plus a bonus quiz round!) Definitely a ‘must download’ map for everyone who loves a good minecraft adventure.

Mooshroom Rage Minecraft Game

This minecraft fight map reminded me of a WoW or RPG style boss fight. Specifically, you’re trying to damage the boss whilst minions come at you in constant flows. It’s surprisingly hard to send arrows into a giant mooshroom’s face whilst zombies gently nudge you into lava. Subsequently, even on the easy setting, your view often ends up being more like the one pictured below than above.

This is a great, fun minecraft map. I wish we had a proper name for this genre of maps, we’ve called them attack maps, combat maps, game maps. This one is mostly a minecraft ‘argh I’m on fire’ map. It’s good for up to two players, so if you can find a friend to play with you, do that. As the old adage goes, hordes of zombies shared are hordes of zombies halved.

Minecraft Over-Engineering Smoothstone Generators World Download

Beautiful aren’t they? These mandalas of redstone construction are smoothstone generators capable of output so fast it will cause minecraft to lag, then cry softly into its mushroom soup. Watch the video to gain a new appreciation for the power of redstone.

Stone generators capable of generating 6,000 smoothstone blocks in a minute? No problem! Minecraft Over-Engineering is an amazing You Tube series that not only pushes the limits of what can be done in minecraft, but provides some pretty handy tutorials for the average player who wants something a little less manic. You can download the world file for the video you see above and play with these generators yourself, from the simple single column smoothstone generator to the behemoths you see at the end of the video.

Lava Block Minecraft Lava Survival Map

Lava Block appears to be a simple minecraft survival map, but it is anything but. The lava hides secrets! It’s safe to say without being too spoiler-y that the lava sea, whilst very dangerous, is somewhat mitigated by the fact that it is actually a water ocean topped with a layer of lava. You can fall through lava and then immerse yourself in the cooling embrace of tonnes of water. The problem however, is the fact that falling through lava makes you take damage and then there’s more trouble ahead in the form of drowning so, you know, plan your descents and ascents wisely.

The starting chest in this survival map contains nothing but 128 blocks of water, which can and will turn much of the map to obsidian before you can say ‘where’s my bucket’.

Though this looks like a typical ‘islands set in lava’ minecraft map, it’s actually anything but. You need a good handle on survival strategy, an understanding of the mechanics of minecraft and a willingness to leap into lava to survive here. Are you ready to take that fiery leap?

Stonecraft Minecraft Survival Island Map

The island, it is made of stone! And you must survive in these stony isles, where punching will only leave you with bloodied fists. Judicious use of clay deposits as well as a generous helping of not one, but two trees are enough to get you started on your way to surviving a very gray world.

There are lots of challenges included in this map, so people who like challenges will enjoy that. Also, because this map has been created on a plains biome, not an ocean biome, animals spawn quite readily, which is useful for people who don’t like starving.

Though this map at first appears to be little more than a barren wasteland with precious few green spots to reccomend it, once the interior of the island is explored things start to get a little more interesting. Minecraft survivalists with a penchant for remote island survival scenarios are going to enjoy this map.
