King Spoon’s Tomb, Minecraft Adventure / Puzzle Map

A minecraft adventure / puzzle map set in an Egyptian tomb, King Spoon’s Tomb is full of dangers for the unwary explorer. Lord Canarvon himself would think twice before setting foot even in the very outermost of chambers of the resting place of the great King Spoon.

This map does contain a pet peeve of mine, which is a difficult lava based parkour challenge right at the very beginning. Maybe my parkour skills lag substantially behind those of the average Minecraft player, but I get really tired of landing in lava fifty times before I even start a map. If that sounds annoying to you, skip this map because there are even harder lava challenges ahead. This is not a map that holds your hand and pets the back of it and tells you how wonderful you are. This is a map that goes out of its way to hurt you in ways that are inventive and amusing if your humor turns in that direction.

Perhaps unsurprisingly there is quite an element of maze solving involved in this adventure map, passages upon passages wind their way through the tomb. The mazes are in no way kind and the phrase ‘dead end’ means more than just having to turn around and try another route. If you find yourself at a dead end, that means yo end is dead. There’s no end to the viciousness the creator has unleashed upon the player, oftentimes employing multiple means of dealing damage to remove any possible hope for survival. I found myself actually reluctant to even try to get rewards because the punishments were so frequent and harsh.

If you get tired of the tomb, it’s quite fun to wander the map and look at the other half abandoned builds that are scattered about the place. The creator tells you specifically not to do this, but hey, he’s not around – is he?

King Spoon’s Tomb is one heck of a high quality minecraft adventure map and it’s not a bad puzzle map either. It might very well push you to the brink of sanity, but don’t let that stop you from downloading it.

Jungle Survival Island Minecraft Survival Map

At first this Jungle Island map seemed like all the maps before it. An island. In minecraft. That requires survival. But then I found the underground chamber of secrets with dungeon effects and I realized that I was… really quite lost actually.

This is a surprisingly exciting survival map, mostly because of the exploration aspect which comes into play as soon as you start playing the map. There’s also the opportunity to visit the end and slay a dragon, that quintessential minecraft experience that makes so much sense in the context of the game. So much sense.

If that’s not enough, there are challenges! All sorts of challenges. Build villages for villagers, construct farms and generally colonize the living heck out of the verdant forest environment.

Unofficial challenge:

Deforest the entire island.

Survival Archway Minecraft Survival Map

This minecraft survival map is also an archway, with survival above and below. Don’t expect to just go about digging up ores either, all diggy dig dig. Nope. The ores are in another castle. Or a chest, or something. Any way you put it they’re hard to find.

The landscape of the map is interesting enough to make the hide and seek required for survival fun. Adding to the difficulty factor is the fact that you’re in an ocean biome so there’s little to no chance of animals spawning unless you happen to find some animal spawning eggs.

Though this is nothing spectacularly new, it is a solid survival map and those looking for a simple minecraft survival map (especially a survival island style map) will probably be quite pleased with this little offering.

Sorry miners, someone changed the permalinks then went to bed and left them broken for the better part of a day. That person is now chipping their way out of an obsidian cell with their bare hands. All is now fixed.

The Dropper, Minecraft Adventure / Puzzle Map

The Dropper has one simple requirement for those that play it: survive the fall.

What’s truly fun (and when I say fun, I mean, a good ego check) is that it’s possible for you to fail this simple task almost immediately, albeit in a truly spectacular way. The opening level of ‘The Dropper’ (pictured in the image above) put me in mind of the opening of Alice in Wonderland, tumbling down the rabbit hole. In fact, that’s what this level should really have been called, in my humble opinion. You fall and you fall and you fall and then you realize that the landing is going to have very unpleasant consequences if you can’t figure it out.

It took me five or six attempts to survive the first fall through the glass and glowstone worm tower. It would have taken fewer if I hadn’t tried to cheat my way around the system a couple of times only to realize that The Dropper is strict and stringent in its rules.

You will be impressed by this map, not only has a lot of building time gone into it, but the challenges are very well balanced and there’s some impressive redstone work to admire as well, including an elevator that shuffles you all the way to the top of the map with ultimate piston technology.

Made for both multiplayer and singleplayer, you can play The Dropper minecraft map alone or with friends. Playing with friends will be an experience to remember as each of your group has to develop the finesse and control to make their avatar glide gracefully through the air before landing unharmed in the few safe spots.

The Dropper is described as an Adventure / Puzzle map, but I actually think the creator has effectively made an entirely new genre here using the minecraft falling mechanics and gravity system in a way that few, if any other minecraft maps have done.
