I really rather like the name of this minecraft map download, Destiny. It’s like when you call your dog something like ‘Mike’. Then you can yell things like ‘hurry up and take a dump, Mike’ or ‘stop humping the guests, Mike.
Destiny comes with it’s own texture pack. (A modified Doku pack.) Destiny tends to hold your hand throughout your adventures. Destiny is your constant companion, your friend and ultimately the cause of your demise. Destiny is forever alone. But Destiny is also horribly cliched in some respects, you spawn in confusion, as in so many minecraft maps. Are we truly to believe that the only way to begin a minecraft map is in a bizarre state of partial amnesia? Surely Destiny could do better than that.
Destiny has continuous narration provided through signs, which I rather like. It’s much better than reading through tedious text documents. So double points for destiny there.
Destiny thinks that the primary use for cookies is DNA testing.
In many respects, Destiny is a bit like a game of golf, a nice stroll through a pretty landscape.
Destiny is sometimes confusing. The beginning of the adventure is deliberately obfuscated from the player with numerous ‘false starts’ that make one wonder if one is actually playing the map yet or not.
Destiny makes you question your sanity a little more than is probably good for you.
Destiny has a storyline that keeps you guessing and puzzles that will make you scratch your head whilst you guess. So basically, it’s a one size fits all minecraft wash for your brain. By the time you are done with this map you will not only be satisfied, but possibly a little wiser than you were when you began play.
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.
This massive minecraft survival map contains six custom made dungeons and an epic sweeping landscape that will bring tears to your eyes. This is more of a minecraft continent survival map than a minecraft island survival map. Every inch of the forgotten land, or chunk as it were, has been handcrafted. The result is a custom built minecraft map where the terrain itself is part of the adventure.
With breathtaking mountain ranges and smaller details like rural lakes set amidst grasslands, The Forgotten Land isn’t a survival map you’re going to build a cobblestone generator on and quit, it’s a map you’re quite possibly going to want to live in for quite some time.
This land, although forgotten, positively teems with life and possibilities. You could become an old mountain hermit, or found a great city of villagers and Iron Golems in these pristine lands.
Even the simple act of traversing and circumnavigating the map is a survival adventure in its own right, because the map is so large that it will be many, many days before you see a significant portion of the lands you have laid claim to.
This is an exceptional minecraft map, perfect for survivalists, explorers and people who just don’t feel right unless they’re breaking new ground.
I love me a little Sherlock Holmes I do. A little Victorian flavor always makes the vagaries of modern day life a little more bearable. Even if you only open this map and wander around it for a bit without reading any of the clues, solving any off the puzzles or indulging in any adventure whatsoever it will be worth it. The representation of Victorian London alone justifies the download.
If you do delve into the story, you’ll be delighted by the creative touches put in place by the author of this tale, a man who has no qualms about doing a British accent with the enthusiasm only a citizen of an ex colony can muster. In addition to the usual notes and signs there is also a full set of video cut scenes to feast your eyes and ears upon.
This is a wonderful minecraft adventure / puzzle map, with a great deal of attention to detail. The creator has gone quite out of their way to immerse you in the mystery of the Blocky Conspiracy. Now it is up to you to prove yourself worthy of the mantle of Holmes.
Hwd45 has taken childhood, wrapped it up into a ball and shoved it fist first into the minecraft universe with this Sonic the Hedgehog themed minecraft adventure map series that comes with its own texture pack. Actually it comes with three separate texture packs to be used in various places around the map, which shows a real dedication to detail.
If you love nostalgia, large minecraft adventure maps and games that look a lot like other games, then your head is going to go spinning like a little blue hedgehog when you get this map open and start play. It’s actually still in Beta at the time of writing, but there’s more in the beta version of this minecraft map than there are in some complete maps.
The map makes good use of potions to grant abilities that make completing certain sections of the map easier. I like this integration of ‘vanilla’ minecraft features into the sonic experience (although nothing has really felt vanilla in Minecraft since the long lost days of Beta.)
Though it has had a slow start due to the immense amount of work that has gone into it, SonicCraft is probably one of the most exciting maps I’ve had the pleasure of playing this year, it’s not just a gimmicky remake of an old video game, it’s a solid minecraft adventure experience in its own right.
