Finally! A minecraft survival map with an original premise! The Biome Clock survival features several distinct biomes (desert, fields, jungle, etc). Now that in itself isn’t original, but what is original is the ‘clock’ feature. Each biome is connected by a lava filled bridge that is only open for ten minutes every hour. Which means you have to plan out your survival tactics in order to gather enough resources in those ten minutes to tide you over for another fifty.
So unlike other chunk based biome minecraft maps, instead of simply building several bridges and calling it a day, you slowly build your survival empire, choosing one place to make a base and gathering resources from all around.
Foolish chicken! Those walls are soon to close in upon thee!
In addition to the thrill of limited resources and limited time is the thrill of rushing across the bridges, not being sure if you have time or not. Will you make it? Or have you cut your run too close and will your precious resources – the ones you just spent an hour gathering, be burned along with you?

Curse of the Lost Souls is a minecraft survival island map played under the rules and conditions of a minecraft adventure island map. In just a couple days (or perhaps right now if you’re reading this in a couple days time) you won’t have to use your self control to impose adventure conditions on yourself – those adventure conditions being not breaking or placing blocks, but simply using the available materials provided by the map itself.
So what makes Curse of the Lost Souls special? It certainly has that ‘x’ factor, which for me means the moment I load the map I am intrigued and invited into the world. The landscape is not only beautiful, but staged in a way a REMAX agent could be proud of. When you step ashore into a Tiki bar gone awfully silent and deserted you feel as if the adventure is just beginning, and indeed it is.
What makes Curse of the Lost Souls a little tedious? ‘Adventure’ mode in this map basically means ‘find the chests and read the notes in the file’, which is fine if you like reading notes and looking for chests, but it means that you’re probably going to break the rules at some point and I don’t know, perhaps punch a tree for the hell of it. Don’t feel guilty if you find yourself, I don’t know, crafting a workbench and building a purple sheep farm. You gotta get whimsical with it.

2D Minecraft is a minecraft survival map in which one dimension has been removed entirely. You want to work with length, width and height? Ha! Such decadence will not be tolerated in the two dimensional regime. In 2D minecraft survival you’ll work with just length and height. Those are all the dimensions you’ll need.
What sets this map apart from other similar maps, like the renowned Ant Farm Survival is the scope of the map. Instead of boxing you into a small space, this map lets you roam freely through all sorts of terrain -it’s just no wider than two blocks at any given point. Even with view settings set to super-uber-distant and panning out to a great distance, it was only possible to capture a portion of the map in the above screenshot.
You’ve been given a home where the zombies roam and where the only way to get around dangerous obstacles is to follow the old tune: if you can’t get over it, go under it – because there sure ain’t any way around it.

It’s an island in the sky, but this time the island is made of netherrack and your job is to find chests, build houses and slay a dragon. Those are a lot of hats for one player to wear, and this isn’t TF2, so the hats are a lie. Confused yet? Build a wooden pickaxe and smash your way through netherbricks to chop down a tree, then talk to me about confusion.
Deception is a very neat, compact little survival map. It starts you out with just two blocks of wood, a bucket of lava and a bucket of water and little else. It’s up to you to make your way off the netherrack island and chop down the tree and it is up to you to craft a sky environment capable of not only supporting life, but creating the tools necessary to slay a dragon.
The simplicity of the map is refreshing, and the survival experience is a solid one. Is this anything especially wildly groundbreaking? Perhaps not. But when you’re tumbling into the void with the only iron ore you have and wondering where the heck you’re supposed to find flint the experience is as deep as you’ll need it to be.
Oh yeah, did I mention the custom nether? In this survival map, an island in hell isn’t a bad place to call home.

We come now to the ninth popular minecraft survival map of all time according to me and my statistics (generated by pig men scientists of the highest order). Number nine is Sky Pyramid, a sky survival minecraft map in which you float in the sky and try to survive. Yes, it is quite a bit like SkyBlock (which appears quite a bit further up the Top 10 countdown) but it has some unique points and advantages which I will now list.
Sky Pyramid gives you a lot more space to explore and a lot more grass and dirt to work with than SkyBlock, which is pretty much a cobblestone generator of a map. There I said it. Sky Pyramid also benefits from knowledge of cobblestone generation techniques, but you could probably get away without them if you were prepared to work exclusively with wood and wood derived tools.
Unlike Sky Block, which hates you and secretly wants you to fail, Sky Pyramid loves you. It is generous with its bounty. Ultimately it’s just another island in the sky, but it’s an island in the sky where animals will frolic and waters will fall and where you can make your own isolated dreams come true.
