Zombie Survival is a map with a simple premise.You’re stuck in a house with zombies. A lot of zombies. So there we go. You can try to survive, or try to be eaten. Either way you’re going to have a whole lot of fun hacking, slashing and screaming your way through waves of zombies, skeletons and spiders – because no day is complete without some jerk levitating through an open window and trying to end you.
In the tradition of many great horror movies, you could avoid the zombie onslaught by just leaving the house, but you’re not going to do that because that would spoil all the fun. And because you can’t. More on that later. You’re asked to play on ‘Hard’ mode because the creators feed on your screams and because that way the zombies can break down the doors you’re trying to hide behind.
Rewards are few and far between, but if you’re quick enough to collect the XP points dropped by the mobs you’ve killed then you might just be able to enchant your weapons. Do you enchant early and use low level power to grind away at your assailants? Or do you save up the enchants and use them when you really need them for the end? You decide. You’re also awarded a diamond at the end of every round, so that should help keep your spirits up.
A word of advice, press the ‘spawn’ and ‘start’ levers before you enter the house, it’s pretty much impossible to get out of the house through the doors once you enter because it turns out that you live in the house equivalent of a Chinese finger trap.

A volcanic island full of surprises, Monte Major is a minecraft survival island map with style. The volcano that dominates the center of the island is an impressive sight, especially when you step up to the crater and see the red hot lava bubbling far below. At that point you might very well feel the call of the void, but do stash your valuables before you respond as the outcome is unlikely to be positive. (And when I say unlikely, I mean I tested it twice for science, and it didn’t turn out well at all.)
This isn’t what I’d call a challenging survival map because there aren’t any restrictions (space restrictions, item restrictions, or other factors specifically included in the map to make your life more difficult) it’s more of a a survival challenge taking place on terrain you just won’t find in a generic minecraft spawn. Much of the island is covered in thick jungle, though there are parts of it where sparse pine trees tower skywards and where streams flow and apple trees blossom. Sometimes you’ll find a pig stuck in a tree, like a fly in a venus fly trap.
In addition to the wonderful terrain, there are two custom dungeons you can pit your skills against. Players who play this map on anything other than peaceful are going to find the battle to subdue the hostile monsters of the island a hard fought one.
Those daring to explore the deep reaches of the volcano will be handsomely rewarded, as with those who simply wander about the place poking their noses where they may or may not belong. For a beautiful survival experience, you really should:

Giant. Diamond. Creepers. Three worlds that should get your pulse racing, your stomach churning and your palms sweating. Wealth of the World is the sort of minecraft map download that legends are made of, it gives you the leeway to be who you really are whilst constantly tickling your funny bone and setting challenges that you can’t wait to rise to.
Most CTM maps involve grubbing about the place for some colored wool, but Wealth of the World takes a different approach. Instead of wool, you must offer animal eggs to appease giant diamond creepers who wish to cook them. It makes about as much sense as anything else does in minecraft, so I’m all for it.
I also like the way the map is designed to be played on peaceful. There’s nothing more irritating than trying to complete goals whilst being sniped by a jumpy skeleton.
The survival part comes in where you have to cut down trees to create tools and all that sort of thing. This is a map that actually lets you play minecraft whilst you play the map, unlike other similar maps that forbid the breaking of blocks. I bite my thumb at them.
Wealth of the World comes with the PigCraft texture pack by the same creator. I tried playing with it but didn’t find that it really added a whole lot to the experience. No matter how many people try to ‘improve’ the mineral textures, the default texture pack really does seem to have them beat at the outset. Because they don’t really matter, precious minerals are scattered all over the map, there are diamonds for everyone!
This is definitely a special map, one that survival and adventure players will both enjoy. The CTM mechanic fits in neatly and isn’t there only to compensate for the otherwise meaningless nature of the map. (That is to say, this map has some kind of inherent merit.)
Ah, that’s enough words. Go download it and play it! Collect those eggs and sacrifice them to the creeper gods!

A minecraft survival map with amazing scope, Eldaria Island is a very large survival map encompassing unique biomes, a custom nether and a true survival experience that is not limited to a box or an island in the sky but which extends for thousands of blocks in every direction.
This is the sort of survival map that will require multiple bases, a great deal of travel by boat and foot and the spark of adventure that lives inside those who are true explorers. This is one map that must be played to be understood. Whether you make your home in a lofty treetop or at the top of a massive desert mountain, it will be many hours before you tire of the spectacular terrain.
There is also the option to download the map in creative and hard mode versions, so players who want to either explore at speed or grind their way through the terrain at a more dangerous pace can do that if they want to.

It’s not the height that gets you, or the falling – so much as it is the suddenly hitting the ground. In Extreme Heights Minecraft Survival Map, you must do your level best to ignore the call of the void as you scale tall mountains and precarious slopes to gather the precious resources essential to your continued survival.
The map is fairly large, which doesn’t make it any easier. Those of us accustomed to survival island maps might scoff when faced with terrain that stretches beyond the available view distance.
It’s pretty difficult too, more difficult than you might imagine because the place is filled with monsters because the map demands that you not play on easy. You might want to play on easy anyway because the simple act of finding a tree to craft a simple sword with is not as easy as you might imagine.
For a new kind of survival map paradigm, download Extreme Heights Minecraft Survival map and enjoy the process of accidentally falling off things and desperately punching solid rock with your bare hands.
