Wonderland, Minecraft Adventure Map

It’s Wonderland, in Minecraft! An adventure map for all the family, and one that is sure to delight any children, or children at heart who love the stories by Lewis Carol.

I will begin with one minor gripe. A gripe that is later proved so minor as to almost not be worth mentioning. As someone who loved the Alice in Wonderland tale, it was a little dissapointing that the fall down the rabbit hole was literally just a fall down a hole that was not at all decorated. Although it happens almost at the beginning of the book, the rabbit hole itself is one of the most strikingly iconic scenes in the entire story.

This is made up for somewhat when one does land in a pool of tears (although there are no mice swimming in it, who, having fallen in have subsequently lost their way.) The opening scene of this minecraft map, as it were, is a room quite mad in a way I can only describe as Johnny Depp.

The glass table with the little box is there and one certainly gets the sense that one is undersized when compared to the rest of the room and its many doors. (Remember, we’re looking for a door just at the right height that leads into a secret garden.)

An amazing narration fits perfectly with this new Minecraft version of the Wonderland tale, complete with sound effects that really bring the world to life.

It was tempting to screenshot almost everything, but I avoided that temptation so as not to spoil the map. Suffice to say, what you see here is just a fraction of the wonders that await you.

This is, quite simply, one of the best adventure maps I have had the fortune to play. It evokes and draws on Alice’s Adventures, allowing you to visit those many whimsical locations – now ridden with minecraft monsters of course. There’s humor around every corner, as well as a very solid adventure experience that can easily be played on peaceful and enjoyed – which is my personal definition of a solid adventure map. If my attention can be held with the story and locations, then the map maker has done his or her job.

Rise of the Pigmen Minecraft Adventure Map (1.3.1)

Pigs. Pigs and bacon everywhere. The internet perks its ears up and takes a sniff. Suddenly, pigmen!

Rise of the Pigmen is the first minecraft adventure map I’ve played that takes advantage of the new minecraft writeable books, a feature I’ve personally been dreaming of for many moons, and with an eighteen page prologue to start the map off, I think we’re going to see some literary hunts in the future that will blow our minds. From the moment you spawn in the branches of a tree like the proverbial rock a bye baby, things start getting very intense and very real.

No time to read eighteen pages of pixellated text? Want to know what you’re getting  yourself into? The TL,DR of the Prologue is that after a bloody war and subsequent period of peace, a voice emerged into the minds of the kingdom’s mages instructing them to build a portal to another realm. You see where this is going, don’t you?

You, the player, henceforth referred to in the game as ‘Magnificent Stallion’ (No, I’m not kidding) must undo the evil done by the foolish mages who listened to the voices in their heads.

Thus begins your adventure as you are directed to a small nearby village where you can do jobs for villagers, earn pay, trade using both the default minecraft villager trading system and an honor system built in by the map maker.

Much like Skyrim and similar games, you can buy homes in villages if you either gather sufficient resources or simply take the key from the right chest. The ‘proper’ adventure update mode has been pushed back to 1.4, so there’s still a lot of honor involved in these maps. The fun thing about buying your home is that you are then able to decorate it with blocks allocated in the home. This, along with the extensive world map creates a sense of immersion not found in many minecraft maps these days.

Oh, did I mention that this game world is large? It’s massive. How massive? This massive:

With a great many RPG elements, including side quests, explorable dungeons and places of interest marked with blue wool balloons,  (plus a place named Winterhold),Rise of the Pigmen really goes deep. This is no shallow map to be dispensed with in a few hours, this is a deep adventure game that will draw you into a whole new world. Aladdin style.

Revenge of the Aliens Parkour Adventure Map

Do you love smashing your minecraft face into objects at high speed? If so, Revenge of the Aliens, a minecraft Parkour / Adventure map that pulls no punches and gives no second tries is the map for you. It’s merciless, which is good, because you don’t deserve mercy. You deserve the pain of progress, the crunching sound of bones and the respawn button to nowhere. Also, Aliens.

This is the third of a three part series in which you play ‘Edward James’ British protagonist and alien slayer extraordinaire. You have already defeated alien threats twice before, but it is a big universe out there and sometimes the aliens aren’t even aliens. With your sidekick and super close friend Tom, you will uncover the mysteries of the ‘aliens’ and leap your way into the history books.

Curse of the Lost Souls Adventure Survival Island Map

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.
