At first, this seems to be one of those maps that would be awesome if only you could work out what you’re supposed to be doing. I’d therefore classify this as a difficult parkour / survival map, made all the more difficult by the fact that the castle you’re jumping around is very, very high in the sky, so any slip means a long drop followed fairly quickly by a respawn.
This is not a map for parkour beginners, this is a map for people who have honed their skills, who see possibilities where others only see dead ends. Castle Jump requires the reflexes of a capuchin and the fearlessness of a pitbull. Can you beat this hard minecraft parkour map?

Treasure Farm is an almost dead farm waiting to be carefully tended back to life by a player with a green stump. (Minecraft Steve doesn’t really have fingers or thumbs, does he?)You start out on a large chunk of dirt with a bit of sand floating about the place too. Your job is to farm this chunk with all of your farmer-ly might.
In order to create a farm, you’re going to have to unearth all the hidden chests (this is where the ‘treasure’ part of things comes in). It’s a simple premise for a simple map – which is almost always an indication of a very good minecraft survival map in my experience.
Want challenges? There’s more challenges for this minecraft map than space to list them, that’s how many challenges there are.Treasure farm has a bunch of mod specific challenges too, so if you’re playing with Mo’Creatures, Pam’s Harvestcraft, or More Creeps and Weirdos those mods can be incorporated into your survival experience. I’m liking this emerging trend of including mods in maps, as long as they’re optional, maps that require mods aren’t as fun because mods are still cumbersome to install and uninstall.
Whether you’re looking for a simple minecraft survival map, or a survival map that is fun to play with mods, I recommend Treasure Farm.

Cleardell Island is a sandy beach island located in the middle of a beautiful, seemingly endless, blue sea. As it turns out, it doesn’t really much matter if the sea is endless or not becauase you’re not allowed off the island.
There’s an (optional) mod that comes with this map, a melon juice mod. Your mission, if you choose to installit, is to plant melons, craft adorable little glass cups and survive solely on melon juice. I heartily approve of this challenge because it is a charming break from the usual ‘build a house’, ‘build a cobblestone generator’ challenges, which are also included with this map beecause tradition. One of these days I’m going to build a survival map made entirely out of cobblestone and still insist that people build a generator.
Anyway, Cleardell island is a pretty solid survival island map, something fresh and summery for the long winters in the northern hemisphere. There’s a lot of sand to deal with, a few palm trees to sip your melon juice under and a bunch of challenges to keep you entertained until help doesn’t come.

I reviewed this map back when it was in its early stages and was just blown away by it then. This is a map of the entire planet earth made, to scale, in minecraft. It’s huge of course, just under half a gig of data to download but man oh man is it basically the perfect minecraft map. With the minecraft earth map you can finally live your dream of conquering the world without reality getting in your way. From the great deserts to frozen wastelands, this is a snapshot in time compiled by using satellite images from NASA to render the world as it was around the end of the 21st century.
Was that a Matrix reference? Oh yes, because you are now free to create your own matrix on this landscape. There are no cities, but there are signs where cities are currently located, so if you want to rebuild New York or Paris and give yourself a penthouse apartment that looks out over the Champs y Broadway, that’s doable. This really is an exciting minecraft, one of the very few ‘must downloads’ out there. It comes in two formats, SSP and SMP, so you can play it singleplayer and multiplayer.

A survival CTM map, Giant Creeper Survival involves a really, really giant creeper. A creeper many hundred times your size. Your mission? To dissect the creeper, find all the colored wool blocks and complete the monument.
The first challenge this map throws at the player is actually getting to the creeper. Bridge building is therefore a very important skill.
As the sun sets on your first day on the small island in the sky, the fire in the creeper’s eyes seems to grow higher, inviting you into its dangerous belly. If you’re playing on anything other than peaceful, you’ll behold the touching, yet entirely creepy vision of baby creepers being spawned in the mouth of the mother creeper.
Exploration is quickly rewarded in this survival map, so don’t be shy to tear down every structure you see. The innards of the creeper are a dangerous place to be sure, but there are rewards for those who valiantly persist in their mission despite the many dangers.
