In the middle of a vast ocean is a towering pillar of rock, grass and minerals. Actually, four towering pillars, with rocky outcrops and grassy knolls and all the rest of that sort of thing. Here you will train. Here you will learn. Here you must survive.
I began the map by choking in a stone wall and respawning at the foot of the map. This taught me something about life and the nature of wanting. I’m not sure if this is a typical experience for the average minecrafter, but it was mine.
The greatest experience comes in ascending the towers, however, also like life, things tend to get harder the higher you go. But the rewards for piercing the cloud layer are great, so onwards and upwards blocky traveller.
Here’s a hint: as above, so below. Do not be afraid to dig as much as you climb. Do not be afraid to dive as well as soar. Oh, and watch out for the creepers and whatnot, the towers can be a hostile place, especially on many of the plateaus, which must be civilized and explored thoroughly.

The impossible maze is an interesting minecraft map, and when I say ‘interesting’ I mean ‘challenging, confusing and brain melting’. If you’re looking for a minecraft map that not only makes you think, but demands it, then The Impossible Maze might very well be the minecraft map for you.
I felt a rush of pride when I managed to get through the first puzzle without punching the puzzle into oblivion. Like most minecraft adventure and puzzle maps, the breaking of blocks is not encouraged, or allowed.
There aren’t many minecraft maps where you actually sort of end up wishing that you’ll die because you’re so hopelessly lost you’ve got no idea or hope of ever escaping the trap that was laid out as a trap before you even walked into it. This is a map that goes on and on and on and on and on and on, the maze truly is massive. Before you walk into it you have a chance to grab a few torches to mark your way. These could be incredibly useful if you actually use them.
I’m not saying you’ll enjoy this. Rage quitting may very well be in your future, but this is definitely an intense minecraft map, one which will test your puzzle and maze solving skills to their very limits. Are you ready, ratties?

Minecraft survival maps have become increasingly abstract since their inception. Where islands once flourished now mere blocks are considered sufficient basis for a survival map. Seth Bling’s SkyGrid survival map takes the theme to its possibly illogical conclusion by placing random environmental blocks in a grid.
There are no rules in this map because you’ll be hard pressed to even play the thing. The appeal of SkyGrid comes in making sense out of chaos, of turning a jumbled mass of elements into something coherent. In more than one way, playing SkyGrid is akin to handling the universe in the moments after the Big Bang.
It’s hard to say whether this is technically a ‘fun’ map. There’s the thrill of repeatedly plunging through the grid before being able to catch yourself again, there’s the wild disorientation that comes from being surrounded by the pure expression of the concept of randomness and there’s the drive of the desire to build a nice house and hide yourself away from the madness that is the outdoors. Whether your enjoy it or not, SkyGrid has already claimed its place among minecraft survival map classics.

Stratosphere survival minecraft map is basically a sky island map multiplied and built up and developed and sent to school and come back with a degree in philosophy and telling you how consumerism is a waste of time and eventually ending up unemployed. I may have overextended that metaphor but don’t let that put you off the map, this is a brilliant and wildly popular minecraft map with over 50,000 downloads. That’s right, over fifty thousand downloads.
Why so popular? Perhaps it is because from the moment you spawn you see brilliant and exotic locations in the distance, locations that can only be reached by sustained effort and mammoth bridge building. This is a deluxe survival map, a survival map that gets back to basics whilst also reaching forward to a future where creativity is cannibalized for the baser needs of survival.
Because of the scope and mass of the islands you’ll be working on survival for quite some time, all the while teetering over the inevitable void, whose yawning maw always waits for a misstep, an accidental double forward arrow press that sends you sprinting into the great beyond, so watch your step and your face and the rest of you too.

Like many fine adventure maps, this one starts off with robbing the graves and homes of the dearly departed. Then you run through an awful lot of tunnels and jump over fiery lakes of lava and sort of halfway pay attention to the story that’s unfolding all around you.
Only being able to sleep at night makes things a tad odious as you have to stand around and wait for night to fall. Also falling into pits of lava gets pretty old too. Parkour elements are all very well and good, but when you lose the only bow and arrows and sword you have in it then that’s not exactly great. Be sure to put your weapons in the chest when it tells you to do it.
Perilous redstone traps and tricks are the order of the day, so be ready for everything and anything. You’ll need your wits, speed and crafting skills to get you through this very challenging adventure alive. Seriously, remember to save at every bed, even if it means waiting until night falls, because you never know what’s coming around the corner.
