Shatter Sky Island Minecraft Survival Map

Shatter is very much like many other sky maps except for the island upon which you would have found yourself residing has exploded and you have to rescue your dog and perhaps a Testificate from one of the shattered isles, as it were.

There are more achievements than there are fingers on my hands, which means that there are a whole lot of achievements for you to, er, acheive. Some of them don’t seem to be entirely meaningful, like creating five snow golems. Others are steps along the way to creating a grand metropolis in the sky full of happy villagers and their iron golem watchmen.

As with other minecraft sky survival maps there is a certain risk associated with falling whilst carrying sensitive and important blocks.

A good solid survival map with the capacity to send you over the edge (that’s the literal in game edge, not the real world edge,) Shatter Survival Island is one to add to your minecraft map download list!

Bedrock Survival, Minecraft Survival Map

I’m always on the lookout for simple minecraft survival maps that do something a little different, and this ‘Hell Gate’ style minecraft survival map certainly does that. It comes with one obvious goal – to complete the nether portal and escape into the hell dimension. That means getting diamonds and if one thing comes hard in minecraft, it’s diamond.

You begin the survival map on a small island of bedrock in the middle of a very large lake of lava. It’s the sort of predicament that makes your daemon self feel homesick. (The map maker doesn’t specify that you’re a daemon, that’s my own imaginings kicking in by way of explanation for being marooned in lava whilst trying to make it to the nether. If being a daemon bothers you, you could equally well imagine that you are an angel trapped in the lava lands who must travel through the nether to escape back to the ‘real’ world where people need you. That was probably the plot of ‘Touched by an Angel’ at least once. If you don’t know what ‘Touched by an Angel’ is, let me just say that the 80’s were a special time – you should have been there.

You should also play this survival map, because it’s different, it’s interesting and your skin looks really good in the lava light.

Slimepocalypse Hard Minecraft Survival Map

Slimepocalypse is a hard mode survival map that will require every little bit of your slime evading skill to finish – or indeed, start. With a rudimentary reward and leveling system, this map isn’t just challenging, it’s also fresh and fun. Like an acne product targeted at teenagers, except with more slime.

I lasted approximately thirty seconds on my first attempt at this world, hence my choice of graphic for representing this map. This map is, in short, hard. If you rush into situations rashly, or if you trust in the powers of a single wooden axe to protect you, you will not last long. You need to think outside the box if you’re going to make it through your first night.

The leveling system runs right up to level 80. After that point you ‘unlock’ a chest containing a bunch of goodies that would have come in handy several hours earlier. In that respect this map emulates some of the greatest RPGs of all time.

You can’t respawn of course, but you can always re-extract the map. Some might call that cheating. I call it the only way to actually play the map. Because it’s hard. Really hard. Did I mention that it’s quite difficult? If the slimes don’t get you, the invading zombies and skeletons (complete with new pathfinding AI that makes it easy for them to walk right into your sanctuary and devour you) will.

Avalon Sky Island Minecraft Survival Map

Fond of the tales of Camelot? Of medieval knights and dragons and damsels in distress? You’ll potentially run into two of those three things playing Faraway Avalon, a minecraft sky island survival map. A castle to explore makes survival all the more exciting on this floating island in the sky. There are secret panels and passages to uncover, not to mention hidden rooms filled with spiderwebs and other useful items of, well, usefulness. Not all the passages are safe however, so best to be careful when exploring. Sometimes it is much easier to get into things than it is to get out of them.

Players looking for a whimsical survival experience will have a lot of fun with this map, which builds on the basic survival experience without going quite so far as an adventure map. With this new island world as your own, you become the master of all you survey, build your sky island kingdom to greatness or farm enough creepers to blow the whole thing, er, sky high.

Survive Under Lava, Minecraft Survival Map

The trials of surviving in a box of glass in the middle of a lava flow are not as many and varied as one might imagine, but the challenges that do exist are pretty serious. There’s plenty of dirt to work with in the big box o’ supplies, but not so many grass blocks, and grass doesn’t spread as well when it is so close to molten rock. Funny that.

If you get sick of the lava everywhere, travel to the nether is possible if you manage to make a mold for obsidian. If you then make yet another mold in the nether, you could make it out into the normal world – what a great and grand that would be!

This is a very simple survival map perfect for simple survivalists who don’t need all the thrills.
