A redstone based minecraft adventure map, now there’s something different. I say adventure map, this is pretty much a comprehensive redstone tutorial masquerading as an adventure map. They’re trying to make us learn! They’re trying to make us learn! Persevere through the first couple of lessons however and you’ll be treated to thrills and spills as the map maker turns his knowledge of redstone on you, plunging you to certain death only to rescue you at the last moment and laugh about it. Ho ho ho. Merry lava everybody!
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to use redstone to create impressive hidden doors, traps and minecraft machines, then this is a map you simply must play. Spend a little time wandering around the initial levels to grasp the basics, then get blasted into oblivion as the map maker wreaks his power upon thee. There’s fun and challenges ahead, and a solid puzzle solving element as well.
There’s also a scoring system based on how many gold and iron ingots you can find in hidden and not so hidden chests, so for those who are motivated by the notion of numbers as a measure of success, there’s something for you here too.
The texture pack is largely based on the default textures, but adds a few modern touches, like glass doors, which make for a pleasantly scientific look, but confuse the heck out of some players on their first play through *cough* me *cough*. There’s a few other textures that add to the ambiance as well, like the Professor Perk, who pops up after the first few rounds to gently point out the fact that the computer has gone rogue and the rest of the map will be spent with the computer trying to hurt you.
And that, my friends, is where the adventure really picks up. Gluts of fire rain down upon you as lava soaks across the floor and your knowledge seems too pitiful to save you. For an exciting and adventurous map of minecraft redstone learning….
