A minecraft adventure / puzzle map set in an Egyptian tomb, King Spoon’s Tomb is full of dangers for the unwary explorer. Lord Canarvon himself would think twice before setting foot even in the very outermost of chambers of the resting place of the great King Spoon. This is not a map that holds your hand and pets the back of it and tells you how wonderful you are. This is a map that goes out of its way to hurt you in ways that are inventive and amusing if your humor turns in that direction.
The Dropper has one simple requirement for those that play it: survive the fall.
What’s truly fun (and when I say fun, I mean, a good ego check) is that it’s possible for you to fail this simple task almost immediately, albeit in a truly spectacular way. The opening level of ‘The Dropper’ (pictured in the image above) put me in mind of the opening of Alice in Wonderland, tumbling down the rabbit hole. In fact, that’s what this level should really have been called, in my humble opinion. You fall and you fall and you fall and then you realize that the landing is going to have very unpleasant consequences if you can’t figure it out.
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.
ShrinkCraft is called ShrinkCraft because everything is designed to super scale so you feel as if you are a tiny and insignificant creature stuck in a world too large and scary to understand. Just leaping off a simple table will give you fall damage. But the weird perspective is really the least of your worries. This map wins at the outset because it calls you a fatty and then does unspeakable things to you. Elements of parkour make for greater mental cruelty because not only do you have to submit yourself to amusingly terrible fates, you have to work hard to achieve the terrible outcome.
The Lost Paradise is a minecraft map download with a little bit of everything. It begins with a maze and a parkour challenge, so pure survivalists are going to get pretty frustrated right off the bat. Or they’re going to smash out a few lantern blocks and make their own stairs. Because people who can’t jump but like to play survival maps are going to get a lot more out of this map than people who can jump but don’t like survival maps.
This map had me at ‘sorry the accommodation’s terrible, but I hate you.’ I don’t usually play puzzle maps on account of the fact that my problem solving skills rank slightly below those of your average lab rat, but with all the latent hostility in this map, I just had to give it a go. My impressions therefore, come from the perspective of someone ill prepared and ill suited for the puzzle genre of Minecraft maps and should be taken with that in mind.
If you like a) darkness, b) adventure, c) puzzles and d) minecraft, you’re in for a real treat! The Dark Realm is a minecraft puzzle map and a minecraft adventure map all rolled up into one dark archaeological adventure. You are a freshly graduated archaeologist looking to prove your worth by hurling yourself into a cursed temple. It’s the only thing that makes sense.
