This wonderful map includes a thorough, voice-driven story that adds to the atmosphere and makes it more immersive than most maps you'll play. When you play, you are challenged to use abstract thinking and come up with outlandish solutions to difficult puzzles. Each level presents an incomplete building site and you must explore your way and find the solutions!

  1. I’m quite surprised you guys haven’t checked out lightbox… I’ve done my own review but the map is amazing for a puzzle map and has a near 5 start review on minecraftmaps!

    Everything is fully custom and I’ve seen it in a top 10 for a fellow map tester: minecraftmapsreveiw

    Any-ways loved the list and hopefully you like this suggestion too!
    (I prefer it on V1.8 compared to the V1.5 people play which is not as amazing)
