We've put together this list of the best puzzle maps to provide you with five unique map options so that you can save your best detective work for the game.

Best Minecraft Puzzle Maps

Test your puzzle-solving skills by challenging all five of these maps.


Evergrowth: Download Page

Version: 1.20.4

Gamemode 4's Evergrowth puzzle map does simple block-pushing puzzles in a challenging and appealing way. The map has its own resource packs that make it look like a run-down factory setting. It also incorporates mechanisms like magnetization and teleportation in its puzzles to make them more unique and challenging for players. This prevents Evergrowth from feeling too repetitive while keeping its puzzles relatively easy to understand. Of course, that doesn't mean that they're easy to solve! Each puzzle will require you to look at the situations in detail to find the correct solution. Luckily, the game comes with puzzle reset and move undo buttons if you make a mistake.

Be-Boxed: Download Page

Version: 1.20.1

Playing Be-Boxed is like playing a puzzle flash game in Minecraft. It was created by FingerMaps and Technodono. Within it, you play as a little green slime named Blobby. You go through level after level of puzzles, using Blobby to move objects to get a key. You'll move to the next puzzle once you grab a key. It was a very relaxing experience for me, and it felt like I'd gotten a second game for free.

Luigi's Mansion: Minecraft Edition

Luigi's Mansion Minecraft Edition: Download Page

Version: 1.20.2

This puzzle map by DanTheDude is a recreation of the popular game Luigi's Mansion! It features three game modes—Freeroam, Key Hunt, and Coin Run. The first mode allows you to explore the mansion freely, while the other two have you searching for either hidden keys or coins. I have never played the Luigi's Mansion games, so I found the puzzles moderately difficult and enjoyable. If you've played the original games before, you may find this map's puzzles easier than I did.

The Tribute

The Tribute: Download Page

Version: 1.19+

The Tribute by Camber is a map in which you solve puzzles by observing the environment around them. Each puzzle is a line puzzle, meaning you must walk through a certain path to complete the puzzle. There isn't a tutorial or in-depth instructions, making this map truly all about your observation skills. It isn't easy, but that makes completing a puzzle on the map much more satisfying.

Chromaticity II: Luminosity

Chromaticity II: Download Page

Version: 1.20.2

Chromaticity II is the sequel to ZlijahMaps' original Chromaticity, and is a puzzle map all about color theory! In Primaries Mode, you charge pillars by walking into them while holding their respective colors. To change colors, you must use the limited RGB pillars available to collect either red, green, or blue and add them to the color you're currently holding to charge the next set of pillars. There are plenty of levels to play through, plus a second mode called "Spectrum Mode" to play through.
