Top 10 Best Minecraft Maps

1. Survival Island

So what? It’s just an island, right?

Wrong. Like Optimus Prime, there is more to this island than meets the eye.

The gameplay isn’t far removed from traditional Minecraft, but the difference here is that you must survive using the limited resources available on the island. Rumors of buried treasure exist…

The author provided two simple rules for maximizing your enjoyment:

  1. Don’t leave the Island.
  2. Play on at least Normal difficulty.

2. Vechs’ Super Hostile Series:

This isn’t just a map. This is a whole suite of maps — ten, to be precise — designed to challenge players. It could be low amounts of a critical resource, or deviously placed monster spawners or traps, but the idea is to put pressure on the players.

All maps have a built-in goal system, based around completing a Victory Monument. To complete the monument, the player must acquire the appropriate blocks and place them in their correct slot on the monument — all while surviving the super hostile world.

3. Broville:

This isn’t Little Italy, bro. In the town of Broville, you can find hidden treasure, forgotten tombs, secret rooms and passages, lost ruins.

4. Aramis

Also known as Imperial Lands — possibly; it’s unclear — this massive RPG map consists of 11 cities, 3 secret empires, 8 villages, and more than 250 quests. The world itself was inspired by the likes of Oblivion, Morrowind, Fallout 3 and Assassins Creed 2.


  • More than 250 detailed quests, similar to The Elder Scrolls and Fallout ones.
  • More than 40 hours of gameplay.
  • 14 huge cities/empires.
  • Payment system with jobs.
  • 8 villages, each one with an interesting quest line.
  • A 20 minute long rollercoaster/minecart railway system.
  • Money system.

6. EscapeCraft

Escapecraft is a room-escape puzzle game in which you decipher clues, solve riddles, and exploit the idiosyncratic physics of Minecraft.

The map comes with a few ground rules:

  • Don’t break blocks unless you place them.
  • Difficulty must be set to Normal or Hard
  • No cheats.

Watch the YogsCast’s playthrough, above.

7. EscapeCraft 2

The first Escapecraft was such a success that it spawned an entire series. This second installment features more than a dozen new puzzle rooms, two different endings, a functional respawn, and minimal game-ending failure penalties.

Watch the playthrough, above.

8. The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth has players battle through a variety of rooms, each with its own style and challenges. Obstacles involve fighting waves of mob spawners, jump puzzle areas, climbing levels, mazes, minecart obstacle courses, and more.

9. EscapeCraft 3

Another installment from the popular series, this version features dozens of rooms, two endings, a custom texture pack and even more devious puzzles.

Watch the developer’s commentary, above.

10. NewCraft/Vector City

This impressive city reminds me of Grand Theft Auto’s cities. Multiple districts, an airport, rails, a bridge… there’s just so much to see here that you’ll need to check it out for yourself.

Fortunately, you can watch this video of the rail system giving you a tour:
