[Adv] Prof. Grizwald and the Curse of the Pyramid (50,000+ DL's)
Posted 24 January 2011 - 04:25 AM
I went and created a custom adventure-type map, and I think its ready enough to be played in mass. This is my first attempt at anything like this, so be nice
Get ready for Professor Grizwald and the Curse of the Pyramid! : http://chronobasherm... ... -maps.html
Be sure to read the ReadMe and Rules before playing Don't cheat.
-Secrets! 5 hidden chests with diamond gear tucked away along the "path" of the game. (and a very satisfying noise will signal when you find one)
-A story (made with .txt files) that gives you hints/maps to the next area of interest.
-Plenty of monsters and good times.
The few people that play tested said it took them around 2 hours to finish the map and locate all the secret chests. If you take the time to play through, I'd love any feed back and comments you guys have about the map. Too hard/easy? Sections you don't like? Sections you loved? How long it took you to beat, ect.ect
Short teaser of the first few minutes:
and some pics!
[size=150] Having trouble or got lost? Can't find the secret chests?

I didn't really understand the redstone puzzle. It seemed that no matter what switch I pressed, nothing seemed to happen in the redstone area of the room. Maybe put another note or just a couple of sign's explaining what to do cause I was kinda lost at that part.
The Diamond part at the end was kind of a bastard move but it looked spectacular.
All in all, I had a fun time playing it, and for your first adventure map, you are miles ahead of a lot of other people. 7.5/10 Great work.

Bump with some more previous player impressions:
take the diamond. go on, it's not like it's cursed or anything.
...thank you for making this. I will reiterate and say this is the most fun I've had in minecraft since building my first fort -blackmage795
And a very short teaser...
Please give my map a shot and leave some feedback

However, there's a rule alot of people handle: 'pictures or it didn't happen'.
Those are mostly the people that pee in their pants, fearing for virussus on each single thing, but ofcoarse there are other reasons: People want to know what they download.
Sure, they know it's some piramid adventure map, but with pictures they can see what it looks like.
As for making pictures:
-Make pics of diffrent things and aspects of the map. Don't make multiple pictures of one thing, there's no use for that.
-Make pictures of the things that look the best of the entire map.
Follow that, and people will go all "Whoa, looks nice! I'm gonna download!" instead of "Omg no pics it's a viruz!" or "What the picture shows me doesn't look anything good. I don't see much else too. Nah, not going to download." or "Trolololo random flame because this looks like shit".
I'll download this later, sounds promising!

But, I don't really see a piramid.
I thought about it, and I decided I didnt want to spoil it. You must play to see it!
