Description
"You awake on a desert island, picked up by a stranger and with no memories of what happened. Soon you discover the secrets of the Island, which will only leave one thought in you mind: Escape!"

"Escape Island" is a adventure-puzzle map compatible with 1.4.6. It contains all sorts of puzzles including following the clues on the surface of the island and thereafter escape room for room underground. You should bring along some basic knwoledge of Minecraft physics including a little bit of redstone knowledge (Don't worry, you'll figure it out anyways, sooner or later). There's a simple Plattforming and running task but despite that, it's a puzzle map, no mobfights! (for all you who hate mazes, me too, but still theres something, that could be a maze, i like to look at it more like many small puzzles in a small tower you have to walk through.) A decent storyline leads you through the Game and keeps you entertained for at least an hour, depending on how smart you are. In addition, there are 116 Diamonds hidden all over the map, can you find the all?
Oh and there's even cake!

Announcement: If you like hard puzzles and good Story, make sure to check out my second Map: http://www.minecraft...land-v31-is-up/

NOTE: there are no notes in here for the Game, all the texts are written completely on the signs. No. means Number, not Note

I'm Swiss, so you have to excuse my bad English, please also report about spelling mistakes on the signs.
I used MCEdit for making the huge ocean, the fundament of the island and the walls of the Glasstower-Room. Everything else was done by hand, items from InvEdit.



Thanks for Gaming!

Really good map! 8.5/10.

I didn't really like the whole maze idea, however, it was a well put together maze and puzzle map. I would have loved it if it were longer and the story was good at first but then reminded me of portal a little bit.

Overall it was a  really well made map and the story was average . so keep up the good work! :SSSS:

Hey everyone

First, THANK YOU for your awesome replys
This was my first puzzle map, but now i'm already planning on a second. Not like this, more mystlike (don't ecpect it too soon, it'll be HUGE ;-))
Well i really lacked a bit of story-ideas half-way through, but portal's also cool, ain't I right?
Especially thanks to dasjones and Raininjah for reporting the bugs. They got fixed and the fixed map is uploading right now.

Good work!

8/10

Your mistakes:

~ Glass maze hurt eyes

~ Some errors in Glass maze

~ You forgot to add [TRASH] after every puzzle (I got some cobblestone, cacti and other blocks after every puzzles).

@volchonokilli

thanks for the diamonds!

but for the bugs:
-Your eyes hurt? - Maybe you need glasses.. no just kidding. well nothing to do about that acually. I won't make it stone or something.

-Bugs in the glass maze. I just played the part again, but only thing I found was a redstone torch I used to build

-How the hell did you get cobblestone! I did not mean to place a trash sign after every room, just where previous items could give you advantage  in the following room. I don't think thats the case now, not?


However I've just released
v1.2, deleting the previous mentioned redstone torch and fixing the bug where the door is open at the second Trash sign.

Ok I done a bit of work today, watching MinecraftingTipps Let's play and running through myself, and if i didn't forget to take the redstone torches away, the map should now be completely bugfree!
some bits have changed a bit.

-where you drop down in the long hallway:
now there's lava under the water which will eleminate the pressure plate on top of the tnt.
I guess that you all dived for the pressure play to continue, actually, that wasn't intentional and now theres just a pressure plate in front of the door anyway.

-On the island, underneath the farm, i hide the redstone torch, so you can't cheat ;D

-added one extra TRASH after the part with the three missing redstone Dusts

Firstly Very good map! :YFlower:
Me and my friend did a play through and you could use it for the video section if you would like.
Map 10/10 really enjoy it and great story line

PS: fountain spelling is wrong and also problems with the the room full of TNT because it is very hard to get into the water.

Thanks to you Guys, the map just hit the 500 downloads mark today!!!

Thank you veeeeryy much and also thanks for the awesome reviews.

@jc202
another playthrough would be great, if you send me a link, i'll take a look at it.
Thanks for the information, how is fountain spelled right then?
and for the TNT room, you're actually meant to break the TNT above the button, probably gonna add a rule "breaking TNT is allowed" or something like that.

However, i'll note the erorrs for now, and as long there's no big bug in the game, i'll spare some small ones for the release of 2.2

It was a really good. I would give it 9/10 because I liked the way it turned from very easy to hard very smoothly, not like in other maps where there is like one really easy puzzle and one really hard one.

i have played around 10 puzzle maps, but this is my favorite as far.

only place i didn`t understand was the obsidian room with one TNT so i just cheated. I`m really looking forward to your next map now :iapprove:

maybye you should have added some kind of score system or something like that.

the storyline should have been better.

But anyways a good map and you sir deserve a cookie for making this map :D
