A Temple Tale

Map Download


Map info:
A fun map with (depending on skill) 1-3 hours worth of adventure. This map is designed for both solo and 2-4 player co-op, so good to bring some friends along to join in the fun!

Texture Pack:
Dokucraft, The Saga Continues

You will also need to use MCPatcher to patch your client.

After a rather rough airship landing, you find yourself in a dangerous jungle, surrounded by unfamiliar sounds and smells.

Your only chance of survival is to sit tight and await rescue, but that would be incredibly boring and unfulfilling, so instead you seek out Professor Archibald Cunningham, your expeditions lead researcher, who has snuck off to study the ruins of a nearby temple.

The professor is not the only one interested in the temple, however, and it is not nearly as abandoned as he first thought.

1. No destroying or placing blocks unless told to or hinted within the story. However you may destroy spider webs and place torches.
2. No crafting.
3. Play on normal or hard difficulty.

During your journey you will find Emeralds, each emerald counts for 1 point, there are 35 to be discovered.

Please reply to this thread:


saying what parts you enjoyed, your emerald score, and any other feedback you may have.

Thanks and hope you enjoy the map!

+7 Tank Really good Map. I had to say this but, MAKE A SPAWN POINT. Everytime I got to a lava area. I lose all my items. Nonetheless, this map was fun. I would give it a 9/10

-1 Um Lava fall trap? Really? It was amazingly made but i dont see how that was needed. And i feel like it was meant for co op hence the high amount of mobs at some areas. Anyway good but i didnt finish it as i lost all my stuff and couldnt make any progress after that as mobs killed me.

0 Pulus After I leave the Nether I spawn in a snow biome. Is this supposed to be the end of the map or was this a mistake?

2013-04-27 19:15

-2 mistahchimichonga this map honestly was just a bust. It was also fun, but made me rage about 150000 times due to falling in lava. I reccomend this map if you want a challenge, but not if you hate losing your stuff.

-9 David :I Good map, no offense but a little too challenging and the ending is SUPER confusing.

+5 Jygro Very fun map - searched for a ton of time in one of the pyramids to find the second lever - never did find it and I explored in the cavern behind the room. Other than that, great fun (although I'm horrible at long sprint jumps...

13 emeralds.

0 maddie HELP!! I can not for the life of me find the temple... want to play very mch but everytime I spawn im in a regualr wooded area, and once I enter the jungle I'm lost. Can someone please guide me?

2012-11-15 01:42

+7 Recklessvietnam Very, very skilled work my friend :-)
Keep up the work, and create more spawn points, so we won't waste a lot of time :-)

+11 BestEver One of the best adventure maps I've ever played! Thank you that you have made this map. :DD

+4 Sakira Hey,
just finished this map with my brother and even he had much fun playing it, cause he's always complaining that no map is challenging him enough. You guys did it! :P
Only annoyance: He got more emeralds than I did. Together we had a total score of 25. Seems like we missed some. :D

+5 badeaglex cant wait to play

2012-10-08 02:15

-9 James The puzzles sometimes don't make sense, there should only be 1 answer, not 2 'bounus' rooms tthat confuse people. The lava is crap, just means you loose EVERTHING you've work for in 1 second.

-27 EnderPerson I cant find the damn temple...

Loved this map, really nice building, did miss out a bit on complicated redstone mechanisms, but it was still beautiful. The sad part of course is the respawning issue, (and losing your emeralds in lava >,>), which at some points made the map a bit too challenging. All things aside, overall wonderful map. Really deserves its recognition (y)

+3 Fidgelel It was a great map, until the lava parts when I lost all the supplies I had
