Prison of the Monster

Created by Norvieta

Map Info

You are closed in an empty prison with an absolute beast that is so dangerous, it slays anyone who tries to kill him.

The only way to escape is killing it. Its cell has no keys, you need four mysterious stones to open it.

But first, you have to prove your strength on some obstacles to even get the opportunity to fight the Monster.

Many tried, none succeed. Will you be the one?

The First 3 Checkpoints

Before fighting the Monster, there is a short obstacle course to test your abilities. If you are not good enough to kill the Boss, you can't even try to kill it.

This part has three checkpoints, after dying and getting back to the spawn point, turn around and press the button on the emerald block, that will take you back to your last completed checkpoint. If you completed all the three, this button takes you to the boss fight.

To go through the map, you need parkour skills, pace, patience, logic, skills with the bow and the sword (... or whatever weapon you have), seeing in the dark, survive alone, and an important thing: learning from your mistakes.

Detailed information about the three checkpoints at the Hints.

The Zombie Shooter

There is one more thing in the game that I'm very proud of: the Zombie Shooter!

You need this game at the beginning of the Boss fight to get a sword. It's about shooting at zombies for a point, avoiding killing villagers, and after reaching a certain amount of points, you get a sword. The more points, the better sword.

This is one more thing to reach the boss fight, you'll really like this mini game. Pro challenge: beat it with only one arrow!

Why to Try

This really means hours of fun while playing it. This map is not that easy one, made by a 12-year-old child who wanted to show the world.

It took me almost half a year to create, setting up complicated command block systems, and at the final test, it took me 80 minutes with 13 deaths to complete the map as a player - with knowing all the hard parts, all the traps, and all the loopholes.

It even made me angry several times... I promise you, it's hard, but not impossible, it worth a try.


Hints can be found on the PMC page (they are spoilers).

Base Story

The original idea was a smaller map on a Hungarian multiplayer survival server, called LavStud, where I was an Admin. I built the Prison of Herobrine, that players liked so much I built the 2nd and 3rd part of it, and even a 4th, Multiplayer map, played by two players. Now the server was regenerated, maps are lost, but I don't want "The Prison" to die.

As it was a multiplayer server, I didn't use tons of command blocks like I did this time, I used like 50, and everything else was based on redstone systems. This can be seen at the first three checkpoints of my new map, they rarely have a command block in it, but the boss fight is made entirely out of command block systems.

Well, I think, Herobrine is boring, it would be quite gray if the boss was Herobrine, so he is not. It's a surprise. That' the main change, hope you'll like it.

When finished, you can take a screenshot like this and post it, I'd love it.

Can't say I really really enjoyed the map. At the end of the day, it was more tedious than challenging.
It's obvious a lot of testing has been done, and the map has been well tested, but some things have been overlooked such as, well, the hunger bar emptying when you need it to parkour.

+1 Nav nice map
good effort

+2 norvieta Oh a tip: if you're tired of going back to the checkpoint, use the /spawnpoint command after enabling cheats. I disabled them but I know everyone can just turn them on by using two clicks.

+2 norvieta @bilbo, it's intentionally hard, I wanted to create something that is actually challenging even for the best players. However, there are three checkpoints, try to get there. Also, I know it glitches with 2 players, it's because some command blocks have a command for @p (nearest player), some have for @a (all players), I wasn't really consistent about this question. Nevermind, it's a solo map, that's it.

@TigerRules 23, it does, three times on the regular obstacle course. Yes, it's hard, but that is necessary before the Bossfight. The Bossfight won't save your position at all. That's even more harder :)

0 Creeperhunter13 Ultimately It could have been a fun experience if it wasn't so needlessly and utterly difficult. Save points, in any kind of parkour map, is an utter necessity and the lack of them on this map makes it completely and utterly unplayable without having the player want to rage quit. Personally, if I am pushed to the point of where I am not enjoying the map, causing me to fly back to the area I was at because of the lack of checkpoints, this is way too hard. I've played Minecraft maps since I was much younger, and this difficulty level is too high for the average Minecraft player. The design, however, was really good, and if the map had more checkpoints and or less difficult parkour, it would be a really great map.

+1 Bad I could't get past the very first part unless i glitched into the wall and jumped, and once I ran out of hunger and couldn't spring i couldn't get anywhere

2018-03-16 15:00

+1 TigerRules23 I raged quited because it doesn't save where we were

2018-03-09 05:54

0 bilbo some cool things added.. but overall way too hard.. needlessly so. respawning over and over at the beginning, not good either.

also glitches with 2-player
