The Darkest Night

Map Info:
Edward Nigma, also known as the Riddler, has recently been let out of Blackgate prison on good behavior, but soon, Gotham city begins experiencing a major crime spree. At the scene of each, a riddle was left detailing where he would strike next. It didn't take a genius to figure out what was going on, and as Batman, it is your duty to stop the madman.

Each riddle has its own level of complexity, gradually moving up as you progress, and at points, you must make moral decisions about the lives of innocent civilians; (Pull the wrong lever, people perish) Along the way, you will stumble upon many obstacles, parkour challenges, and even other Batman villains, but as the riddles grow harder and the nights grow longer, you wonder if you'll ever find him...


1. The only blocks you are allowed to place are redstone related. (Buttons, levers, etc)

2. You are only allowed to destroy blocks if a book or sign tells you to.

3. READ ALL BOOKS AND SIGNS! They contain the riddles, which are imperative to the story.

4. Don't cheat and guess on riddles. Actually try to decipher them and use the buttons and levers you find accordingly.

5. The only time you are allowed to switch to creative is if you are to die and lose an item that was crucial to the plot. (button, lever, etc) You may switch over and spawn a new one, but immediately switch back.


-Some of the riddles are very complex. Read them carefully and pay very close attention to words in "quotes."

-Gameplay ranges from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

-There are several areas where you are able to be a hero. Attempt to rescue as many civilians as you can from certain doom, and post how many you saved on the forums.

-There will be signs telling you what difficulty to keep the game on along the way.

-Post your thoughts and scores of your playthrough on the forums and thanks for downloading! Blakeyboy313

When you've completed the map, try out the sequel: The Enigma.

-3 agreementz Quoting UnhappyMom:
Great but you should cut out the swearing little kids play minecraft

I definatly agree with you (even though i havn't played it). if there is swearing in it, put a notice before gameplay actually starts. However, if that helps, it would be a god sent

+4 Beckelator I loved this map, though there was a small issue with getting to the batcave, as the book says NEAR the bookshelf, I didn't realise it had to be placed ON the shelf itself :L anyway, did a playthrough of it if anyone's up to watch, first part is live at:

+1 ElfMan4233 I SAVED EVERYONE. It was fun and I look forward to playing the sequel. It took me 45 minutes.

2013-05-23 15:02

+2 Jeffrey It was great! The ending "blew" my mind (literally)!

2013-04-21 04:32

+1 MinimiMax RIP Batman. This was an awesome map. The first riddle gave me a ton of trouble and I actually had to look it up from one of the Let's plays. I thought I got it figured out with the text talking about "beginning" and "crying in your arms", and thought it was referring to a baby, which could be found from a hospital.... but there was no hospital. :P But once I figured that out, it was almost too easy. Great work anyway.

+1 Mine_Lantern I'm stuck on the Parkour riddle, please help.

+3 Supermrpunch Finished it, but pressed the wrong lever. There should be a clue!

2013-01-21 01:02

+4 BlakeyBoy313 I found this playthrough quite contradicting, as "The Avengers" are playing it. Hehe,

2013-01-21 00:46

+2 Enigmatoots Hey :) Awesome map...I'm pretty sure we're kinda close to having played your entire portfolio of maps, and they're all really cool lol. Here's our latest playthrough of this map, and we managed to do so badly at it that we dragged it out over 3 episodes. Here's part 1...Enjoy :)

+2 legorox5802 im stuck with the parkour that has dispensers i finished it but it just gives me a button, where do i put it?

2013-01-17 04:05

-7 Nova_Annex I can't solve the first riddle...

2013-01-09 01:09

-6 Ricard the Dragoon The map was short. I put the first button on the the first ? because the 2nd riddle said to go back to the beginning.
Where does it really go?

-3 Lemonaidan Quoting adventuremapman123:
i cant find the batcave

You use the bookcase opposite of the chest and place it in the bottom right corner

-2 Toolazytomakearealna I figured out the police station clue quite easily but got confused when there was no confirmation I was right like you did for the NAME clue
a suggestion that was already said would be to name them

and secondly you should put a clue for which lever is the right one when we drop the civilians (if there was a clue good job at hiding it)

2012-12-06 15:16

+1 MC nerd Blakeyboy313, when you update this map, you should add the "keepInventory true" gamerule that way no-one'll need to go to creative.

2012-12-04 18:50

+3 Alex9 Hey, I have absolutely no idea where to put that first button, think you could help me out?
