Map Info:
The Challenge is a singleplayer puzzle map with more than 10 creative redstone powered puzzles! There are NO stupid things where you'll get teleported of the map for pressing a button or the like. There are neither any parkour challenges. The puzzles may require some Minecraft know-how but mostly creative, logical and open mindset. Either you finish a puzzle and move on to the next, or you stay stuck until you figure it out.

The story starts with your strange dream and you find yourself trapped in some sort of maze. Make your way through the entire Challenge and you might just get your freedom.

The Challenge contains more than one road to the end and more than one end.

The rules of the world is briefly explained in the beginning but here they are anyway:
The map is set to adventure mode and cheats are off, so as you might imagine destroying things (anything) by your hands is not allowed and neither is cheating. Some challenges require at least normal render distance to work but most puzzles work on any setting. The difficulty should be set to peaceful.

This is my first puzzle map and it has taken quite some time to make, as I have worked on it periodically. The puzzles can be quite challenging and if you get stuck and want help you can look and ask for further hints in the comments below.

If you haven't played the map and don't want any spoilers or hints I suggest you don't read any comments below.

All feedback is appreciated and I hope you enjoy my map.

New in version 1.2:
- Bugfixes and tweaks.
- The ability to get additional hints.

+1 Yuki I'm not sure if I'm just doing the first one wrong but after trying all possible combinations I looked in the comments for help and they did but after finding what I'm 99% sure is the right combo it still wasn't working so I left that area by jumping out the lava and found an area with what looked to be the exposed Challenge 1 with redstone and sticky pistons exposed so I tried by theory there but the chart would roll of and I had to push it into place to get it to work and realised if this was the same as challenge one then that chart was lost the way I did it only wondering if it is meant to be completed if you press

**** Spoilers for solution ****

+2 Hexx Caster Thank god I found this map. I despise parkour so this is a great thing for me. You should make some more parkour free maps

+1 May I fell down the staircase and ended up in a mini forest.I also pressed the right buttons (gold first)and nothing happened.I have literately been in the mini forest for 30 mins... did i lose?

2015-01-28 00:43

+1 Danerous @JC-Gamer, you are supposed to put it next to the painting upstairs and pull it, you will here a piston if you put it right. Then send the cart down by pushing the button (send it up first if you haven't already using the same button). After that a hallway on the opposite wall from the painting will open up.

I hope the helps :)

+1 JC-Gamer Danerous, how do you get out of the room you was talking about, I take the lever and then I can't get out of the room, thanks

2014-11-22 15:35

+1 Danerous @Minecraft_Pro1 69: It sounds like you have gotten outside the intended map. Where from did you get to the "window room"? Was it after the room with the presure plates and pictures on the wall? If so, did you take the lever and use it to open an iron door? Then that is where you went wrong. The lever is ment to be placed next to the painting upstairs.

Please let me know if this helped or if I've guessed wrong :)

2014-08-08 22:57

+1 Minecraft_Pro169 before the window room where do I go? im stuck I found a door that leads to a room with windows but it has a bunch of redstone in it I don't think that's room im suppose to go to plz help! where do I go before the window room!! thx (if u help)

+3 Timoh Man, that map is awesome. I got stuck even with hints sometimes, but YouTube is awesome. Are you from some Scandinavian country, because I went looking around in the map after I finished. Oh, and a warning in the jungle room not to click the buttons too fast might be nice too, because I think that's the reason I got stuck there. 9/10 would DEFINITELY play again. alowd

+8 Alex Wow. This map was great. Still stump about the ending but whatever.

2014-03-02 02:13

+8 Danerous @KitKatCrystalx o: Thank you! I'm happy you enjoyed it! :)

2014-01-20 16:54

+5 KitKatCrystalxo Really brilliant map, the only puzzle i really struggled on was the first one but i got it eventually, the rest were just the right difficulty to make my brain work and still solve it. Biiiiig well done :)

2014-01-15 20:03

+5 Danerous @Rachel: Thanks a lot for the feedback and the constructive criticism! I'll definitely see what I can do :)

2014-01-08 18:59

+11 Rachel Great map! I needed to break out of the jungle room though, it didn’t work for me. You should maybe look at that and make it work or easier, lots of people seem to be having trouble. But I give this map a 9/10! Amazing, hard but not impossible puzzles, clever story at the end. The only thing I didn’t like was the split ending. What you should do is say “Wrong Ending!” and then let the player go through more challenges to win their way out. But otherwise, excellent!

+6 Kungfu241 I hope you will still reply to comments but i am so stuck on the first one!!!
(p.s how will i be notified when u reply)

2013-12-21 14:15

+6 Danerous @Paul0: They are at the end of the trail. When you come in to the room from the golden piston doors it would be to the right on the other side of the trees and stuff :)

2013-11-27 01:21

+4 Paul0 Hello, I am really stuck in the jungle puzzle, I got that gold goes first and that I have to find buttons on a wall, but I can't find them at all, where are they? i've been searching for about two hours!

2013-11-23 21:50

+2 Danerous @Ruby: It's the head on the painting that is on each side of the wall.

2013-10-07 11:10

+3 Ruby Is there anyway you could upload schematics or point me in the direction of a tutorial for the wall where you move the blocks to match a painting?

2013-10-06 22:21

0 Danerous @TrollingWampa: The puzzle in the jungle or the one with the lava and the picture-wall?

2013-10-02 09:10

0 TrollingWampa I cant seem to finish the last level, I entered in the right code on the door, but it never opened, I waited about 20 minutes and it didn't open.

2013-10-01 22:44

+1 Danerous @chasferg: The top one in the middle furthest to the left should do it.

2013-09-30 14:46

+2 chasferg i have lit up every light but the last one and nothing lights it up

2013-09-22 18:26

-1 calvenable In the room with loads of water, I went up the stairs and they opened and I fell into a room full of water. What do I do now?

2013-08-26 16:09

+1 Someone what do I do after I have turned on the lights on the underground jungle?

2013-08-17 11:06

0 Danerous @Bio: Have you seen the wall with buttons at the end of the trail?

2013-08-04 22:00

0 Bio Hey, I don't know if anyone is still here, but I need help with the puzzle in the underground forest. What are u supposed to do there? Is it a shadow trick or hidden levers or something?
