Minecraft 1.5.2 Maps

minecraft 1.5.2 maps

Minecraft (especially the latest version, Minecraft 1.5.2) is a fantastic game with almost unlimited creative potential, but what do you do when you don't feel like remaking the Forbidden Palace in the game, or when a putting together a log cabin just isn't enough to sate your pursuit of fun? After all, there's only so much time you can spend on developing  single map. 

The beauty of Minecraft 1.5.2 is that you don't have to be able to create maps to enjoy the game, for there are already pre-existing maps created by the community in the form of adventure and survival maps that invite players to create their own adventures through pre-made stories developed by storytellers intent on sharing their adventures with the public. 

You'll find 20 such maps contained within the following pages. 

#20 Misty Skull

This one is a map that heavily features fighting various mobs, and on top of it all comes with an actual story, which is rare for Minecraft maps. It’s a pure adventuring map, so no mining or building is allowed.
