Cube Survival map for Minecraft is survival map created by Adam3945. This map is the second of the most popular map ever created for Minecraft. If standard SkyBlock map or also known as Survival island or Floating island map is too simple and too bored for you, Cube Survival map is an excellent choice.

Compared to Skyblock, Cube Survival map has the same and simple concept, but with more advanced and entertaining approach.
There are seven different cube biomes. Each one has hidden chest full of good stuff and two obsidian blocks and each one had a different danger. Obsidian blocks are needed to make and build the portal to travel to Hell in which you must find and destroy the Book of the Damned.
For more info you must read Quest book which you can find in each chest.

Similar to SkyBlock survival map, but with more advanced and entertaining approach

This map has been made for only one player as the resources are limited and low and all biomes must be thoroughly searched and explored.
