Hey guys! So, "Cave-In" is a minigame created completely in the latest snapshot versions of vanilla MC. (14w11a specifically...) This game started out as a simple concept for an MC mechanic. Since then, it's gotten progressively more complex, and I can finally say that it is at the point of being an actual, playable (and pretty darn fun) minigame. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed making it!

This map requires one of the newer snapshots for 1.8. It was created in 14w11a, so anything that or beyond should work fine. If you open it in 1.7.4 or earlier, you will need to re-download the world file, as it will likely be corrupted.

How to Play
When the game begins, you are teleported to a walled off arena, and are issued a three second countdown. When the countdown ends, blocks start falling from high above you, following any move you make. Your goal in the game is to climb whatever mountain you have formed with the falling blocks, until your feet are above a certain height which is marked off by a layer of particles. There are four base game difficulties, two unlockable difficulties, and two more unlockable bonus levels. Each one provides for a different experience, making it new and challenging each time! The map download includes a manual, directly in front of you when you first spawn, which explains everything more in-depth.

To install the map, follow these directions: Tutorial
Warning: The game will not work in 1.7.2! You must use the latest snapshot!
In order to use the right version, please follow this tutorial: Snapshot Tutorial

This map is multiplayer compatible, in that multiple people can be online at once while the game is played. Only one player can be playing the minigame at once, but spectating is allowed and encouraged.

Would it be okay with you if I could make my own minigame based on this concept?

to be clear, I don't have any intentions as to plagiarise your creation or modify any part of the map or gain any kind of money from your own work. (I'm strongly against that kind of think, myself)

I just want to know whether or not you're okay with me using the same concept of falling blocks that spawn above your head that you must use to escape, for a multiplayer minigame.
I don't want to copy your work or anything, and what I intend on doing is just going to comprise of a single "round", no fancy unlockables or difficulty levels like you've done. I just really like this concept and wanted to know if you were okay with this before I do it... ^-^'

Here's a link to my project btw if you wanna check it out: Pixel Party!

(PS: I would have PM'd you but I'm not sure whether that would have bothered you or not)

Hey, it's no problem at all! As long as it's not a replica or copy, it should be fine. (I'll be making Cave-In 2 in the future) Also, sorry for the late response, life has been a bit hectic recently.

Thank you for checking, it is very appreciated.
