In this new release by the Minecraft Mod Creators, Macaw’s Bridges is now an island with over four hundred and fifty levels. The mod is a part of the “Lepidium pack” for Minecraft. Before we go any further, I want to point out that, this version is not the official mod for the game. This is a fan made version that many people are using as a base for creating their own maps and mods. It is also a great mod to play along side, since it adds a lot of content that wasn’t in the game before.
The story behind Macaw’s Bridges is a simple one. After a plane crash, a young boy named Macaw escaped and started living alone in the wilderness. One day while exploring, he encountered three guardians that helped him get back on the right path. Once they did, they told him that they needed the power of the sea to return home, so Macaw left them and set sail for the mainland.
Unfortunately, after sailing for some time, the captain of their boat became trapped in the middle of the ocean and had to crash land on the island. Now, he has to deal with the hostile natives that have taken over the island. They will kill anyone who gets in their way, which prompts Macaw to find help to get back to the mainland. You can help him out as well, since he needs your help to survive on the island.
The island itself is quite amazing. When you first arrive on it you will notice a very large volcano near the center of the island that houses the ruins of an ancient civilization. Also, there are underground waterfalls and caves that are filled with sharks. You will also find a large turtle that will give you lots of treasure when you get near her.
There are two paths you can take to get to the endings. The first takes you underwater and you will have to fight a large shark to get through. However, the second path is much easier and will not require you fighting any sharks or anything along that route. In the end you will get rewarded with the world map and the ability to build penguin huts on each island that you visit.
The bottom line about this game is that it is an amazing simulation of what the islands were like thousands of years ago. It looks like the natives did not leave any evidence of their existence and even now you can find tools, bones and other types of evidence of their existence. Overall this is a great game that anyone should play if they are looking for an island themed game that is full of puzzles and action. I am definitely going to try out the Macaw’s Bridges sequel when it comes out for Nintendo Wii later this year!
