The Damage Dash map is a truly creative and exhilarating Minecraft puzzle map that’s been targeted towards the audience of players that’s grown tired of playing traditional puzzle maps over the years and wants something that’s completely out of the ordinary. There are many things that set this particular map apart from the crowd and this is why it’s a must play for people who think that the standard formula of puzzle maps has become repetitive over the years. One thing worth mentioning, though, is the fact that Damage Dash is actually quite challenging so, unless you have a strong grasp on the gameplay mechanics of Minecraft, it wouldn’t be a wise choice to play it as you’ll struggle a lot while playing it.
The core gameplay concept of the Damage Dash might seem rather simple on paper since the goal is to solve puzzles and then press the necessary buttons before the timer runs out but the twist in this particular case is that you can only press the button when you have half a heart of health remaining. Successfully solving puzzles while constantly ensuring that you’re left with just the right amount of health at the end can be an incredibly painstaking task but it’s one that gives a great deal of satisfaction when pulled off successfully so, while you might not be able to make your way through the entire map on your first try, it’s likely that you’ll keep going back to it because of how addicting the design is.
The Damage Dash map is available in single player mode only and this is to be expected as the gameplay wouldn’t really suit a multiplayer environment. It’s crucial to remember that the map needs to be played in Adventure Mode on Peaceful with the Smooth Lighting setting turned off because it won’t function as it’s supposed to otherwise. There’s also a resource pack that loads automatically in order to provide players some fitting visuals to enjoy alongside the infuriating yet engaging puzzles.
