The Blockside Hotel is an exceptional finding map that’s certainly among the most creative maps we’ve seen in this particular category. Finding maps in Minecraft have usually revolved around some pretty generic concepts like finding a button or something else in order to complete levels but The Blockside Hotel is a map that elevates the experience to the next level. Instead of finding generic things in a basic setting in which there are absolutely no stakes, The Blockside Hotel revolves around a murder and this leads to a significantly more engaging experience right from the get-go as players actually have something to work towards other than simply reaching the next level.
The gameplay of The Blockside Hotel revolves around a murder that’s been conducted in a hotel and the finding aspect of the map revolves around the fact that players have to find clues in order to figure out who the murderer is so that justice may be served. The overall experience is definitely a lot more experience than that of traditional finding maps because there’s an actual sense of direction and purpose and what’s even more impressive about the map is the fact that it supports multiplayer so you can enjoy it alongside a friend as well.
Compatibility and Technical Aspects
To enjoy The Blockside Hotel, you’ll need to be on version 1.16.4 of Minecraft because this is the only version of the game that the map is compatible with. As for the technical side of things, there don’t seem to be any major bugs so your experience with the map is probably going to be a smooth one.
All said and done, The Blockside Hotel is a refreshing and innovative finding map that provides an experience which is above and beyond what other maps in the category have to offer.
