Although the name might have you think otherwise, the Fossil Parkour map doesn’t really take place on a pre-historic site filled to the brim with fossils and instead takes place on the remains of a once barren area that was covered in magma and become a parkour playground when the magma solidified. The map definitely has one of the most unique settings that we’ve seen in a while from this map category, and this leads to a refreshing and entertaining experience that veteran parkour map players will definitely want to try out.
In terms of its difficulty, Fossil Parkour is definitely an easy parkour map when compared to the general standard. The easiness of this map primarily comes from the fact that it has plenty of checkpoints, so you don’t really lose a lot of progress even if you misstep and end up losing your life. One small gripe that we have with this map is the fact that while it does feature a distinct setting, it still tends to get slightly dull after a while since the difficulty doesn’t ramp up much and the place looks mostly the same no matter how far you get.
The Fossil Parkour map requires that players have command blocks enabled because it won’t be able to function properly otherwise. The map also needs to be played on peaceful difficulty if you want to play it as it was meant to be played. The great thing about this particular map is that it’s fully compatible with almost all resource packs, so if you’re using a pack when you want to play this map, you won’t need to turn it off in order to enjoy it. Fossil Parkour is available for Minecraft 1.10.2, so you’ll, of course, need to have an up to date version of the game in order to play it.
