If you’ve ever played any maps from the Dropper series, you know they include innovative gameplay and an interesting take on one of the biggest perils in Minecraft, which is long, painful falls. If you’re expecting that from the Run Dropper map, you’re going to be disappointed though. This is about as basic as a parkour map gets, and no, it doesn’t look like everything has been flipped on its side to create a dizzying effect. What you get here is a lot of running and jumping, but you’ll still find plenty of places where you can plummet clumsily to your death on the ground down below.
Because the Run Dropper map is set up above the world and there are few safe places to land once you fall off of it, you’ll be respawning very often. This is one of the things the map does right because there are a number of respawn blocks throughout the map with different levers for the different players. With a flick of a switch, your spawn point is set, not unlike sleeping in a bed. Still, a bed seems like it would have been more reliable because other players can fiddle with your switch on the respawn and mess it up for you. This map is fun overall but there are some very annoying aspects to it.
