The Nexus Quandries is a phenomenal puzzle map that’s certainly among the most fascinating puzzle maps that we’ve ever experienced in Minecraft. The thing that defines this map and sets it apart from the crowd is the fact that it features a ton of distinct gameplay mechanics that one wouldn’t usually get to experience in traditional puzzle maps. Also, on top of the distinct gameplay mechanics, the map’s immaculate on a technical level as well so there’s absolutely nothing that would hinder your experience in any way at all. All said and done, The Nexus Quandries is a map that we absolutely recommend if you’re looking for something that’s completely out of the ordinary.
One of the most impressive things about The Nexus Quandries is the fact that it progresses at a really steady pace. One issue that we’ve often encountered throughout our puzzle map experiences is that their progression isn’t linear at all. One level might be rage inducing levels of challenge, but the very next level might turn out to be incredibly easy. This random progression definitely has a negative impact on the overall experience but, thankfully, this isn’t the case in The Nexus Quandries so the experience is quite immersive.
The core gameplay of The Nexus Quandries revolves around placing and breaking wolves in order to solve puzzles to reach the end of the level. At the end of every level, there’s a Nexus that you’ll need to destroy. The map has a total of 32 different levels for players to complete which is a pretty significant amount and, due to this large amount of levels, the gameplay can last somewhere between four to six hours but of course, this time can fluctuate quite a bit depending on how skilled you actually are at solving puzzle maps.
