Here is another cool minigame map, courtesy of the new 1.8 features!
MultiVaders is a great take on the classic Space Invaders game that a lot of people know, where you play as a little ship at the bottom of the screen, trying to kill invading alien ships that are slowly descending upon Earth, while simultaneously taking shots at your ship and bunkers. Don’t get hit, and be sure to take cover if you need to!
The map is pretty cool, and surprisingly advanced, there are various settings, control schemes, as well as multiple modes of play!
First off, lets look at the scoring system for the MultiVaders Map:
As you can see, it is pretty straightforward, the alien ships closest to you give you the least points, the ones further up give you more, and so on, with the fast moving ufo giving the most points (as well as activating power-ups).
The map also features three different modes of play, one singleplayer, and two multiplayer modes.
The classic way of playing the game, you are by yourself against the alien horde. Your friends can still spectate you though.
This allows you to team up with your friends in order to take on the alien horde. You get three lives times the amount of players, so your friends dying shouldn’t impair you too much.
Now you are not just fighting the aliens, but also another team. Who you focus on taking out is up to you. If a team hits 0 lives, they have lost. The winning team gets a bonus score for each life they have left.
You can also receive several power-ups throughout the game, 8 in total, and here they are:
Fast Shots: fire faster.
Explosive Shot: killing an alien with one of these shots will also kill nearby aliens.
3 Bullets: you now shoot 3 bullets at once instead of just the one.
Alien Rage (Multiplayer only): the aliens facing the enemy team will shot more frequently.
Laser: destroys any walls and aliens in the line of your ship. Doesn’t affect enemies.
Fire Trail: bullets leave a fire trail behind them, killing any alien who touch it.
Force Field: protects you from enemy fire, but allows you to shoot through it.
Crazy Bullets: makes your missiles go crazy and shoot all over the place. Hence the name!
So a lot of crazy stuff that allows you to better shoot and kill any alien bastards who try to invade your precious earth.
MultiVaders allows you to change various settings about the map, such as:
Difficulty: 4 various difficulties, set if for whatever suits you best.
FOV: allows you to change the FOV. Default is set to 90, can be changed to 70.
Score-o-meter: this can be turned off here in-case you find it annoying.
The map also features a resource pack, which is highly recommended in order to make everything look right. All in all, this is a pretty great and well-made mini-game map, and it is easy to install, works with vanilla Minecraft, and it is fun! So check it out, you won’t be sorry!
