The Mechanics Adventure Map is a new custom map built for 1.1 by TerrariaOnline.com forum member 'Stackerzgame'. It is a parkour heavy map, with bits of puzzle action thrown in to break up all the jumping action. The map was built specifically with the new mechanical aspects of the game in mind. Here is a preview video of the map:
Your starting point is literally right above where the princess in being held, and you are told to save her by traversing the Cobalt, Mythril, and Adamantite dungeons. That is about all the story you get, but again, this is not a story map, it is all about platforming, and some pretty good platforming if I say so myself.
The map is difficult, especially if you have absolutely no rhythm, like me. The parkour mostly comes in as blocks disappear and reappear on 3 second timers. It is a challenge, as you are jumping from a disappearing block and hoping you will land on a block that will reappear in time.
I asked Stackerzgame some questions and he kindly answered them:
ahamling27(AH): What inspired you to make the Mechanics Adventure Map?
Stackerzgame(SG): The new mechanical features of 1.1 were just too awesome and no one else had made a map yet. Also I wanted to get to know them better so I could make other cool stuff.
One of the many amazing submissions for the Terraria Online Holiday Contestwas a light show from YouTuber TerrariDav (TerraDav on the forums). We've gotten so many requests to feature this on its own since its release, so here it is!
What makes this video even more magical is the behind-the-scenes video TerrariDav put together to show everyone the wiry madness lurking beneath the beauty!
