New on Realms: Wizard Wars and Super High Scores!
Five community-created maps are now ready for Java Realms players!
Every few weeks, we update the huge library of Java Realms content available for you to play. Whether you're a fan of multiplayer combat or just want to have long adventures on your own, we've got you covered.
This week, we’ve got two PvP games, one adventure, an open experience level, and a fun game based around clicking on delicious cookies.
Read on, brave adventurer!
HeroFair Amusement Park
by CommandRedstone, Krissix, and lefserull
I’ve always found amusement parks to be magical places. Everything in the park is carefully tuned to excite you, delight you, and of course take all of your money. HeroFair won’t actually cost you anything, though! In fact you’ll earn the park’s currency just by visiting and playing with some of the park’s attractions. Earn enough and you can turn that money into some sweet swag, like a self-balancing scooter, or a remote-controlled wither drone! Just like in the real world, going to the fair is best with a bunch of friends or family, so invite the whole neighborhood, and see what rambunctious fun you can get up to!

The gnomes have a problem, and they want you to fix it. Apparently, there’s this guy Ronald, and he’s a super bad dude. He’s been making the gnomes do his bidding and eating way too much cake - which has mysteriously given him giant strength, size, and the ability to bop you in the face from long distances.

Mirage Wars is a team-based combat game in the sky. Each team gets their own goal entity to place in their home space. As long as it’s still around, you can respawn freely after a death. But should the other team destroy your entity, your next defeat is your last! Discover where each store of resources lie in the map, and collect enough of them to trade for new weapons and items. Taking control of an area and its resources becomes especially important once the other team is decked out in diamond armor and elytra!
Fun fact: while eating too many cookies will cause a sharp spike in caloric intake, clicking on cookies instead burns calories. It’s true! We’re not allowed to make any specific weight loss or fitness claims regarding this map (we checked), but we can confidently say that Cookie Crumble is a fun experience, combining our love of Minecraft and baked goods. Throughout the game, you’ll need to find ways to increase your output of cookies through stranger and more elaborate means. Purchase a cookie farm and a golden clicker, and suddenly you’re the coolest cookie aficionado around. Oh, and sometimes aliens try to steal your cookies. Just like in real life.
War of Wizards
by RedstoneJunkies Team (GameJunkieFreddy, GameJunkieTobi, and GameJunkiePat)
For all those times you've wanted to break out your wizard's robes and enter into magical combat. It may not be quite the same as casting a fireball into a traffic jam, or evoking a spell of silence upon your noisy neighbour in REAL life, but it's a close digital approximation. Each team gets a number of magical items and abilities, and it’s up to you to determine when it’s best to use them. Navigate around the arenas like some kind of sorcerous strike team, and cooperate to defeat each of your opponents. Shazam!
Updates About Updates
Not only do we have five new maps this week, we’ve also published updates to Entrapment, Monster Kids, and Color Drop. You might have to scroll down a bit into the content library to find these games, but their bug fixes, compatibility updates, and all-new abilities are worth digging into.
Also, our next release will have a bit more of a spooky autumn feel to it. Several new maps await you, so be sure to check back with us on a future Friday!
