Defense of the Pickaxe: New Minecraft map mimics DOTA

Nearly six months after the release of version 1.0, the creativity of the Minecraft community has not died down one bit. We have seen inter-spatial puzzle solving, Spartans taking on Zombies and even explored the land of Hyrule. Minecraft: DOTA brings the action-heavy, strategy gameplay of that classic mod to the cubic dimensions of Minecraft.

After watching that trailer, you can tell that Zealok and his team have put in a lot of time and effort into this map. Even going so far as to add in an economy system, shops to get better gear and the ability to buy adorably blocky wolves. The developers are still working on squashing the few bugs that are popping up; the worst of the bunch crashing your game if players attempt to break any block.

If you're looking for a bit of a change up from your normal Minecraft game, and aren't averse to installing any mods, then check out Minecraft: DOTA.
