Here at GameSkinny, we are all about Minecraft seeds for lazy people, but's time to recognize that that some Minecraft players are looking for challenges that can't be found in lush environments.

So, for all of you over-achieving people who need to add some challenge to your Minecraft play, here are some great survival island seeds just for you.

Seed: Sprite

The Sprite seed has long been the basis behind the "Survival Island" seeds. You land on an island with only a sparse grouping of trees, and you must learn survive for as long as you can on this island. Resources are few and far between, and there is no land for miles. As if you had enough wood to build a boat anyway.

This island appears on the surface to be your typical, run of the mill isolated spit of land until you discover the underwater stronghold right next to it. There are also two ocean monuments nearby, but you should discover those on your own time. Overall just your typical survival islands, with a few more things to do if you get tired of trying to live.

This gorgeous island comes with its fair share of trees. There may be plenty of trees for crafting and food, but the forest is infested with wolves. Without meat to tame them, they could become a problem for your foreseeable future. Ther might be a mainland not too far away from the island, but you'll have a hard time getting that far.

Just because you're on an island, doesn't mean that you shouldn't have nice things. This survival island seed comes complete with diamonds! Underneath one of these normal looking islands is a fissure with 11 diamond blocks just waiting for you to excavate. You'll be living like a king...in exile!

This biome gives you three whole islands, and you'll need to move between all three in order to survive. The first island has a single tree and a bit of sugar cane. The islands grow in size, as do the meager resources they offer. Good luck surviving this one.

While you won't be spawned on this beautiful mushroom biome island, you will be able to see it from the standard island you spawn on. Mushroom biomes have to be one of the weirdest features of Minecraft. At the very least, it gives you some different food options if you tire of apples.

This seed only offers two trees (and not very many dirt patches), but it makes up for it with the big crater in the center. The crater will give you some access to iron and coal if that makes anything better. It makes me want to try and dig a hole to the center of the earth.
