Hollow Knight Review
Hollow Knight is a classically styled 2D action adventure across a vast interconnected world. To put things simply, you are a warrior in an insect world. You journey underground to fight creatures, find treasure, and to discover the mysteries about the world you live in. The combat and platforming is fast, fluid, and feels great. Defeating enemies, and finding cocoons awards you with currency to purchase items from vendors, such as maps and charms. Plenty of upgrades to buy or find, and new skills to unlock. This game is definitely for those people who enjoy a good challenge, love exploration, and don’t mind running into dead ends regularly until they unlock the skills they need to progress. If you like classic gameplay, cute but creepy characters, epic adventure and beautiful, gothic worlds, then Hollow Knight awaits!
