    As a free download, Haunted Hollow will give you many hours of enjoyment. It's beautifully designed, well-balanced, and has a lot of charm.

    Haunted Hollow is an uncomplicated, charming, and fun strategy game that's particularly potent with pals.

    Haunted Hollow is a very decent strategic game with a healthy free-to-play model. You literally don't have to spend a dime to keep it fun, which gives the game all the time and space it needs to prove itself. And when you find yourself ready to sink a few Euros into it, it'll have a diverse line-up of monsters at the ready.

    Haunted Hollow has so much going for it that it pains me to say that it could be even better. It’s a five-star concept that ends up something less in execution because of poor design choices, but that shouldn’t scare you off from giving it a free download and seeing if it matches your idea of a ghoulish good time.

    A cleverly original strategy game that won’t be challenging the genre’s greats but does offer fun multiplayer at a reasonable price.

    Haunted Hollow’s biggest fault is that you have no incentive to keep playing; the asynchronous multiplayer works well, but all you earn for successful Haunted Hollowing are Game Center achievements. No new worthwhile content is unlockable without spending money.

    On paper it seems like a solid tactical game, however after a few matches it all starts to feel the same.

    An absolutely abhorrent example of how to monetize a decent game. You only have access to a single level and everything else requires at least a five dollar investment before even another level is accessible. I'll never touch this game again. Expand
