    Haunted Hollow has two mansions battling for complete control of the town below. Players send ghosts, vampires, mummies, zombies, werewolves, reapers and more into action to seize control of the town from the other mansion’s monsters.

    With Haunted Hollow, Firaxis have created a perfect Frankenstein, having transplanted a fun, strategic, digital board game into the body of a casual, cutesy freemium app. It is a not a perfect game and the lack of a really strong solo experience is a serious oversight.

    A surprising little game. It manages to rise above the status of a throwaway mictoransaction-begging App by providing a deep and compelling system at the core of the experience. With a few more tweaks, it would be worth spending more time with, but as it stands, depending on your ability to play with others it may be a more fleeting experience.

    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.

    With homebuilding, a rival monster summoner, and the justifiably angry villagers, Haunted Hollow offers the kind of multitasking stimulation that is worthy of the attention of real time strategy fans. Granted, the multiplayer is asynchronous, but that makes the game equally welcoming to newcomers of strategy games.

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

    An absolutely abhorrent example of how to monetize a decent game. You only have access to a single level and everything else requires at leastAn 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. Full Review »
