Monster Compendium

  • Patrolling enemies are small, non-flying creatures that will pace the ground left and right. These can be killed with a dive attack, but dive cautiously, as they often come in pairs or groups.

  • Floating enemies are flying creatures with long, thin bodies and tentacles. They will not move to attack you, but instead hover up and down. These can also be killed with a dive attack.

  • Flying enemies have large, circular bodies and spike legs which they use to fly with like a helicopter. They will hover over you then drop down with their spike legs to impale you. Wait for a flying enemy to position itself over you, then quickly move right or left to avoid its drop. Dive attack to kill it while it is momentarily grounded.

  • Faller enemies are huge creatures with a round body with multiple tentacles at the bottom. Like flying enemies they will position themselves over you and drop down to crush you. They cannot be killed and once they fall they will remain stationairy. Wait for them to float above you, then quickly run away to avoid their attack.

  • Crusher Enemies are very similar to faller enemies except that they have a round head and a body and they can attack multiple times. Wait for them to fly over you, then quickly run out of the way before they smash down to the ground.

  • Devouring enemies have a square-shaped body and four stretching arms. They are stationary and will not move to attack you, but they cannot be killed and touching one means instant death. Avoid these wherever you see them.

  • Goo enemies are green jelly-like enemies that alternately lie flat on the ground then raise their bodies up into the air. Like devouring enemies, they can't be killed and must be avoided. Move over them while they are flat on the ground, but be sure not to touch them when their full body is raised. Run through them cautiously, as goo enemies often come in pairs.

  • Blob enemies are very small bouncing balls. Chase them down when they flee from you and kill them quickly, or they will start a rock avalanche.

As an Anime fan, the term "Hollow" holds a slightly different meaning for me...

Pretty fun game, although a little short. My only major qualm would be the avalanche mechanic, that just turned an otherwise fairly-easy platformer into a trawl-through-random-unavoidable-deaths.

The difficulty was a little sporadic too, but all within reasonable lengths, and the avalanching was all moderately reasonable until the last level, where it just became a bore.

Just finished...fun but challenging!

Addendum to the final level walkthrough by Trinn -

The player needs to learn a little about the nature of the creatures in the cave. The avalanche seems to be controlled by the little creature that drops from the ceiling. You frightened it by showing up, and it sends out little waves that trigger the avalanche. You can't kill it, however. But it is afraid of you.

When it falls, stand just a little to the left of it. It will jump away to the right and fall down the hole, and the avalanche will never start.

I died 227 times. I think about 100 of them were on that last level. Argh!

Also, who went through and polished that ice? Man that stuff is slippery.

Secret Shortcut

There's a secret shortcut in level 9

It has a Leprechaun in it!

After getting past the devouring monster, walk to the end of the tunnel, then move up and as far to the left as you can. You'll find a secret passage, got to the end and dive.

Carl,

The walkthrough actually does mention those creatures. You also see them before the last level, in Level 5. In the monster compendium, they're referred to as "blob" enemies with a brief strategy in the description. They can in fact be attacked (although this only seems to delay them, rather than actually destroy them) as is mentioned in the achievements section for the Avalanchier achievement, which requires you to kill a blob after it starts an avalanche.

Sorry that's

*after* it starts an avalanche for the achievement. Also, tried out that lvl 20 strategy and it worked! Very clever, Carl :) I had been avoiding the avalanche before by timing the jumps just right from the platform to the two patrolling enemies.

Is there a way to kill yourself if you get stuck?

Actually, I wanted to know how to start after getting to the level select screen.

Hmm. Running either chrome or firefox, all I get is the green loading bar. Any ideas?

Gordon, I had the same issue, and I was able to run it in IE; FF and Chrome both gave me your same result though.

I just gave it a try, and I didn't have any issues getting it to run--sometimes it'll sit on the bar for a moment, but that's just because it's initializing mochi and the splash screen.

@Gordon and @CrankYanker: Chrome on Mac had no issues for me (v. 13.0.782.220), nor did Chrome on Windows 7 (v. 13.0.782.220 m).

Also, make sure your Flash Player is updated to the latest version.

Oh, Trinn, you are spot on correct. I don't read instructions super well :)

Boring try and error game with it's horrible height in lvl 20. After 10000 deaths there is no fun or satisfaction in beating the game. Interesting idea with outdated gameplay and bad conversion. Put in some variation to finish the lvl. One way with one timing period that has to be perfect sucks. Just my opinion there are enough people who love meatboy too.

I thought it was a wonderful game.

Great pixel art. Interesting atmosphere. And I appreciated the difficulty. There were some levels where I died a lot, but I was never discouraged. Bit by bit I would progress, learning a new trick with each death.

Thank you for the experience. I'm eager to see more!

but I went the wrong way.

Ohhh.. ack! Yeah, Littleghost, I think resetting was your only option in that case :(

Ev,

Check the walkthrough for instructions on each jump over the pits. If you're stuck on the very large gap before the exit, try jumping to the right, then at the very top of your jump use dive. It should send you all the way to the wall and the exit door beside it :)

Seriously? Do you had even 1 tester to tell you how horribly designed was the avalanche mechanic in the last level? I mean, the other levels were fun, average difficulty, even easy for me, the last one it's.. it's not even funny, it doesn't depend in your skills at all, it's just you and your luck, that's all. If you are lucky enough to avoid getting wet when in the middle of a storm then you can probably get past the last level, if not then I'd recommend to look for another game.

Sweet jesus, I died 991 times!! xp The background kept disappearing sporadically, but it still worked fine. Btw, did anyone else notice that you could double dive left at the very top of lvl 20?
