Haunted Hollow Cheats And Tips
Get ghoulishly good with our game guide.
- The main objective of the game is to dominate the town entirely so that you have scared every last resident. To achieve this, you're going to need to maintain a delicate balance between bringing out ghoulish forces to see off your opponent, while scaring the living daylights out of the residents with your more frightening specters.
- When your turn comes around, you'll be given the opportunity to draw an additional room on your mansion for free. You can place more than one room during this stage, but be aware that it will cost a certain amount of Fear from your currency pool, limiting the movements of your monsters that are in play.
- Don't forget that you can change your loadout before the match itself commences. Experiment with the different house layouts in multiple games so that you can settle on one that matches your own playstyle. They're all pretty well balanced against each other, but each requires a different strategy on the playing field. You can also change the contents of the room, and exploring this system is a great way of learning the strengths and weaknesses of the monster characters.
- Different rooms have different sizes. Each one you create will start off as a Small room (one block wide, one block tall). You can increase the size of rooms, however. To create a Medium room, you can place two Small rooms adjacent to each other (above, below, or to the sides). Merging those Medium rooms into Large rooms is trickier, and requires a bit of planning in advance.
- Why would you want to have bigger rooms? Well, the main reason is that you can create more powerful monsters by expanding these core, smaller units. Small rooms can only produce Level 1 monsters, but increasing the size of the room increases the level of the monster it produces. Plan carefully, as each player can only have sixteen monsters in play at any one time.
- There are three different types of monsters in the game, and each one has its own specialties that can turn the tide of battle. Fighty monsters are useful for getting rid of an opponent's ghouls, and also protecting your own units. Special monsters provide support for the other creatures you have in play, while Scary monsters are important for frightening citizens and winning you the game.
- If it looks like your opponent is making a play for one of your Scary monsters, make sure there's a Fighty monster nearby to protect it. You might lose your Fighty monster in the process, but the objective is to scare all of the residents, so keeping your Scary creatures alive is a key priority in the game.
- As you level up, you'll gain access to special items which might increase the health of one of your creatures, for example. Choose very carefully here, as once you've used up an item, it vanishes until the next game. Leveling up is also important for gaining Fear points, which allow you to conduct more activities in a single turn.
- Focus on controlling entire neighborhood clusters. If you do so, you'll receive an extra Fear point at the start of every turn. Neighborhoods are made from clusters of two or more houses placed side by side, surrounded by a fence or wall.
