Hollow Knight - convince me to keep playing


#121

Then go west past that monster


#122

I think I did that and it led back to the guy who gave me the new ability. Since then I’ve been roaming around everywhere. I probably missed something obvious to most people. I can go back there and look again.


#123

You will find other areas to the west and south of that boss you beat so just keep looking!


#124

Or if you just want to know where to go:

Summary

When you drop to the area from the village, go left. There’s a tall room (like five screens high). There are three exits to the left. Take the middle one.


#125

Thanks for the hints and answer. I don’t know how I missed it. I had been over there before. On a positive note I made good progress on the next level.


#126

Having some trouble with The Hornet, but at least my run back is close and she is pretty fun to fight.


#127

Wow, Dave Long is a cheater. Who knew.


#128

Arggg, I hate the bouncy mushrooms. I can’t find any rhyme or reason as to why I can sometimes bounce high and sometimes I can’t. I’ve tried all sorts of timing my jumps.

Otherwise, the game is getting better and better now that I have my dash and more charms and slots. Found the map to the fungal wastes. Also found Queen’s Station but I’m going to finish exploring the wastes.


#129

Push down when you attack them.


#130

Thanks. Sometimes I am so oblivious.


#131

Also note that those mushrooms aren’t the only thing you can bounce off of…


#132

Those two armored guys who roll critters at you while lobbing bombs are tough.


#133

Just worry about hitting the ones that roll at you and then use Vengeful Spirit.


#134

Thanks. I also didn’t put it together that I should stand next to one to keep him closed. Sometimes I overlook obvious things :-)


#135

I really like how when you use the heal ability, you really need to commit to it. It takes some time and you can’t cancel out of it immediately.

While I like this game more and more as I play, I think I prefer Ori and the Blind Forest.


#136

#137

Nonsense about preferring Ori and the Blind Forest or liking the heal mechanism?

Even though I prefer Ori I still like Hollow Knight.


#138

#139

Wow, you like this game more than Ori Chappers? That’s really high praise.

Hollow Knight has been announced for Xbox for a Spring 2019 release, that’s the release I’m waiting for.


#140

What didn’t you like about Ori, or did you like it and just love Hollow Knight?
