If you, like us, managed to miss out on The Mystery of Haunted Hollow when it first released back in 2014, you not only have a second chance to get caught up but a good incentive to do so, as the sequel has just been released for iOS and Android platforms.
The original game dropped players into the town of Hollow with only vague memories of the past, determined to uncover any buried secrets and find your missing family while ignoring the warnings of a ghost. The Mystery of Haunted Hollow 2 picks up where its predecessor left off, with you arriving in the dreary village of Nightfall. The weather is ominous, the town "drenched in rain [as] thunder and lightning clap in the distance, making you feel more cautious as you trek down the long path." But you have no choice but to proceed if you are to finally discover the truth, beginning an investigation full of apparitions, "some of whom are friendly, others who have more sinister plans in mind."
Like its predecessor, The Mystery of Haunted Hollow 2 is a first-person slideshow-style adventure with photorealistic graphics. This time around, accompaned by all-new weather effects, you'll be exploring such eerie locations as a "haunted shack, an old barn, the massive secret library, a new chapel, a thrilling and dark asylum, an abandoned hotel, and the Old Manor, which has a surprise waiting in store." Along the way you'll need to scour carefully for clues and journey entries that will help piece together your lost memories, all the while solving any puzzles and riddles that stand in your way.
The Mystery of Haunted Hollow 2 represents the second and final installment in the series, and can be downloaded from the App Store for iOS devices or Google Play and Amazon for Android. The first game is available at all three retailers as well, including a complete free version for iOS for a very limited time. Both games have free "lite" demo versions available if you'd like to try before you buy.
