Hollow is a Minecraft parkour map that’s quite darker and significantly grimmer than what we usually see from this particular category of maps. This isn’t necessarily the map that you’d want to go with if you’re starting off in parkour maps as it’s quite different from traditional maps and has various unique mechanics that you probably aren’t accustomed to but, on the other hand, if you’re a seasoned veteran and want to try your hand at something fresh then this map is sure to deliver because it has various new things that don’t exist in traditional maps and, on top of this, the dark setting makes for a rather immersive experience.
One important thing to keep in mind about the Hollow map is the fact that, alongside the usual parkour sequence, it also requires players to perform tasks like solving puzzles and finding various things as they progress further and further. Due to the additional gameplay elements, the map can become rather challenging at times but, as long as you stick with it, you’re bound to get through eventually. The gameplay actually feels quite refreshing due to the extra elements so, if you feel that traditional parkour maps are repetitive, this map is sure to impress because it constantly keeps giving players something new and interesting to do. The parkour sequences themselves are quite hard as well so, as mentioned earlier, you’ll probably struggle quite a bit if you aren’t adept at parkour maps and choose to try this one out.
The Hollow map has been designed specifically for Minecraft 1.12.2 and won’t function on prior versions of the game because it utilizes a variety of different blocks that were introduced in the new version of the game so, if you haven’t already, you’ll need to update to version 1.12.2 of the game in order to enjoy this map.
