Drake Hollow's overall gameplay and presentation make it a joy to experience, though the balancing for the endgame is in need of serious work.
Drake Hollow is great fun with faster paced gameplay than most survival games.
Drake Hollow puts a lovely spin on the survival genre. Building a camp to care for Drakes instead of yourself is a nice twist, and defending that camp from raids is a lot of fun. But fighting the same four enemy types with a simple combat system can’t carry the fun for the entire adventure.
With a story that didn’t grab me, repetitive gameplay, and some game-breaking bugs, Drake Hollow is really only left with its charm to lean on.
A charming and entertaining survival game, with some totally lovable tiny creatures and good and well-balanced mechanics that will please newcomers to the genre too.

Odd design choices and an unsatisfying yet incredibly demanding gameplay loop mar a game that boasts the cutest plant people in video games. A crafting and survival sim with added base-building, Drake Hollow is not compelling enough to justify the demands it makes on the player or the lack of reward even when you manage to do what it asks.
Drake Hollow is a fantastic game that makes you spend hours and hours in your hollow. The Molasses Flood have created one of the best games of 2020 so far.
