”Hollow Knight” is a beautiful and atmospheric 2D side-scrolling action adventure game. It’s easily one of the best games to play while you wait for “Metroid Prime 4.”?The highly anticipated sequel, “Hollow Knight: Silksong,” is getting closer everyday as well, but there’s still plenty to do in the original.?
There’s so much to find while exploring the sprawling underground insect city known as Hallownest. Every new cavern seems to reveal new enemies to fight, NPCs to talk to, and items to find. It can actually be a little overwhelming. Sometimes you find a door and you just want to know what’s behind it, without having to search through every last nook and cranny for the key.
There are four locations in Hallownest that are barred by Simple Locks and can only be accessed with items known as Simple Keys. The locks are located at the entrance to Royal Waterways from the City of Tears, the cave past Dirtmouth (beyond the graveyard), the Pleasure House in the City of Tears, and the cocoon of the Godseeker in the Junk Pit. Here’s where to find them.
