Trine is a beautiful fantasy action platformer with a fairytale-like atmosphere, following the journey of three heroes - a Wizard, a Knight and a Thief - in a quest to save the kingdom from evil. The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics - each character's different abilities and tactics can be used to invent new ways to battle an army of undead and overcome obstacles, and restore the balance of the world.
Got this during one of the Humble Bundle sales. I just got around to playing it last night. I really like the way that the mouse in integrated into the game. I like how you must actually "aim" your shield for protection, rather than just clicking the button and letting the game do the rest. Little details like this make me appreciate the game. The game is visually stunning and the soundtrack will keep you immersed.
Cant wait for part 2!
How to justify this 10/10 rating. First - just run any demo or trailer for this game. Then - add physics, level design, music, narration and amount of love put into this game and.. you have it.
(actually there is some 0.3 points less for some small physics bugs and gameplay annoyances, but still it easily rounds to 10) :]
Three very different antagonists with very different motivations keep the story of the game interesting. Gameplay is made interesting by the need to use the different characters different abilities to tackle the challenges you face along with plain good level design. The game could be called a puzzle platformer but it is more of a platform game than a puzzle game. There are optional challenges that require a bit of more puzzling to solve, though, and bring you rewards if you solve them.
The game also has RPG elements as you can level up your characters and give them new or improved abilities. Together these elements make for a fun game, that will appeal to many different kinds of gamers. Graphics, voice acting sound and music are all good and together create a suitable atmosphere.
I would recommend the game mainly to gamers who like platform games, but puzzle game enthusiasts and RPG gamers may also find that it is worth giving the game a try.
A brilliant game with amazing graphics and fun physics-based gameplay. Best for 3-player action, but still fun to play and figure out alone. Lots of secrets to boot, you'll always be going back to previous levels to find any lost Experience Bottles you didn't find in your previous run. Plus, dropping crates on the heads of your foes never gets old.
