Trine is a platformer that screams of uniqueness and art-style. Frozen Byte’s puzzle/platformer combo is by far one of the best games I’ve played recently in the action/adventure/puzzle/platformer hybrid/mix/#lotsofslashes genre. With a wizened narrator telling you this fantastic tale of three (two reluctant and one super-excited) heroes out on a journey to save the kingdom from the undead scourge. Sounds simple enough? Well, you can switch between Wizard, Thief or Knight by pressing 1, 2 or 3. What is the logic behind this? Well, their souls are bound so they share the same body, but different souls!
The game is also unique in the fact that it mashes up a fantasy setting with realistic physics. Throw crates and stones at your enemies with Knight, or swing from wood and shoot at the skeletons with Thief. Feeling creative? Well, Wizard has you covered as you can make crates and floating platforms with mouse gestures! There are many ways of solving puzzles and getting secret items in Trine and with four difficulty levels, the game can be played through many times!
The game on Steam is available for $5 75% off from its original price of $19.99. The update features the v1.07 patch that adds a new level called Path to New Dawn! Also, however much I show you pictures of the game, nothing will tell you just how gorgeous it really is. You can try out a demo here, or watch the video below.
Have fun playing it and tell us how you liked it in the comments!
