Trine: Enchanted Edition - Introduction and Part 1

Trine is a side-scrolling platforming game with light action that is developed by Frozenbyte Inc. in 2009 originally for PC. An updated version of the game, Trine: Enhanced Edition was released in 2014 and is the version that we're playing.

In this game, the player switches between three characters, a thief, a wizard, and a knight, to complete platforming puzzles and defeat monsters that stand in your way. The Thief uses a grappling hook to swing from objects to be able to cross large gaps and a bow to take care of long distance enemies. The Wizard can create boxes to activate switches or access higher ledges and he can use telekinesis to move boxes or planks so the player can climb up on them. Finally, the Knight uses his sword and shied to destroy enemies and bounce projectiles, such as fireballs, to destroy platforms that block his way.

Each of the characters becomes fused when they touch the Trine, an artifact that fuses their souls so that only one of them is present in the level at a time and they can switch places at any time. After becoming fuzed, they learn about the undead overrunning the kingdom. To solve the undead menace and to separate themselves from the artifact, the trio travels through the kingdom to collect three more artifacts and takes them to the source of horde.

Each level contains a number of enemies that drop and green bottles that grant experience. After fifty bottles or drops of experience you gain a skill point that can be added to one of the three characters to upgrade their skills. Also, each level contains a number of secrets that contain items that each character can equip to gain bonus effects such as more damage, more health or better item usage.

Trine - Part 3 to End

Honestly, It's kind a hard with a game that's much more about the platforming and gameplay to try to stretch out a blog post about it. The rest of the game is pretty straight-forward. A bunch of more platforming challenges with some added difficulty. A few new mechanics: Adding in dark areas where the Thief and Soldier have to light up a torch to see where the player can jump Lava that kills the player much more quickly than spikes or acid Balance puzzles where the player must take into account how much weight two sides of a scale have so that the player can proceed We do reach the final boss in this part and as you may guess, it's a platforming challenge in which the stage actively puts obstacles in your way that you must destroy before you can move on. When you get to the top of the tower you see a cut scene where you defeat the corrupted old king and reunited the artifacts to return balance to the world and vanquish the undead menace.
