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.

Super Mario World Review

Super Mario World, released for the SNES in 1990 as a launch title and developed by Nintendo, is my second favorite game of all time. A follow up to the last main line Mario game Super Mario Bros. 3., Super Mario World (SMW) builds upon the game play of the previous titles by using familiar gimmicks such splitting the levels into separate worlds in which the player can choose which levels they play in which order, using many familiar power ups in the Mushroom and Fire Flower, and ending each world with a fight with one of Bowser's children. However, new additions allow the game provide a fresh experience for players of the previous games in the series. The biggest addition is the Mario game debut of Mario's dinosaur companion, Yoshi. Hatching a Yoshi egg allows Mario to ride the dinosaur and command Yoshi to eat enemies, fruit and gain new abilities when they eat the shells of the Koopa Troopas. The shells correspond to the powers of the colored Yoshi's: blue grow

Kirby's Dream Land Review

Kirby's Dream Land is a Nintendo Game Boy action-platformer developed by HAL Laboratories and published by Nintendo. Masahiro Sakurai designed this game to be an introduction to the genre that allows beginning players to ease into learning the basic mechanics while not stressing out over staying alive. In this game, the self proclaimed King Dedede has gone out and stole all of the foot in Dream Land. Kirby has to travel through four levels to get to King Dedede's palace and defeat him to return the food to the good citizens of Dream Land. In each level, the player must travel through several different scenes to reach an end boss that they must defeat before moving on to the next level. To combat the enemies that try to impede Kirby, Kirby can inhale and draw the enemy or other obstacle into his mouth. Then the player can decide to either swallow it or spit it out to damage other enemies or destroy blocks in the way. To help the player jump up to high platforms or recover
