Trine: Enchanted Edition - Part 2

Continuing Trine, our heroes travel from the Astral Academy and through the underground to the Throne of the Lost King.


After learning about three different artifacts, one of which is the Trine, the artifact of the soul, the heroes travel through the Dragon Graveyard. In this level, the platforming starts to ramp up in that multiple levels of platforms need to be negotiated to proceeded along with more skeleton snipers waiting to pick you off if you cross their path. More of the pits have spikes which forces the heroes to maintain their height above ground so that they don't get impaled. The Wizard also gains a new ability to conjure planks that can be used by the heroes to cross simple gaps between platforms or ramps up to secrets.

The next level, the Crystal Caverns uses falling rocks and broken bridges to knock the heroes down a bottomless pit to their doom. As the name implies, the Crystal Caverns are covered with sharp crystals that damage the player if they were to land in the crystal thickets. This stage also introduces large bodies of water that the player swims down into to find treasure and new paths forward.

Finally, we infiltrate the Crypt of the Damned. In this level, we encounter acid pits that damage the hero if they were to step into them (these replace spike pits for the most part in this level). We also gain fire arrows for the Thief. These new arrows allow the Thief to break fragile platforms or shelves that hid secrets. They also allow the Thief to light torches to illuminate the path ahead.

The Crypt of the Damned ends by having the player fight a new miniboss that runs at you and tries to punch you to death. The only way to defeat the monster is to hit the large growing crystal that rises from it's back.

Welcome to Every Game Played Blog

Hello and welcome to Every Game Played Blog. This blog will be your portal into my journey into gaming.

From Magic: The Gathering to Street Fighter, Final Fantasy to Call of Duty, I will strive to give you my perspective on each of the games I play and help us discover the wide wonderful world of our shared hobby.

I want to experience a variety of different types of games, from Platformers to Role-Playing Games, First Person Shooters to Puzzle games. I want to clear my backlog of all the games I own and bring my thoughts to you so that you can take what you see and decide whether to play the games yourself.

I intend to do a combination of streaming on my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/UnfortunateWill) and uploading videos of my playthroughs so that streaming videos you can see my thoughts as they occur and the uploaded videos can be edited to maximize your enjoyment.

After each game I play, I intend to write a review for you that tells you my feelings around the game and gi…

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 grows wings …

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Part 1

Hello Everyone!

I'm starting my second playthrough with another one of my favorites, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. When I was a kid, we had a Super Nintendo and would borrow games from our neighbors and this was a favorite of both my sister and myself.

We are aiming to get all 75 Kremcoins and 40 DK coins in this run giving us a 102% completion percentage.

Each level will have all Bonus Areas completed and DK Coins collected before moving to the next level. This will ensure that we get all collectibles and enter the Lost World in one go.

I hope you enjoy the playthrough and please let me know in the comments either here or on YouTube.

Part 2

Gangplank Galleon is a great introduction that uses the full pirate ship theme in each of the levels. Using the ship's deck, the ship's sails and masts and the ship's bowels in each of the different levels really give a great variety and thematically gives each level type a unique identity. For Example, the ship'…
