Trine 4 is a side scrolling adventure game with puzzles, magic, and a mythical sense of adventure from Modus Games.
The Trine series returns to the magic of 2.5D with Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince! The three heroes of the best-selling adventure series are back, sent on a quest to retrieve the troubled young Prince Selius.
Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief are joined together once again on a thrilling quest through fantastical fairytale landscapes teeming with danger.
About Trine 4
Amadeus the Wizard can levitate objects and enemies along with summoning large cubes and spheres. He stood out as my favorite because of his magical nature but didn’t come across as over powered.
Zoya the Thief can shoot enemies and grapple onto edges by attaching rope to her arrows. Her archer outfit looks great and it was fun to aim with her bow though her shooting speed is low.
And Pontius the Knight can charge through foes and block projectiles with his shield.
The developers let us know that each of these characters have different abilities that they can learn as the game progresses. Zoya can use Fairy Rope, Pontius can learn the Dream Shield ability to leave a phantom shield in the air, and many more useful skills for solving puzzles.
They are clearly designed in order for the player to rotate between all of them to complete a puzzle and it feels satisfying to find the right steps and order of how to use them.
Besides the story mode, you adventure with friends in Unlimited mode which lets you choose multiples of the same character for some chaotic fun.
The game is inspired by Finnish nature according to developers and supports both single and multiplayer.
This will also have 20 levels making it the longest Trine game so far.
Trine 4 releases on PC and all consoles September 30th.
