Magic. Mystery. Maniacal Mayhem! Just a few words to describe the intense fun that awaits within the world of Trine for fans of the Indie Platformer Genre, which transformed from a graphically intense side scroller (both predecessors) and mutated into a magnificently submersive 3D puzzle platformer.
Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power demanded a hefty R75 Million budget from the developers Frozenbyte, which went solely into the new 3D mechanics and physics, which do not disappoint in any way other than leaving you wanting more when the game is over after 8 chapters, which if focused on, could be completed in one sitting. The title’s true strength lies within it’s Multiplayer modes. You can either challenge yourselves with Classic Mode, where you can only play with 1 character throughout the whole mission, or the creatively fun Unlimited Mode, where you can each one switch through and play with any of the three protagonists of the story… Three Mages conjuring cubes spells FUN with a capital TOO MUCH.
Whether you have never played Trine before or if you are a devoted fan of the franchise, you really should consider adding this (potentially) final installment to your collection to complete the epic Trine Trilogy. In the below two video’s we review Trine 3, Solo and Multiplayer and explore how easy it is to get lost in a world of random and spontaneous fun. After finishing off the Multiplayer review, we returned back to the game and played on for at least another hour and a half! Addictive much?
