Winner, Best Downloadable Game by GameSpot's E3 Editors' Choice Awards

"Apart from the beautiful graphics, what made the game stand out was just how spot-on everything was--whether it was the controls, the interactions between the three characters, or the puzzle-solving mechanics, it's clear the developers spent a lot of time refining the gameplay." full review

About This Game

Trine is a fantasy action game where the player can create and use physics-based objects to beat hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. Set in a world of great castles and strange machinery, three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil.

The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics - each character's different abilities help the player battle an army of undead and defeat hazardous contraptions. The player can at any time freely choose whoever is best suited for the upcoming challenge or puzzle: The Wizard is able to summon objects to help solve puzzles and create new ways to overcome obstacles, the Thief uses her agility and dead-on accuracy to swiftly surprise the monsters, and the Knight unleashes mayhem and physical destruction wherever he goes.

Trine Enchanted Edition


Trine Enchanted Edition is a remake of the original Trine with dazzling new visual effects and numerous gameplay improvements!

  • Online and local co-op with up to three players
  • Mid-level saving: Save anywhere to play as long or short sessions as you like

A beautiful and well animated puzzle game set like a fairly tale. You play a Wizard, Warrior and Thief utilising their various skills to solve puzzles and some combat. The Enchanted edition improves the graphics and adds online co-op.

Trine is a charming puzzle platformer with some light action elements. The artwork is gorgeous, the soundtrack is great and the gameplay is fun. The Enchanted Edition is a port of the original game to the Trine 2 engine and the improved graphics still hold up surprisingly well.

The game is rather reminiscent of Lost Vikings and puts you in control of three different characters with different abilities. Unlike in Lost Vikings, most of the puzzles in Trine are physics based. Unfortunately they all tend to be on the easy side. Especially late in the game you are given so many tools that pretty much any puzzle becomes trivial.

The combat is rather casual too, and overall I found the game quite easy even on hard difficulty. The last two levels are significantly more challenging, though. At least you can switch difficulty on the fly, so this shouldn't be a major issue.

Despite these minor faults Trine is a highly enjoyable game that's recommended to anyone who likes platformers.

The good:
- Beautiful art that still holds up quite well
- Fun Lost Vikings inspired gameplay
- Interesting fairytale story
- Great soundtrack

The bad:
- Big difficulty bump for the last two missions. The game is really easy even on hard before those two

This is a brilliant game. The graphics are exeptional and the objects work exactly as they should with high quality inertia. The characters have different skills and uses depending on where they are needed and the puzzles are very interesting to solve. I found no bugs or problems with the gameplay and it's in depth enough to make it playable after completing it as it will be hard to remember everything. Top class.

Nice and very beautiful game. Controls are excellent and gaming is versatile.
Single negative thing in this game is too hard last mission, but it become easier when you lower difficulty to easy.

Finns can make awesome games too! <3

REVIEW :
Beautiful graphics and music, interesting narration story, fun casual gameplay. The only downside is the last level, really annoying and anti-climax compared with the previous levels. Overall a good casual side-scrolling platforming game.

CONCLUSION :
Recommended on sale price.

Trine is a side-scrolling action platform/puzzle game developed by Frozenbyte, originally released in 2009. A remake of Trine called Trine: Enchanted Edition was released. It ports the game to the Trine 2 engine and adds online multiplayer.
The gameplay consists of controlling and switches between three different characters (a wizard, a thief, and a knight) to try to complete levels filled with enemies, lots of great puzzles and many secret treasures. There is also a experience system that is shared among all characters, and is incremented by acquiring bottles found throughout levels. Every 50 experience points, each character is given one point towards the purchase of upgrades to their abilities.
After so many years this is still one of the best local/online co-op experiences I've seen. Due to the enhanced edition upgrade, the game still looks good (#1, #2) and sounds amazing, just listen to the soundtrack.

This game is great for playing with friends online or locally, it's puzzles are simple enough to not get frustrated yet hard enough to provide a challenge. The characters all have different way to approach each obsticle and each can do it alone.
Although the game seems a tad bit overpriced as me and my friend completed the game in 5 hours.
If it is on sale you should definitely buy this.
8/10 for 5 hours of gameplay

Not really into platformers all that much but this game is really good like even today even though its old and the first one.

Game runs surprisingly well even on a gtx480 and looks great at 1080p. Sure i don't use anti-aliasing but i dont like it when the scenes in motion and causes the blurry ness but yet im still getting 60+fps most of the time if not all the time

You play as 3 dudes, one is an archer who uses bow and has grapple, one is a swords man who has shield, one is a wizard who can conjour boxes. Using these 3 people properly will help you advance through the game. The challenges aren't all that difficult but they are difficult enough to make it challenging and rewarding. If in doubt most of the times your going right on the screen. Sometimes you'll back track to go down a hole then go right or you'll climb up etc. But the challenges with the way its designed is nicely done.

Yes i recommend, i also recommend trine 2. They are the best ones, Trine 3 is good but there isn't enough in the game imo. These two are the real gems.

It looks gorgeous too even by todays standard.

It also has multiplayer and co-op is a blast. You can even use tunngle to run through there which is usually where your most likely to find another player considering nobody really plays it anymore.
