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
  • Stunning new graphics based on the Trine 2 engine

Both Trine Enchanted Edition as well as the original Trine are included in the Enchanted Edition. The different versions are selectable from the game launcher. All Trine purchases have been automatically updated to Trine Enchanted Edition.

Note: The original Trine is only included in the Windows and Mac versions.

Key Features

  • Solve challenges and puzzles in many different ways – combine the characters' abilities and let your mind come up with creative solutions never seen before
  • Online and local co-op with up to three players
  • Characters gain experience points that can be used to upgrade their abilities

I enjoyed the first game in the Trine series the most. Everything feels new and unique. The level design is still thief-heavy but the story and dialog is fun.

This is truly one of the best 2D platformers I have ever played! With fantastic visuals, nice storytelling, music that makes you feel that you are in your dream fantasy world and fantastic narrator. Recommended for anyone who enjoys the platforms, puzzles and medieval times.

Blah, blah, blah, that describes the story, the gameplay and the difficulty. Puzzles, if you want to call them that, to get experience, boil down to draw something out with the mage and then push it off the hard to reach ledge to the ground. Combat, get the warrior and just charge mashing the attack button. Platforming, why even do it when the mage can just walk across everything with even the fainest amount of intuition.

The auxilaries to what this type of game is about, meaning graphics and soundtrack, are good. Not good enough to save this abysmal experience. You can just pass by this for something that does this gameplay sytle properly.

Trine's a strange game. This is less of an action adventure and more of a Survival Platformer, with various (and nonsensical) powers that are combined in various ways to reach your goal intact.

I guess you should buy it, it's a fun little sandbox.
