ABOUT SHADWEN

Shadwen is a stealth-action game where the only rule is to remain unseen. Stay hidden – or the ruthless guards will kill you on sight!

Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with an orphaned girl, Lily. She follows Shadwen on her dangerous journey, but when the ruthless guards get too close, Shadwen must take action right in front of Lily’s eyes.

Will Shadwen risk the girl’s budding trust by resorting to violence, or try and find another way while keeping her real purpose concealed?

To kill or not to kill – that is the question.



FEATURES
  • MOVE FREELY – Sneak and explore around the dark and gritty medieval province and use the environment to your advantage – use your rope to grapple onto rooftops, silently drop down from ceilings, or veil yourself in the shadows.
  • STAY HIDDEN – Pick your assassinations carefully. Avoid being seen, heard or getting caught indirectly. Suspicious sights and noises will alert the guards – use it to your benefit!
  • TIME IS AN ACCOMPLICE – Time stands still when you are not moving Shadwen, allowing you to stop at any point mid-motion. Rewind time to manipulate your past and present actions!
  • USE PHYSICS – Use physics and a freely attachable rope to drag and topple objects. Make deaths look accidental; let gravity do the grave work.
  • CREATE TRAPS AND HAZARDS – Set up traps and hazards to lure guards towards their untimely demise; discover new ways to eliminate or distract your foes by crafting items into deadly surprises, including poison traps, spike devices, decoy toys and more.
  • TWO CHARACTERS – Embrace the darkness with Shadwen and her abilities to protect Lily and create a safe passage for her.

Great game, beautiful graphics, just amazing. Recommended for sure. I never downloaded Trine 1 or 3, but the nice thing about this game is you don't need to have played the previous games to know what's going on. I got this on a sale, for only $2.99, but I would still pay full price for it. Kinda boring on singleplayer, It's more fun to play it on multiplayer when you cooperate with people.

Graphics are just amazing in this game, the gameplay is fun and some parts are tricky. It's a little trickier if you're playing it solo which is what I did. I finished the game in maybe 8-10 hours playing it solo and i guess if you're playing it with 2 of your friends it would take less than 5-6 hours to finish so it's not really a long game but I enjoyed it even tho I played it all the way through solo.

After the release of Trine 3 which is considered a mixed bag it is high time I reviewed the sequel which is better in every which way than its predecessor.

The premise remains the same in the 2nd episode of Frozenbyte's amazing franchise: the mysterious object called Trine binds 3 heroes together who all have different abilities and gameplay style. In terms of story they have switched from skeletons to goblins. Not much of a change but you know it's all about saving the kingdom once more. We have the same 3 characters from the first episode and in terms of timeline we are a couple of years after the events of Trine 1.

What shines in Trine 2 is its graphics. Not that the first one was ugly, quite the contrary! Still, they managed to make the game even more beautiful (the water effect is stunning). In fact, the first game was updated with the sequel's engine and it is now only available in Enhanced Edition version.

Overall, the gameplay remains the same but they have tweaked it a bit here and there. For instance, the wizard cannot conjure floating triangles but can pick up monsters. The heroes all received some new abilities and each now seems to be more useful. And, of course, we have some puzzles that utilise physics and have to be solved accordingly.

The longevity of the game has also increased. Levels are more complex and much bigger. There are tons of collectibles to find - poems in treasure chests and also paintings (no equipment, though). You'll probably not be able to collect them all in one go! And let us not forget about the achievements - there's now a threefold increase.

I believe Trine 2 is an example as to how a sequel should be done. For fans of the first one it is a must and for those hating the 3rd (and preferably last) a revisit has been due for some time. The game also features proper multiplayer i.e. it is not LAN anymore.

I reached what felt like the end of the game and then the game went, "Nah, just kidding," and gave me another 9 hours of gameplay. Awesome...

This is quite possibly the prettiest 2D game (well, 2.5 D) I've ever played and probably the most fun one too. The gameplay from the first game has been expanded upon with new mechanics. Great for all ages.

I guess, if I had to critique, I would say the story could have been better (rather than just serving to get you from one puzzel to the next). Also, I am not sure how much fun this game is if you are playing it alone, since it was designed for co-op. Also, an xbox controller is recommended.

Trine 2 is a sidescrolling game that includes jumping, puzzle solving and fighting, all in a pleasant and well measured mixture.

Game looks nice, style is childishly charming and fanciful, in line with it's fairytale theme.

Player takes control of one of the three characters - a knight, a thief and a wizard - and freely changes between them during the adventure, using various abilities available to each one and combining them to overcome obstacles, be they botomless pitfalls, weird contraptions or enemies.

Gameplay is smooth and fun, game is fairly easy and causes little to no frustration but there's still a hefty dose of satisfaction when you manage to reach some hard to notice collectible crammed in a niche in the ceiling or a hidden chest after using up a trick or two. Levels are fairly diverse, from bread and butter enchanted forests or dungeons, to walled towns under assault to really cool and weird stuff such as being inside a sand worm's digestion system.

I unfortunately haven't tried multiplayer as of yet.

I haven't played anything of this sort since childhood times of Prehistorik and Prince of Persia in the early 1990ies, so I don't have much modern first hand experience for comparison. However Trine 2 (as well as Trine) left me very pleasantly surprised after I got it due to a random urge to buy something on a discount. Being used to "serious" games such as aviation simulators, rpgs, Total War series, raiding mmos, Eve online etc in the recent decade(s) I remembered how it felt to play games when I was a kid and I must say the change of pace is welcome.

All in all, I can recommend Trine 2. I imagine children would love it, while some of us older warhorses used to dark fantasy, dark science fiction, serious modern warfare etc can find a welcome break in this little gem.

Trine 2 is less of a sequel, and more radical cosmetic surgery. Frozenbyte have exploded the formula into a beautiful, rainbow-sodden spectacle. You don't realise how few purple and green crystal-lit caverns there are out there, until you're forced to stop and bask in one.

Trine is a fairytale platforming adventure, based around a magical floating sconce that's bound together the souls of a wizard, a knight and a thief. The story itself is sweet enough – perfectly charming and a shade too earnest – but what really drives you, beyond the irresistible instinct in platformers to travel to the right, is the satisfaction that's gained from solving the inventive physics-based puzzles.

Playing solo, you can swap between characters instantly as you require their different skills. The Wizard can levitate objects, conjure boxes, and eventually planks, allowing him to bridge gaps and create steps. But he's all wizardy and crap in a fight, so tap him out when goblins and bosses appear.

The Thief can fire a grappling hook and swing from wooden surfaces, and her bow makes her the best ranged fighter. Then there's the Warrior, who dishes out the melee damage with his sword, deflects lava with his shield, and smashes delicate stuff from afar with his hammer.

If you've played the first game, you'll be thinking “well, this sounds pretty familiar. Shouldn't you be focusing on the new stuff?” The weakest thing about Trine 2 is how broadly identical it is to the first game. The energy bar has gone, and there's online co-op play, but Trine 2 amounts to a skill reset and a bunch of gorgeous new levels.

The flexibility of the puzzles and the overlapping powers mean that often there's no pure, one-way solution. In particular, the Thief's agility becomes less essential as the Wizard learns to conjure more simultaneous objects. Solo, this doesn't matter. Multiplayer changes the nature of the game.

First off, and this is such a superficial observation that I feel obliged to say it in a stupid way, it's nice to do a solve on a puzzle with a friend. The first Trine had local multiplayer, bizarrely hidden in a sub-sub-menu, but Trine 2 brings it to the main menu, and adds online matchmaking and text chat. It's now easy to drop into a game with strangers or pals.

More fundamentally, dividing the powers between three players, instead of one player swapping between the powers as he sees fit, means that progress that could only previously be made by one character now has to be achievable by all three. Frozenbyte have addressed this in two ways. Firstly, the Wizard can levitate items that he's standing on in multiplayer. But life's too easy with a magic carpet.

A more elegant solution is Unlimited mode. Tucked away in the 'host a game' options, this allows multiples of each class on screen. It's more chaotic, more flexible, and more fun. It solves some huffier moments, like when the Thief realises she's a complete spare wheel. And that moment where the Wizard decides to avoid a boss fight, hanging out by the partner-regenerating checkpoints while an endless stream of Thieves and Knights do the work.

Trine 2 may retread a lot of old ground, but it's beautiful. It's like Frozenbyte are saying “Oh, did we make Trine? We meant this.” The same moderate puzzling challenge, the same characters, the same charm and some problems fixed.

Beautiful graphics and nice soundtrack... fun puzzles.
Runs smoothly... no crashes for me in single player (note that I did not try multiplayer!)
Not much more to be said really.
I got it for around 3 USD... And that's definitely worth it. Get it while you can!
So
-----------------
+ graphics
+ soundtrack
+ fun puzzles
+ stable singleplayer

° Story is not that complex... but some people care about that and some don't

- rather short campaign (depends on wether you want to collect all the stuff [experience, poems, paintings] or not)
- Puzzles are sometimes too easy- even in hard mode (difficulty however...... doesn't affect the puzzles but the strength of the enemy mobs).

When I played Trine 1, I was in love with that game. Moving on to Trine 2, I feel I am sickly obsessed with this game. It made improvements in almost every imaginable way to an already perfect game. Characters have more diverse and interesting skills, there're a lot more secrets to uncover and the levels are ever more expansive and intriguing. And combat in general is a lot better because each character has more ways to deal with enemies.

What I love Trine 2 the most is how each level feels very different from another, you have jungles, caves, deserts, snowy mountains, beaches, etc, essentially any imaginable environment you want to visit exists in this game, that great diversity combined with the game's amazingly charming visual shall guarantee one of the most pleasant experiences ever!

This is another begrudging approval. Trine 2 is not a bad game, but it's also not awesome. Most of it is, well, boring. Admittedly, that boringness is nicely polished.

The first Trine had a neat gimmick in the ability to instantly switch between the three character classes, and the fact that you sometimes had to use this to solve puzzles. The problem is that Trine 2 doesn't really build on this in any meaningful way. It's just more of the same. Add to that the fact that the story is even less relevant to our characters this time around (they don't even know the people who the story revolves around) and it's hard to care about anything that happens.

The combat requires no thought and you can generally brute force your way through without any problems. Even the boss fights can be bulldozed through with simple repetition. And once you put enough upgrades into the wizard the same can be said for the puzzles. That means that the early game and first few levels are significantly more challenging because you won't have those abilities yet. But put in a little time and thought and the game becomes a breeze.

It looks very nice - they definitely upped the graphical fidelity this time around. It comes at a cost though. The first Trine ran just fine on my standard work laptop, while Trine 2 gets about one frame a second.

There also seems to be less banter and fewer jokes between the characters this time around. It's still there a little bit, but it's disappointing there's not more because that was largely what made the first game so charming.

If you absolutely loved the first Trine then it's probably worth a quick playthrough of the second. But while there are some nice cosmetics and a few hours of diverting gameplay, the series seems to have misplaced its soul.
