    Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a masterclass in 2D puzzle platforming. From its beautifully fantastical world to its mind-bending scenarios, you're bound to love every minute of this lighthearted adventure.

    Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is the long-awaited return of Zoya, Amadeus and Pontius. Puzzles, combats, platforms, magic stages in 2.5D and multiplayer mode will keep newcomers and veterans glued to the controller from beginning to end. Frozenbyte proves again their ability to create a new medieval fantasy adventure and we don’t want to see “The End”.

    Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a sequel that plays it very safe – which, in this particular case, is for the better. Coming back to the traditional style of co-op gameplay and puzzle solving that made the first two games so delightful is exactly the kind of refocusing that the Trine series needed after the misfire of Trine 3. Some lackluster puzzle designs, technical issues, and a lack of difficulty stand in the way of it overtaking Trine 2 as the best of the series, but Trine 4 still remains a shining example of how cooperative gaming should be, and is one of the most gorgeous looking 2.5D games of 2019.

    Trine 4 brings back the good, old magic of the first two chapters andadds to the potion some minor but highly effective new gameplay mechanics.

    In returning to form with this sequel, Frozenbyte has doubled down on what made the franchise great prior to the mishap that was the third entry.

    A good return that fulfills what it promises, although it lacks some more strength in history and some difficulty that makes it more striking for a single player.

    Why change a winning team? Well, for starters: to avoid the feeling of a franchise playing it safe and resting on its laurels. In fact, Trine 4 often feels more like an expansion than a new game, which is never a good thing. Granted, co-op is a lot of fun, though even here you'll need to overlook the game's repetitive nature.

    This game reverses all the previous mistakes in trine 3 and doubles down on all the mechanics that made the first 2 games fantastic. Every setThis game reverses all the previous mistakes in trine 3 and doubles down on all the mechanics that made the first 2 games fantastic. Every set of stages adds new abilities and puzzles to tackle. The graphics are very impressive and the coop gets an entirely separate set of puzzles than single player. All in all this has become my favorite game of the series. Expand

The unique puzzles are set in beautiful locales, and the characters are really fun to use. What ultimately holds it back is the feeling that the team at Frozenbyte played it safe after Trine 3. Due to long levels and slow progression, it can at times feel as though the game drags. While I wish there had more to the game, you can do much worse than to pick up Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.
