Having the opportunity to play a game that hasn't gotten a lot of press is a chance to make known the truth about something most people may not have tried. It's kind of like when a new flavor of energy drink comes out. I mean you don't want...

PC on Steam and the PS3 on Play Station NetworkNo we are not talking about an angle of 120° (1/3 of the 360° ecliptic). A separation (orb) of 120±04° is considered a Trine as in the Astrological aspect.... Trine is a side scrolling...

It used to be mildly surprising when a game successfully melded multiple genres into a single experience, but nowadays it’s becoming increasingly common (mercifully). Trine is another such example of how fun it can be to have a bunch of play...

Trine follows the adventures of a trio of heroes bound together by the titular magical artifact. There’s some menacing evil engulfing the land, and maybe some all-powerful artifacts to recover. I really didn’t pay the plot much attention,...

When I heard FrozenByte – the guys who made the games Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor – was making a new game I was thrilled and knew I’d want to play it. When I heard it was a fantasy side-scrolling platform action game that...

As 3D titles continue to improve their visual and technical aspects, it’s become abundantly clear that 2D games have been all but perfected; With 3D games, many factors must be taken into account (a working camera, ground textures, pop-in, just to...

Trine is an action platforming game for PC, which is also on PSN and soon rumoured for Xbox Live. It is developed by the Finnish company Frozenbyte, who are known for their fun top-down shooter series Shadowgrounds. The game was released on PC on 3...

There is no school like the old school, and Trine is truly old school. A 2D slide-scroller with 3D models based in a fantasy setting, Trine is fresh and innovative. The game heavily relies on real-world physics, combining elements of puzzle and combat...

Bungling through Trine’s side-scrolling levels of physics puzzles with two friends is definitely the way to go. In single-player, you transform between these three characters, using their abilities to solve puzzles step by step. Conjure a platform...

Congratulations it's a Trine!The above hook line wasn't created just so I would be consistent with my clever one-liners, but is the perfect sentence to describe this game. Trine is what would happen if Fable 2 and Lost Vikings met at a Christmas...

The concept of Trine is simple, and actually quite well enshrined into the game’s lore. The player gets to control three characters which, after individual introductory segments, all come together and come into contact with an object known as the...

Trine is a high-production benchmark for downloadable games. Unfortunately it’s a bit overpriced on the PC, so you might want to keep your eyes peeled for the PlayStation 3 version, which is cheaper....

Trine is a high-production benchmark for downloadable games, earning GamePro's praise alongside such games as Super Stardust HD and PixelJunk Monsters. Unfortunately it's a bit overpriced on the PC, so you might want to keep your eyes peeled for...

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but its hard to imagine any beholder finding Trine to be anything but beautiful. Few 2D platformers have been rendered with this kind of visual grace. Elegant backgrounds bring Trines fairy tale to life:...

When I started playing Trine, I was shocked that I hadn’t heard anything about it prior to its release. Sure, it’s not quite as unique as games like Braid, but if it was any good, I expected to hear at least a little buzz about it. When...

We've been following Trine for a while now, and with good reason: a game that provides mishmash of platforming, action, and physics-based puzzle solving involving three different instantly interchangeable protagonists does tend to catch the...

Each character has three slots that can be used to store items found during the course of the game. These items can boost health or increase damage dealt out by that class (there are also certain items that can only be used by a particular class)....
