A First Look at Trine 2 Gameplay, in a Little More Than 5!
I remember that my first video game on a console was Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island for the SNES. Today, games of that genre, platformers, are few and far-between, and rarely seen in the mainstream video game market. Today I did a first look at Trine 2, a platformer made by Frozenbyte, an indie company. The game is available, and even on sale, through Steam.
Trine 2 is a fantastic game that, rather than creating compulsions like most of today’s hot titles, the game satisfies compulsions. The game is a medium-paced side scrolling platforming game with three available characters, the thief, the wizard, and the warrior. The game’s graphics are absolutely phenomenal to the point where I have not even tried maxing out the settings, for fear that my FPS will be demolished.
The game is different from a traditional platformer because it has three different characters that one can swap between at any point in time during the game, which gives a very wide variety of solutions to potential problems. If you haven’t picked up on the vibe yet, the game also has a serious aspect of problem solving to it, so much that it is considered both a puzzle game and a platformer.
If you act today, you can find the game for sale on Steam for under three dollars, an incredible bargain! The only con that the game has is that the story is, though detailed, somewhat bland and stereotypical. On the other hand, however, when has anyone ever bought a platformer for the story line?
