Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince on Nintendo Switch. Experience the most complete Trine ever created! The Trine series returns to the magic of 2.5D with Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince! The three heroes of the best-selling adventure series are back, sent on a quest to retrieve the troubled young Prince Selius. Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief are joined together once again on a thrilling quest through fantastical fairytale landscapes teeming with danger.
Prince Selius suffers from intensely dark dreams and, due to his magical talents, monstrous nightmares can slip into reality and wreak havoc on the waking world. Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya must find the afflicted prince and resolve the desperate situation before the world is engulfed by the Nightmare Prince’s shadows. Trine 4 reaches new heights in the series, bringing the most complete gameplay experience ever to fans and new players alike!
The three amigos are back and this time its to defeat the nightmare prince Selius. The game took around 15 hours to complete, and this was due to the huge amount of puzzles littered through the game. Trine’s combat isn’t very engaging, so they tend to lean heavily on the puzzle side of things.
The developers have stuck with the same abilities for the characters. But have come up with a slew of new puzzles to have to use them. Just when you think you have solved all the puzzles, they throw something like water at you. They will test you and make you use the characters abilities in ways you haven’t done before.
Halfway through you get more abilities, this then includes a ramp-up in difficulty for the puzzles. You know what you have to do, but not how to do it.
The game encourages you to find new ways around puzzles. I spent a while trying to solve one with the shield. But then realised I could just make it like the wizard. Though this wasn’t the solution, it still worked.
This is a great game when playing solo. But throw in two firends and it becomes an amazing game. You can start to work as a team to solve puzzles and work through the game. What happened when I tested it was that it all turned into a mess, and everyone was trying to do it themselves. I’m trying to create a box as the wizard, but then the knight knocks it.
You’ll want to play this game over and over due to the multiplayer and the addition of collectables. These are hidden throughout the game and will need to be collected.
Thank god they did away with the 3D elements of Trine 3 and stuck with the 2.5D style we all know and love. The look is beautiful with bright colours and clear characters. The levels are dynamic and different, looking great on handheld and even better in docked.
Overall, this is a Nintendo Switch classic. It has everything you’d need in a game. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
