Trinity Fusion Reviews
A good roguelite that stands out for its action and premise, but that lags behind the greats of the genre. Still, if you like action and platform games and are looking for a new roguelite to get hooked on for hours on end... Look no further.

Multiverses may be overdone in moviedom, but they've provided some fresh and very welcome ideas in Trinity Fusion. As such, this is one of the most enjoyable rogue-lites I've played all year. Add to that the responsive controls and engaging combat and this is easily Angry Mob Games' best release yet.
Trinity Fusion may not be the most original game, but it's good looking, exciting to play and features enough new ideas to earn its place at a crowded table.
Trinity Fusion approaches the rogue-lite genre with accessibility in mind. While enemy variety is small, boss fights soon grow trivial, and it doesn't offer the same complex options as other entries, the true enjoyment comes in the combat itself. With ways to make this enjoyable gameplay easier or harder, this is the perfect game for newcomers and aficionados to try.
Trinity Fusion has a unique premise but quickly falls into the tried and tested conventions of the genre. The gameplay loop is addictive and offers variety through the number of options available and different locations for each character. While elements of the combat are strong, such as evasion, it lacks the fluidity seen with its peers. Trinity Fusion has a lot of interesting ideas and the drip-fed story adds intrigue, however, its reliance on familiar traits makes this blend into the crowd.
To say that Trinity Fusion is missing the mark would be overlooking its other successes as a roguelite. It boasts fluid combat and platforming that keep its gameplay fresh. The weapon/spell management tied with the Amplification system creates a persistent set of variance that avoids becoming stale. My main two critiques of the game are that of its hazy progression system and its lack of a concrete pull that keeps players engaged for longer periods of time. I know that Angry Mob Games has additional content on the way, but waiting a smidgen longer may let Trinity Fusion hit its stride as a roguelite.
For almost everything that Trinity Fusion does right, it fumbles equally in some other crucial aspect.
Trinity Fusion is enjoyable to play, but the overall package feels lacking in comparison to others in the genre. The lack of character development, and underwhelming visuals are kept afloat by enjoyable core gameplay that should mostly appeal to dedicated fans of the genre.
Trinity Fusion brings a good mix of the roguelite and metroidvania genres. However, some limitations in its build creation system and the constant feeling of repetition of scenarios and enemies prevent it from reaching a more prominent place among the many options in the genre.

Trinity Fusion is built around a combat system that’s easy to understand but hard to master. I like the focus on picking the best mix of weapons and Amplifiers, creating synergies that make handling both groups and individuals easy. The rogue-lite elements are not very deep, but they offer players extra options to tweak their playstyle. Choice matters and there’s plenty of space for experimentation.
It's one of those games that requires a fair amount of patience and tenacity. With elements of roguelike and Metroidvania, the gameplay is great, but relentless and depressing at times. But for stubborn and persistent players, the game will reward their persistence and dying with great fun.

While I do wish that rogue-likes at least kept the bosses dead in each run, I do realise it’s simply part of the experience and have to embrace it as such. Trinity Fusion is certainly one of the better and more accessible rogue-likes I’ve played, even with the procedural generation’s seemingly random difficulty spikes. It takes a lot for a rogue-like to pop up on my radar and this year Trinity Fusion is the second one to do just that and keep me coming back for more.
Trinity Fusion offers a fresh perspective in the roguelike genre, impressively blending elements from successful predecessors with its own unique twist. While the genre often faces skepticism, this game from Angry Mob Games manages to captivate with an addictive gameplay loop set in a narrative-driven multiverse. Players navigate different biomes with three versions of the protagonist, Maya, each possessing unique abilities and encouraging diverse playstyles. The game shines with its engaging combat system that combines rhythmic actions and strategic weapon choices, though it faces challenges in visual presentation and character animation. Despite some repetitive environments and occasional bugs, the game's rewarding upgrade system and varied enemy encounters keep the experience fresh.
Trinity Fusion uses the basics of roguelike to create a fun and dynamic adventure, with agile combat and a considerable variety of weapons and abilities. It doesn't innovate, far from it, and leaves something to be desired in terms of the structure of its stages, but the experience proved to be very enjoyable for fans of the genre.

With multiple playable characters, responsive gameplay and excellent procedurally generated levels to explore, Trinity Fusion definitely scratches that action-roguelike itch and promises to provide more in the very near future.
Trinity Fusion really never had a chance of taking the place of my favorite roguelikes, but it’s a solid effort that with time could easily remain in my top three and has broken the cycle of disappointment I’ve found with similar games. If you’ve seen everything Dead Cells has to offer, it’s a worthwhile, albeit slightly flawed successor. Hopefully Angry Mob will show the same level of devotion and care for it in post-release content. Be it free or paid, I’ll use it to lift its bronze pedestal up just a little more with each new addition.
Trinity Fusion cleverly combines roguelike gameplay and a solid understanding of Metroidvania mechanics with unique ideas and some unmistakable originality. This action-packed platformer should appeal to fans of multiple genres with its strong gameplay and beautiful visuals.
Trinity Fusion provides a very good time that fans of roguelikes and 2D action games really shouldn't miss. The game weaves its multiversal mystery throughout your many runs towards the Harmonisers, crafting a fun narrative out of the cast's repeated jaunts across different realities. The combat and platforming is satisfying and delightful, with chaining together melee attacks, gunplay and air dashes feeling effortless and engaging. As with many roguelikes, the repetition sets in before long, with limited level designs and an Amplifier mechanic that discourages experimentation, but the game is still a blast while it lasts.
