Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince
Its puzzles are both simple and clever, opening it up to a wider audience, but switching between characters in order to use different abilities tends to be more frustrating than not.
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a return to form for the enjoyable platforming puzzler series, shifting back the perspective to 2.5D while delivering another stunning, satisfying experience.
Trine 4 feels like a return to what made the series great to begin with. A beautiful world filled with challenging (but not too difficult) puzzles to solve, combined with drop-in/drop-out co-op, makes for a great game to play with friends. Some puzzles were perhaps not fully tested, but a simple reset usually rights things again. If you were a fan of the gameplay in the 2.5D Trine games, you'll find a lot to love here.
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a welcome return for the franchise. It's arguably the best entry to date thanks to creative level design, gorgeous landscapes and excellent multiplayer. It may not be a new take on the formula like some expected, but considering the last time Frozenbyte tried that, perhaps this is for the best.
Good old heroes are back with new funny story and they are in fine condition again.

Trine 4 is beautiful and perhaps a bit too straightforward for solo players, but it shines brilliantly in co-op.
Outrageously pretty and newly refined, Frozenbyte's series finally strikes gold.
Puzzle design does the heavy lifting for Trine 4, a fun but ultimately hollow experience.
A welcome return to form for the series, and while the co-op puzzle-solving no longer seems quite as original as it once did it's never been as enjoyable or varied as this.
