A magical adventure is starting on PlayStation Network - are you ready to drift into the enchanting gameplay of Trine?
Trine brings fantasy to life. Designed to make you think as well as becoming enveloped by its misty and colourful storybook style presentation, the Frozenbyte developed PSN title mixes side scrolling platforming, adventure and puzzles to create a decidedly different type of game on PlayStation 3.
Set in a kingdom under the rule of a dark sorcerer and his undead army, Trine joins three characters together into an unlikely alliance as the only way to save their realm - although none of these protagonists would imagine such a noble quest when they first start, given their rather humble beginnings.
Zoya - a thief - finds herself trapped by the mysterious and powerful artefact, the Trine, when trying to steal from the Astral Academy, while the womanising wizard Amadeus stumbles across Zoya only to find himself stuck to the Trine as well. When bumbling knight Pontius finds both bound in the Academy, his attempt to bring them to justice by touching the artefact completes the Trine's magic and binds all three souls together, leaving them with the task of trying to find out how to undo the spell.
The scenario leaves you in control of the three protagonists using each of their abilities to overcome the different dangers they encounter on their quest - ranging from skeleton warriors who will hack, slash and relentlessly pursue you across platforms, to head-scratching puzzles and deadly spike filled traps.
You can only use one character at anytime, rather than all three simultaneously, however each of them is able to deal with specific threats the other cannot. Zoya can use her grappling hook to traverse unreachable ledges and areas, Amadeus can levitate certain objects as well as magically create a maximum of two blocks from thin air, and Pontius can smash through objects and enemies with his sword and protect himself with his shield.
With a vast variety of puzzles which can be solved in different ways through inventive means, there's already a lot of creativity and craft in Trine to look forward to. A two player co-operative mode is also in the pipeline so you won't have to battle alone - even though it may leave you with a new challenge when you and a friend disagree on how to tackle certain puzzles.
