I walked away from Trine 4 enchanted by its marvelous visuals and excellent puzzle design that gave me the freedom to experiment. The choice to take the game back to its side-scrolling roots results in a brilliant return to form, and it’s crafted in such a way that feels like a heartfelt apology to those underwhelmed by the previous game’s controversial design choices. I’m not sure when we’ll see another return to this magical world, but I can’t wait to catch up with these old friends again someday.
In Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince they largely succeed, having crafted a fun platformer that is great to play either solo or with friends (assuming everyone can communicate). If you loved the first two games, yet loathed the third, give The Nightmare Prince a play: you’ll be charmed by it’s whimsical ways, warts and all.
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a sequel that plays it very safe – which, in this particular case, is for the better. Coming back to the traditional style of co-op gameplay and puzzle solving that made the first two games so delightful is exactly the kind of refocusing that the Trine series needed after the misfire of Trine 3. Some lackluster puzzle designs, technical issues, and a lack of difficulty stand in the way of it overtaking Trine 2 as the best of the series, but Trine 4 still remains a shining example of how cooperative gaming should be, and is one of the most gorgeous looking 2.5D games of 2019.
