ehmmm... now I should writes some sentences. But I have no words.
This game is... Fabolous. Literally and figuratively too.
The graphic details, the visual enviroment, the audios: the marvellous melodies and the cool effects,
the characters and their moving and skills. Great new features.
And the story? It's well-structured, spiced with appropriate humor and a few cuties.
The puzzles are not easy as earlier, but just so perfect!
Excellent sequel of the serie. Strongly RECOMMENDED. It worth even without on sale.
Sometimes I'm sorry I'm not a kid anymore. What an experience it would be to immerse in such a dream world! Now I'm 46 y/o, nevertheless I was 'Enchanted'.
(I such liked it that I write 2 mistakes in brackets only. :)
There's no any challenge in the battles, and there's zero achievement in the DLC.)
Well, Thank you, Ladies & Gentlemen. And as Zoya alluded to it at the end... We are looking forward to meet them in the next fable.

Beautiful tale in magical world. Remember all these beautiful moments from the past that brings you joy. Neverending story, hobit or Narnia. All lies here ready to be read by your eyes.
Control three fearless heroes into a jouney to save the prince from evil. Each one of them gives you unique gameplay with their special combined powers that helps you fix and unsolved many puzzles.
Stuning beautiful graphics makes this 2D platformer even more unique to this genre. Trine series going still strong and Im happy to wait for another one in the future.

Review from Steam

Rating: 9/10
Genre: 2D Puzzle Platformer
THE GOOD:
+ Once again, the graphics, atmosphere and setting are jaw droppingly gorgeous. Every level feels alive with each level having its own distinct environment
+ Puzzle solving is extremely well done, where the game gradually introduces new mechanics and slowly ramps up the difficulty. Most of the puzzles do a good job of utilizing all three characters and given the physics nature of the game you can solve puzzles multiple ways. It feels extremely satisfying to solve puzzles.
+ The game does a fantastic job of tracking your collectables. You can easily see which collectables you are missing and go back into the level and search for them within a specific checkpoint. Finding all collectables allows you to unlock a secret easter egg in the main menu which I thought was cool.
+ Bosses do a good job of utilizing each character’s strength as you try to figure out how to beat them.
THE AVERAGE:
+ Combat scenarios take place sporadically throughout each level to offer a break with the platforming and puzzle solving. The knight character is the best suited for this task but feels less engaging as you just hack and slash enemies and jump around to avoid damage.
CONCLUSION:
Another great game in the Trine series. This is definitely more streamlined than the previous entries but that isn’t a bad thing as this game really focuses on its strengths and really allows you to soak in the graphics and solve some really clever puzzles.

Review from Steam

This game works really well if you crave more co-op gameplay after finishing ''It takes two''. Great graphics. Fun, accessible, not overly complicated puzzles. Abilities are a bit limited. Well worth the money on a 75% discount.

Review from Steam

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a P2P puzzle-themed game. You can either play in Single or in Multi-player and the puzzle will vary according to the no. of players.
It is mostly puzzle-solving to get across to different areas with some combats during some parts.
The gameplay is not hard, and the achievements can be obtained when you have gotten all experience (pink drops) / treasures / explored all the hidden spots for letters/knicknacks/treasures (which is fun ^_^)
It is definitely worth the price if there is an on-going sale, the graphics, especially the background is super super beautiful
Do note that I think you will have to get a good laptop or desktop that can handle the RAM/GPU, I think this game will be pretty demanding like other AA/AAA games

Review from Steam

I've played all parts of Trine so far and still love them (even Trine 3, tho many disagree with the 3D graphics which can be annoying at times, yes), not only for their stunning graphics, but also for fun all of the puzzles give. The DLC was a bit buggy with a lot of visual glitches when attaching ropes or so, but only in multiplayer.
Even tho I played through it a few times already, I still do it again when I feel like I need it.
Trine 4 in specific combined all good elements from 2 and 3 and put them into one, in addition with even better graphics and atmosphere and music. Probably one of the few games where I don't turn off the music while playing. Even the small narrations are just very well implemented and I like the conversations between the characters teasing each other.
The only point where I'd say it's lacking is the story itself in 4, but the overall world building is quite good (although you don't feel it as much in 4 as in the other parts). The character sprites as well always look a bit different and I, for one, prefer the ones from the other parts, but I guess that's up to everyone to decide for themselves (you don't see the faces anyway apart from cutscenes).
I hope everyone who got let down from the annoying 3D perspective in Trine 3 will give Trine 4 a try and enjoy it as much as I did.
I got a bit let down since 1-3 were all released for Linux as well, but suddenly 4 was not and when I tried running it at first, it crashed every 10 minutes, that was pretty annoying (I think it says much about the game that I still played through it the first time with those crashes, probably had given up already if it hadn't been as good). Anyway, with Proton it works really well now and yes, I had preferred had they released it for Linux, but I don't mind it anymore.
I don't know why I didn't write this review earlier, I bought the game instantly when I came out, but maybe I'm just getting back to the Trine hype.
Hope this review helps :D (did I already say the graphics and music are good?!)
