    AceTheSilver's Trine 2 (PC)

    [April 30, 2013 07:24:24 PM]
    Trine 2 is a 2D platformer style game in which you control one of three characters to progress through each level.

    Amadeus, the Wizard:
    Amadeus has the ability to interact with the environment by using magic to grab and move objects, as well as the ability to create boxes out of thin air.

    Zoya, the Thief:
    Zoya has a bow as a weapon, and thus is good at taking out ranged objectives. She also has the ability to grapple to certain surfaces in the game world, allowing her to swing from them or climb to them.

    Pontius, the Knight:
    Pontius has a sword and shield which make him the primary choice for combat. He also has a large hammer which can be used for both combat and to destroy objects that may be blocking the path.

    The first level of the game introduces each character and lets the player get a feel for their abilities and uses in the game. After the initial level, if you are playing through as a single player game, you are able to switch freely between the three characters. Each character has their own life bar, and in the event that one character 'dies', they are unusable until you come to a checkpoint. If you are playing through as a co-op game, each player (up to 3) plays as one character, allowing each character to be active at the same time.
    Throughout the game, there are 'puzzles' during which you need to use a particular character or series of characters to progress past. For instance, you may need to move a bolder with Amadeus to enter a tunnel, or create a box with Amadeus so Zoya can climb it to grapple to another object. The puzzles for the main story can, as you would suspect, be completed in single player mode. Co-op usually makes the puzzles easier, as you do not have to switch between characters to complete them.
    There are also magic vials throughout each level that allow the player to increase skills. For every 50 vials collected, the player is awarded one skill point. These skill points can be used to level up skills in the character skill tree. Each character has their own skills that can be leveled up, but the skill points do not share across them. In a co-op game, the skill points are not shared between players, rather the host of the game gets to decide where to spend the skill point.
