So you’ve got a Wii U. You’ve exhausted Nintendo Land and beaten New Super Mario Bros. U. Now what?
If you haven’t played it on any other platform yet, may I suggest Trine 2: Director’s Cut? This great game got a mostly great port on the Wii U and is totally worth picking up. For more details, head over to Splitkick!

A wizard, knight, and thief walk into a bar. No, this isn’t the setup for a bad joke, but a bad setup for a Trine 2 review. In this 2D puzzle platformer, your objective is to use the three characters you have at your disposal to get past any obstacles in your way as you search for the a magical treasure. Though it was released last year on PC, Mac, XBOX Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, I didn’t really give it much thought. However, I always did hear great things about it, and I picked it up when it went on sale recently on XBLA.
It has been a slow summer for new releases. Instead of twiddling my thumbs, waiting for Borderlands 2 to ruin my life, I’ve been playing a bunch of backlog titles. Though some of these have been duds, I’ve played some awesome titles that I would have missed if I was jumping from one hot new release to the next.
In my latest Splitkick article, I highlight a few of these bright spots I’ve come across, such as Bullestorm, Trine 2, and Asura’s Wrath. If you’re interested in learning more about these titles, how I’m working through these slow summer months, or want to discuss how you’re spending your summer gaming time, head over to Splitkick!

I’m currently in the process of enjoying Trine 2. It’s a neat puzzle platformer that I don’t think will ever gain any sort of mainstream traction, but I’m glad that it exists. After putting in a few hours into it, I realized that the game was published by Atlus.
