You can play single player, swapping between the characters as required, or with two or three friends (local or online) each taking a different character. Although the game looks like it needs to be played as a co-operative game with friends, it works fine in single player which for a game like this is unusual.
The majority of play is solving physics based puzzles, with occasional fighting sections. Use the magical powers of the wizard to create blocks to build stairways, fire arrows and grappling hooks from the thief's bow to pull levers, and use the knight's strength to defend the team from attacking enemies.
In single player (and the Unlimited co-op mode) you can swap characters at any time, and each character's abilities will be important to solve the puzzles. As you progress you can upgrade characters to gain abilities for later challenges.
Although the game is the same in each mode, the challenge is slightly different. In solo mode you have to concentrate on timing your character swapping so you have the right tools as the right time. In co-op mode you have to make sure all players can get through the level and you leave no one behind. This can mean a different solution from the one you used in single player mode.

You do not need to have played the previous Trine games in order to enjoy Trine 4 as it's a stand-alone story, but the characters are the same in all the editions. Either way, the result is a great game for three or four friends to play together, but also a fun single player experience.
