I am playing Trine on PC (Steam version). Some achievements ask to collect all the Experience Potions in each level.

Some of them seems really difficult/impossible to get to me. I am wondering if I have to finish the game first in order to unblock other character abilities before I can be able to collect all potions?

Ideally, you will not need to backtrack. Because of Trine's linear progression, you won't encounter any experience orbs that you simply cannot get when you encounter them.

On the other hand, there's no reason not to finish the game before coming back and picking up the stragglers -- the later abilities (such as the wizard's floating platform) may not be required, but they can be extremely helpful all the same.

Yeah; I am trying to get all the experience (to get the skills -- no use for them after finishing the game) "soon", usually I don't even start the next level until I've collected everything. However, since I can't do that grappling stunt where you end up on the platform "above" you, some stuff is hard to reach -- but so far, I've been able to get everything, and I'm generally hoping that no levels require that grappling stunt :-) By now, the first walk through a level usually gets me at least 1 secret and almost all experience -- patience is king :-) – Christian Stieber Jun 19 '13 at 21:04
