Reviews from our players
  • It's such a good game! I play every single day, and it's so involved. A bit of a learning curve, but good tutorials, and you'll get there.

    October 11, 2023
  • A beautiful longer paced game, with enough action to keep you busy for in my case 6 hours. Why get a real life when I have torn? (Joke)
    October 07, 2023
  • Really great game once you get the hang of it. But the days are just way to long. Maybe 3-4 game days in 24hours
    October 06, 2023
  • I have been playing for a year. It's an amazing game for those who enjoy a long term, text based game. I tend to uninstall games due getting bored. I haven't thought about it wihh this game at all. No ad disruption. Thank you devs.
    October 06, 2023

    October 06, 2023
  • Fun text based game with a social community. Devs actually play the game, cuz it's good. Raunchy humor, crime, employment, friendship. If you report a bug, it gets fixed.
    October 05, 2023
  • It is simple but complex at the same time. I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would. Reading a few of the new user guides in the in-game forum really made a difference in progress speed.
    October 04, 2023
  • I really like the game so much,it's user friendly and even a new players can understand it..it's a 10/10 for me
    October 02, 2023
  • love the game. would love to have a actually progress bar or something so I know when I'll level up next . and the but mugging needs a limit on Amount they can take a few thousand. but a few million is crazy
    September 29, 2023
  • I genuinely like this game. it does need a bit more simpler ways to navigate the first time playing the game but all in all its great
    September 28, 2023

    September 22, 2023
  • the game is very good, there a few improvements could be made when it comes to new players but the community in it is very good, find an active faction and you'll be set to enjoy
    September 14, 2023
  • it's fun but it's impossible to catch up to old players unless they stop playing and it takes a lot of patience, my tip would be to read the forums
    September 12, 2023

    September 12, 2023

Browser Games and Online Strategy Games

These days, with the most advanced personal computers and consoles in the world running games with cutting edge graphics, we can sometimes forget where we came from. The true essence of a game is in its gameplay and the way in which it involves players, which is why the browser based online strategy game is as popular as ever.

Everybody remembers the Runescape craze from a few years ago. That made browser games mainstream once again, but since its decline there has been a large gap. And we believe that Torn is the perfect game to fill that gap. This browser game is so appealing because it's also the type of game you can play at a pace that suits you. It's the type of game you can spend hours on or it's the type of game you can sneak onto whilst at work or to take a break. That's why Torn has tens of thousands of people playing each day.

Online strategy games are even better when it comes to playing within a browser, as the whole game is geared towards the casual player. This is what has made them so popular.

Torn is the ultimate online strategy game. It encompasses the depth and scale of a MMORPG with the ease-of-play of the simplest browser games. Now you can play anywhere, any time and enjoy this browser game in all its glory.
