  • simple yet complex. I havent unlocked most things yet but I continue to have to learn and develop. There is just soooooo much for a text based game. so far I am having a blast.
    April 28, 2024
  • I was torn on downloading this as I found the ads quite silly. However, I am very glad I did, as this game is my favorite mobile game to date. Hopefully game continues to be updated with new crimes and items added!
    April 27, 2024
  • Game is fun overall but why is this app just a frontend to a webpage?. Loading and connection take way too long and often fails. Why not just store more data on the users phone?.
    April 22, 2024

  • The crime update or whenever it was that updated it, is amazing. Just got back into the game after a few years away, and it has a ton of new interesting stuff to see and do.
    April 14, 2024
  • The game is great. If you decide to play it just know it's definitely a long term game but that's one of my favorite things about it because I can still be playing it years from now instead of it ending at a certain point.
    April 11, 2024
  • love the game. lots to do. I am not a fan on how you can be hit over and over again by the same person but am learning the game and still lots to unlock.
    April 10, 2024
  • a slow yet perpetual burn, something that you can forget about and then spend 10 hours defying reason looking at the marketplace.
    April 10, 2024
  • Absolutely one of the best games I have ever played, the app makes the game better by allowing a simplified means to play on the go.
    April 09, 2024

    March 25, 2024
  • Would've been better if y'all have an intergrated app for this. Although I do understand that it would be difficult to keep things in real time while also maintaining smooth experience
    March 25, 2024

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.
