Toren is a good story that suffers in the telling, with simplistic platforming that's hampered by a sloppy camera and controls.

Toren shoots for the moon but lands nowhere special.

Regardless of my complaints, Toren still successfully brings home an intriguing experience, rife with beauty and intrigue. Its technical merits or lack thereof may frustrate some, but I feel no worse for wear. If you're looking for a short, colorful adventure to entertain you for a few hours, it's hard to go wrong here. Just watch your step.

Toren is a very cool concept that's held back by its rough presentation, especially on the PC platform. Truth be told though, I think developer Swordtales should keep making games and simply refine its touch, as the studio clearly has the knack for it.

Audience Reviews

6 / 10.0
I absolutely love short games that tell beautiful stories. A game that really doesn't have much gameplay, but just enough to get the story and help you feel for the characters. Toren is one of those game, it has so much potential, but is extremely rough around the edges. There's actually more negative than positive for this game, but for some reason, it's worth a playthrough,
