Pros:Fun, challenging, slow battery usage, fit for kids 8 and up.

Cons:Handles are a bit sensitive and the batteries are difficult to remove.

The Bottom Line: A fun game for all ages. Game driven by voice commands and bending and twisting it's parts. Much fun.


Let me inform you that there was no photo of Torx available on Epinions to show you what the game looked like. I found one and copied it. I added it to my profile page in hopes that you who have never seen one might benefit by having a visual.

Torx is a game that I found to be quite a bit of fun. It was surprisingly challenging but yet simple to learn. You won't need an instruction book for this game.

You will find this game will entertain you for a while, but will entertain your child long enough to make the purchase worth it. It doesn't cost that much. $18.98 at Wal-Mart and you will need to buy the batteries separate. It take 3 double AA's. The batteries are difficult to remove and you will need something small and pointy to pop the bottom one out.

Battery life is fair to above average. Depending of course on wear and tear. But an average life span is about 100 to 200 plays. I realize that is a broad range but as I mentioned it depends on wear and tear and play length time.

Torx is very flexible and it turns in many directions. If you look at the photo on my profile page you will see that there are two handles and a 4" center disk that is about 2½" thick. The male robotic voice commands will emit from this disk-like object.

The handles on either side of the Torx will bend both up and down. They will also twist back and forth. That will be the how the game operates.

When you first begin, Torx will tell you bend one of the handles to play the current game or to twist the handle to choose another game. There are 4 games. Game one has you follow Torx command. Game two has Torx wanting you to find the shape he wants to be. This is the game that will tell you whether you are hot and cold as you twist and bend him. Game three is Torx giving you Simple Simon type sound commands that you will follow to achieve your score. Game 4 consists of a more speed like game where Torx will give you several commands at once for you to follow. You will have to remember these in order. Points consist of 1 per correct twist or bend.

The handles on Torx are slightly padded and comfortable to hold. The grip is fair but I find that when you are trying to hurry and you are hold one side outwards and attempt to straighten the other up from a bending position, the opposite side may bend slightly from pressure and cause you to loose that round. So, be careful!

The overall measurements of Torx are 10.5 x 13.0 x 2.5

It is easy to handle and it fits well in an 8 year olds hands as well as in my husbands hands. So, as you can tell, it is appropriate for all ages. Even smaller children, provided they are old enough to follow commands.

How do my kids like it? Well, as for myself, I love it. It is fun and it has provided many hours of fun for the kids since they received it Christmas from their Uncle and Aunt. We have only needed to replace the batteries once and we all have contests to see who can get the highest scores. You can erase the current scores to by the way. So far, my oldest son has the highest score of 97. It really is fun.

Torx can be found at most toy stores, places such as Wal-Mart and with online stores. Hasbro manufactures this game and I have found that their products are dependable for the most part. As good as the the next guy. I would recommend this game as an inexpensive way to entertain your children for hours and maybe even have some fun yourself or with other grown-ups. Give it a try!
