Torque 2D is the world's most powerful and easy-to-use 2D game engine. Built atop the common Torque core architecture, it offers many of the features of our cutting-edge 3D game engine, but customized for 2D gameplay. With development paths that allow publishing to Windows, Mac, Xbox 360*, Wii*, iPhone*, your game will reach the widest possible audience. And with its intuitive and powerful editor, anyone can jump into game creation with little to no prior knowledge. *Requires a separate licenseYour license to Torque 2D provides you with a 100% complete 2D feature set.Cross Platform, Dual Graphics API
Torque products are built on a common architecture, but optimized per platform and Torque 2D supports a wider range of platforms than any other modern game engine technology. Build and deploy to PC, Mac, Wii*, and Xbox 360* all from the same project. You can even take the project to the iPhone* with some simple modifications for the hardware. *Requires a separate licenseLevel Editor
Torque 2D's Level Editor provides an entire suite of WYSIWYG tools for designing and editing a game. The Level Editor is fully integrated with the Torque runtime and provides full access to all Torque subsystems allowing for:

  • Object placement and manipulation
  • Property inspection and editing
  • Importing and managing assets
  • Performance profiling
  • No compile time
  • Particle effects
  • Tile manipulation
  • Behavior assignment

Torque 2D's powerful rendering is perfectly suited to achieving a great-looking artistic style. Torque 2D's graphics API includes implementations for all types of hardware and operating systems performing on more than 99% of all gamer hardware (Steam Hardware Survey). Console graphics implementations for the Xbox, iPhone, and Wii provide a straightforward path for developers to reach gamers on those devices as well.Behaviors
Torque 2D allows users to share snippets of code easily within the editor. Simply create a behavior, send the behavior file to a friend, and tie the file to the editor. This allows coders and artists to share gameplay elements without ever writing a single script.Networking
Torque 2D's integrated networking system makes implementing event-based multiplayer options a breeze. RPG and RTS games can be made to easily support multiplayer modes on any network.Scripting
Torquescript is a fast, easy to use C++ like scripting language that ties all the various elements of a project together. It supports a large complement of functions including math, object manipulation, fileIO, and more. Torquescript features:

  • Object-oriented programming
  • Transparent interconnection with external C++ objects
  • Built-in fast 3D math (vectors, matrices, and quaternions with all corresponding functions)
  • Well-documented standard library (hundreds of functions out-of-the box)

Most game functions can be programmed in Torquescript, and engine additions such as physics or intense AI coded in C++ are called from script.Physics
Torque 2D physics are modeled after real-world Newtonian physics. Apply inertia, linear velocity, angular velocity, friction, restitution, relaxation, damping, or a number of other physical attributes to your object and watch it handle interactive collision with perfect scaling.GUI
Torque provides for fully customizable GUI module including:

  • Widgets, containers and dialogs
  • Transparency, animation
  • Easy-to-use GUI files
  • Skins support
  • Support for Unicode development
  • Localization packs support

Torque's Level Editor is built entirely using this GUI system, so it is platform independent.

Torque 2D uses the OpenAL sound library by default and supports a wide range of features. These include:

  • Stereo, Streaming Sound
  • SFX/Music driver
  • 2D sound support for panning, volume, Doppler, cones
  • Multi-channel prioritized SFX manager
  • Built-in Theora video codec playback
