O hře

Jak byste ovládali svá vojska, pokud by pro Vás čas neznamenal nepřekonatelnou překážku? Přesouvali byste své jednotky časem do doby, kde je zrovna potřebujete nejvíce? Nebo byste snad poslali své vojsko do minulosti, aby bojovalo po boku sebe sama? Oklamali byste nepřítele útokem na jeho zdroje surovin, přičemž byste následně pozměnili své rozkazy a zaútočili na jeho výrobní střediska? Nebo byste šel ještě dál?…


Achron je první strategickou hrou, ve které můžete přímo ovlivňovat tok času a měnit tak svou minulost či budoucnost, můžete přesouvat svá vojska napříč časem, případně vytvářet různé časové paradoxy, díky kterým pak získáte nad svým protivníkem převahu. Zahrát si můžete 4 odlišné kampaně nebo se lze rovnou připojit ke hráčům na celém světě a změřit své síly s přáteli v tomto neustále se měnícím herním prostředí.

  • Volně se pohybujte po časové ose a odhalujte tak protivníkovi strategie, sbírejte různé informace o bojišti nebo napravujte své vlastní taktické chyby.
  • Pošlete svá vojska do libovolného časového období.
  • Jednu hru může hrát až 15 hráčů.

This game is great.... so much so, that the featured a quote from my review on the store page.

That review can be found at the link or below. http://www.gamersdailynews.com/article-3013-Achron-Review-PC.html
(note... logged 30+ hours oustide of steam)

First, there was 2D. Then 3D. We even have 2.5D (3D models in a 2D world). Could it get any better? Achron thinks so, and they have added a new dimension to gaming. The 4th Dimension.... Time.Achron - Adding the fourth dimension to real-time strategies

That’s right, Achron is the first game that allows you play in the past, present, and future.... simultaneously. Self-described as a "meta-time strategy", Achron is essentially a mix of a Real Time Strategy game and a Stephen Hawking book. Now I know that sounds complicated, but surprisingly you pick up on the gameplay and strategy rather quickly.

Achron: Time Travel

Let’s be honest. Nothing I say about this game will be understood, until you first understand the time travel mechanics in the game. Like most RTS games you have the same basic controls. Unlike other RTSs, the bottom of your screen is filled with a time line and an energy meter. The time line allows you to see when a skirmish is taking place. Any changes that you make to the time line in the past require Chrono-energy. The bigger the change, the more energy required. This keeps things balanced by keeping people from exercising God-like power, and encourages good strategizing in the present.

When changes are made in the past, a time ripple will pass by and you will see the battle shift on the timeline before your eyes. But be careful that you don’t move units into an occupied location in the past. The result is what the developer calls "chronofragging", where only the strong units survive (though with substantial damage)

Achron Single Player

The single player campaign tells the story of the human race. As they explore space, they are faced with an enemy that seems to be unstoppable. That is, until scientists stumble on technology that allows you to not only teleport units spatially, but also chronoport them through time. Equipped with this newfound technology, it is your job as an Achron (someone who can see the whole timeline and make changes to the past) to lead your Marines to victory against an enemy who seeks to destroy you.

When I started playing the SP campaign, I have to admit, gameplay felt incredibly slow. I am primarily an FPS gamer and the reduction in pace tested my patience. That said, I fully understand the reasoning for the initially slow gameplay. Hazardous Software is introducing an entirely new concept to games, and this slow introduction was necessary to prevent a steep learning curve.

All in all, the SP campaign was solid. At times, I had the feeling that I couldn’t lose because of my time manipulation abilities, but the developers compensated for this by making your allies self-centered and self-preserving.

I would venture to say that it is necessary for everyone who tries this game to play an hour or so in the SP campaign to familiarize yourself with time manipulation and tactics.

Achron requires careful thought and time line tracking

Achron Multiplayer

Starcraft, move over. You finally have some competition in the RTS genre. After familiarizing myself with the 4th dimension, it was time to play some multiplayer. Everyone knows that multiplayer is what makes or breaks an RTS game, and Hazardous Software has delivered a winner.

Starting out on a multiplayer map, the only learning curve that you start with is learning the new names of some traditional units you have in all RTS games (like the resource collecting unit, building to research new technologies, etc). Within 45 minutes, I had it nailed down.

When I felt like I had enough of an army built up, I proceeded to attack my opponents. Boy was I wrong. My enemy had massive forces built up and proceeded to destroy me. In most RTS games, the match would have been over quickly. But don’t forget, time is on our side. Before it was too late, I chronoported my forces back in time, and stopped them from attacking an enemy that was too powerful. Laughter ensued as I heard my friend on team speak shout "What the? Your guys are disappearing!?!"

The only logical response was for my opponent to go back in time as well. Which I responded to by moved into the future. The rest of the match was cat and mouse until squad by squad, my death became unavoidable.

Hanging on to my last 10 units, I ran for my life, back and forth through time. Upon going back in time, I noticed that I had about double the units. Excited, but seeing my inevitable demise, I pushed for one final assault. As I began to attack, I noticed different characters disappearing suddenly. Then it all became clear to me!!!! The units that I thought were extra were actually the same ones that I already had! They were disappearing because I moved them into the past. I had become a victim of a TIME PARADOX!

Achron Final Thoughts

Achron is a game that will keep you begging for more. This is sure to become a LAN favorite across the globe. Plenty of thought, plenty of laughs, plenty of head scratching as players disappear and reappear before your eyes.

This game is a must buy for any fan of the RTS genre, anyone intrigued by time travel, and everyone with a keyboard.

The overall mechanic of traveling through time seemed like a no-brainer for a really cool RTS title. Achron just seems overall really boring to me.

If I could get my money back, I would.
