Belated Update News

2014년 6월 27일

We recently updated Archon after years of not touching it, and some of you may be wondering what that was all about. The main thing was that we wanted to be able to track how people are playing the game, to see if they prefer Light or Dark, and which units kill what other units. We want to get this info to help us in designing other games and improving on Archon. We also added some maps and tweaked some graphics while we were in there.

Another update is in the works that will address some issues with the Conquest campaign and vertical sync.

Inspired by chess, but adding combat that YOU control, Archon was the original Battle Chess. You must try to outmaneuver your opponent using teams of fantasy creatures or monsters in this epic struggle of Light and Dark. On the chess board, when you challenge a piece, you are teleported into a Combat Arena where you fight in REAL-TIME until only the victor emerges to claim the square on the chess board. Conquer your opponent by defeating all of their pieces on the chess board or claim all the Power Squares for a quick victory! You can play Free-For-All mode, where it's everyone for themselves, or play using teams and gang up on your opponents pieces in battle (2 vs. 1.)

Archon:Classic can be played using USB controllers (the best way) or with keyboard and mouse. First developed in 1983, Archon quickly became a hit and instant classic because of it's unique combination of action and strategic gameplay. We've recreated it to play just like the original, but we've added enhancements for today's gamer. So grab some friends and experience the classic game that started the Action/Strategy genre.

The remake of this classic game is almost excellent! The graphics are modern (ok it might not be top notch like in Dota2 but still it’s a great visuals to performance ratio).
We have many new features which introduces a little bit more complexity to the original gameplay in respect to the strategic and RPG element of it.
The new features include: campaign mode (actually 2 campaigns for light and 2 for dark), different layouts (boards), secondary abilities, different kind of magic squares, different difficulty levels and finally we have piece leveling up (up to third level).

My only complaint is about the multiplayer - it should really be implemented as some sort of LAN or steam server matchmaking and not a hotseat.
Anyway it’s definitely worth the $10!

8/10

a remake of original Archon with
+ better graphics.
+ new layouts.
+ very similar gameplay.
+ singleplayer campaign.
+ multiplayer mode up to 4-players!
(it's possible for 2vs1 battle, should be possible too for 2vs2)

the problems are :
- the graphics are still not good compared to current games.
- the AIs are either too easy or too difficult.
- the (early?) campaign is just some repetitive battles.
- the multiplayer mode is only hot-seat. (no lan/internet)

if you were a fan of original Archon, have extra gamepads and
friends nearby to play with, maybe you can enjoy the game.

Giving this a thumbs up because it's a damn classic and everyone should play it for a bit. On the other hand, it's aged pretty bad. Loved it as a kid decades ago, but nowadays it's just a bit too basic to hold my attention longer than a half hour or so.

Based off the obscure NES title, Archon, you and an opponent face each other in a mixture of chess and arcade-style combat. Move pieces around a board to capture important squares, but when two pieces meet, you directly control them on the field of battle in real time! Very fun, but it's only got local multiplayer, and playing against the computer isn't particularly stimulating.

Without nostalgia guiding your purchase or an IRL friend, I can't recommend this title - but if you have either, give it a shot.

Kind of fun.
Basically you get a squarelike alternating chess-ish platform, where on you upon engaging an enemy, ends up on a flatground with rocks and battles your enemies using your arrows and attack keys.
So both point and click with some thinking, and some battle that require some skills.
But its still quite simple so its not that fun for long.

A wonderful remake of the Atari 8 bit classic Archon. Graphics and sound are fine, but it's the great gameplay that makes this game so enjoyable.
The original Archon only had one game board and no campaigns. This game has many different game boards and some interesting and challenging campaigns. I've put a lot of hours into the campaigns and more than got my moneys worth.
