Update 1.1.12

We've got lots of good stuff in this latest update.

  • Some Conquest boards have been tweaked so the AI no longer hides in the corner, making it nearly impossible to get gold.
  • We fixed a problem causing the game to crash on some 32 bit systems.
  • The long time V-Sync issue causing your warriors to freeze up in combat has been resolved.
  • Added a launch option for windowed mode. Just add "-windowed" (without the quotes) to the launch options for Archon in Steam. You can also set the window size explicitly with "-windowed [width] [height]".

Feel free to post any comments, questions, or problems in the forum.

Belated Update News

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.

关于这款游戏

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.

Key features:

  • Up to 4 Player support...pure mayhem in battle!
  • Play in "Free-for-All" or "Teams" mode
  • USB controller support

Archon is one of my all time favorites on the C64. This remake re-creates the original perfectly, while adding a lot of new content and game modes. There are three big problems though:

1) the original Archon is 31 years old (as of 2014). While the core mechanics have aged very well we have to admit that much water has passed under the bridge since. There are thousands of better games, more deep, more strategic, more multiplayer, more everything that appeared on the market in the last 30 years. So if you want to play it to feed your nostalgia or to experience a game of the past, fine. But compared with many recent titles this isn't obviously the best game that your money can buy, not by a long shot.

2) The most fun part of Archon was to play with your friends that were in the same room. That was the way of playing multiplayer games back then. Playing solo or online detract immensely from the experience rendering the game almost "useless"

3) The graphics are bad. There's no art direction, the characters are soulless pre-rendered sprites of the worst type , completely out of context and with ugly animations. Textures, colors, backgrounds, fonts are put together with no taste at all. It looks very amateurish (even if the game as a whole it's not) and this is a pity since a remake with outstanding artistic qualities could have been a great game. A game that could have made us completely forget the two points above.

In its current form the game is just "decent". I would not recommend it at full price, but if you are an old school gamer try to buy it on sale, mostly for collection purpose.

Despite all the above I don't feel like giving Archon a bad review, just remember to get it at low price.

Good idea - unfortunatlly this is action (arcade) game not logical - stupid (where I find function "disable real time arcade battle after move"? You don't find.).

I don't recommend because in this game destroyed potential of a logical game. Stupid arcade fight after move (in real time) destroy the whole game. Unfortunately, this is a classic archon. If you like arcade game and old Archon buy it. But if you like much better logic games or turn based strategy don't buy Archon (you can't disable battles in real time after move - this is stupid)
Game has only hotseat multiplayer (in the same computer) without online and wihout lan



I would like to play in this game like in chess or "turn based strategy" but stupid arcade fight after move destroy the whole logic potential this game. Is possible to play like in chess? - answer: Unfortunatlly not.

- authors think about it

Sorry for my English

An excellent remaster of a classic (which by the way I've never played).
The gameplay itself is pretty well executed and can be addicting as well, that is if you play the game in "Free Mode" where you can play the core experience itself without any restrictions (by that I mean that all chess-pieces and their powers are available).
The campaign howewer can get awfully boring after a while, especially if you're planning to complete all 4 of them. I never did. I played the "Free Mode" instead where I can use everything I want to, choose the tactics on my own and I'm not forced to win a game with let's say, 3 "pawns".

Awesome remake of an old (almost obscure) C64 game. Kind of like chess with mythical beasts except you get a chance to fight your opponent in an arena. I love this! thanks for the remake

I'm so excited that this game exists again! The implementation is clearly a little rough (you can tell right away from the menus), but the developers seem to have captured everything that was awesome about the original game and added a bunch of great new content.

This game is 10 cases of epic. Yes, it's a 2D Chess game, but it's BATTLE CHESS. You literally fight each other using the chess pieces in a 1v1 combat match for each piece. This is easily one of the most fun simple games I've ever played. I paid $1 for it during the Steam Summer Sale, but I would've gladly paid up to $10 for it. That's how awesomely fun it is.

Note that I did play with my nephew locally, so it may not be as fun if you don't play with other real people.

OK, first off, I loved the original computer game from the 80s as well as the sequel. This is just bad. This game has bad graphics, bad sound effects, and annoying music. Neither the campaign mode nor any of the added features like a 4-player variation make this game worth any amount. Also, only local multiplayer? All this game has going for it is nostalgia. Oh yeah, did i mention the hard crash to the Windows desktop midgame? I am glad I ONLY paid 99 cents for it. Stay away.

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.

Wonderful in its day. But the updated version can't really mask the basic, slow gameplay.

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.

The challenges of the campaigns are badly designed. AI never attacks the player so completing some missions within allowed number of turns is not possible. Otherwise, it's an ok remake of the original game, although I see no logic behind the movement speed determined for each battle.

This is a game from my childhood. If you didn't play the original, I doubt that you will like it. I would play Archon frequently with a friend. Basically, it's fantasy chess with "living" pieces. When a piece invades an enemy's square, you fight it out. It's simple, but fun.

It reminds me of the old archon game I would play on my commodore 64. I would recommend getting a gamepad of some sort to use with this game. I found it kind of difficult to control with just the keyboard

Great remake of a great classic. Controls are tight and the updated graphics are nice. My only complaints are: no online multiplayer and the computer AI is fairly exploitable, which means replay value is limited unless you have three local buddies and as many gamepads.
