Archon Classic vásárlása

 

A játékról

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.

If you're young enough to remember when this original came out then you probably will enjoy this remake with the addendums to it. Half an hour into it and it feels pretty familiar. The action to claim squares in the game is great. Even the updated graphics are a nice touch.

This game had lots to promise but the misleading description had me believing I would get multiplayer with this and it only has Local (same room/display) multiplayer that only works well with game pads.

Still a good reboot of a classic game but the lies gives it a 7/10

The multiplayer mode is only hot-seat. (no lan/internet) < ----- that tells you what you need to know

Othewise the game is good, get it when its on sell. Fun little game worth a few hours sadly nothing more.

I played Archon on the Commodore 64 and it was one of my favorite games growing up. This version is both a faithful adaptation of the original game and a great modernization of that game. It is easily worth the money.

If you enjoyed the 80's original then you'll enjoy this. My only disappointment is that the shooting section hasn't aged that well.

GFX and sound are "ok"

Still recommended though

It's a fun little game that's like chess, but so much more crazy. It's hard to imagine this game came out like 30 years ago and is still pretty fun to play with some friends or family locally. Definitely worth a whirl once you figure out what game modes and settings you feel are most balanced.

A nice update of the 80s original. A different take on chess.

Trigger warning: wizards

This could have been a tactically complex, hardcore strategy game that I would buy and never play. Instead, combat is played out in janky 1v1 arena shooter format, destroying any semblance of strategy and making this a game I absolutely love.

This has to be the BEST remake of a classic 8-bit game (that I spent time from the 80's even today on the Commodore 64 playing). Other than the great graphics, there are new elements for battle and even leveling up. HOWEVER, if you don't care for the new features, you can turn them off. The only thing I would like added is the old title screen and chip-tune as an extra to view and bring back some more nostliga. But I'm not complaining.

Added game types like 'Conquest' is actually fun to play and helps develope skills. If any of you are a fan of the orginal Archon, then you really should play this game. It's so awesome.

Some classics should have stayed buried. This is one of them, Grounbreaking for it's time, fairly inane by now. If you loved the original stay away from this version. It will spoils your memories

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.

I consider myself to be a "Retro-Technologist", meaning that I still have functional classic computer. I have a Commodore 64/128, and my copy of Archon still works on it. I bought this game, and the classic mode is pretty much perfectly done. I have done side-by-side comparisons, and can notice no flaws in the Classic verion. Even that is well worth the $9.99 price tag! Add to that, the updated version, and you're really getting a bargain at that price.

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

I still can't believe no one picked this up when it came out, a faithful remake of a fantastic multiplayer game!
for those like myself who have enjoyed archon for years, online play is an amazing addition, and for everyone who missed this gem from the past : if you like the sound of turn based strategy mixed with furious action, check it out, it's cheap!

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.

Game was great back on the NES, I'm glad someone finally remade it. They did a good job remakeing it at that, the modern graphics do the orginal credit, and there's an awesome campain mode to boot. Supports controllers and multiplayer.
