Belated Update News

2014年6月27日

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.

ゲームについて

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

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.

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.
