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.

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.

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

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.

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.
