Archon Classic packshot image
Inspired by chess, but adding combat that YOU control, Archon was the original Battle Chess. On the chessboard, when you challenge a piece, you are teleported into a Combat Arena where they fight in REAL-TIME until only the victor emerges to claim the square back on the checkered board. You must try to outmaneuver your opponent using teams of fantasy creatures or monsters in this epic struggle of Light and Dark. 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.)
