I'm so proud to be from a generation that hears the name "Archon" and thinks fondly back to the days when Electronic Arts elegantly packaged this work of genius. What a concept! Does it get any geekier than this? Highly unlikely. There's more goodness in the free version of this classic than a majority of the full versions you find in the App Store. But please do yourselves and the developers a favor and buy this game now. Don't put it off anymore. Even without the new update today, Archon would be cheap at ten times the price. You read that correctly. Think about it! It's like chess where your pieces have powers and abilities. Not only that, but the action combat sequences really make you earn that square.
It just begs the question--could Archon II: Adept be far behind? I hope not. I'd also like to see a new version of this gem come to the PC and Mac! Please say it'll happen and I can die happy.
One more thing--is there any way the old Commodore 64 version could be included as an unlockable feature? That would be a reason to buy an iPhone in and of itself. Thank you so much for bringing back one of my all-time favorite games. It shows class and sophistication like no other developer. Bless you.
yobill in charge
A worthy adaptation of the C64 classic for the iPhone. It's not exactly like the original, but the best aspects of the game are pretty much replicated here. Just like the original, the combat interface is a bit clunky, though the Knights/Trolls seem to fare better here than in the original, which is welcome. Moving around the board and casting spells is more difficult here than in the original, but this is likely something I will adjust to in time. Overall, I highly recommend for those who fondly remember playing this till 3AM on the Commod
yobill breaking into this dbag's comments- I am the master of Arch- Classic. Any of you chumps think you can take my top ranking away, bring it on. I smoke all y'all. yobill out.
I really love this game. Played the original growing up, and this one here has tremendous potential to be the perfect iPhone game.
I had this at 3 stars because there was bad controls as far as firing while moving. I played this again after patching and the problem is gone, this is now sooo much fun and frankly it's just very replayable. 5 stars now
