Background

Archon – There’s a board. There are pieces with varying powers, squares to move into and an opponent to conquer. Once you decide where to attack, the board explodes into a battlefield. Your pieces, which include phoenixes, golems and wizards, fight the banshees, goblins and sorceresses. They cast spells and throw missiles in a fight to the finish. Only if you’re smart, fast and dextrous will you win.

Archon II – The age of Archon is ending. Mighty wars of magic rage and monsters roam the elements, hungry for power and prey. This is a unique blend of strategy and arcade action, incorporating 4 different battlegrounds for Earth, Water, Fire and Air. Conjure up to 12 different monsters , and play against a friend or a computer player that gets tougher as you do.
