A chess board is lined with trolls, wizards, knights and other magical beings. Just another strategy game? Don't count on it. When you challenge a square held by the enemy, the board explodes into a battlefield. Your strategic skills on the game board will determine your fate in battle as you take on your opponent in a heartpounding duel to the death. With sixteen different characters and an ever-changing board, you'll never play the same game twice. If the Goblin catches air with his club, the swift sword of the Knight may steal a leg or two. The Sorceress has no fear of the massive, boulder-heaving Golem. One of her powerful spells could quickly send him into the next time zone. Explosive battles! Fire an arrow, cast a lightning bolt, or scorch your opponent with a fire ball. Seven magic spells! Imprison the enemy, heal your creature's wounds, reverse the flow of time and more. Summon the Elementals! Air, Water, Fire and Earth are all at your command. One or two-player action! Challenge the computer or test your skills against a friend.

Additional Information

The forces of light and dark are engaged in a climactic battle, and your decisions and skill will determine its outcome. Based on the computer title from Electronic Arts, Archon for NES is a board game with a twist: you must actively battle your opponent over contested squares. Each side has 18 fantasy creatures to deploy on a 9x9 checkerboard, from lowly knights and goblins to the powerful wizard and sorceress. Your goal is to either eliminate the opposing faction's units or to maintain control over five "power point" squares. When two creatures meet on the same space, a real-time battle ensues on a separate screen, with players directly controlling their character. Each square's color determines which unit, if any, receives a health advantage in combat.

  • Each side features eight distinct unit types, from archers and unicorns to banshees and trolls

  • Take advantage of each unit's strengths and weaknesses to conquer the board

  • Cast powerful spells as the wizard or sorceress, including the ability to revive a fallen unit

    , For one or two players

    Controls: Gamepad, Gamepad/Joystick, Joystick

  • Box Description

    STRATEGY THAT HURTS
    A chess board is lined with trolls, wizards, knights, and other
    magical beings. Just another strategy game? Don't count on it.
    When you challenge a square held by the enemy, the
    board explodes into a battlefield. Your
    strategic skills on the game
    board will determine your
    fate in battle as you take
    on your opponent in
    a heartpounding
    duel to the death.
    If the Goblin catches air
    with his club, the swift
    sword of the Knight may
    steal a leg or two.
    The Sorceress has no fear
    of the massive, boulder-
    heaving Golem. One of
    her powerful spells could
    quickly send him into the
    next time zone.
    With sixteen different
    characters and an ever-
    changing board, you'll
    never play the same
    game twice.
    • Explosive Battles. Fire an arrow, cast a lightning bolt, or scorch your opponent with
    a massive fire ball.
    • Seven Magic Spells. Imprison the enemy, heal your creatureS wounds, reverse the flow
    of time and more.
    • Summon the Elements. Air, Water, Fire and Earth are all at your command.
    • One or Two-Player Action. Challenge the computer or test your skills against a friend.
