Archon - Atari 5200



The Light and the Dark

A magical medieval playing field, rendered on the landscape of an overgrown chessboard, looms before you. Within this mystical area are phoenixes, golems, and wizards. Like magical beings, their powers change as they move from square to square. When two opponents meet, the board explodes into a battlefield.

Your pieces use their awesome powers to fight banshees, goblins, and sorceresses. They cast spells and missiles; they pummel, pierce, and throw flames. They even take on each other's shapes and characteristics. You will need all your skill, dexterity, and wisdom to control and guide your side.

Your magic rises and ebbs with the board's luminosity cycle. As the light changes, so does your power. You must race against time and use your strength effectively.

Archon is a contest of action and strategy between opposing forces wrought from myth and legend. The Light Side and Dark Side are equal in force, balanced in strength. Thought they are not identical, their goals are the same. Each side exists to conquer, by eliminating all of the opposing pieces or controlling the five power points.

Includes cartridge only, no manual or box is included.

Archon for the Atari 5200 looks and plays identically to both the XE cartridge and 400/800 disk versions. That is a GOOD thing. If you have a WICO 5200 stick, or a tight Atari controller in good repair, control (to me) was actually BETTER than on my 800/800XL machines. This cart is worth your money for the Atari 5200.
