Archon (a game for 8-bit personal / home computers released in the US in 1983) is one of THE defining games of the 1980s.

The Archon app will be offered as an in-app purchase from within the Elite Collection app. (The in-app will be priced at £1.49/1.59/US$1.99 and it may include one or more other 8-bit games).

The Archon app is also available in this stand-alone form. It does not include any other 8-bit games but it may include an infinite lives version.

The Archon app is the near-100% original 8-bit game, as written by Jon Freeman and published by Electronic Arts in 1983 and is brought to you - as an officially licenced product - utilizing our Elite Collection technology.

Featuring:
- portrait and landscape play / display modes
- iDaptive (user-definable, game-specific joystick, keypad & canvass) Controls
- (Google: "Tiny URL 22qh8hl") for more info
- auto save, on exiting the game
- authentic '8-Bit' sound
- iCade compatible

This presentation with the lack of screenshots seems to be rather shady...
