    In watching an inept Squake attempt to play this Archon version, I've noticed something common with RTS games: the shooter at the lower end of the screen has a reach advantage over the target above them. This is demonstrated in the video by the Shapeshifter vs Unicorn combat. Another example would be in playing Command-&-Conquer: a GDI Guard Tower would shred a NOD Artillery unit, but when the Artillery piece is positioned south of the GDI Guard Tower, the gun extends just beyond the square the Artillery occupies, giving it an advantage of reach.

    Yes, I am a fan of the original Archon, and I found Squake's demonstration (at the time of this comment) an embarrassment. I've never seen such a poor demonstration of game play.
Say something about Archon Ultra! Did you play it? Do you feel nostalgic about the good old days? Did you like it or hate it? Do you have trouble running this game? Don't be afraid to ask for help (please, read the guide first). And don't forget to be polite.
