Archon: The Light and the Dark is Battle Chess to the extreme. Instead of just capturing pieces like a wimp, upon confrontation, the two pieces are placed in a 'combat arena' in which they must fight to the death. To win, you either have to defeat all of your opponents pieces or hold all five Magic Squares at one time. The author, Twisted Eye, chooses the latter to complete the game in 1:15.51.
