When I implemented this for zillions I used this definition:

The Echidna is a royal piece -- if it is captured, you lose the game. It moves and captures one step diagonally, it can move (but not) capture one step up, down, left or right, and it can capture (but not move without capturing or jump) two steps up, down, left or right.

As far as I can recall, the author's family had a copy of Zillions and seemed to think the implementation was correct.
