Heroes of Might and Magic III is a turn-based strategic war game, set up in a classical role-playing game Environment. It involves capturing and developing towns, gathering resources, assembling armies and sending them into combat. Each town has a theme and can only raise the type of creatures appropriate to that theme. The resources (gold, wood, ore, gems, crystal, mercury, and sulfur) can be found mostly in mines and are gathered once a day. They are used to build new buildings in your towns, to improve existing buildings, to buy armies, etc. Each army is led by a hero and consists of up to seven stacks of creatures raised in towns or recruited in countryside. The armies are sent into tactical combat, which can occur either in countryside or in towns. If the attacker captures the town, the winner can recruit the creatures raised in that town afterwards. Each game scenario (regular or campaign style) has its own objective which can vary from capturing a specific castle, defeating a specific hero or monster, gathering gold, or finding the Holy Grail (just to name a few). The game bears some similarity to Heroes of Might and Magic II, but it has been vastly re-vamped. HEROES III is set in the same world as HEROES II and MM6 (Might and Magic 6) and continues the story-line of those two games. It is set in another country (Erathia), but there will be some significant differences between HEROES III and HEROES II. Features page contains a detailed list of game features and changes from

I own all Homm titles except the last installment ( 6 ). My all time favorites are Homm 2, 3 and 5. I have the greatest memmories with Homm 2 and the 4 maps Beltway, Broken Alliance, Seven Lakes and Full House. I liked the camapaigns a lot in Homm 3 and 5 well 5 i like because it is 5. Anyway i do not care for graphix cause all of them are greate 2D and 3D.

Nice that i found this remake of the map beltway. Now to find Broken allaince (Seven Lakes i have it) - Full House working on a remake :D

Any success with the maps? They could come in handy very much in terms of The Succession Wars Mod for HMMIII, which is currently featured on ModDB.

This game was released when there were no kids to scream for fancy graphics and arcade shooters. This game was all we needed back then. Oh, the memories <3

Sorry man, I have to give it to Heroes 5. Great graphics meets great gameplay. The only flaw in that game is the waiting time between turns.

Heroes III is amazing, don't get me wrong. But it gets boring after a while since the graphics and gameplay are repetitive.

Welp, they are going pretty nice, version .59 is in development. There'll be a brand new castle, new creatures and twise more blackjack and hookers than in previous versions.
There are also Phoenix mod (DEAD) and Horn of Abyss (AWESOME).
