fheroes2: implementation of classic game Heroes of Might and Magic II.
Heroes of Might and Magic II is a classic fantasy turn-based
strategy/role-playing game which takes place in the land of Enroth,
a place of magic.
There are a multitude of creature types, from griffins to rocs,
golems to pikemen, unicorns to hydras, and four different dragons.
Each castle type has six different creatures, from the weak
to the strong. There are six castle types, each corresponding to
a hero class: Knight, Sorceress, Wizard (Good side), Barbarian,
Necromancer and Warlock (Evil side). There are also six different
types of neutral creatures you can recruit in special structures
scattered about the maps.
Original game files from CD are needed to play this game.
