How does this game differ from HOMM?

  • Troops have a maximum stack size.
  • As towns and settlements grow, they expand with building sites on the adventure map. You’ll have to make choices with your build sites, you can build as many buildings of the same type as you want but there are a limited number of build sites.
  • The magic system is very different, where troops bring “Essence” which fuels spells, so picking troops is both about their stats but also about what Essence they bring.
  • The campaign is fairly ambitious with cut scenes and a specific song for each campaign.
  • In combat, ranged units can move and shoot, but at a penalty.
  • Battlefield has terrain like highground which boost stats of occupying units.
  • Units in battle can’t wait but instead have different abilities depending on the unit. Of which one is actually “wait”.
