Heroes of Might and Magic II

Heroes of Might and Magic II is a turn-based strategy video game developed by New World Computing and published in 1996 by the 3DO Company. The game is the second installment of the Heroes of Might and Magic series. The game falls under the genre of turn-based strategy game.

Features

Heroes of Might and Magic II has several new features that has been programmed in it. First among them is the ability for heroes to gain special abilities. Each hero can possess up to eight different secondary skills out of fourteen available. Once gained, a skill can be developed from Basic to Advanced and Expert levels. Besides that, the magic system was changed in Heroes II. Heroes II uses a magic point system that allows the player to apportion spell use as needed, while the varying point cost of different spells maintains balance. Another major feature introduced in Heroes II is the ability to upgrade units, granting them improved statistics and, in some cases, important abilities. Apart from that, Heroes of Might and Magic II have six different alignments; Knights, Sorceress and Wizards which falls under the good category, while the Barbarian, Necromancer, and Warlock falls under the evil category. The story in the game follows the canonical ending of Heroes I results in Lord Morglin Ironfist's victory. In the following years, he has successfully unified the continent of Enroth and secured his rule as king. Upon the king's death, his two sons, Archibald and Roland, vie for the crown. Archibald orchestrates a series of events that lead to Roland's exile. Archibald is then declared the new king, while Roland organizes a resistance. Each alignment is represented by one of the game's two campaigns. Archibald's campaign features the three evil town alignments, while Roland's campaign features the three good town alignments.
