Strategy 29 January 2015
A remastered edition of one of the most well-received installments of the legendary Heroes of Might & Magic series, created for the 15th anniversary of the game's original release and the 20th anniversary of the franchise.

The contents of the HD edition are the same as the base game (no expansions included) and consist of 7 story campaigns (about 50 maps in total), a skirmish mode and a functional editor. Compared to the original, the key changes are the upgraded wide-screen-compatible HD visuals. The graphics are now sharper and more clear-cut, which is the result of reprogramming over 25,000 elements and models. The multiplayer mode has also been upgraded, both in the local “hotseat” mode and the online one. Also, for the first time ever, a version for mobile devices was created.
A mobile role-playing game heavily-inspired by the Pokemon series. The game is set in a fantasy land, combining modern reality with science-fiction elements.

In Nexomon, you traverse a world divided into 10 regions, visit shops, talk to NPCs, and complete a variety of quests. Like in the Pokemon series, an important factor is catching the defeated creatures, which join your collection. The battles are turn-based, and in combat you mostly choose the right attacks against the opponents and activate various special items. Apart from the multiplayer mode, the game also features a story campaign with many side quests.
