Heroes of Might and Magic II is visually very similar to the game predecessor , but it has a number of fundamental differences in the gameplay.
Heroes and Cities
As in Heroes of Might and Magic I, in Heroes II, the game factions are defined by the classes of heroes and the corresponding types of cities. In addition to the already existing classes of heroes from the first part – Knight , Barbarian , Sorceress and Warlock – two new classes appeared in Heroes II : the Magician and the Necromancer were added.
In Heroes II, the magic system was significantly changed . In the first part of the series, the main parameter knowledge meant the maximum number of applications for one spell: for example, a hero with knowledge equal to 4 could conjure each of his spells no more than four times. In Heroes II, this system was replaced by a system of points of magic or mana. In this case, the hero learns the spell forever, but each of his use is worth a certain number of points of magic. The amount of mana that a hero has is usually determined by the number of his knowledgemultiplied by 10. For example, if the hero’s knowledge is 3, then initially he has 30 points of magic. After the hero has cast a spell that costs 8 points, he will have 22 of them. Spell points are usually restored one by one per day, but with some aspects of the gameplay this process can be accelerated.
