Heroes of Might and Magic III develops the ideas embodied in the first and second parts of the series. The essence of the game remains unchanged: the player controls the characters leading the army of mythical creatures into battle. The main action of the game takes place on a strategic adventure map , on which heroes move, capturing cities and visiting all sorts of buildings on the map. Cities are an important part of the game: the player can develop them, erecting various structures in them that give access to more powerful creatures, magic spells and other combat advantages; cities are also sources of income. Build new cities in Heroes IIIit is impossible, you can only capture those that are already on the map. The game is a turn-based strategy , which means that the time in it is discrete: its main unit is the course , also called the day . In one game day, a player can perform any available actions, limited only by his needs and power reserve of his characters (or by a time limit, if such has been set before the start of the game). On the day, you can build one building in each of the cities belonging to the player. When the hero enters the battle, the game switches to the battle screen , remotely resembling chess : two armies are located on opposite sides of the screen, and the groups of creatures, alternately making a move, must destroy the enemy troops.
Many parts of the adventure map are usually occupied by mountains and forests impassable for heroes, so the game world is usually a kind of branched maze, movements in which are not always linearly predictable: you can get to some territories only by following a difficult or not obvious path, conceived by the author of the map . In the narrow aisles of the map it is possible to block the hero’s path by other heroes, which can be used to impose battle on opponents. The game card can be divided into two levels – surface and underground, to move between which in the game there are special gates of the underworld. The underworld is most often referred to as a cave in a solid rock or a complex network of tunnels connected to the surface in several places, which gives additional tactical advantages when fighting opponents. At the beginning of the game the entire map is hidden unexplored territory; the same open area remains visible until the end of the game.
There are seven kinds of resources in Heroes of Might and Magic III . Gold is the main resource required for a wide variety of activities, and wood and ore are used for most buildings in cities . Mercury , sulfur , crystals and gems are especially valuable resources required for special buildings and for hiring high-level creatures.
The main source of gold are the cities that the player controls: each city brings a certain amount of gold every day, depending on its level of development. Special buildings in cities can bring other types of resources. On the adventure map, resources can most often be obtained with the help of mines.. The player who captured the mine with the help of the hero receives a fixed amount of a certain type of resources per day. There are also numerous irregular sources of resources. Often, resources can be found scattered around the map in groups that heroes collect. They can serve as a reward for performing a specific task on the map or can be obtained from periodically updated sources, for example, a water mill. Resources also bring some artifacts and heroes with certain skills. In any city you can build a marketto exchange some resources for others. As a rule, one Market does not bring benefits, but if one builds Markets in a large number of existing cities, then the exchange rate will become more acceptable. On the adventure map you can meet the Market with constantly good offers.
