Action Heroes of Might and Magic: A Strategic Quest occurs in a fictional fantasy world enroth on the eponymous continent. Here the struggle for power unfolds between the four rulers: Lord Morglin “Iron Fist” (knight), Queen Lamanda (sorceress), leader Sleyer (barbarian) and the sorcerer Alamar (warlock). In the story campaign consisting of nine missions, the player can play for any of the parties.
The first part of Heroes of Might and Magic laid the foundations of the gameplay for the whole series, the future games of which underwent, for the most part, only evolutionary changes.
In Heroes I, when visiting the Mages Guild, the hero automatically remembers every spell in the Guild, with the number of “charges” equal to the number of one of the four main parameters of the hero — knowledge. Thus, a hero with a knowledge parameter equal to 3 is able to use each spell studied three times, after which the spell will have to be studied again. Spells on the degree of their effectiveness are divided into four levels.
The battlefield in Heroes I is represented by a hexagonal grid of sizes in 5 × 7 hexagons. Each creature in battle has a low, medium, or high speed, allowing it to move 1, 2, or 3 cells per turn, respectively, but the area of movement is limited by natural obstacles on the battlefield (trees, stones, ravines, etc.). The exceptions are creatures that have the ability to fly: for them, the speed parameter only regulates the sequence of the move, while flying creatures move to an arbitrary distance from any point. The battle takes place in rounds, in which the sequence of the progress of the units is determined by the decrease of their speed. If there are several units with the same speed, priority is given to the uppermost unit of the attacking player (his troops are always located on the left edge), then the order of the creatures with equal speed alternates from left to right and from top to bottom.
