Heroes of Might & Magic III HD for iOS and Android review

“Experience or gold?” – Asks politely game and finger invariably drawn to the right icon. As if it was not the sixteen years – the gift that then had to look in the pot-bellied CRT monitor, and now hold in their hands the device smaller in size than the average keyboard. The public, however, was in no hurry positives about the release of the updated “Heroes”. How to justify the claims of players – in this review.

Heroes of Might & Magic III HD

How to play?

Port Heroes of Might & Magic III (with a proud subtitled HD Edition) on mobile platforms – probably the best thing that could have happened at all in remaster, remakes and other reissues. Turn-based strategy, in the late 90’s magically swallowed absolutely all categories of the population in the post-Soviet space – this national unity around a single game was neither before nor after (ok, maybe except for stories with STALKER). Even now, on laptops respected old people can find Heroes 3.5 – than not a sign of a perfect game?


Port, frankly, slightly tarnished halo immaculate original. The first complaint can be read on any forum, or in a branch comments: No generator of random maps, Hot-Seat only three people, 10$ per application, and even DLC (made long before this came up word) are not included.

We would add: mobile “hero” great difficulties with management. Many complain in battle arrows hit double tap – uncomfortable, they say. Uncomfortable, yes. But compared to what perverse methods here it is necessary to turn the card, all questions about the battles fly off immediately. More difficult and display information, such as the army of the enemy – almost certainly do something wrong, and your hero with his sword at the ready to storm ever run guys, where you tried to get info. And if there seven dragons on the benches, and a squadron of phoenixes in the wings? In general, while Heroes III frankly flawed. There are several non-critical but annoying flaws that would soon be corrected.

Others – do not pass by. There’s even enough to explain something. This “Heroes 3” those same on the mobile screen. It is, in spite of the previous paragraph, playable. Do you really anything else need to know?



Standard for reprints list: pulled resolution, redrawn texture, somewhere tweaked animation. Looks, of course, a “retro” style, but very decent – like this now felt religious militants’ 80s. As a result, the picture does not hurt the eyes, and the more foolish to demand from the works of sixteen years ago.



Let’s be honest: Heroes of Might & Magic III – far from ideal reissue. There are flaws, there is a problem in quantities. But, firstly, it’s foolish nonsense and small little things that can not and should not poison the pleasure game. And secondly, many gamers are somehow waiting for a miracle. To us, in general, no one promised.

But looking back on the “Heroes”. Is there something better than thrilled at the heart of the native-click on the icon to start worrying and blushing, the first available card – and the first to take the same swoop glittering chest to the game you will be asked: “Experience or gold?” And the hand, of course, will be pulled to the right icon.



  • ne of the best, the greatest and most important games in history – now available on your tablet!


  • Sometimes crooked management;
  • not really HD Edition, especially for the money;
  • “Armageddon’s Blade” and “Shadow of Death”, obviously, will be sold separately – at the price of an average game on Steam.

Shadowmatic for Ipad review

Of rare beauty and exciting game about how to twirl the wall weird gizmos and enjoy it available on iOS.


In the light of a flashlight – bizarre figure, one or more. On the wall behind it – no less bizarre shadow. The task – to turn the pieces so that the shadows turned out, for example, the silhouette of a teapot. Or an elephant. Or the number “5”. Actually, this exhausts the essence of the game Shadowmatic, but not limited to the game itself: inside – stylish graphics, nice soft music and dozens of mysteries, from which the brain gets up on its hind legs.

How much: only $2.99 in the AppStore

Shadowmatic: the play of light and shadow

Few people know, but on the PS3 has left the game with exactly the same concept. However, for a game Echochrome 2 required controller PS Move, so that wasn’t so popular.

What’s good: Handmade and attention to detail is felt in each pixel of the game, from the animated menu to lovingly traced sets: each set of levels in Shadowmatic – its visual theme.

What is bad: If you have not so good with the imagination and perspective, the game can seriously enrage. Or ruin: glasses, for which you can buy hints are given for passing a level, but you can buy them for real money. In the world of Shadowmatic stupid pays twice.

Result: Puzzle elementary rules, challenging content and unparalleled welcoming atmosphere. You can take her child to brighten up leisure grandmother or go with the head alone.
