About SpellForce: Heroes & Magic
SpellForce: Heroes & Magic is a turn-based strategy game with deep RPG mechanics, set in the fantasy world of EO. The player controls one of three races, either Humans, Orcs or Dark Elves. The game is separated in two layers: the strategic, empire-building map, where your heroes and armies travel around, gather resources, fight monsters or enemy troops and conquer mines, farms or entire cities. When two armies meet on the battlefield, the game switches to a simultaneously turn-based tactics mode, where the player becomes a general and command his units directly. SpellForce: Heroes & Magic offers over 45 different units, among them are Footmen, Knights, Archers, Catapults, Orc Shamans, Dark Elf Sorceresses and many more, each with their unique strengths and weaknesses and some with special abilities. Maneuvering on hexagons, the aim is to take down the enemy without suffering too much casualties, as your units gain XP, level up and become stronger with each fight they win. Each hero and unit can gather and equip different gear and chose new abilities from unique skill trees. While upgrading and maintaining your armies, you also have to overlook your duties as a Lord of your ever-growing empire: Develop your cities, make sure the flow of ressources rises and also extend your territory.
