I played the demo before. It's pretty fun. I never played the newer Heroes of Might and Magic, but, if you enjoyed HoMM 1 and 2 (did I play 3? Don't remember) this should be up your alley.

I am a fan, it's an amazingly faithful reproduction of Heroes of Might and Magic 2 for iOS. Palm Kingdoms 2, non-deluxe, is free to download and try. If you've never played HOMM2 it's a world exploration/conquest game with resource collection / army management. Palm Kingdoms 2 is a fun game.

One thing about Palm Kingdoms is that there are a ton of "expansion" IAP maps. I purchased all of them but it might turn some people off. There's no strong plot and PK2 plays sort of like a digital board game (turn based, different "players"/fractions, focus on exploring the board).

The developer is making Palm Kingdoms 3 so there's more to come.

If you're into turn-based strategy at all, you want this. At a single dollar, you can't afford not to buy it. ^_^

Is it normal that game orientation is on wrong side when turned into landscape? It goes to proper landscape mode only when I start campaign, before that in menus it's upside down of what landscape should be.
Very good game in old Heroes style , a lot of different encounters and enemies, but also has so many additional campaigns and maps as IAPs, way over my head in number of IAPs here.

As others have said - if you're a fan of the early Heroes of Might & Magic, this is basically HoMM2 for iOS.

Highly recommended for turn based strategy fans!
