That is awesome!!! I've played HOMM since the first one on disks and have played through all 6 of them and most of the expansions over the years. Those are games where as long as there wasn't a day/week limit to the level I would just wait forever and go around collecting my troops and amass a GIGANTIC GOD ARMY and go fight the last guy and one shot all of his troops. I know it's a huge waste of time but it was so gratifying to do on some levels. This is great news indeed for me. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a new HOMM.

Nice find bro,

EDIT: So after this piqued my interest I snooped around and lookie lookie I found they are making a HOMM7!!!!!!!
Finally!!! Now if this is old news to you'll WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME SOONER

If we could harvest human stupidity to run our electricity, and our cars, the world would see a new era of clean, renewable energy. That's an amazing resource we're wasting.

Holy cow!!! Now this is news!!! Was waiting for the classics HOMM to come on iOS... from the beginning of iOS... I have play hours and hours through the years all the versions!!!

I am curious about the pricing because Ubisoft have to release a paid game for long time on iOS.
Also i am curious if the map editor would be on the iOS version... Would be super dooper awesome!

HoMM 3 looks to be iPad/Tablet only but I wonder with the new iPhone 6 and 6S if they can finagle it?

Also the HoMM 7 looks amazing as well and I can't wait for that next year. Will be pre-ordering it for sure.

Dude...these games are so unbelievably awesome. I remember playing the first 2 and they blew me away. The turn based, town building, resource gathering, army building, incremental progression and battlefield combat is so much fun. There are so many gamers out there who have never played a game in the series. Had so much fun taking turns on the pc with these games til 5AM with friends.

I didnt even play 3 and thats supposed to be the best one!

Oh hell yeah 3 was the HoMM on an extreme new level for it's time in the series. I think my favorite was 5 then 3. I'm looking forward to HoMM 7 coming next year for the PC. Already told my wife to be prepared to get me the collectors edition for that gem.

Guess I'm stuck with the knock offs like Palm Kingdoms until they bring it to the iPhone like everybody else...
