"Warriors of sword and spell" is a freeware game made in Multimedia Fusion 2.

It is a turn based strategy in the style of first three parts of "Warlords" (combat) (rather older players will remember this game ) and "Heroes of Might and Magic" (adventure map). You can build armies, improve castles, level-up commanders, explore adventure map, gather resources, fight with monsters and visit interesting places searching for hidden treasures.

Hordes of creatures invades Kingdom's lands. Kingdom and all human race is in great danger! You have to find out who and why attacked your homeland. And then... then find a way to destroy it. You will know whole interesting story by walking through big campaign (10 missions), and by reading briefings kept in novel style. You will read them as a book, and you will want to know what is on the next page. To know this, you will have to win the missions. Just one more turn... just one more goblin...


Game features:
- 10 mission campaign in single player mode
- hotseat multiplayer mode (6 maps)
- 2 playable races
- 8 units for each race
- 23 enemies to fight against in single player and 31 in multiplayer mode
- 8 different commanders for each race
- 9 unique commander skills to improve while level-up
- 12 spells to cast
- good AI
- battles in classic "Warlords" style

Excellent work
There's a lot of depth and detail, and it's genuinely fun to play (and yes, very reminiscent of HoM&M).
It's obviously coded in quite a simplistic manner, which I actually think was a really good decision, as games this "epic" rarely get finished unless you cut a few corners here and there.
It's not perfect - the interface isn't all that clear (it could really use a detailed instruction file, as the tutorial doesn't cover many of the features in the game), and all the different numbers are a bit overwhelming. Still, overall I'd say it's worthy of 4 1/2 stars.

Working my way through the campaign now...EXCELLENT WORK! Totally captures the feeling you were going for.

Thank you all for your comments. I really hope you enjoy playing this game.

I updated download link with version 1.16. It contains additional pictures between campaign missions, and new end campaign victory screen. I think they greatly increase atmosphere in the game. To update installed game, you have to unistall it and install new version. Your save games and campaign progress will be kept.

I came across a problem that you may not have noticed. This game is HUGE, and I'm sure it would be difficult to catch every combination easily prior to posting the game for download. But here's a combination of units that I think breaks the game.

In the later levels, Paladins can be in combat with goblin shamans. The result is a unit that constantly heals itself of damage facing off with a unit that can lower its enemy's attack power to 1. So once it is hit with enough swarm spells, the Paladin can't hit the shaman, and it won't die because the Heal power kicks in automatically after the Paladin becomes wounded.

Can you think of any way to fix this?

This game is GREAT, by the way. If you're a fan of old-skool tactical strategy games, this is the best thing going at the moment.

Yep, you are right with this paladin. However, you may always use some spells to beat goblin shaman, use other commanders skills, or other troops (you may use tactics skill). There is no universal tactic for whole game, for every mission, or for every combat.

I think, that "paladin issue" can be solved like this: every use of heal spell, decrease special ability by 5 points - so he wouldn't heal for whole eternity. I'm sure that there are few other such combinations. What I'm aware of, is combat between two ghosts in hot-seat mode - it can take some time to finish it But, that is why you have spells and commander skills .

As it is not serious problem (at least in my opinion) I will hold on with possibly next version until more serious bugs/problems will be found. If you find any more, please let me know (but I hope you will not )

BTW, I'm very happy that you like this game.

Very good game, thought waiting for ai to finish his turn takes really long.
