King's Bounty: The Legend is an adventure game with tactical turn-based
battles and role-playing elements. In a fairy tale fantasy world of fearless
knights, evil mages, wise kings and beautiful princesses the player controls a
hero. Leading their character through the game world, exploring it, commanding
armies in battle and accomplishing various quests can mean great reward or huge
Gameplay is divided into two major sections: adventure mode and battle mode.
While playing in adventure mode the gamer controls their character in real-time.
With several classes available at the start of a new game, the player moves
through the adventure map seeking various treasures, fighting monsters and
accomplishing quests tasked to him by the local stewards. Once in battle mode
the gamer assumes the role of a war chief, leading his troops in tactical
turn-based combat. Battles take place on land or sea, in dungeons or castles or
even in some items! The hero himself doesn't participate in the combat, but can
assist his troops by casting spells or summoning different creatures.
