Heroes Origin - ripping off HOMM3?

Postby BB Shockwave » Mar 2 2019, 9:29

I saw an ad with HOMM3 creatures and I was like WTF??? But yeah this online game rather shamelessly ripped off HOMM3 graphics and added some of its own.

In fact, even some of the heroes are ripped off from the old games with Sandro, Crag Hack, Lord Haart... :D

EDIT: Weird, despite the adverts showing HOMM3 designs, the actual game seems to be more like they ripped off HOMMV-VI designs.

If they are from russia, they don't. Sadly it's not the only online game using shamelessly H3 in advertising.

Even the purple sinkhole animation reminds me of an older Ubisoft logo introduction:

It's like they are trolling Ubisoft all the way.

War and Magic
Trials of Heroes: Idle RPG

To mention a few using H3 or Heroes legacy in theirs adverts or gameplay. Most likely all with love from russia. ;)

From time to time my facebook site is flooded with adds for Homm3 "inspired" games. Really they just display slightly altered H3 gameplay, but the actual game/gameplay are far from H3. So yeah, one could probably easily find +50 online/mobile games "stealing" graphic from H3. If nothing else, it's fun to read the comments :D
