Newbie with HOMM1 questions....

I bought the Heroes of Might and Magic series the other day and today was the first chance I have had to actually devote some serious time to the first one (HOMM1). I am still at the beginning and it's very intriguing, I think I have the game mechanics down but when I get to that fight with the gargoyles north of the starting castle, I keep having my butt handed to me (i.e. I lose that battle each time I have tried). I have explored a few strategies but have had minimal success. Can anyone offer a bit of advice to help me past this part of the game? Thanks so much!

Without actually mentioning a map, it's hard to provide good feedback .

But generally speaking, if a fight is too hard at some point, just leave it be for a while, while you're accumulating a bigger army. Get back to it somewhat later and kill them then.

Newbie with HOMM1 questions.....

First, thanks so much for replying to my initial question. I am sorry about not providing a map description or other identifying information. I am talking about the first campaign map in the first Heroes of Might and Magic game. The combat I am referring to is just north of the first castle in the game. The combat consists of 5 or 6 flying creatures that look like gargoyles. They have been tearing through my army before I can inflict any damage on them. But I will take your advice and explore the map a bit before trying again. I am a little ashamed to be having such of a time with one of the first battles I have come across in this game.

It's just your first step in a much larger world - and you're welcome to it!

Hopefully, you'll feel that same fever that most of us here have and simply have to keep playing the game, regardless of which version of the game you're interested in most!

In terms of challenge/difficulty, how would you game vets out there compare the original HOMM to later games, particularly II and III?

My recollection (it's been a while since I played the original) is that while it may be less sophisticated in many ways than later entries in the series, it's by no means easy to beat.
