Heroes 3 on Mobile Devices: 4 Steps Tutorial

The whole process is really straightforward:

  1. Install ExaGear Strategies app from Play Store
  2. Install Heroes 3 on your PC
  3. Copy the game folder to your mobile device
  4. Launch ExaGear Strategies and start the game

That simple. And, for your convenience, let’s take a closer look at this.

Install ExaGear Strategies

Simply follow the link and install ExaGear Strategies on your Android device. If you can’t follow the link right now, just type “ExaGear Strategies” in the search section of Play Market when you are ready.

Get it on Google Play

Install Heroes 3 on your PC

This step is a little bit more complicated. The best way that is approved and recommended is to purchase the game file officially on Just follow this link to do that. You can also get the game somewhere else, but the getting it from GOG is the way that we have already tested and guaranty the result.

To transfer the game to a mobile device you should first install it on our PC. After you get the game on GOG, you should receive the two install files: the setup file and a special patch. Just launch the setup file first and as soon as the installation is complete, run the patch. After the patch file is installed as well, you should check if the game is running on your pc by launching it for the first time. If everything is OK, move on to the next step.

Transfer and Run the Game on your Mobile Device

While installation, the game folder should be created in “Program Files (x86)” folder on your main local disk (usually marked as “C”). The game folder title should be “Heroes of Might and Magic 3” or alike. Another option is when a special “GOG Games” folder is created right on your local disk, so the path in this case is C/GOG Games (see the screenshot):

Problems Solving

Although there are very few issues that occure during our tests, we still are aware of them and can offer the following sollutions:

  • In case you face an error while playing music, it may cause the game to freeze. As workaround music is turned off in the default configuration of the emulator.
  • We strongly recommend not to run localized versions under the emulator as they were not tested
