Venture into the bowels of hell itself to save a devastated town from a demonic threat in Blizzard's Diablo. Inspired by such early computer titles as Rogue and NetHack, Diablo is an action RPG with randomly generated dungeons, items, and monsters. Choose from a male warrior, female rogue, or a male sorcerer before exploring the dark and decrepit dungeons alone or with up to three friends online. Each fantasy archetype is individually rated in strength, vitality, dexterity, and magic, influencing your character's damage, health, armor class, and mana, respectively. The action is viewed from an isometric perspective as you complete quests and attack skeletons, goat men, gargoyles, and other vile creatures. Defeating enemies will grant you experience points as well as equipment of varying quality to improve your hero.
