Hi Simoneer.

To get back to your question there IS a similiar RPG-HacknSlay-whatever-Game to Diablo:

The Summoning by SSI and Event Horizon is nearly a prequel to Diablo according to the gameplay. The only difference is the attack mode. In Diablo you klick on the monsters and in The Summoning you click your attack-icon or push the 1 or 4 key on your keyboard. You can play it completely with mouse or keybord. A combination is good...

There are a lot more riddles than in Diablo most of them are puzzle- (right object in right hole), lever and bottom plate riddles(press right plate and hit correct lever). And because of that you have to carry tons of objects with you. This sometimes gets a bit annoying.

But nevertheless it's a great game and I loved it. When Diablo came out I was suprised that these game equals themselves so much (except the graphics) but even german gaming magazines had seen many similarities between these two classics.

Oh yes.. the link ---> summoning, the

.... one tip if you want to play it: On Character-Creation-Screen, Agility is your most important attribute. Give it a high value otherwise the you walk extremly slow!

Well, I do not know whether this has been suggested or not (I am too lazy to check the previous pages), but if you find The Summoning to your liking, then you will almost definitely like Veil of Darkness.

Same company, although this game is more on the horror than fantasy side.

Yeah - damn right. Forget to mention this game. Well "The summoning" has a fantasy/medieval unlike to "Veil of Darkness" which takes place in Transylvania (I think) and is more into the vampire stuff... but a great game though with a deep atmosphere.
