Default Any DOS RPG similair to Diablo?

Not that I'm a Diablo fan (haven't played much of it), but I want something similair to play. An RPG with loads of action.... Preferably something that's available on this site.
Is there anything similair at all?

As for games similar to Diablo... "Roguelike" is what you're looking for. Might want to check Castle of the Winds (for windows, but was released as public domain).

Thanks, but are any of those actually for DOS?

Agreed. The Fifth Horseman, you should totally read up on it.

You could try Arcanum. That one's for Windows, though.

...I actually got that game just yesterday (along with Baldur's Gate II, which is much better IMO). xD

What about Ancient Evil, which is on the site? Not sure if it's for DOS. I tried it once and it was a killfest (didn't like it).

Ancient Evil is a no go!

I did have my eyes on it before creating this thread, btw. Thanks, anyway.
