Diablo is one of the most well recognized titles of the game world. It is one of the founding pillars to the action adventure genre of game titles way back in the 90s.
The game is a third person action adventure, hack and slash video game and it is a well advanced version of the previously celebrated NES titles.
It gives a lot of freedom and choices when it comes to move around in a fantasy world full of magic and mystery.
The setting of the game sees the protagonist, an unnamed warrior of the class you would choose, entering Tristram where a legendary hell lord, Diablo has taken over the life.
The labyrinth under the cathedral in the village scours down to the deepest pits of earth and then ultimately to the hell itself.
Where the hero must fight to redeem the humanity and bind the curse of the hell lord.
The game is point and click, action adventure, hack n slash game, with an over the top camera angle taking in the whole place in player’s view at once for the most adventurous effects.
You then select to create a player character from three available classes, the warriors, the rogues and the mages, where warriors are the most physically capable and great at attacking at close range and sustaining high amounts of attacks themselves.
The rogues are slightly less powerful but heavily dexterous at disarming traps and very skilled with long ranged weapons.
And the mages, they are the magic people, they do magic attacks and although they are the most frail but they do the most damage through the magic.
Then there are specific colored items all around the place white colored normal items, blue colored magic items and gold colored special items, all of them are used in special concoctions to make even stronger potions and objects.
The game was the first to initiate the setting what we now love so much in games like Skyrim and Dark Souls.
