Best Diablo-style hack-n-slash

Looking for a good Diablo-style game with more than just weapon based hack-n-slash (ie., spells, bosses, etc)....besides the Dungeon Hunter series. Any suggestions? Keep mind I only have an iPod
Touch 2G.

I'm looking for similar games too. Any game would do though (iPhone 4).

@awp69
What games do you have? Are there any games that are similar to what you're looking for (besides DH)?

Solomon's Boneyard is pretty good imo.

Dink Smallwood is on my list but I haven't tried it yet.

Underworlds is really good if you never bought that. It was pretty big around TA back then during its time. Solomon's Keep is a lot better than Solomon's Boneyard by the way.

Solomon's Keep is a dual stick shooter. I wouldn't call it diablo-like, or if so then only marginally.

Secret of Mana doesn't have the same skill building like Diablo, but it has some good hack n slash action.

Meh, that's like saying every KRPG on the iOS would count. I'd say something like Zenonia is a lot more similar to Diablo than Secret of Mana.

Have had both Dungeon Hunters and both of the Solomon's series. Zenoia is good but really has too many fetch this, fetch that tasks and dialog to be considered Diablo like. Really want more if a top down dungeon crawler like the good old days, but with modern graphics/effects. (not asking too much am I )

Underworlds looks very solid (for a hack 'n slash). Trying lite now.

I would caution that the game isn't going to set the world on fire once you hit chapter two. I got bored by the level design, though perhaps I ought give it another chance.
