Diablo-esque game?

Just saw te Infinity blade dungeons gameplay...and with Diablo 3, was trying to remember any good game that follows the exloration of dungeons similar to Diablo.
Any option better than a Dungeon Hunter from Gameloft?

don't know it would help but Appjudgment shows top 3 games in iOS that are similar to Diablo 3 experience.

1. Dungeon Hunter 3

2. Devil Dark

3. Castle Master 3D (his favorite I guess)

Castle Master 3D thread is here if you are interested... check it out!

Underworlds by Pixel Mine is quite Diablo-like.

Definitely this. Underworlds was awesome, but both chapters only last about 2 hours together. The 3rd chapter never quite made it. Was great when it first came out over two years ago. It's a bit outdated now though. Not too many good dungeon crawlers on the iOS. Can't even name half a dozen really. If my MacBook Pro can run D3, Torchlight, etc, you can run those games on your PC for sure. Stick with those. There are enough good ones one the PS3/360 as well.

This guy's on drugs. Devil Dark, maybe close as far as the hack n' slash variety goes. But it's not the top-down Diablo style if that's what you're looking for.

DH3 is ridiculous, but the first two DHs are comparable to Diablo.

And Castle Master 3D? I hadn't heard of it until I read it here. Downloaded it and it's NOTHING like Diablo. It's more of a castle/empire building sim with some battles in between that I frankly didn't find enjoyable enough to work through the sim parts of the game. (Others may like that kind of thing, though)

Thanks for bringing back up Underworlds. I had downloaded it long ago and don't think I ever played through it all. After giving it another whirl today, think I'm going to now. I need a Diablo-style iOS fix.

I haven't played the iOS port, but I'd definately put The Bard's Tale on a list of Diablo type games. I got it on sale, but need to play through some things to make room for its massive size.

Funny thing, I played The Bard's Tale back on my old Xbox and noticed when you start Underworlds one of the first missions -- like BT if I remember -- is going down into a cellar and killing rats. Just thought that was a too odd of a coincidence...maybe playing a bit of homage to it?

Wanted to add that Infinity Blade: Dungeons looks incredible and definately could fill a void in having a great Diablo-style hack n' slash on the iOS.

A lot of computer rpgs start out like that. Go to the cellar, kill some rats. Even Elder Scrolls Oblivion had a variation on it in one of its side quest.

It's become an old joke of sorts because it's so common to see that as a first quest.
