[edit] Description

DiabloRL is a relatively simple Roguelike that attempts to present the game Diablo by Blizzard as a Roguelike: without graphics, turn based, and with perma-death, but otherwise using the same game mechanics. Many consider it to be a coffeebreak roguelike. The game mimics Diablo's rules to the letter (except for realtime).

This particular remake may be significant to some, because many flame wars have been fought on whether Diablo is a roguelike or not. Well, DiabloRL surely is.

Due to the 7 day time constraint of the contest, the game offers content similar to Diablo's pre-release demo — there is only the "Warrior" class, there are only 4 big levels to explore, and the game ends when you kill the Butcher.

Version 0.4.5 added support for many missing features, including magic items, spells and the two missing classes. Apart from that quests were added, and DiabloRL now perfectly mimics Diablo's 4 first levels.

Current version: 0.5 added Catacombs and Caves levels (currently without quests), highscores, fast traveling to known locations and a lot of fixes and improvements.

[edit] Versions and platforms

Written in Free Pascal, DiabloRL binaries are as yet only available for Windows. The game compiles and runs under Linux, yet there are still some fixes needed to be made before a binary release. The author, Kornel Kisielewicz, awaits feedback.
