It's an action-rpg. At the beginning, you choose your character, warrior, sorceror or rogue. These characters can use different weapons, spells and equipment. The game starts in a town, where you can buy new stuff for your hero / heroine. You also get certain quests from the inhabitants there. Now you continue your way down to one of the 16 randomly created dungeon levels. There are loads of monsters to kill, after you have gained a certain number of experience points you can upgrade your skills. You find money which you can use to buy new weapons or scrolls or book etc. in town. The game features a great range of monsters, from simple skeletons to Diablo himself.
Hellfire is an add-on to the action RPG Diablo.
It adds two new dungeons to the game: the Demon Crypt and the Festering Nest, both crawling with all-new creatures. The Nest has the appearance of an insect hive and is populated with insectoid monsters and a boss creature called the Defiler. The Crypt is controlled by the demon Na-Krul, a former lieutenant of Diablo who turned on his master and now works on his own.
To master the challenges of the new dungeons, a new character class is available: the Monk can use staff weapons to attack several enemies at the same time and also is an expert at unarmed combat as well as an able spellcaster.
Also added are new spells, items and weapons. New magical items include oils (once applied, they add magical effects to weapons) and runes (they can be set on the ground as booby traps, unleashing magical effects on unsuspecting monsters).
