I recently rediscovered an old classic. Don't worry, I won't bother you with a negative Diablo 3 review or how D1 was the best game ever. I'm talking about a "mod" of the original Diablo that makes it much, much complete, harder, exciting and intense. Did I say it was harder? It is very hard compared to the original, but as stated on the site, it's not impossible, it's just harder than most other games and the harder Diablo mod out there.
This is how the author describes Diablo: The Hell.
The hallmark of The Hell is an unbelievably serious approach to development. First and foremost, it is concentrated on getting rid of all the initial bugs of Diablo (duping, friendly fire, shared experience, etc.). It also raises challenge considerably, gives much more variety (monsters, items, spells, boss monsters, unique items, item-, monster & environment colors), improves overall difficulty balance of the game, improves, expands and adds new monster AI, introduces new character animations, increases replay value and gives full support for Multiplayer experience.I'll put it bluntly: not all Diablo veterans will be able to beat the game on Doom mode. It is the HARDEST Diablo mod ever!Lots of devoted players also believe that it's the best Diablo mod.There are quite a number of things you should know before you start playing. Check the 'Guide' section for this info. If you've got questions, ask them on TH forum.Bookmark this site to stay in touch, and visit our forum. You will find a lot of interesting facts there, both about Diablo (Hellfire) and about the mod.By the moment I started creating The Hell, I had been playing Diablo: Hellfire for 10 years. And this mod represents all that I ever wanted from this game. This is Diablo's best of the best. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the game or by its visual similarity with Hellfire. There is more than meets the eye. It's an absolutely new & improved game under the old mask...
If you are a Diablo 1 fan, you have to try this baby at least once and explore the first levels in order to see how challenging and complete the new experience is.
Here is the game's description, as shown above:
