According to Matt Barton, the game Telengard, released by Avalon Hill in 1982, influenced the development of Diablo.
At first, Diablo was a turn-based role-playing game, but later in development, also influenced by the previous success of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, they decided to make it a real-time action game. The game was also originally conceived to be made in claymation (much like ClayFighter), but they decided to have a 3D isometric style instead.

Your character has returned from some journey that isn't made clear as to where you have been. The full version has 3 playable characters, each with their own specific skill sets that make certain things easier. The Warrior is the fast sword swinging character with abilities to wear very heavy armors. the Sorcerer may be physically weak, but make up for it in his magic casting speed. The fleetfooted rouge is the most Dexterous but moderate abilities in magic and strength, her skill with bows allows her to fire one very quickly. Who you choose is ultimately up to you, but at it's core, the story is not effected by your character choice. What is effected is what your character can effectively equip. The main baddie is Diablo, the Lord of Destruction. He awaits your arrival in the bowels of hell, 16 layers below the town. but each layer is randomly generated with each playthrough and filled with many other monsters waiting to tear you apart. As far as I have played, I have never gotten the same layout twice. Also the quests available will vary with each playthrough. So expect to play this multiple time to experience every quest.
