    I'm looking for a game for the DS that is a hack 'n slash your way through legions of monsters to find treasure type of game, like Diablo. Any suggestions?

    Soma Bringer, definetly. That game constantly reminded me of Diablo. In fact id call it an almost clone [​IMG]

    Seriously, it has acts, the town portals act the same, way points etc

    Never thought of it like that but yeah you're right!

    Also the homebrew Powder.

    Castlevania doesn't seem like a dungeon crawler, but i may be wrong. [​IMG]

    I suggest you look at the roguelikes.
    Commercial offerings include
    Izuna 1 and 2
    Dungeon Explorer
    Scurge: Hive although this is more of a platformer.
    Lunar Knights- not quite a roguelike but legions o' monsters none the less.
    Contact- not so much legions but interesting and heading for what you want.
    Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer

    Homebrew are probably better
    POWDER arguably leads the way. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=3846
    Anguna http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=3904
    HackDS: http://www.pdroms.de/files/1887/
    Nethack has a port somewhere.
    Another link

    And it is not like it at all but for me it brought back the same feelings. Meteora: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=987

    Children of Mana and Dungeon Explorer would be my recommendations.

    Izuna and Izuna 2 are decent, but I wouldn't call them hack n' slash.

    Children of Mana is the title that first jumps out at me when you ask for a hack 'n slash crawler.

    Sorry for the delayed response. I've started playing through Soma Bringer and its exactly what i'm looking for. [​IMG]

    I just can't wait to get my brothers, who are both Diablo junkies as well, an Acekard with Soma Bringer on it so we can sit and mow through monsters together. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. [​IMG]
