The Guardian spell was pretty awesome. I prefer Diablo 1 above all of the others. *However... when I first saw the spawn [demo] release of the game, I played it, thought it was interesting, and decided that I would never buy the full game. I don't remember why this was. Several years later I found it on sale at Walmart, and brought it home——and played it for absurd length of time; lamenting not buying it years before.
