Torchlight is an Action-RPG developed by Runic Games in 2009. The gameplay is akin to Diablo and other semi-random dungeon crawlers. You reside in the town of Torchlight and venture into a series of randomized dungeons to slay monsters, find loot, and gear out your characters. Take control of one of the three classes (Destroyer, Alchemist, or Vanquisher) and complete quests to defeat increasingly difficult monsters.

Torchlight is a small town set in the almost-Diablo action-RPG world in Runic Games' new adventure. Running on a standard formula that Diablo started, and with a price tag of $20, is it worth your time and money? It's up to you to decide for yourself, but we have a review available to help you make up your mind.
The early stages of Torchlight aren't all that difficult, but the endgame can get quite challenging. Whichever class you play, some tips will remain the same. If you are stuck on the Molten Prison, the Black Palace, or the Shadow Vault, then this guide can help you get past the end of the game. Let us know if you're stuck on an earlier part of the game, perhaps we can help you along there too.
The many randomly generated dungeons in Torchlight offer you a wide selection of loot and equipment, all with varied stat bonuses. Perhaps the most important aspect of character strength is selecting the right pieces of this equipment to keep and deciding which to sell. This Torchlight equipment guide will provide you with tips on what gear is the best for you. Having poor equipment is the fastest way to get yourself killed, after all.
The Vanquisher is a character that lives on the edge. Typically a glass cannon, you're capable of doing immense amounts of damage to your enemies in a very short time. On the other hand, you don't have very high defenses or health, and can die quite easily. Read this guide on all of her skills and decide which tree you'd like to follow to make your Torchlight experience as fun as it can be.
Torchlight doesn't always feel the need to explain itself to you. That said, it comes as no surprise that the Alchemist class is a bit of a mystery. While you might think from the name he uses potions or machines to summon powerful allies to fight for him, you'd be wrong. The Alchemist is nothing more than your typical fantasy mage character. Still, he has plenty going for him, so read our guide to see how you can best put him to use.
For players who want nothing more than to wade into the center of mobs of enemies and hack them to death with a gigantic bladed weapon, the Destroyer is the class of choice. Torchlight allows you to customize your Destroyer to keep the gameplay fun, with bonuses to skills and stats to keep you alive while you dish out the hurt. Take down mobs of enemies with all your wounds shrugged off and come out victorious, if blood-soaked.
