    Battle Chess holds the distinction of being the best-selling game ever developed or published by Interplay.

    And it was developed for the Commodore Amiga. +M

    Diablo 1 had far better death animations, which felt very rewarding. Better death sounds as well.

    On point. The sounds were top-notch.

    Damn right. I'll always remember the death sounds of Hidden Ones and Succubi.

    Mostly the player, but enemies crumple nicely too. Not as elaborately though. Also check out the two Elvira games (which this one is a sequel to), they had nice death illustrations too.

    Every fantasy game ever.
    Diablo 1 had some good ones.

    I liked when you'd whack the scavengers and they'd have their hind leg violently convulse.

    City beneath the surface is totally worth a mention.

    I don't know if it's a good game because on many aspects it sucks (very lack of world interactivity compared to Dungeon Master especially, and then very boring combat too for this reason), but the level design was becoming quite complex while I was just on 5th floor when I got stuck I think while there are 30 based on the description, but what's certain is that its different bloody enemies' death animations are noteworthy.
