Black Crypt is the first game developed and released by Raven Software, and also an unashamed rip-off of FTL’s Dungeon Master. And it is not a bad one at that.
Unlike in Dungeon Master, you can only create characters from scratch, so can’t choose from any pre-made characters.
Black Crypt is tough. But it is worth a play. It was first released in 1992. And has reasonably nice, colourful graphics, as you can see here.
