There actually aren't many on steam. I don't think people really make these kinds of games anymore. Besides Mystara, there's also Castle Crashers.

In the SEGA bundles with old console games there is a bunch. But they are OLD school...

And oh yeah, the Shank games, 1 and 2.

The 1st game like this i played was "GOLDEN AXE" on the Amiga Commodore.
Today also available on PlayStationNetwork. But the graphics are oldschool (of course) ^^

This sort of game is a mash up of four genres of games. The fast skill based combat of action games. Character development with skills, abilities, loot, and such of RPGs. Various combat elements like blocks, counters, combos, and timing of brawlers (Street Fighter, King of Fighter, etc...). Then the smashing through levels to get sweet, sweet loot of a dungeon crawler.

There are ones in the realm of free to play games that are like this (Continent of the Ninth, Vindictus, Rusty Hearts, etc...), but decidedly longer, and more involved. The downside is the publishers can be less than stellar. Take Rusty Hearts, a good game that's being ignored and handled very badly by their North American publisher, causing people to feel it's best to play the Japanese version. I like Continent of the Ninth (don't download the Steam client, get it from the publisher/developer Webzen), but if you get into these, I'd suggest you stay away from PvP. They all work off of a peer to peer connection, and you can end up playing with someone who knows how far away, resulting is potentially painful lag/latency. It's best to play these with those in your general geographical area, or solo.

For stuff like it on PC, there's not a lot outside of F2P games, and those that have already been mentioned which tend to be more simplified. On the PS3 and PS VIta you might want to look at Dragon's Crown, and Ragnarok Odyssey. If you're willing to drop one or more of those four component genres the number of games balloons significantly, but if you want all four there isn't a lot of them.

You should be pleased with Castle Crashers or the upcoming game Final Exam .
