I actually have.  Back on the Atari, I wrote a game called "Zorn"
(don't ask where I got the name; no idea), which was Ultima/Zelda'ish.

I tried writing a few Zelda clones, too.

Under Linux using SDL, I once came up with a nifty isometric map scroller,
which even used alphablending for when you were obscured by objects.
All quite simple and tile-based.  Last I worked on it (a few years ago),
I was trying to add 'blindspot' support.  (e.g, you can't see through walls)

Infogrames (aka Atari) is pub'ing it.  I'll look into it.
