The spined devil is a demon added in SLASH'EM. It is fast, but relatively weak.

Strategy

Few players will find these a threat: they are relatively fast, but do incredibly poor damage for a monster that only appears in Gehennom, with their two attacks only doing 10 points of physical base damage at most.

Early doppelgangers may find this a useful polymorph form, however; they can start turning into spined devils with 60% success rate at experience level 3. While lacking any special sort of attacks, the form is fast and inediate, more than sufficient for use in the early game.
