UE4 has a top down template that has controls built it that are similar to Diablo II.

A game in UE4 can be created without writing a single line of code.

Normally I'd say you could literally use anything. But if you're looking for something simple... probably Unity or Godot.

 

A word of warning... it's not going to be easy in general to make a full game.

If they keep the scope and scale of the game small it will be much easier.

Since no one pointed out engines targeted at beginner programmers yet, I thought I jump on board.
Some engines provide a visual/event based programming language which is far easier to get into than classical text based languages. Be aware, that these require the same logic put into them, so they will not solve your problems automagically. You still have to learn the fundamental concepts of programming, but is much easier to start making something interactive with these tools and it is a tiny bit harder to make mistakes.

The most popular one is GameMaker although the makers of the engine are focusing more and more on their traditional built-in scripting language.
Another pretty popular (a bit more browser focused) one is Construct 2.
Older/other somewhat popular similar contenders are: Clickteam Fusion (successor of klik & play) and Stencyl.

Without programmation it's a little aimed only for RPG type game, but to complete Spidi message, you also have RPG Maker that is easy to understand and use without any need of programming.

With the advantage that every version under the last are pretty cheap to buy usually, or often on sale on the Humble Store (like now)
