There seem to be things in this game that are designed purely for extreme annoyance. It would be cool to figure out a way to disable them.

So far the two I have encountered that are just miserable and not fun:

1) Death. You can't kill him at all. You just have to waste time running around in circles. This is super obnoxious and adds nothing fun to the game. It would be cool to either eliminate him entirely or make him do 0 damage.

2) Darkness in Act II. All of a sudden the caves are insanely dark. You can not only see a few feet around your character. This is utterly stupid. What's the point of a game like this then? If you can't make decisions based on your view of the battlefield, because you can't see the battlefield, that's just dumb.

I'm worried Act III will have its own stupid and annoying feature as well.

death is meant to kill you he was nerfed in the later games he was killable with potions since the later games didnt use them to activate items and he didnt 1 shot you he slowly drained your life or gold in some games.
also this was the very first version of Gauntlet games just remastered basicly by different people so its going to be very arcade like and not normal day games like its meant to be, hard or tough
as for the darkness in act 2 thats just a part of the moment your in a cave after all

I seem to recall you could always kill death with potions.

Also, this is a reboot, and the game is clearly enormously different than coin op Gauntlet.

I don't mind things that are challenging, but they should be fun also.

The darkness just takes away my ability to even SEE any of the screen. It is ridiculous.

And their implementation of Death is terrible. You just run around in circles. Carpal tunnel.

IMO at least. I'd love to figure out a way to disable these two things.

your character emits light around itself in the darkness so if you really cant see anything then something is wrong with your game

as for the carpal tunnel bit, death doesnt stay on screen very long even on unfair he stays for under 40 seconds in the later games of gauntlet if you didnt have or want to waste a potion you would run around in circles until you outran death or trapped him in a corner cause he doesnt leave unless hes eaten a player in later games so be happy he doesnt stay forever in this one

That light around your character is minimal. It removes all the tactical elements of combat. Plus, running into every corner to check for gold/keys is obnoxious - especially for an entire level.

Death: Like I said, it isn't challenging to deal with him, it is just a time wasting annoyance. I think time wasting annoyances are bad for action arcade games.

Just a preference thing I guess.
