** The names of several chapters don't even try to hide which works they were inspired by ([[TheTimeMachine "The Time Device"]] and [[Literature/ASoundOfThunder "The Sound of Lightning"]], to name two of the better examples).

* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: When Lex dies, he's merely transported back to the beginning of the chapter he died in. The game says that you lose the potions you used, but you'd have lost them anyway even if you had survived ([[CaptainObvious them having been used, after all]]). Plus, you don't lose experience ''and'' you get the opportunity to replay minigames to win additional potions and/or gem tiles if you're far enough in the book, which means that you can deliberately throw the boss fight in a late chapter of a book, play the minigames to get more potions and gem tiles, then go back to that chapter and defeat all enemies for more experience, and even throw the boss fight ''again'' to stock up on more potions and experience. When you die, Cassandra (Mother Goose in ''Volume 2'') even says that "dying is a minor setback".

As Lex progresses through each book chapter (ten per book), the monsters (in the first book, Oedipus Lex, based on ClassicalMythology, with the second, Arabian Knight, of ''Literature/ArabianNights'' and the third, Lexonomicon, of GothicHorror) get more difficult, with a boss fight at the end of every chapter. Fortunately, Lex also becomes stronger; he occasionally levels up in HP, attack, or defense and obtains a nifty treasure at the end of every chapter with various beneficial effects. Additionally, every book has optional {{minigame}}s, unlocked once Lex has completed a certain number of chapters, that can be played for prizes.
