* DeathTrap: Each time you lose, Sutekh tosses you into another slow-moving and overly-elaborate trap. To his credit, he becomes [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy progressively more clever]] each time you break loose. Also to his credit, [[MoonLogicPuzzle given the kind of logic these games run on]], a player who hasn't read a walkthrough still stands a good chance of dying in these:

** If you check out the crowbar at the beginning of the game, you will find a reference from ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', a furry comic: [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/luisedgarf/NightshadeU-0_zps37f1f074.png A very odd romantic message written by Toki (A character from the comic who doesn't appear in the game) addressed to the heroine Erma (who she neither appears in the game either) appears]]. This is justified as the game was scripted by the Australian writer Paul Kidd, who worked with Albedo's creator, Steven A. Gallacci in some of his stories.[[note]]This also overlaps with GettingCrapPastTheRadar, being ''Albedo'' a very obscure comic, there's no way the Nintendo's censors could catch the reference, as Toki is female, and the crowbar thing is a reference towards the ''[[ADateWithRosiePalms Erma with a crowbar]]'' meme in the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, not to mention the fact there is a ''[[LesYay lesbian joke]]'' in a NES game.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* CheckPointStarvation: There is no way to save your game. Unless you're playing on an emulator, you're expected to play the entire game from start to finish in one sitting.
