I remember reading somewhere the difference between normal and hard but I cannot find it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
It gets lost in the shuffle and is prone to being tweaked but here:viewtopic.php?t=158
---QUOTED FROM LINK ABOVE---
In Hard (or Ironman), monsters have an extra 35% life, and get a bonus to damage and armor. Traps do 30% more damage.
Also, enemies and traps are a little more frequent than before, but that really depends on the area, as on those with fixed spawns there will be no difference.
There's no "reward" because that could defeat the entire purpose of a more difficult mode, but in Hard or Ironman, your leaderboard score will be doubled. I might also add a few achievements that can only be attained in Hard or Ironman mode.
