Castle Tintagel features three different accessibility settings to help lower the difficulty of the base game.

  • Weakened Enemies - This setting decreases the amount of hits an enemy would need to take. For example, an enemy that would take two hits now only take one.
  • Increased Checkpoints - This increases the number of checkpoints to every single room. Without this setting the player may respawn in the previous room.
  • Unlimited lives - Instead of the player being limited to three lives this puts no life limit on the game allowing the player to die as many times as needed.
