All events, locations of things of any type, etc., are always randomized. During that five years there was a trap I stepped on that I came across only once in all of that time (towards the end).

Thing about these - perhaps - is that they're for a generation of people who needed a bit more imagination because special effects were far less developed. You played a lot in what I think is still referred to as "your mind's eye". Even that expression - somewhat poetical an image drawn with words has been replaced by the much more 'flashy' rap. Games - ever closer to live (which is kinda neat) but ultimately a down side even to that:   as phones have taken over so much of the social interactions of "the young", their gaming world can fill in their need for that personal interaction they now seem to dread when, well, in person.

So I admit - I use the tiled version - but also, in no small part, because the number of items and creatures to be recognized has grown so much. However, I am still adapting away from the mouse and more to the keyboard (no small feat) as it puts you more into the whole thing as muscle memory puts you more as one with the adventure.
