In my experience (about 10 tries,) I have literally only died from food. I pick up any food I can and use it only when I absolutely must. I don't know if I'm just unlucky, but there seems to just be not enough food. Either way I personally found it getting old and unfair. Like I said it's a great game, but for me this kinda made me lose interest. I'm not saying it should be easier, but I feel like in a dungeon game,I should die from traps or monsters at least half the time.
