Easy: enemies range from 7-10
Normal: enemies range from 9-12
Hard: enemies range from 11-14
Very hard: enemies range from 13-15
I agree that it's pretty easy when you lay it out that way, but I can't recall playing any game that ever did this. Isn't level-scaling usually a design choice rather than a user option?
