Abstract [en]

Designing entertaining games requires control over the difficulty experienced by players. Gameplay has a clear impact on the difficulty and as such is easy to handle but other factors such as graphics do not share this clear cut impact. Therefore a game was made with adjustable graphical settings without changing any game elements in order to evaluate the effect on 18 participants. No effect was found for the measured performance but a weak correlation is possible for perceived difficulty.
