I'm going to go ahead and assume you're being sarcastic.
Unless you're talking about an experienced player, then it's not too easy to die.
Either that, or when I did my play through I got very lucky... because there's a lot I didn't remember about KQ5... and the biggest pain was the desert.
Other than that there's only a few places where you can die that I know of (inside the one tavern, if you walk up to those guys... and the yeti...)
Ok let's start at the beginning:
-Death by snake bite
Well, that one is obvious to avoid. Cedric even warns you.
-Death by falling in river (x3 screens to the south)
I wasn't even aware that was possible, in the eons, I've had the game.
-Death by bees
Wait. How do you die by the bees?
-Death by bear
Is this if you approach? I've never been killed by the bear. Similar to the snake, no need to approach (it's obvious, like not walking in front of a moving bus) unless you have something to use.
-Death by witch
Oh! Yes, I forgot about her. She got me once, before I remembered what to do.
-Death by scorpion
Don't remember this?
-Death by desert
Well. Yeah. This one is the one I mentioned is the most common.
-Death by bandits (x3: at the mountainside, at the camp, in the bandits' tent)
True. But this was easy to avoid.
-Trapped in treasure hold
Yes! You're right. This one also got me once on my most recent play through.
-Dying in dark forest for not having the items you need to escape (x2, spider death on bottom-right screen, tentacle death on top-left screen)
True again, though the witch was almost the last thing I did in the area, until I had nothing else to do.
-Death in inn if not helped rat
True, this one I knew what to do. I can see how someone else wouldn't (or didn't react in time).
-Death by freezing
True, but this one even warns you about proceeding forward.
-Death by hunger
Never had this one happen. (Granted I ate the wrong thing way back when... which is needed for something else).
-Death by grappling branch instead of rock with rope
True, this one got me once in my most recent play through.
-Death by falling off numerous ledges
Well that's STANDARD in King's Quest.
-Death by stepping on wrong ledge on snowy mountains
-Death by not using sled
-Death by wolves for not playing harp
-Death by Yeti
-Death by hatchling if not helped Eagle
-Death by hole in boat
-Death by sea monster
-Death by Harpies for not playing harp
-Death by falling at Mordack's island (numerous ledges)
-Death by statue laser eyes
-Death by Mordack (for a MYRIAD of reasons, causing any disturbances at all like playing the organ, the cat seeing you, etc)
-Death in the prison (if haven't helped Cassima)
-Death by Mordack if not charged wand
-Death by Mordack if not helped Cedric
-Death by choosing wrong spells or not using spells in time (x6 I think)
That's all I can think of atm.
I think you made your point.
