Personally, I found the difficulty to be slightly challenging.

 

The beginning of the game is the hardest part since all your weapons suck and the game likes to place spikes everywhere in the first 3 stages. The spikes don't instantly kill you but they do decent damage and are tricky to avoid sometimes. The third stage is 90% spikes and I think most people drop the game around that point; I don't really blame them because it's quite annoying. The fourth stage is a bit tricky but the stages after are not noteworthy.

 

Heroic mode makes enemies and obstacles deal double damage (the spikes are back with vengeance). The game gets a little harder and I died a few more times then on my normal playthrough.

Thanks for the response.  I see you platted the game in just over 8 hours, so the difficulty couldn't have slowed you down too much.  ;)   (Granted, you're probably a more adept player than I am.)

 

How was locating all of the secret areas?  A quick search on YT didn't yield any videos outlining where they could be found.

Aww, thanks for the complement.

 

I wasn't able to find any resources online that helped with finding the secret areas. All the secret areas are hidden inside the walls and all I did to find them was brush up against every floor, wall and ceiling. I left a few tips for finding them.

  1. You are never required to take damage to access one.
  2. They are almost always hidden in thicker parts of the environment.  
  3. If you have to fall down a small empty corridor, there is usually on hidden in one of the walls. That trick is used a lot, especially in the later levels.
  4. Any "arena" area where you're forced to fight a wave or two of enemies, never contain a secret area.
  5. The last stage does not have a secret area. 
  6. There is no way track how many you have found but most contain health, armour and ammo capacity upgrades that are tracked by level. A few only have health and armour pickups but I don't rember any secret areas past the 4th stage that don't contain an upgrade. 

I was able to find all the secret areas in 2-3 complete runs of all the stages but one. The 4th stage had a very hard one to find. It's on the right side of a small-ish wall, immediately left of the smallest pool of acid in the level. The area is located on the path to the lever that opens the level's exit.

It's tough on the early levels... especially 3 and on heroic it's even worse. The middle levels are a lot easier and it picks back up again for the last levels but not as bad. 

 

Remembering the layout of the level will help a lot and save you a lot of time from restarting levels. Run through them again on normal to refresh and figure out the best strategy.

I missed some as well. With my full upgraded character I went back and replayed the from the beginning and found a secret area I missed in the 2nd level and the trophy.
