I am translating my math game to english and I am struggling with a translation of one word. Translation tools offer me "complexity" but I feel it does not match my context well. It holds options like "Easy", "Normal" or "Hard". Is it really the complexity?

Other context: "First solved task with normal or easier complexity"
