Highlighting one error in CHROME: Tapped to another tap in Chrome shortly, came back and clipped out of bounce

I like the idea that the player can wait for the dice roll to attack rather than it being completely random. It gives the player more control. The movement and jumping feel good but it's hard to tell which things you can stand on and how much of them you can stand on. I think this is due to a lack of contrast with the background and there being no outline on the area you can stand on. Good job overall.

Nice gameplay and combat, but it would be helpful if you made it more clear as to where the player is supposed to go since the map is very big.
