Withering Rooms rewards caution and adapting your playstyle to the situation. While it has action elements, this is not an action game! You don't need to be great at dodging or attacking if you're willing to switch tactics. If you try to apply the same approach to every room and encounter, the game will be much more difficult. Here are a few additional tips:
Peek and listen before entering rooms so you don't get surprised
The Spirit Twig can used extremely quickly and will get you out of almost any tricky spot
If an enemy is giving you trouble, sneak past it and try again once you're more powerful
Bringing up the inventory pauses the game, so use it to take a moment to think during a tense encounter
Keep an eye on your status effect build up in the upper right so you can apply the appropriate healing items early
If you're suffering from curse rot, a warding candle will eliminate that status effect immediately
Merchants sell most crafting materials, and refill their stock as you run out
If the game is still too difficult for you after trying out different approaches, you can switch to the much easier Narrative difficulty setting in the Gameplay Options section of the Pause Menu.
As a tiny studio, there's no way we could make Withering Rooms the best game it could be without your bug reports and input. Thank you for supporting independent games and helping us make something special!
