The character is supposed to look (not visually, it just has graphics for left / right) at your mouse (indicated by the arrow around our character). That is not working as intended? Can you give more details on this? Or even a small video / gif?
For me the character was 'stuck' facing left or right. No matter where I moved the mouse, nothing happened. When I dodged that was the only time when the character changed his orientation. Sorry I don't have a video, I wasn't recording at that time.
