Thanks for the bug report, I'll look into it! And yes, I'm definitely continuing work on the game! I've made some progress since the jam but have a few more things I'd like to do before putting out an update. I'm glad you're still enjoying the game (and it definitely helps motivate me to work on the update more)!

Answering in reverse order:
There isn't any way to wait (will probably change),
Using melee items is the only way to attack diagonally (won't change),
...and the only way past items without picking them up is by using your equipment them to move them out of the way or destroy them - items on the ground can be targeted just like enemies.
