For dodging you have to JUMP sideways, press the jump key and either A, or D (one of those, not both) at the same time, your character will dodge by performing a roll. It is implemented, you just have to find it out like me (and I didn't even read a manual).

I know resurrecting old topics might seem weird, but for all people reading this, it might come in handy. So again, there IS dodging in the game.

Ah, but does the dodge function affect that?

Affect what? You dodge by rolling your body on the ground. If you mean if it affects ... well ... dodging, then yes, it does. By dodging you evade shots, missiles and whatnot, but it's about the timing, if you don't time it well, then you get shot, simple as that.

But dodge is beyond that. Does it do anything significant?

Aside from the visuals (the roll is nice to watch) and the practical purpose of evading shots, no, it doesn't do pretty much anything special.

Maybe I misunderstood - if nothing is invested in dodge, can one do the roll you talked about?

There is a passive skill called Evade, which gives a chance of avoiding melee attacks.
This is independent of the physical mechanic of dodging, which can be actively used to avoid ranged attacks or get away from melee opponents, etc (no in-game skill required; just hit the jump button while moving left or right, in human form).

I don't even know if you can invest in dodge, if it's upgradable like other skills (for example dual wielding and stuff), you start with dodge, you can dodge just like you can jump and there's no jump upgrade (though you can upgrade jump attack, but not the jump itself).
