Take it slow. If you are hurt or run out of Magic Energy, wait in an empty room and rest until your Hit Points and Magic Energy return to full. This can help prevent you from dying and having to reload your game.

Smash and break everything you can. Sometimes you will find special items and gold when you smash barrels, crates, and vases.

Beware with all barrels that come your way. Before smashing barrels, wait to see if an "ignite" option appears. If so, do not smash them with a melee weapon because they will explode and harm you. You can use ranged weapons to destroy these barrels.

Remember the camera. Move the camera around to see beyond your line of sight, such as around a corner. Also use the camera to find barrels and chests that may be hidden in the shadows.

Save your game as often as you can. When you see a new save point be sure to use it so you do not loose progress in your game.

Recall. Use your recall potions to save time from running back and forth between town and the dungeons. Using a potion will return you from a dungeon to your "safe point" but be sure not to leave the safe point so you can recall back to your original spot in the dungeon.
