"One-Touch Duel Action..."

What's the directional buttons, and the 2 action buttons doing there? Am I missing something?

Just tried out the free version. Hmmm. 'Could' potentially be okay, games which use the 'stickman' i dont mind but these ones look a bit fuzzy.

I couldnt get off the first screen as there were hordes of people attacking me, got a bit boring after a while and gave up, sorry !

Sorry for the confusion with our catch phrase. We meant by one-touch duel action that there are many different actions that you can prompt with one same touch, depending on where you and the enemies are standing and what kind of weapons you equipped. Just touching one button can result into many different actions. We believe you will know what we mean once you try Dark Blade, and hope you enjoy playing it

Do you have to purchase the IAP to keep playing this? This is a make or break deal here for me. If I don't need it, I'll pick up this game.

I have been able to replay levels and get equal amounts of points per replay. You don't get many, but it has ended up being about 100 points for 2 mins on average for the first level replay.

Which means that everything can be purchased by playing the game. I just briefly played while getting ready for work. But initial impressions are that this game rocks.
