Is the gameplay as uneventful as that video makes it look

That's putting it nicely. It appears you basically just run into shiit? Yay for engaging gameplay!

I am interested if anyone has some insight though.

The video shows no sword movement or jumping of the character?

Hope there is more to this game?

Am I missing something?

Don't be fooled by the video. it's indeed a runner with a twist, I like it so far. takes timing some strategy and serious farming to progress through the game.

My only complaint so far is the landscape mode, such a minimalist game would have been better in portrait. I guess landscape makes it easier to see enemies coming up.

anyway gratz to the dev and good luck!
