Hmm, the singular button at the right... is that for jumping or attacking? Because I can see the character off of the ground in the 4th screenshot, and they appear to always have their weapons drawn.

The screenshots look pretty exciting, but the how the combat and RPG elements play out will greatly affect the longevity of this game. Anyone remember that 2D scrolling endless fighting/RPG where all you fight are squares with varying sizes and behaviors?

The button's for jumpin i think. Character auto-runs, and his weapon is always drawn as if charging with a lance. At least that's how i understood the game in the videos.

What i dont understand is the use of directional buttons, if 1 button can be used to switch direction, since the character auto-forwards anyway.
