Divekick: The 2 button fighting game that sounds....terrible

Divekick is the worldís first two-button fighting game. It distills the essence of the fighting game genre into just two buttons with no d-pad directional movement. Divekickís focused gameplay demonstrates how much depth a single move actually has, and introduces (or reinforces) skills fundamental to the genre: mind games, spacing, timing, and quick reactions.

At Iron Galaxy we love fighting games. To the average fan, most of what makes them fun is hidden behind a never-ending series of input combinations that they have to memorize. Thatís why Divekick has just two buttons: Dive (into the air) makes your character jump straight up. Kick causes your character to fly foot first at a downward angle. If you press Kick on the ground, you can jump away from your opponent. Utilizing these moves, the first hit will win the round, and the player that wins five rounds first wins the game. Itís pure adrenaline, awareness, and outsmarting your enemy. Itís a fighting game deconstructed into its purest form.



13 Completely unique and original characters, each with their own fighting style and special techniques. That's 91 unique match-ups to play and learn.

I've heard a lot of great things about it. The game isn't made to be serious, it's just a silly concept that really took off during development. That being said, it better be a really cheap game.

It looks interesting, but I probably wouldn't pay more than a couple of bucks for it.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

It's been played at quite a few major tournaments.
It's more popular within the fighting game community since they see it as a fun parody game.

lol no.

Most fighting game fans dislike the game.At first? Sure, it was funny.
OMG LOOK JUST DIVE KICK!.
But after they wanted money from us to buy it? THat's when many of the people in the fighting game community began to juust say' enoughg is enough.' Seriously, a crappy looking game that you'd play back in middle school as a flash game ? Terrible.

A lot of people in the fighting game community just can't stand that something crappy like that is being shoved in tournaments. Of course you get dlc to buy bonuses to power your character up!

Never gonna buy this crappy game. As a membere of the fighting game community, I can honestly say this game as a terrible joke that should juust die already. Of course those that don't play fighting games will juust laugh at how 'crazy and wacky' it is that will make them pick it up. Not worth it.

You haven't played the game, so your opinion means jack.

But I'm not surprised of your opinion; you have horrible taste in games.
