Is Divekick worth $2.50?

Yes, yes it is. A very cheap price for a fighting game anyone can be a master to. Only 2 buttons yet all the mind games of a fighter still remains. I think it is worth it at $2.50.

Well, the game only has diving and kicking so ask yourself, "Are each of these features worth $1.25 each to me?", and if the answer is "yes" (which it probably won't be) then, sure, purchase it.

When I first heard about it I thought it sounded stupid. After watching a bit of gameplay it actually looks pretty fun. Not something I'd play for hours on end like I did with Mortal Kombat or Soul Calibur 2/3 back in the day but still worth playing.

Maybe I'm silly for thinking this but it seems like it'd make a good party game. Silly characters, no learning curve, very fast pace (5 rounds lasts 100 seconds if every round times out), and enough content to keep a small crowd entertained for a little while.

I hate these topics. If you can't afford 2.50 then you have bigger problems and shouldn't be buying games at all.

Well, I linked the concept. Bring mind games to an interesting level without requiring people to learn much of a game.

But it didn't come out as that at all.

I tend to be the best at fighting games, so thats why I picked it, but it didn't stop my friends from constantly screaming "this is bull****" or some equivalent.

It actually didn't last 5 minutes and my friend impulse bought it for us at 10$. Decision made drunk, I believe.

Mind games did exist in the game, but it was a primitive level, and it just didn't feel there at all, for good and bad fighting players alike here.

In the end, considering I see a flash-level quality game in there anyway and it really had no positive effect on us, I'd not recommend it.

The fights also get really annoying because they are nothing but constant, neverending interruption of the gameplay, since everything is a one-hit kill and the time it goes to the next round is far too long for the type of game it tries to be.

Little things and all that.

I think I'd rather get Rockem Sockem Robots from a garage sale for that price

Did anyone say they couldn't afford $2.50? I didn't see anyone say that.

The question is would they be better off burning their money for warmth than wasting it on a game that is fun for 10 minutes and they'll never play again. (No I'm not saying this applies here, but for many games and topics like this it does). The topic is as-advertised: Is this game worth buying at X price point.

It's really fun. There is actually some strategy and challenge to the game, despite it only being two buttons. Every fighter controls differently, like the last time I played there's a guy named Baz who's kicks barely connect, but it leaves a streak of lighting behind him the in arc of where he dives in. The trick is to get your opponent into the lightning. There's also 5 rounds which does make the fights last long enough and be fair.
