Divekick is the world’s first two-button fighting game. It distills the essence of the fighting game genre into just two buttons with no d-pad directional movement. Divekick’s 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. That’s 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. It’s pure adrenaline, awareness, and outsmarting your enemy. It’s a fighting game deconstructed into its purest form.

Great Game If you like the action of Street Fighter with the simplicity of the Snake (Nokia) and the most bizarre graphics you've ever seen!!! I loved the game!!! Also with SUPER COMPETITIVE Online league mode!!!

Fun game, gameplay somewhat short, but ideal to share, as a good party-game that is. Fight really geeks, with incredible detallazos and above all, a great story mode (without feet or head). I recommend it.

A game for lovers of baston games. You can play it without learning how to play it is 100% instinctive. Only the years of experience that we have acquired in street fighter KOF or other combat game we will serve to know when to do "dive" then "kick".

Well It's actually fun and good to kill time, the freedom to play with only two buttons and it's addictive. I put the negative not for price, but try to play online, and there is almost no in ranked. So It is not so entertaining to play it only campaign. It´s to shame!

I did the Game because it said it was a cool Game, with great Mechanics. Great, just 2 Buttons, that sounds promising? But It is not because there are 0 Explanations as to how exactly to use the two Buttons. Is that fun? Others, perhaps. I had enough after a few Tries. Too bad for the Money.

The game principle of this Beat 'em up Game is super simple. There are only two Buttons available, no matter which: ' Dive ' And ' Kick '. It's more of a Parody of the usual Beat 'em ups and still Fun. No giant mega super combos, just Jumping and Kicking ^^. Of Course, there are also special moves, but that gives the whole thing a little strategic Moments. Each Hit is winning the Round, so the Matches can run quite quickly. With only two available Buttons, however, really exciting Duels can develop, you can hardly believe it. For a nice Game in between, even with a decent Level Of difficulty, the Game is certainly worth it. It doesn't take itself that seriously though, so the Player shouldn't either ... ^^ 7/10 HP: A Plus point Is the nice Sayings of the Characters and the comichaft voices ... genuinely funny:)
