Recensies

“If you were afraid that the idea of a fighter that's controlled with just two buttons was a joke that would get old quickly, then you clearly haven't played much Divekick!.”
9 / 10 – Destructoid

“Simply put, Divekick is a fighting game that you can — and should! — play even if you're not usually good at fighting games.”
A- – Gaming Age

“It has captured everything we love about fighting games in a mere two buttons. Simply put, it’s genius. This is no joke.”
8 / 10 – Cheat Code Central

Over dit spel

Divekick is 's-werelds eerste vechtspel met twee knoppen. Het reduceert het vechtspellengenre tot slechts twee knoppen en géén joystick. Divekick's gameplay demonstreert hoeveel diepte een enkele move heeft, en introduceert (of hoont) vaardigheden die van fundamenteel belang zijn voor het genre: mind-games, afstand, timing, en snelle reacties.

Wij van Iron Galaxy houden van vechtspellen. Wat vechtspellen leuk maakt voor de gemiddelde fan is vaak verstopt achter eindeloze knoppencombinaties die je uit je hoofd moet leren. Daarom heeft Divekick slechts twee knoppen: "Dive" (duik in de lucht) zorgt ervoor dat je karakter recht omhoog springt. Met "Kick" schopt je karakter weer naar beneden. Als je de "Kick" knop indrukt terwijl je op de grond staat, spring je weg van je tegenstander. Je vecht met deze moves, en wie het eerst de ander raakt wint de ronde. Doe dit vijf keer en je hebt de wedstrijd gewonnen. Het is puur adrenaline, bewustzijn, en slimmer zijn dan je tegenstander. Het is een vechtspel ontleed in zijn puurste vorm.

Belangrijkste features

  • 14+ compleet unieke en originele karakters, elk met zijn of haar eigen vechtstijl en speciale technieken. Dat zijn 91 unieke wedstrijdcombinaties die je kunt leren!
  • Inclusief twee extra speelbare karakters: Fencer uit Nidhogg en Johnny Gat uit Saints Row!
  • Een verhaal voor elk karakter, met intro, einde en rivaal-gevechten. Je zal tot tranen geroerd raken!
  • Speel online in geklassificeerde en ongeklassificeerde wedstrijden met GGPO-technologie, de meest vertrouwde netwerkcode voor vechtspellen. Divekick heeft een globaal klassement en individuele klassementen per karakter.
  • Speel met twee spelers op één computer, met snelle en makkelijke knoppenconfiguratiemenu's zodat je eenvoudig met een grote groep verschillende mensen kunt spelen.
  • Complete Steamworks-integratie, met onder andere Big Picture Mode.

The Game managed to be fun with its 2 button only scheme, im not gonna act like its a great game because its not, its full of in jokes and references that most people wont get, its balance is pretty bad (Almost every char has a counter and is counter to someother char) and it can get boring pretty quickly, with all said i think its fun to play with friends because you dont need to learn any complicated combos or to control specificly every character, i bought it for 5$ and i think its worth that price, i woudnt pay a cent more for it tough.

This game is not good, not a single good thing about it. It received a very undeserved amount of hype at its release.
I ended up getting this one as part of a humble bundle and it’s absolute garbage. After just 10 minutes with the game I was so bored I had to get out. This game is not worth adding to your steam library even if it was free.

This does more to teach people about the fundamentals of fighting games than really any fighting game I have ever seen. If you can ignore the fact the artstyle looks pretty DeviantArtish there is actually a really fun game inside.

With two buttons however, comes the realization that people who ARE good at fighting games, have much less to think about. Divekick is both the easiest and hardest fighting game to learn and excel at respectively, for this very reason.

Divekick is based on a joke, that was turned into a simple game. People liked the idea of the joke, and the simple game became a much more complicated game and was given a $10 price tag.

Divekick is full of in-jokes and references that most casual gamers will miss. The game itself is somewhat tiring, limiting how often people are willing to play. Design-wise, balance appears to be handled through counter-picking rather than attempting to make all match-ups even. For a $10 game, it is fairly no frills. As a $10 game, it is overpriced.

NOTE: It is possible that Iron Galaxy Studios have abandoned this game. A 2014 update introduced an issue where the game crashes during Redacted's story mode, which has yet to be fixed as of May 23, 2015. The game's non-Steam forum, where a pinned Steam topic sends people with support issues, is overrun by spambots. A Steam post on December 25, 2014 acknowledges both the crash bug as well as the spam issue, stating that everyone was on vacation for the holidays, and that both issues would be looked at when they returned. Five months later, the crash bug remains and the non-Steam forums remain overrun by spambots.

BUY/SALE/PASS: Buy - Feel free to buy at full price

Divekick is a recent addition to the fighting game genre developed by Iron Galaxy Studios and released in late August. Everyone loves fighting games, right?

No. Not everyone. But why?

The fact of the matter is that for most fighting games the barrier to entry is complexity. Players must learn about each of the characters, how to perform special techniques, and master precision combinations on a six-button layout just to be able to compete.

Divekick throws all the rules out the door and introduces simple yet absurd gameplay. The madness begins with a simple premise: there are no movement controls, and there are only two buttons: Dive and Kick. Pressing Dive makes the player dive into the air, and pressing Kick while in the air causes the player to kick downward towards the opponent. Pressing the Kick button while on the ground causes the player to jump backward away from the opponent. These are the only ways to move around the arena. All divekicks are one hit kills. The first to five kills wins.

Not exactly what you would expect, huh?

What if I told you that it’s one of the most engrossing fighting games released in the past five years?

In a time when fighting games regularly introduce complexity, it’s refreshing to see a game that breaks fighting games down to the bare essentials; strategy. None of the 13 characters, each of whom dive and kick differently, are severely overpowered. There are no long combos to memorize, no comeback super techniques. With no complexity, all that’s left is mind games; the ability to fake out your opponent, the rush of emotion when a plan is executed and comes together flawlessly.

While Divekick is generally understood to be a parody of the fighting game genre, it also unearths concepts that have been buried under layers of complexity for too long and brings the genre back around full circle. Divekick cannot be recommended enough for any fighting game enthusiast willing to try something nice and silly..

Dicekick is one of the most straightforward fighting games ever made: you can dive, kick, and use your specials, that's it, how's that not straightforward? Oh yeah, I forgot to mention you don't even have to use arrow keys — Divekick is literally two buttons.

Does this sound too easy? It is, at first, but when you dive deeper into the game, you realize Divekick has it all: match-ups, hidden techs, supermoves, and even invulnerability! The game's an epitome of "easy to learn, hard to master" gaming law.

If you feel tired of playing fightings that require weeks of learning combos, MOBAs that want you to understand every single ability and kit in the game, or MMOs where you have to level up for months, you should try Divekick! But don't get hooked. Or get, the community's awesome!

Divekick is a fighting game you won't need to spend hours in a training mode practicing combos that'll never land anyway in order to get better. You may not immediately click with its unique parody of fighting games and general poking fun at the fighting game community, but at the very least, you'll probably be pretty good at Divekick by the end of your first match due to its elegance in simplicity.

1 Dive Button.
1 Kick button.
1 hit and you're dead.
5 rounds won and you're godlike.
1 hell of a good time.

That's all you really need to know to get started playing Divekick. Jumping and kicking moves you forward and pressing the kick button while on the ground hops you backward, which can you can also attack during. You couldn't ask for something more approachable.

Divekick's depth comes from managing the space between you and your opponent and trying to outwit one another to land that crucial winning blow. All thirteen characters have unique kick angles and characteristics that are suited for beginners (Dive and Kick) all the way up to characters that require a lot of skill and patience (S-Kill and Stream). All special moves in the game are activated by pressing both buttons at once on the ground or in the air. It's just up to you to figure out how to best utilize them.

Multiplayer is what makes Divekick truly shine. While the AI can be good for getting to know your character a bit, the game's honestly a much better affair when paired with other players either online or locally. The implementation of GGPO keeps matches online mostly silky smooth, though the lack of a proper 4-8 player lobbies is a bit of a bummer.

Even if Divekick is targeted at folks who love their fighting games, its simplistic approach, low skill barrier for entry, and lighthearted nature make it easily recommendable and enjoyable for anyone simply looking to have a good time.
