Ce spun criticii

“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

Despre acest joc

Divekick este primul joc cu lupte din lume cu doar două butoane. Acesta distilează esența acestui gen de jocuri în doar două butoane, fără a folosi un joystick direcțional. Gameplay-ul jocului demonstrează de câtă profunzime poate da dovadă o singură mișcare, și introduce (sau consolidează) competențe fundamentale în acest gen de jocuri: jocuri de gândire, spațiere, timp și reacții rapide.

Aici, la Iron Galaxy, iubim jocurile cu lupte. Pentru un fan obișnuit, ceea ce-l face amuză este ascuns în spatele unor serii interminabile de combinații pe care trebuie să le memorizeze. Acesta este motivul pentru care Divekick are doar două butoane: Dive (în aer) îl va face pe caracter să sară direct în sus. Kick îl va face să zboare cu picioarele înainte la un unghi de coborâre. Dacă apăsați Kick pe pământ, aveți posibilitatea de a sări departe de adversar. Folosing aceste mișcări, prima lovitură va desemna câștigătorul rundei, iar jucătorul care câștigă primul cinci runde câștigă jocul. Este adrenalină pură, conștientizare și înfrângerea inamicului.

Caracteristici Principale

  • 14+ caractere total unice și originale, fiecare cu stilul său de luptă și tehnicile sale speciale.
  • Include Fencer și Johnny Gat actualizări!
  • O poveste pentru fiecare caracter din joc, inclusiv o introducere, un final și lupte cu rivalii. Veți rămâne profund impresionat!
  • Joc online GGPO-powered, cu clasament sau fără, cel mai sigur netcode al jocurilor de luptă. Include panouri de clasament pentru fiecare caracter, precum și per ansamblu.
  • Local VS play pentru doi jucători, cu posibilitate de reconfigurare rapidă și ușoară pentru un confort sporit al jucătorilor.
  • Integrare totală Steamworks, inclusiv Big Picture Mode.

I bought this expecting it to just be some gag game that I'd play a few times then forget, but this is those most fun in a while I've had playing a fighting game. It never stops being tense, and constantly manages to get my friends and I to go ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ whenever both players barely sail over each over, only one pixel away from victory.

Top to bottom, Divekick is a silly game filled with jokes about fighting game characters, fans, and even the people who make the games. Nonetheless, even with the in-jokey attitude the game has, and the exceptionally simplified control system, there is hidden depth that can be uncovered if you look hard enough.

Divekick is a fighting game where you only have two key: Dive and Kick. This is literally it. “Dive” is the misleadingly named jump key, while “Kick” is kick. There are no punch keys, no special attack keys, nor even any movement keys. It is simply “Dive” and “Kick” you have to worry about. The obvious question that pops up is “How do you move around the screen?” The answer to that, is by diving (jumping) and kicking which provides for all your movement in the game. It’s also how you kill the enemy fighter, in a single hit.

Divekick is a deep fighting game, wrapped in a simple idea. Having only 4 or 5 things to be worried about in a match, as opposed to the usual 40 in most fighting game, extract the action down nicely. It’s the perfect game for those who enjoy deep fighters, or those who have never played a fighting game before.

Pros :-
1.Wicked sense of humor about fighting games
2.Hidden depth about a basic game
3.The online is great and works well

Cons :-
1.Lack of a real training mode
2.Some fights in the story feel very cheap
3.Lack of other modes or bonus content in other fighting games

Right out of the gate, Divekick is a dumb game. Silly meme characters, ridiculous premence and setting. The game doesn't take itself seriously and neither should the player.

The core concept of the game is emulating the tension of standard fighting games where characters are just one hit away from death. Jump and kick around trying to catch opponents when they over commit is the path to victory. A fun filler game but it won't last for long play sessions.

Pros:

I am 15 and never played a legit fighting game before but the game made me laugh anyways.

It starts to make sense to be killed just by one hit earlier to the game than I expected.

Cons:

I have been waiting for a sale for half a year. Oh well...

"Very positive reviews and has rollback netcode, but no one plays it. I wonder why?"

If you lack the skill to do special moves like quarter circles or charge, combos, moving, blocking, footsies, etc.

This game is for you...

Simple 2 button fighter. All you can do is jump, and (divekick). Well, you can hop backwards too. Regardless, the simplicity contributes to this being an awesome party game.

I like simple multiplayer games, Samurai Gunn and the upcoming Arena Gods are great fun. There is a point at which simplicity can go too far, this is it. Maybe the aesthetic just makes me yearn for a proper fighting game. But this just isn't fun. You can understand everything the game has to offer in 5 minutes of play. It's a paper thin experience. It's not even fun with friends.

I have only ever observed the competitive fighting genre community from orbit. Things like Evo Moment 37 and MAHVEL BAYBEE have been ingrained into Internet culture through osmosis, and while I've never been super into, let alone GOOD at them, I have always admired the passion that the players put into their game(s) of choice.

Divekick is a perfect embodiment of all that energy fans put behind the fighting game scene. The brilliant Kickstartervideos, the silly convention floor demos, the giant two button fight sticks made specifically for the game, and even the game itself all carry that thrill of the fight. Many of the characters and a good portion of the dialog for the various storylines all reference fighting game culture. There are characters based on trolls, players, developers, and even canceled characters from other major fighting game franchises. The game even buys into the whole "guest character" feature ala Soul Calibur and Smash (and probably like 10 other franchises, but remember, I'm not big on fighting games!). Johnny Gat of Saints Row fits right in with the absurdity of Divekick universe, and the new character trailer for Nidhogg's "The Fencer" is a Smash Bros character intro in everything but name.

Speaking of the Divekick universe, Iron Galaxy has built such a silly, lulzy lore to tie this whole concept together. Fighting in this world revolves around combinations of kicking and diving (like, literally their legs are so powerful they can push themselves off the planet and up into the air). Mechanically, there are only two buttons, the gameplay is super simplified but still carries with it quite the meta. Characters are diversified through different angles of attack for diving and kicking, and select characters have additional moves like changing angle in flight, usually at the cost of a movement penalty or something to that effect. The game also employs gems you can set before playing to boost your diving/kicking/meter and some other gameplay modifiers.

The two button mechanic is so basic, but the stakes are just as high as any round of Tekken I've ever played. If you share a love for fighting games, or just want some really silly writing with really silly characters (there's a guy who wears boots on his hands so he can "kick" with his hists), you'd be kicking yourself for not taking a dive into your wallet to buy this game.

Puns.

It’s all about that one moment. Everyone who’s ever played or watched a fighting game knows it. It’s the final round, both players have a slither of health left and the next move is pivotal; the difference between success and failure, win or lose. Whether it’s playing against a friend, competing in an online ranked match or watching one of the many tournament streams of the fighting game community, everyone knows that one moment. It’s the veritable height of tension, excitement, elation and anguish. Divekick is that one moment distilled into an entire game. Each round of every single fight captures the thrill of those final few seconds in a tightly-contested bout; the moment that entices newcomers to the genre and sends diehard fans into mass hysteria. And it’s all accomplished with only two buttons.

What started out as a simple concept featuring two near-mechanically identical characters and a staple move of 2D fighting games, has now evolved to feature a roster of thirteen that surprises with its hidden depth. It’s odd to say that a game with only two buttons has any intricacy, but therein lies Divekick’s beauty. With one button to jump and one to kick it’s easily accessible for newcomers to the genre. Rounds are a quick twenty seconds and each fight’s nine possible rounds will end after one single hit. It’s the fighting game condensed to its purest form, sans any barrier to entry and welcoming to those dumbfounded and put off by the commitment required to learn the inner workings of the genres best. It’s a test of reads and reactions, of tactically positioning yourself based on your character’s idiosyncrasies and those of your opponent.

You simply jump and divekick, launching through the air to knock your opponent down in their stride.The characters of Dive and Kick showcase this concept at its base level, adopting the roles of Ken and Ryu (even if they are parodies of Yun and Yang) in Divekick’s outlandish universe with the most easy-to-grasp attacks. Positioning is determined by how high you jump and the angle of your kick. Press the kick button when your feet are on the ground and you hop backwards; kick enough and your super meter fills, how you use it depends on your fighter selection. These are simple systems and mechanics that welcome the uninitiated, removing the need to mesmerise button combos. Anyone can pick up Divekick and immediately start having fun, and it’s certainly at its best when played with friends, either locally or online.

However, there is an ever present complexity underpinning this apparent simplicity. Venture away from Dive and Kick and you’ll encounter characters with variations on the simple divekick. The Baz, for example, doesn’t defeat his opponents with his kick but with a trail of lightning that follows it. He can also pause mid-air and alter the angle of his kick, making him very effective if you can adjust to the peculiar way he deals damage. Other characters, like Jefailey, change from round to round. With each win his head begins to grow as his ego inflates, allowing you to jump higher while subsequently increasing the likelihood of suffering a critical headshot that leaves you concussed in the next round, drastically reducing the height of your jumps and the speed of your kicks. Dr Shoals, on the other hand, can perform a trajectory altering kick during her initial attack.

Each of Divekick’s thirteen characters adopt their own unique move lists, terrifically setting them apart from one another. That philosophy continues as you begin to experiment with each fighter’s singular special moves. As you build up the super meter via kicking you can either exert it by using Kick Factor (a parody of Marvel vs Capcom 3’s X-Factor that speeds up your character for a limited time) or by using your special moves. Each character has a ground move and an air move that can be activated by pressing both buttons at once provided you have enough meter. These range from the ability to temporarily float in the air to avoid dangerous situations or to set-up divekicks of your own, to a shoryuken-style Upkick and a handy duck. Though each character shares the same two buttons it quickly becomes apparent how diverse they each are, drawing an improbable amount of depth out of its simple control scheme.

Of course, this welcome complexity does contradict the notion that Divekick is incredibly easy to pick-up-and-play for newcomers to the fighting genre. There’s certainly an amount of explanation required whenever someone new picks a different character and wants to learn their many quirks, but Divekick handily subsides this somewhat with a story mode for each fighter. The AI is a tad on the easy side but these fights offer up a way to learn each character’s move list whilst unearthing their back stories via a handful of short motion comics.

Once you begin to play competitively against other people Divekick’s appeal is at its most discernible. Whether you’re playing locally with friends for a laugh or displaying your high-level skills in a ranked match, Divekick’s mechanics and use of basic fighting game concepts translate well to any environment. Some may write it off because of its simplistic control scheme and visual style but they would be missing the point. It may have slightly deviated from its original design to welcome the uninitiated to the genre – the many, many knowing references reveal a game that’s meant for the fighting game community more than anyone else – but the added depth proves welcome, even if it requires a little more understanding. Divekick is still all about that one moment, there’s just a little more nuance along the way.

If you strip a fighting game down to its most essential parts, you get Divekick, and as an excercise in game theory - this is awesome. And even better, the game has a cult following that really takes it seriously. There is much, much more complexity going on then you'd first think. This is great. The game feels polished and is well crafted.

My problem with the game - our group only finds it *mildly* fun in very short play sessions. We'd just as soon play any number of other regular local play games before this one. I am not sure why this is, to be honest - maybe because there is a large difference between lots of skill, and none. Our whole group is newbs with this title, and will probably stay this way.

If you plan on putting time into mastering this game (like a regular fighter), then I'd say go for it. If you are looking for something to pick up and play with a group of friends (ie. GangBeasts, TowerFall, Duck Game, etc.), I'd pass. Just make sure you understand what this game is, and isn't, before you buy.

Pros:
+Very polished, nice character design and artwork
+Awesome stripped-down fighting game design mechanics
+The community excitement is great to see
+Price is great
+Content is still being added

Cons:
-You are either really into this, or it just plays as a fighting game that is too simple to enjoy

Look, the game is great for those that want to really get into this - but if you are looking for something to play as a drunken party brawler, I'd look elsewhere.

6.3/10 - 2 Button Combat At Its Finest!

Divekick is pretty fun for what it is, a simpler mortal combat like game with less moves and a very slight storyline. You can only jump, dive and kick so timing is everything; you play in the classic tournament style fights and progress your way to the top.

I was really looking forward to playing online, but after 7 minutes in queue I was unsuccessful. Perhaps at certain times there are players online and I'm sure it "kicks" ♥♥♥.

I wouldn't pay $5, more like $2 if you like simple combat games

What to expect from a game with only 2 buttons?

Well, you'd be really surprised.

Very basic fighting game. Extremely difficult to master. Lots of room for improvement in technique and skills.

Challenge your friends and randoms for hours.

Truly great.

Fun simple game that would be a great multi player fighting game but:

- There is only a handful of players, even with it just being recently bundled, so hard to get online game.
- The player you find find always appear to pick the lame Fencer character (Only character with ranged attack), Probably a cheap ♥♥♥♥ way to try and up their ranking.

As the single player "story" mode has as no depth at all what you are left with is potential with few players and the ones you do find are just lame.

UPDATED ON APRIL 23

A TIP FROM UNCLE SENSEI:
BUY THIS GAME. IT'S GREAT!

And why he says that? There's only two buttons: One to jump, and another to kick. You think this makes the game easy? WRONG!
I have to admit, I become very tense when playing this game; One hit and you're done for, KO! And In addition to that, you have to be fast or the timer runs out and the closer player to the middle of the arena wins.

Currently it looks like people are not playing this online anymore. However, you can buy this game to play locally with friends.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Update: If you want to get this game, get it for multiplayer. Singleplayer becomes ultimately boring after some time.

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..

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.
