Divekick could be classified as a “minimalist” fighting game, or a fighting game parody. Or as just plain ridiculous. According to creator Adam “Keits” Heart, it started out as a joke, but grew into a seriously fun game. In Divekick, players only have two buttons: jump and kick. There is no means to block incoming attacks and little means of even controlling your direction of movement. What ensues is a slapstick game of physical humor dressed up in fighting-game visuals and tone.
After making the rounds at UFGT8 and CEO 2012, adoring fans have asked for a playable home version. Adam Heart has set out to kickstart the development of a Divekick PC port, which you can check out and contribute to here.
