Fighting games have always been great for spectators, from Street Fighter II in the arcade to crazy Mortal Kombat fatalities at a slumber party. Divekick, a two-button (dive and kick) fighting game, skips the boring 99 percent of the fight and jumps right to the final, pulse-pounding moment.
The first fighter to land a blow wins the round. The only way to move is to jump and kick, which vaults you backward. This technique is also the only way to attack and evade.
Despite the simple and humorous gameplay, the game gets complicated, with 13 characters, each possessing different jump heights, attributes, and special powers. Rounds may last less than 10 seconds, but you won’t be able to look away.
