    Divekick Reveals Patch Notes for Latest Update

    A surprising new update arrives!

    Iron Galaxy Studios revealed the patch notes for the upcoming Divekick update on the game’s official Steam page. This new update fixes many issues that were found by the developers. This news comes from Iron Galaxy Studios’s official X/Twitter account.

    This is a relatively small update that adds some quality-of-life changes. Divekick hasn’t seen an update since 2015, so fans will surely appreciate this surprise. However, none of the developers confirmed if any more updates will be applied to the game.

    • Fixed a crash that would occur while a player would join a match while another player would be talking

    Additionally, here’s an overview of Divekick via its official Steam page:

    Overview

    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.
