Stick Skills: "The most daunting aspect of a fighting game is easily the learning curve. As the genre has evolved, games like Marvel vs. Capcom have created this mythical idea of what a fighting game is. There’s always going to be insanely complicated combos, and there’s always going to be the element of “learning” a game. While there is definitely truth to that statement, many treat it as a reason to avoid fighting games outright. Divekick, with its comical dedication to simplicity, tears away the complicated layers built atop the genre over the years. It creates an approachable game that teaches players concepts without them even realizing, and it does so with a knowing smile the entire time."
