GDC Impressions: Divekick

The enthusiasm for Divekick at Sony's PlayStation Indie Arcade on Monday astounded me. Divekick utilizes two buttons and a health bar that means absolutely jack shit. One hit and you're dead, plain and simple. Get kicked in the head? HEADSHOT explodes on the screen. Get kicked in the nuts? NUTSHOT.

The stupidity inherent in Divekick's design is only matched by the joy you feel when you dominate an opponent five to nothing. At Sony's event, the developers showed off their custom Divekick arcade pad, which honestly felt more like two great big breasts you could tap to make your crudely drawn avatar... jump and kick.

Seriously, that's all there is to the game. What more can I say? Who is this for?!
