Divekick is a fighting game with a twist. Each player only has two buttons. The buttons can be used to dive and kick. Like other fighting games there are various different characters all with different moves. Characters are K.O.-ed by a single hit so discretion is required. The game features thirteen characters and a story mode for each. Online players can play both in ranked and unranked matches.
A later update adds a new character called Johnny Gat (from the Saints Row series), bringing the total characters to fourteen, and a new stage called Da Beech. Next to bug fixes and changes to the fighting systems, it adds a traditional menu mode, blind selection for the ranked play, and over 180 new Tips from Uncle Sensei. It also contains a vast amount of balance changes for each character. This update, called Addition Edition, is provided for free to all owners for all available platforms. It also changes the game's title. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version were launched as that edition upon release.
