Divine Knockout is a third-person platform fighting game where you control one of the popular mythical gods. That said, developer Red Beard Games released a new update that introduced Sun Wukong to the game.

His main weapon is a staff that can be extended by an ability. Speaking of which, the Magic Cudgel ability allows Sun Wukong to extend his staff to poke enemies in front of him. Hitting an enemy with the tip of the staff not only deals damage but knocks them back as well. This is pretty good if you want to push enemies away from the platform.

The 72 Transformations is another one of Sun Wukong’s noteworthy abilities. He transforms into an animal depending on where the ability was activated. If used on the ground, he changes into a fearsome tiger, while activating this ability in the air transforms him into a soaring eagle. 72 Transformations is useful when you want to close in on your opponents with relative ease.

Sun Wukong can also create a clone of himself with his aptly named Monkey Clone ability. The clone can only use basic attacks, but what makes it useful is that Sun Wukong can swap places with it by using the ability again.

Aside from the new god, the latest update for Divine Knockout introduces the new Scuttleboat Scuffle map. This is a rather spacious arena where the fighter who controls the high ground has a good chance of winning.
