    Drinkbox studios took an already great game, and made it that much better.

    If you’ve never heard of words like “metroidvania” and “beat-‘em-up”, Guacamelee! is an excellent entry point for you.

    Overly referential with gameplay that doesn't go anywhere.

    One of the best side scroll games I'v ever played
    Lovely challenging combat - great art style - upgrades all over the walk through and some good secrets and hard places to beat.
    The game deserves 9.5 if they added more bosses and make it longer it will be a perfect game .
    We needs more games like Guacamelee!

Especially if you play it coop. I enjoy playing it with my girlfriend and it was worth every penny spent on it. The level design is excellent, the jokes and references are funny and fun to discover, the mechanics, while nothing really new, are interesting. They added enemy with shields that require special combos so that you don't end up always spamming the same attacks, and that's excellent. The only negative is that the game seems pretty short.

    Overall impression: Very original and satisfying Metroidvania style side scroller beat 'em up

    Being a fan of the Metroid series, I appreciated the effort to keep in the same vein without completely ripping them off. I liked to the tongue and cheek references too.

    Great atmosphere. Mexican theme, colourful graphics, fun music, humorous dialogue. Very unique in the best of senses. Story is basic but solid: Doesn't take itself too seriously.

    Game play is also very original. You'll enjoy discovering all the abilities and rediscovering new ways to wonder through the map.

    It's overall just a fun game. Not too long, but with all collectibles and challenges you'll get a solid 10 to 15 hours out of it.

    + Entertaining gameplay that blends its combat mechanics well with its platforming mechanics
    + Elegant game systems that create a smooth flow curve
    ? Silly story and characters are amusing at face value, but provide little depth and could land flat for some
    ? The character feels heavy and requires incredibly precise inputs overcome difficult challenges, which could feel weird for platforming fans
    - World-swapping mechanic is at times amazing and at times very frustrating, making the gameplay more similar to a rhythm-based button execution system than typical platforming

    The discount for owning the original is only 66% with makes it cos't 2,5€ more than on ps4.

Don't know if it's because valves 1$=1€ policy or what but I bought a pc to get cheaper games. For faulty pricing I have to take a couple of points.
    The game itself is great and if you haven't played the original you should try this. Best platforming betemup since 90' and it has co-op!
