Guacamelee! - Official Trailer
Aug 19, 2013So I definitely think Guacamelee! is worth picking up if you haven’t done so yet. If you missed out on the PSN version, or hell, just want to play through the game again, it’s well worth checking out. This remains one of the more impressive independent releases this year, and certainly makes me curious to see what developer Drinkbox Studios is working on next.
Aug 15, 2013As a big fan of games like Castlevania and Metroid, this genre is right up my alleyway. Sadly, nowadays I lack the time and patience to take on new games of this genre in an adequate manner. Thus, Guacamelee! was a welcomed exception. The classic gameplay, stylish comic-design and excellent humor were exactly what I needed. The fact that Guacamelee! got such a good PC-port was only the cherry on top. So if enjoy metroidvania-games in the slightest, has to check out Guacamelee!.
Aug 11, 2013Timeraider's Review Time:
2d sideview platformer/massive fighting Gamplay: 9/10 Graphics: 8.5/10 Performance: 8.5/10Timeraider's Review Time:
2d sideview platformer/massive fighting
Emotional attachment/ general immersion: 10/10
General score: 9/10
I am usually not the guy to play sideview fighters, especially chaotic ones. However this game it deserves everything. The graphics are great and fit the gameplay.. not to detailed and slightly cartoony, while maintaining the resolution and graphical advancements found in the newer games.
The gameplay is great it has nice performance on even weak PC's and the game just feels very smooth. Pressing 30 buttons per second will happen, but it wont show even the slightest microstutter on the screen.. its all fluid and smooth.
The storyline is very immersive (ive heard people actually pinked away a tear and i myself felt touched at some moments to so far) and the game keeps you in a tight lock im known for never finishing games, which is a trait alot of gamers suffer from. However since ive started playng this game im stuck to the screen and will certainly finish this (will be my third pc game ive ever finished in the last 8 years (others were Trine 2 and.. Star Wars Battlefront 2 i believe)...
This was my short recommendation. If you want a full review.. sorry but i dont do those.… Expand
Mar 20, 2014This game is amazing. The music and art style are both captivating. They work together well to create an unforgettable and unique experience.This game is amazing. The music and art style are both captivating. They work together well to create an unforgettable and unique experience.
The platforming at many stages is downright genius in that it will not only make you think, but often allow you to piece together a platforming solution on the fly. It is an intense experience that is not hindered by difficulty.
It's corny and humorous at times, which gives the game a personality all it's own. The game is downright charming.
This game also does not forget its roots and knows it's fan-base. It has plenty of Easter eggs that pertain to it's inspirations, which will only add more flavor and appeal to those that like this kind of game.
A must have for anyone who likes fun.… Expand

Illustrations and Colors are perfect, might be the best looking 2D game in a long time. If you find the combat or bosses in this game difficult, perhaps you need to train more at the 2D gym with the rooster.. which I did... then I dominated. Like SMB, there's going to be some Extra levels (outside of the game story) that will make you lose your mind. The only thing that sorta' pissed me off were the precise timing of moves (for extra levels) that don't necessarily work perfectly with an analog controller, but with repetition is doable.… Expand
Nov 11, 2016Oynaması inanılmaz zevkli ve gayet tatlı zorlukta bir oyun olmus diyebilirm. Oyunun kombo hareketleri var ve bunları oyunda ilerledikceOynaması inanılmaz zevkli ve gayet tatlı zorlukta bir oyun olmus diyebilirm. Oyunun kombo hareketleri var ve bunları oyunda ilerledikce ogreniyorsunuz ve her seferinde diğer eski ogrendiklerinizle birlestirerek bulmacaları gecmeye calısıyorsunuz. Aslında bulmaca derken kastettigim, uygun hareketleri sıra yapıp, yok ordan gec yok buradan ısınlan, suraya atla buraya tutun tarzında hafif zorluktalar bu tarz oyun oynamamıs bir kisinin bile cozebilecegi duzeydeler.
Bu atlama zıplama tarzındaki komboları o kadar eglence ve baglayıcı ki, yani bazen 3-5 yerde cok zorlanmanıza ragmen, bu yaratıcı ve guzel kombolarla oyuna baglanıyorsunuz. Oyunun son "Boss"unu belki 30-45 dk da kestim ama gene hic sıkılmadım devamlı denedim ve basardım. Bu arada "split screen" ozelligi ile bir bilgisayarda 2 kisi aynı anda oynayabiliyorsunuz arkadasınızla eglenebilrsiniz.
Oyunu gonul rahatlıgıyla alabilirsiniz ozellikle indirimde yakalarsanız kesin kacırmayın. Arastırdım ve en dusuk ise 4.5 lira oldugunu buldum sizlerle paylasıyorum. Simdiden iyi eglenceler.
Ozetle (+) ve (-)'leri;
+ Oyundaki kombolar veya hareketler inanılmaz eglenceli
+ 2 kisi "split screen" ozelligi yani bir bilgisayar monitorunde 2 kisi oynama ozelligi mevcut
+ İndirimde % 100 alınır

The game is full of action, adventure,Guacamelee! Its Guacamelee! A 2D action-platformer game inspired on Mexican traditions and folklore.
The game is full of action, adventure, puzzles and more. It can become a challenge for those who like me do not use a driver, which is recommended right from the start.
Graphically the game is very colorful and "cartoonish". The game also has a very interesting and fun soundtrack at good old mexican mariachi style.
Very fun experience that I fully recommend. Here is small YouTube vide with the first minutes of the gameplay if you wanna check it out: https://youtu.be/NK-auTVPnuM… Expand
Jun 17, 2017OK, this game is hard. The first boss fight (X 'tabay or however you spell it) is not too hard once you learn the patterns. The second fightOK, this game is hard. The first boss fight (X 'tabay or however you spell it) is not too hard once you learn the patterns. The second fight (flame face) was too easy and I first-attempted it. There are various sections of the game with gruelling horrible platforming sections that do not require much skill but patience. They are a cheap shot at making the game harder. You will find yourself clutching various buttons on your controller (or keyboard) at once, then messing up and pressing the wrong buttons. Breathe deep during these sections to reduce the risk of a panic attack... Once you finally beat these sections you feel rewarded... for about 30 seconds, then you are faced with another horrible section (ugghhhhhhhh). The third boss (Jaguar Javier) is SO FREEEKIN HARD. The game goes from -meh kinda medium difficulty- to -HAHAHA ALL THAT WAS JUST A TROLL NOW WE ARE GONNA GIVE YOU A BOSS WHICH YOU WILL ONLY GET 2 HITS ON BEFORE YOU DIE- diffuculty. All his attacks are fire so you cannot dodge them. He constantly gives himself shields which you neede to press some kind of combination which you are so likely to mess up, then he gets a hit on you. The annoying part is that you have a delay from being hit to getting back up again (which means as soon as you get back up again he sends you back down.
OK, enough of the cons. Aside from what I just mentioned the game is preeeeety cool. The open maps are fun to explore and the metroidvanian exploration, backtracking, opening new areas and exploring them is all a blast. Also the art style is cartoony and cool. I like it. Let's talk about the core of the game: the combat. It is polished and satisfying to whack skeletons and throw them aginst the roof, reducing them to a mere pile of bones. The El infierno stage of the game adds an extra challenge for completionists to unlock all of the characters. The storyline is not the strongest point of the game, it is a cliche story of an ordinary guy who becomes a superhero to save the world from monsters, except this time, it's set in Mexico. ¡Oh si! Burritos! The Soundtrack is catchy and fun, and the game is an (sorta) good time (apart from what i mentioned before...)
By the way, don't try to play this with a keyboard, you will spend half an hour just re-mapping the atrocious controls, only to make them a tiny bit less atrocious.
Verdict: This game is cool, but only get it if you are a fan of rock hard difficult games. If you are a fan of super metroid, try this game out. After all, it is metroidvania. For me however, what i hope to see in the future is an easy mode. Thank you for your time reading this long review.… Expand
