    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!

Great combat, music, platforming, interesting bosses, and extra challenges make it a great game. The cartoon graphics and brawl combat make it stand out from others of the genre. Difficult but rewarding challenges.

    Able to remap keys so I could use keyboard.

    Main game took 9 hours. With extra challenges and achievement hunting, it took 21 hours.

    Got it free, but it is definitely worth $5 to $10. Highly recommended.

    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.

    GUACAMELEE! SUPER TURBO CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION
    The definitive guacamelee
    Guacamelee is a metroidvania meats brawler game where you play as a luchador that sets out to save the daughter of el president
    And the super turbo championship edition makes this must play classic even better, expanding its world, adding bosses, abilities story and adding in about 2 extra hours of gameplay
    So if you haven’t played guacamelee before, this is the version to get…
    This metroidvania took me around 6 and a half hours to complete and can be played with up to 4 player cooperatively…
    After hearing so many great things I as excited to go back and play this game before guacamelee 2 came out, and boy am I happy I did…
    admittedly guacamelee took so time to grow on me.. I didn’t instantly fall in love… at first I was a little confused why everyone loves it so much… sure the art style is nice and the game is full of humor.. But the gameplay, the platforming... it all felt super simple and button mashy… but as the game goes on it just gets better and better…
    no 2 hours of this game feels the same… the game slowly spoon feeds you new abilities that are mostly for traversing, allowing you to go back to past areas if you’d like for its collectables to help upgrade your health or endurance, but these also double as combat moves for the challenging and constantly engaging combat moments…
    the game increasingly gets challenging with both its platforming as well as with its enemies it introduces.. So you never feel like you’re just going through the motions... every minute of this game is engaging and keeps you hooked… there are costumes you can unlock to challenge you more or balance the character more towards your play style.. This is such a complete package from start to finish, a world that entices you to explore for its secrets, so many moments I would laugh out loud at the dialog, decently challenging bosses...
    I actually felt like bosses were more of the time to relax and breathe before you’re thrown back out into platforming through this world… guacamelee is wonderfully placed and is a must play game for platforming fans or metroidvania fans alike
    I give GUACAMELEE! SUPER TURBO CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION
    an 8.5/10

    Tier 2
    + 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
