    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!

    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

    - 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

    Overly referential with gameplay that doesn't go anywhere.

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

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