Info over het spel

Guacamelee! Gold Edition is a Metroid-vania style action-platformer set in a magical Mexican inspired world. The game draws its inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore, and features many interesting and unique characters.

Guacamelee! builds upon the classic open-world Metroid-vania style of games, by adding a strong melee combat component, a new dimension switching mechanic, and cooperative same-screen multiplayer for the entire story. The game also blurs the boundaries between combat and platforming by making many of the moves useful and necessary for both of these.

Travel through a mystical and mysterious Mexican world as a Luchador using the power of your two fists to battle evil. Uncover hidden wrestling techniques like the Rooster Uppercut, and Dimension Swap to open new areas and secrets.

Guacamelee, I think this is one of the best game i have encountered in the last couple years. i am not a big fan of buying games and then get disapointed. so i gave this game a shot since a friend told me to. and after playing it non-stop for the past 13 hours and got 101% i felt to give my share back, so instead going on humble bundle i decided to buy the game for the full price since it is one of the best things that happened to videogames. other developers, take notes. this game is amazing ♥♥♥♥n 10/10 etc errthing dawg swag. they made me play it 5 minutes on steam before i could comment it >=(

Also, the music is amazing.

Before I got this game, I had already heard much praise for this game. People were raving mad about it, but it never really piqued my interest. Then it was available in a humble bundle, and I decided to get it and play it.

Holy ♥♥♥♥, is this an enjoyable game. Guacamelee! is a Metroidvania-style Lucha Libre Beat 'em Up with the added mechanic of switching between two worlds. The controls are tight, the fighting feels extremely satisfying, and the game in general feels challenging, but fair. This especially carries over well to the Challenge mode, which are extremely challenging, but allows some margin of error.
There is a fair amount of platforming in the game, particularly when going for the 100%, but it doesn't get in the way. This is primarily thanks to the fact that all special fighting moves that are unlocked in the game are helpful during the platforming segments. This eases up the transitions between the fighting and the platforming.
Furthermore, perfecting the game achievement wise is absolutely doable. It's not easy, but it's not hard either. It's challenging, and can all be earned with a bit of patience and practice.

I finished my first playthrough in about 6 hours, which left out about half of the side quests, most of the collectables, and all of the challenges. Completing all challenges, collecting all remaining orbs and chests, doing the rest of the side quests, and earning all remaining achievements except hardmode ones took me an additional 6 to 7 hours. Completing the game a second time on hard took me 4 hours. And I enjoyed every minute of it.

Some people might be less enthused about hardmode being locked until you finish the game on normal, but there's a workaround for that, as can be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=168142136

The soundtrack on this game is excellent as well, which I have now added to my usual playlist.

One final thing though: screw those skeletons in the yellow ponchos. Bloody annoying buggers.

Guacamelee! is a colorful 2D action platformer by Canadian developer DrinkBox set in a vibrant and thoroughly unique world inspired by Mexican folklore. The players take over the role of an agave farmer Juan who becomes a luchador after El Presidente’s Daughter is kidnapped by a charro skeleton Carlos Calaca. It’s as zaney as it sounds, but it just works. The story is basic and presented only in text, the writing isn’t great, but you’ll get a few chuckles out of it here and there.

The first thing you’ll notice are the fantastic audiovisuals that set the tone beautifully. The game world is a wonderful fusion of vibrant colors and cheerful music. The soundtrack is simply awesome, it sounds as if a house DJ remixed a mariachi band. Both of these elements come together to create a game world that is simply a joy to explore.

Considering that Juan is a luchador, the combat is melee-based – as the game title itself suggests. It starts off very basic with only a few moves, but you will unlock a healthy amount of varied and satisfying special moves during the course of the game. These are mostly wrestling moves such as the body slam or the headbutt. Different enemies will require different tactics and moves and they will sometimes be color-coded which means that only a specific attack can hurt them. Also, the game will at one point introduce a dimension-shifting mechanic which will alternate between the living and the dead worlds. Certain enemies can only be beaten in a specific dimension. Once the game starts throwing enemies in different colors and dimensions, the combat gets incredibly frenetic and intense due to the amount of stuff you need to consider. The fast-paced combat feels good thanks to sharp controls and the variety of moves at your disposal. Guacamelee! is a really tough game and you have to be vigilant at all times as you will often get beaten to a pulp. But it just feels so good that I always felt compelled to keep trying and get it right.

Outside of combat, there’s a fairly nice-sized world to explore full of secrets to find. But it will be incredibly hard getting to those goodies. This is where the platforming and dimension swapping come into its own. Certain platforms, walls or columns will only be visible in a certain dimension and the game will often make you switch dimensions mid-jump. It can get pretty nerve-wracking as the game demands pinpoint precision. Once again, the stellar controls make it worthwhile to persevere even though the fiendish difficulty will try its best to break your spirit.

Guacamelee’s retro design is both its strength and weakness. There’s no question that the design is strong, but it will at times give in to needless trial and error drowning the player in frustrating repetition. It will also feel cheap at times with enemies that will strike in moments when you really can’t do anything. But the sense of accomplishment is great indeed. I would say that a game like this is more enjoyable on the second run. Once you’ve unlocked all your powers and moves, the level of frustration drops down significantly.

In the end, Guacamelee! does what it sets out to do masterfully. Despite the overly punishing difficulty and a few design quibbles, it’s a great game worth playing for its fantastic world, frenetic combat and satisfying platforming.

8 OUT OF 10 (GREAT)

This game is great. It has a wonderful Metrovania level design, unique graphics, great music and a twisted sense of humour. The gameplay is really challenging on all levels and the checkpoint system makes it perfectly fair. If you like beat 'em ups and/or platformers you have to give it a try. This game is a true gem :)
