Reviews

“Still the reigning champ.”
9.1 / 10 – IGN

“This is, by far, the best version of Guacamelee! you’re likely to see...”
A – Gaming Age

“Guacamelee Super Turbo Champion Edition offers one of the best-designed and most original takes on the well-worn metroidvania phenomenon you'll ever find.”
4.5 / 5 – US Gamer

Super? Turbo?? *Championship????*

STCE is a widely revamped version of the original Guacamelee!. Enjoy exploring two huge new levels, exploding into 'Intenso' power mode, and laying egg bombs as a chicken. You'll need every bit of power to dispatch a vicious new class of Elite enemies, a host of updated and rebalanced challenges in Normal and Hard modes, and the scheming new boss, El Trio de la Muerte.

To thank our fans, we're offering a deep loyalty discount off the price of STCE for owners of the original Guacamelee! Gold on Steam! We loved revisiting the game and making heaps of tweaks and additions we'd always wanted, and we hope you enjoy returning to it too.

About the Game

Carlos Calaca has kidnapped El Presidente's Daughter, and he plans to sacrifice her in order to merge the World of the Living with the World of the Dead.

Juan Aguacate, an agave farmer who stumbles upon a Legendary Luchador mask, must find the strength and courage to become the Hero he's always dreamed of being and put a stop to this.

Guacamelee! is a Metroidvania-style action-platformer set in a magical world inspired by traditional Mexican culture and folklore. The game features melee combat, parallel dimensions and same-screen co-op. The original Guacamelee! received wide critical acclaim and was a finalist for both IndieCade and the Independent Games Festival's Excellence in Visual Art award.

Guacamelee Gold was one of my favorite pick ups here and I'm glad they did not take long to bring the update here. This game is not only a worthy update but a good starting point for someone who has never played Guacameelee before. I know some people are upset about having to pay for an update but they packed a lot into this. 2 extra levels along with new secrets, intensio mode and my personal favorite a new set of Steam Trading Cards!!

The only negative I can say is my hands still haven't recovered from all the abuse I put them through last time to get 100% on the achievements. But what's a little carpal tunnel to enjoy more of this great universe.

You can Suplex a Chicken 11/10

No but to put on my Serious reviewer voice, this is the Improved version of Guacamelee, which comes with nicer looking effects for enemies, your special attacks cause camera shake etc and an "Intenso mode" which makes you super powered for a short time, plus comes with brand new content, plus a new boss (or should I say Trio of bosses), it is a great little upgrade to an already amazing Metroidvania brawler. plus its also a great deal at 66% off for those who owned the other version of Guacamelee,

Downside however is that because it is a new game rather than an expansion/patch for the original version, you will need to start again from the start, but its fun seeing what new additions/Graphics they added in this version.

p.s. the screens when you get powerups are no longer Seizure Inducing, so you wont be blinded by flashy colours when playing in the dark.

Since I reviewed Gold Edition previously, I'm going to focus on the differences and new content here. See my thoughts on why I enjoyed this game so much here http://steamcommunity.com/id/Soupinator/recommended/214770

Super Turbo Championship Edition is essentially a significant content DLC on top of Gold Edition, but since it makes so many changes to the game it is sold as standalone with a discount for previous owners. Loading up a Gold Edition savegame simply would not work so if you started the game in Gold Edition you will have to start over in this one. It adds two new large areas with new gameplay mechanics, adds a bunch of new enemy types (elite versions of existing enemies with new abilities,) some new graphical effects (heat distortion and shadows,) a new rage mechanic for combat, pollo bombs!, and reworks all the fights in the game. There may be other changes I can't think of at the moment.

While none of the new content is strictly necessary to enjoy the game, I found it well worth the $5 upgrade. The new areas are a lot of fun and quite unique compared to the rest of the game and are integrated seamlessly with the story. The INTENSO rage mechanic works well as a panic button letting you recover from a fight that's going badly, and that does become necessary. The fight rework in addition to the new enemies makes the game significantly more difficult which I appreciated but others may not. In some fights they went a bit too far though, covering the screen with enemies, removing all sense of strategy and turning the combat into a spamfest.

So which version should you buy? I would definitely recommend this one, with the caveat that you may find it too difficult.

One of the best platformer/Beat-them-up just got upgraded. new attacks, new enemies, new bosses, new levels, new modes, new skins and a graphical improvement, this is really worth getting if you didn't play the original version. if you have the original you get a 66% discount which is good but i still think it should be an optional DLC that sells for 2 Dollars. of course i understand many people won't buy it because they played the original and they shouldn't buy it, but as for me its just that i wanted a reason to replay Guacamelee again so i bought this.

Guacamelee is awesome. It's got impressive art style, gameplay is tight and music is great.

The best part of it is combat system. It's fluid and fast. You combine regular kicks and special moves into spectacular combos, finishing of enemies with piledrivers, throws and slams. Dodging is easy, so combat in this game is more about fun then frustrating challenge(unless you'll go for OPTIONAL stuff to get achievments).

Platforming gets gradualy more difficult and more creative as you learn new moves, but it won't be a problem(unless you'll go for OPTIONAL stuff to get achievments).

The world is huge and different, all areas are themed. Exploring it and finding hidden chests with upgrades is fun. Sometimes to get to the chest you'll have to beat platforming puzzles, sometimes combat challenges. There're also some side quest, which are mostly there for comedy reasons. Guys at Drinkbox generaly have a good sense of humor. You'll find a lot of references to your favourite indie and childhood games.

The plot is simple, yet characters are different and weird(in a good way). Every big area ends with a boss fight of sort. I don't know, the game is generaly crafted so well, I'd call it a masterpiece. Go get it!

PS. I've beaten Gold Edition and now replaying this version on a Hard Mode.
