"Showed at PAX East 2014 - We were immediately struck by the use of Mexican folklore - rarely (if ever!) seen in games. It plays wonderfully, too.""

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.

About This 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.

I loved this game, as it falls into my favorite genre of games: beat 'em ups. It's just like Guacamelee Gold Edition except a few new areas, enemies, and one new boss. However, since it is so much like its predecessor, I found the game to be very easy. A few arenas here and there gave me a few problems, but overall it was a cakewalk. The bosses are a joke and offer little to no challenge (except for the Jaguar boss, though I still think he was tougher in Gold Edition.) Overall, I liked playing the game again; I just wish it offered more difficulty.

8/10

Weird that it's an entirely new game when it's practically just an update to Gold Edition.

I got this game basically for free on a trade. In a nutshell, the game is awsome. But you really SHOULDN'T buy this version, It's a small update for the gold edition being sold as a game. NASTY, RIDICULOUS... Among every nasty policy I've been seeing, this one is the most EVIL. I bought the Gold Edition and I regret a supported a Mafia.

My recommendation for this game:

COMPLETELY ABSOLUTELY VERILY YES!!!

Get it.
It's unique.
It's well crafted.
It will teach you stuff on the way. And very forgiving for the most part.
Controls are tight and you don't need to worry about fiddly widdly things.

Best part of the game is its culturally immersive setting. I'm not a Native Mexican in any way. And this whole game provided a whole lot of newness to me.

Live in the Americas? No problem! Still plenty enjoyable for its awesome gameplay alone.

Think about it.

You start out as a burly guy, then a strong luchador, then you become...

LUCHAGOD!

By the time you get to the end of the game you will feel awesome.

I just finished this game on co-op and I gotta say it's some of the most fun I've had in a long time. It took us about 7 hours to beat even with the two of us. You pretty much play as a super-hero luchador in a beat-em-up style game trying to save your princess. There is tons of secrets, in which you don't unlock the 'true ending' unless you find them all. You can also unlock different costumes which gives you different benefits and you can upgrade your skills. I played most of the game with the Diablo suit which kind of made it like hard mode even on easy.

I gotta say this game really did remind me of the old-school games and some of the music even sounded alot like Mario and other games. Enemies were decently hard to beat without being too difficult, but keep in mind I did have another player helping me. Storyline is decent and there is tons of humor in the game also. It's kinda like they took everything people love about indie games and put it into this game.

Co-op design is fairly decent but the camera kinda sucks as it will only follow player one instead of expanding. Every time you die you have a timer to wait to come back and when you do you're a little orb that floats around until your teammate releases you. I felt this made the co-op fair without being too much struggle. Pretty much a fun co-op experience that adds mild difficulty to great teamwork gameplay. Coordinating certain platforming can be incredibly hectic though and we usually just let one person do all the platforming at the hard parts because it was too hard with two people to do.

Co-op is also somewhat buggy... I have a screenshot where instead of dying, me and my buddy just have 3 copies of ourselves each...

I will probably replay the hell out of this game until I unlock all of the achievements. I can't really say too much bad about the game in all honestly so I would have to give the game somewhere around a 4.5/5.

Best game ever to become chicken and run pass enemy 10/10. Haha joking.

To be honest I don't have a good time with brawl games quite a long time ago and this one really surprised me.

Cool story check ✓
Beautiful artwork check ✓
Flawless control / Don't need to freaking press one goddam key like other brawl game check ✓
A very awesome little detail like switch the world, cool easter egg and parody reference check ✓

I bought from humble bundle but I can garuntee for sure. This game is TOTALLY worth it with full price.
What are you waiting for? Put that in your cart now.
