"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.""

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????*

Guacamelee! STCE is an enhanced version of Guacamelee! Gold Edition that adds in two huge new levels, an explosive new ‘Intenso’ power mode, 4-player local co-op support and more. You’ll need to use every bit of your skill and power to defeat STCE’s new challenges (including a scheming new boss- El Trio de la Muerte), in addition to everything the original game's sprawling world has to throw at you.

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. 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.

A solid platformer filled with puns and references to well-known games. Fans of beat 'em ups won't be disappointed being able to violently thrash enemies into eachother with strings of combos. The game just succeeds on its own merits ... even as something greater than homage. Unlocked all achievements!

My recommendation for this game:


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...


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.

This is absolutely wonderful game.
The graphics and visual effects look really great and cartoonish.
The music is very catchy too.
However...... It's a little.... Short.
Get this if you love beating skeletons and monsters up.
You won't regret it (unless you are a skeleton).

I recommend getting this game.

This is a really enjoyable platformer. It is witty, funny, gorgeous, and feels great to play even on a keyboard (a bit of training required, and lots of missed keys).

The controls are smooth and the combos are neatly chained and impactful.

My only qualm is that the skins are tied to power-ups and disadvantages. Sometimes I just wanted to enjoy some look but its bonuses aren't as good or my playstyle as other skins, so I just used Diablo and the monster one, mainly.

Played 2 games, normal and hard:
1st playthrough, about 10 hours, 100% completion;
2nd playthrough, hard mode, about 4 hours, rushed. I really wish hard was available from the beginning, it added some needed challenge. I played a second time mainly for the achievement, but I would've enjoyed the game a lot more in one full hard mode playthrough.
100% achievements (second run in hard-mode required).
