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????*

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 Mexican-flavoured Metroidvania, Guacamelee controls very tightly. Luchador-style throws and slams compliment the combo-heavy combat system, resulting in a chaotic color explosion of melee that's very satisfying.

Music, level design, puzzles, combat; all very, very well put together. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

I already played this game on Wii U, but I just re-bought it because I love it so much! The music, the little Easter eggs. A perfect Metroidvania

So, what if instead of a sexy blond babe in power armor, your were a mustachio'd luchador? And what if instead of blasting energy-sucking amoeba, you piledrive skellingtons into the ground? That's basically Guacamelee, a metroidvania with a healthy helping of spicy hot salsa.

Ok, so it's got the Mexican flavour gimmick. What else? How about those supertight controls for that unusually deep combat system for this type of game? Fabulous lucha action in well though-out levels? A surprisingly nice story with memorable characters? Maybe some excellent audiovisual design with a toe-tapping soundtrack? A sense of humor and plenty of Easter Eggs? Split Screen co/op? Chickens?

This game is a champ and probably the best metroidvania available on pc, save for maybe Axiom Verge.

I rate this game 5 out of 5 bananas.

I like this game. It's Metroid with no guns and instead of Samus, you're a lucha libre (did I spell that right? Should I google it? I could...)

Anyway, just about to smash the last boss in single player mode. I'm sure multi player is fun as well.

You just read a review, congratulationss

I must admit, I wanted it out of curiosity in the beginning, but I couldn't expect how much fun it could actually be.

The fighting system feels fast, responsive, and with a lot of potential for combos, and juggling enemies in the air. Each move you have has a specific purpose and is clearly differentiated from the others, creating a small yet varied set of tools at your disposal. Yet one can't help but think that a couple more moves wpuld help make battles more varied and interesting. The tactical side of things, later on with the addition of shielded and alternate dimension enemies you can't just take them all on at once, you have to be more methodical, to decide which targets are a priority, which should be knocked down for later.

The game can be pretty tactical, yet not so much so as to become slow or unenjoyable. The game doesn't ask you to make big plans about each fight, but to assess the situation and make on-the-fly choices to defeat you enemies in the most efficient, safe, fashion. And that makes it actually rather enjoyable.

Unfortunately, however, the difficulty from battles comes more from the ammount of enemies rather than the individual enemies themselves. They never really feel dangerous on their own right, all of them being rather slow and having pretty big tells for when they're going to attack, making it easy to avoid them. Instead, the danger comes from having to keep track of a lot of enemies at once. Yet, at the same time, it makes sense, since it helps keep the flow of the game, whereas single, difficult enemies might make it slower. Overall, the combat is good and has quite a lot of potential

The art style is indeed pleasing to the eye, it looks really colourful yet clean and simple. It's nice to look at and adds character to the game, it works with it, whereas a more realistic approach, at least in my opinion wouldn't have been half as charming

However, one thing the game does suffer from, is it's really short length. I finished the campaign in about ten hours, and I really took my time and 100%'d it. And while it's true that it's better to not overstay your welcome and instead leave a good memory, I'd say Guacamelee!, however, left too early, leaving you wanting more but without much else to do, as the game doesn't really have much in the way of post-game content, other than the El Infierno and Caverna del Pollo challenges. Granted the game does have a good ammount of exploration to do to get all the secrets, it rather goes by fast

Another small problem the game has, is it's lack of online co-op capabilities. While it's understanable that it could cause a lot of problems and frustration with an uncoodinated group, it would also be great fun when it worked. It would be a really nice feature to have when your friends aren't available for some Luchador action.

As I have rambled a lot, and with purpose of making the list more approachable, I'll include a list of pros and cons:

Pros:

+Very solid and entertaining fighting style that doesn't get old
+Well differentiated moveset where every move has its clear purpose
+Lots of enemies that make for varied encounters and strategies to beat them
+Colourful and clean artstyle that adds charm to the game and has just enough ammount of detail to not feel boring
+The enemies, thanks to the art style are inmediately recognizable, and thus you are rarely confused about what you should do
+A good amount of costumes, with their own effects, that allow even more variety in your battles, and in my opinion, look pretty nice
+Chickens

Cons:

-The game suffers from a really short length, leaving you wanting more with no real way to ease that craving
-Not much in the way of post-game content. It's a small game
-The movelist, although differentiated, is rather small. It could have done with some more moves
-The platforming requires good eye-hand coordination late-game. Can become frustrating if you have poor reflexes
-A little too heavy on the memes
-No online multiplayer support

The game, overall, is really good and I enjoyed it inmensely. I'm also impressed in how well the extra areas are included in the game, I didn't know they were add-ons until I looked them up due to how well integrated they are. The only real complain I have about the game is the short lenght. It's a small game, but a really good one. I would definitely recommend it
