“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.

  • Non-Stop Fighting Action. An extensive move list, advanced combo engine, and anti-gravity grabs
  • Multi-dimensional Platforming. Instantly swap between the Worlds of Living and Dead to traverse impossible terrain

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 each other with strings of combos. The game just succeeds on its own merits ... even as something greater than homage. Unlocked all achievements!

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is a co-op 2d beat 'm up.

It's very good beat 'm up with a great story mode.
They did a great job with the sprites, theme as music.
And this is very extended video game and fun for many hours.
It's supports co-op mode offline so like oldtimes... 2 controllers are needed.
I prefure controllers because I do no like playing these games with a keyboard.

I love this game.... so I give this a 9/10 score.

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 that M****. :P

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).

This is the kind of game you beat and then start a new save on Hard immediately. A game that once you get in the rhythm of it, you become a monster combo machine and it's so satisfying that by the end of it you can't help but demand more. Drinkbox put out an absolutely brilliant game that everyone should play through. I have about 5 times now across different platforms and I still can't get enough.
