About this game

Developer: DrinkBox Studios
Content Rating: Everyone10+


Guacamelee! is a Metroid-vania style action-platformer set in a magical Mexican inspired world. The game draws its inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore, and features many interesting and unique characters. Guacamelee builds upon the classic open-world Metroid-vania style of games, by adding a strong melee combat component, a new dimension switching mechanic, and cooperative same-screen multiplayer for the entire story. The game also blurs the boundaries between combat and platforming by making many of the moves useful and necessary for both of these.

In an age where we don’t see these kinds of games crafted with such passion anymore, or even barely at all, Drinkbox Studios saw an opening, capitalized on it, and sent Guacamelee frog splashing its way into my heart. It’s not perfect but it's damn close to it, and I’ll be cursed by chicken magic if this isn’t one of the greatest games on PSN—and certainly the Vita. Viva Drinkbox Studios. Viva Guacamelee!

Guacamelee! is well worth picking up and adding to any gaming collection. Guacamelee! is an incredibly crafted game, throwback or not with each and every element as well crafted as the last. Fantastic combat, a hilarious storyline, memorable bosses, and challenging platforming are all present and working at peak efficiency in Guacamelee!. This is a must-have for retro-gaming fans and modern gamers alike. Play it.

The game is brilliant, but it's also steeped in a kind of defensive, referential irony that says "don't take me seriously," when it should be upping the stakes.
