First-rate Metroidvania action adventure, with a unique visual style and ascetic. Very flavorful, very polished. Lots of fun.

There are plenty of retro-themed 2D releases mining 8- and 16-bit nostalgia and concepts, but very few are crafted with Guacamelee expertise. ..The team at Drinkbox has studied the greats, but they've forged their own path with a consistent, engaging art style, and meticulously perfected controls and level design. This passion for Drinkbox influences has produced more than homage; Guacamelee is remarkable on its own.

You’ll find yourself performing uppercuts instead of dashing till you get the hang of some quirky and cramped choice of control layout. So whether you’re a newbie or an old-hand, Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition is well worth the download. It might be a slow month for brand new games, but it’s a great month for good games and this just proves it.

Guacamelee is a fusion of intense platforming and beat-em-up combat, framed in Metroidvania conventions and topped off with a memorable cast, distinct setting, a stellar soundtrack, and zesty humor. These ingredients combine to make for a flavor that’s genuinely fresh and incredibly satisfying. If you’ve had a taste of this delicious entre before and are wondering whether Super Turbo Charged Edition spices things up enough to warrant seconds, the answer is yes.
