Guacamelee! Review: Back from Hell | Polygon

Polygon: "There are plenty of retro-themed 2D releases mining 8- and 16-bit nostalgia and concepts, but very few are crafted with Guacamelee’s expertise. If you stripped away the knowing winks at other games, it would still be noteworthy. 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’s influences has produced more than homage; Guacamelee is remarkable on its own." (Guacamelee, PS Vita, PS3) 9/10
