‘Guacamelee’ Review | StickSkills

StickSkills said, "There just aren’t enough Metroidvania games inspired by spicy Mexican folklore on the market. Average 2D platformers that brandish vivid art styles and free exploration are a dime a dozen, but how often do we see one that slaps a colorful lucador mask over the hero’s face? Toronto-based developer DrinkBox Studios does just that with its PSN-exclusive title Guacamelee. But it’s not just this one aesthetic flair that makes the game a success. Instead, the quest of the valiant Juan Aguacate is worth experiencing because it never stops being fun. Guacamelee doesn’t innovate with its beat-‘em-up nature and emphasis on backtracking to discover new secrets, but its wacky tone and unique setting give it a flavor all its own." (Guacamelee, PS Vita, PS3) 4/5
