Review: Guacamelee! (DarkZero)

"Once upon a time, 2D platformers were the most dominant genre on the videogame market, with nearly every publisher trying to ride on the coattails of Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog with their own “me too” knockoffs. It was a genre as prevalent then as first-person shooters are today. But with the increasing popularity of indie games as well as the digital efforts from second- and third-party studios, 2D gaming has steadily been making a return to form, albeit in a more experimental variety than what was seen in the past. How long can developers continue to experiment with the second dimension before unique adventures like Super Meat Boy and Limbo begin to grow tiresome?" (DarkZero) (Guacamelee, PS3) 9/10

This little beauty will be in my Vita very soon..!

More great work from DrinkBox. Mutant Blobs was one of my favourite early Vita titles and yet was also cheapest?! :)
