CGM Reviews: Guacamelee

Guacamelee — a game in which a Mexican wrestler can transform into a chicken to reach hidden areas, where he might learn from his mystical goat master how to suplex skeletons in sombreros.
Sure, it may sound like someone drank too much tequila out in the hot sun, but it’s also one of the best indie experiences on your Playstation 3 or PS Vita. The creation of Toronto-based developer DrinkBox Studios, Guacamelee is a 2-D beat-’em-up platformer, in which new abilities give you access to new parts of a vivid, mazelike world. The genre is commonly known as “Metroidvania,” and the game’s influences become obvious after you break your first “Choozo” statue or run into the mosaic of Simon Belmont. (Guacamelee, PS Vita, PS3) 87/100
