From the review, "Mexican art is fascinating. There’s such detail in every piece and everything feels vibrant and alive. Even pieces created specifically for the Dia de los Muertos celebrations, celebrating the day of the dead and depicting skeletons, are enthusiastically bright and alive. There’s nothing like it, and Drinkbox’s Guacamelee! captures the overall ambiance perfectly. I’d go so far as to say this isn’t just one of the best Metroidvania games I’ve played in recent years, it’s one of the prettiest. It is a celebration, to be sure, of both fine gaming and stylish design."
