To make a good guacamole all you need is avocados, lemon juice, a little bit of garlic and a lot of brute force. Likewise Guacamelee! takes Metroidvania style exploration, Lucha Libre Wrestling, a little bit of comedy and a lot of brute force to create the best game inspired by Mexican folklore since The Grim Fandango."
