Guacamelee review | Thunderbolt

Michael Ormonde, Thunderbolt writes:
Juan is just a typical Mexican agave farmer. He spends his days toiling in the fields making an honest living. Thrust into the role of the hero when the evil Carlos Calaca kidnaps “El Presidente’s Daughter”, Juan vows to save his childhood beau. The initial rescue attempt does not go well, with Calaca quickly dispatching the would-be rescuer. Cast into the land of the dead, Juan is bestowed a mystical lucha libre mask, endowing him with profound wrestling abilities. With his new powers, Juan sets off after Calaca and his cohorts, hoping to thwart their diabolical master plan to merge both the living and dead worlds. Thus begins Guacamelee, Drinkbox Studio’s foray into the 2D side scrolling action genre which both iterates and innovates in equal measure. (Guacamelee, PS Vita) 9/10
