[Review Revisited] Guacamelee
Become the Mexican Hero in Guacamelee and battle your way through hordes of the dead as you try and save your girlfriend from an evil reanimated monster! Strap on your boots and mask on as you learn how Lucha Libre might just save the day. Time to check our Guacamelee review!
With Drinkbox dropping a collection of their games on the Vita this week at a low price of $24.99, including the new and awesome Severed, along with Mutant Blobs Attack, and Guacamelee, I thought it would be a great week to discuss a seminal classic in Guacamelee. FYI: I actually have 100% trophies from Mutant Blobs Attack and platinumed both Severed and Guacamelee – you should aim to get these platinum trophies.
Guacamelee is the story of Juan, a poor guy who is murdered by a crazy villain who is trying to destroy the world of the living and the dead. Once dead, Juan is given the option in the world of the dead to become a hero!
From here you can switch between the world of the living and the dead, learn cool new moves that allow you to access different areas, and work on beating this hard platformer that will make you want to throw your controller or Vita in frustration. The game is a Metroidvania title which is one of my favorite genres, and I definitely liked Guacamelee.
Drinkbox just recently released Severed on the Vita, and will soon be bringing it to Nintendo touch devices – the 3DS and Wii U. So what is next for their plans after that I am not sure, but I can’t wait to see what it is. Fingers crossed for Guacamelee 2!
