About

This is a game in the action platformer genre with Metroidvania elements, developed by the Canadian studio DrinkBox Studios. This is the third game in the studio's portfolio.

The player gains control over the protagonist - an ordinary Mexican farmer named Juan Aguacate, who seeks to save the daughter of El Presidente and the love of his life from the hands of the evil skeleton charro named Carlos Calaca. To do this, he puts on the mask of the wrestler and bares the torso. The main character has several special moves, for coins from the defeated monsters you can buy upgrades for these moves and the skills. New abilities the main character receives after the opening of Chozo Statues. Some of them will give him new movements in combat. Other abilities will allow reaching previously inaccessible places on the level.

A separate element of the gameplay - boss-fights, each with a separate puzzle. And the new techniques and capabilities of the character open during the gameplay. The game became so popular that Juan Aguacate appeared in several projects from third-party developers and the developers of Guacamelee! together with IndieBox released a limited number of physical copies of the game for collectors.

Guacamelee! reviews and comments

Boring Metroidvania that cares more about a bland ass combat system than it does actual exploration or upgrade systems. Doesn't help than they "humor" is basically a bunch of actual rage faces and outdated references.
delightfully entertaining with solid combat
A delightfully entertaining game with a simple story, lots of mexican stuff in it, and simply one of the best platformers ever made. Great bosses,catchy soundtrack, creative mechanics, plus it is cheap.
This is a very charming and colourful game with delightful music. It is a straightforward "metroidvania" but with lots of Mexican spicy toppings. The humor and references might seem a bit too cheesy, but it doesn't spoil the game. It took me about 16 hours to finish (no rushing) to find all secrets and reach the "good ending". So it is well worth this time and the price.
Turns out there was a way to sacrifice president's daughter in order to take both the living and dead worlds? Nice lifehack.

But maybe it works only in Mexico.
«Ugly as my life»
Must-have platformer game on Vita and on other consoles. Great narrative, colourful levels, cool characters, awesome music!
