The Game Guy
“Guacamelee” was among my ten favorite games of last year. The platforming beat ‘em up gameplay infused with “Metroid”-esque level progression was close to gaming perfection. Now a year later, Drinkbox Studios’ “Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition” ties up loose ends and is packed with a ton of content like a delicious grande burrito. This is the definitive version of “Guacamelee,” and it is spectacular.
This new version is like “Guacamelee 1.5.” It includes all the DLC from the first game, plus it adds new enemies, areas, a new boss and some gameplay enhancements like a life bar above each enemy. This is the version for newcomers to play, but there’s enough new content to make it worth revisiting for returning fans, too.
