Oftentimes I'll use this text space in my Mario fights as a soapbox to talk about games I like and this will definitely be the case with Guacamelee.
Man, what a great, great game. The Metroid blueprint lies at the heart of it so if you're into those games you're in good hands. The combat is what took me by surprise though because it can be as enjoyable and challenging as only the best Devil May Cry games can. You have to constantly be aware of every enemy on the screen and be ready to fend them off and attack appropriately. Sprinkle in some luchador stuff, lovely art design, tons of cool references and a really colorful, enticing world and you've got Guacamelee. Go get it!
I completed this piece in a handful of hours. I usually ration out whatever I'm working on over the course of a few days but this came together almost immediately. I always look for an excuse to put in a Mario suit in one of these but, thankfully, the game already has a great Mario luchador costume so I used that.
And hey, I made another progress animation! Have a look: sebastianvonbuchwald.com/blog/…
Good times with this game for sure.
