Mexican wrestling and Metroidvanias aren’t an obvious pairing, but Guacamelee! makes it seem as natural a marriage as tortilla chips and… salsa. The callbacks to its predecessors are maybe a little too obvious (protagonist Juan must discover Choozo statues, where Samus found Chozo statues) but there’s no denying the game’s boundless creativity and personality. Where else could you gain both the ability to cross between the land of the living and the realm of the dead, and the power to turn into a chicken at will? Tight, clever level design is complemented by exuberant wrestling bouts against hordes of multi-coloured skeletons, and a charmingly ridiculous story.
