Guacamelee! on Sony PS Vita

Juan Aguacate, a former wrestler, now lives in quiet, Mexican town. At least until Carlos Calaca, the ruler of the dead world, kidnaps the mayor's daughter and his undead creatures overrun the living world. Juan stands no chance and is quickly killed off - but fortunately he finds a magical wrestling mask in the undead world which gives him power. Of course his new quest is to defeat Calaca and rescue the damsel in distress. The game uses a humorous style with numerous pop culture references.

Guacamelee! is a side-scrolling platformer with interconnected areas. It follows the Metroidvania style: Juan gains upgrades over time which allow him to overcome obstacles and reach new areas. Ultimately he gains the powers to explore the whole map and reach his final goal. While platforming is obviously an important of the gameplay, there is also a big focus on fighting enemies in melee combat. Each upgrade has to be used for both exploration and combat purposes because different enemies require different tactics to defeat. Examples for abilities are a dodging roll, transforming into a chicken or switching between the living and dead world which changes not only the optics, but also platforms and enemies.

Multiplayer allows co-op play for two players on one screen. When the gap between the players get too far and one leaves the screen, the character gets teleported back. The second character is the female Tostada.
