For years we've waited for a metroidvania game that incorporated Mexican lucha libre culture into the story and gameplay, and Guacamelee finally brings that to life.
Pro Well executed pop-culture references as well as references of other titles
Pop-culture as well as other popular titles within the metroidvania and platformer genres are referenced throughout the game in various situations for comedic effect. And it's done in a very unobtrusive way as to not be annoying.
Con Controls on the keyboard don't work that well
The game is clearly designed with a controller in mind. Specifically, a mechanic that allows throwing enemies and various objects uses the analog stick to aim. Aiming using the keyboard is limited to 8 directions and is not sufficiently precise.
