Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition • Became a Chicken • 20G • 24.29% of gamers unlocked this
It’s been a while since I’ve fired up Guacamelee! It’s a game that I completed on Vita during my daily commute ages ago, and I’m fairly certain that I’ve made considerable progress on PC as well – so the incentive to get back into it is far-from-overwhelming. Nonetheless, I know that there’s a steady flow of achievements to be earned on it, and without the pressure of time today, I figured it was worth a bit of time to see where I could get up to.
Turns out, it was one of the most satisfying upgrades you can get in the game.
While the novelty of turning into a chicken makes for a bit of a giggle, it is the additional unlocks and puzzle mechanics that the chicken player-character adds that actually makes this a clever addition to an already-above average game. I could do with a little less combat as a chicken – though once you estabish the ability to turn back into a human (which isn’t long) then that sort of concern tends to just drift away.
It was nice to revisit Guacamelee! But more importantly, it was nice to make progress on it and get past the area where I was stuck for a little while. I might pop my head back in over the next few days just to see if I can get a bit further, plus it’s important to keep my combat skills – both of the poultry and the person variety – sharp.
