Month after month, PS Plus subscribers have a healthy rosta of "free" games (mainly indies with the odd AAA title thrown in) and this month is no different.
The combat is smooth, responsive and has good flow, as the system is geared towards getting bigger combos to increase the score rewarded. There is also a good amount of variety to combat as various strings of button presses unleash different wrestling moves. However, whilst the combat is good, like almost every other platformer, Guacamelee can sometimes fall prey to platforming sections that frustrate because they are difficult to traverse.
Guacamelee is also a relatively short game, taking a few hours to complete. It's short run time works to its advantage, as it further adds to the laidback style that the game carries itself within; it's short, sweet and relatively easy to play. A shorter playtime also adds some replayablitiy value as you can purchase different costumes that change your playstyle and that means you can unlock trophies you might have missed first playthrough (if trophy completion is your thing).
So if you haven't tried Guacamelee yet, please give it a try; it's sweet and zany and colourful and an absolute gem of a game. Plus it's free... kinda. Play it before it gets taken off the roster, you won't be disappointed.
