Guacamelee! is a Metroidvania-style game where players play as Juan, a Mexican farmer who has been imbued with a magical luchador mask, and is tasked with saving the president's daughter who has been kidnapped by a skeletal demon. There is a light world/dark world component, with players using portals to switch between the two "worlds" (and later doing it on the fly) to fight enemies and traverse levels. The game can be played either solo or cooperatively, with the first player controlling Juan and the second playing a woman known as Tostada. The game was funded through Sony's Pub Fund program.
Combat consists of melee attacks, such as punches, grapples and throws. There are also other moves to unlock that help traverse the environment such as uppercuts, ground pounds and turning into a chicken. Players get coins for killing enemies, and can spend these coins at the store to get more moves, improved stamina, and higher health. As players learn more moves and attacks, they gain access to areas they previously could not get into.
When El Presidente's daughter gets kidnapped by the evil Carlos Calaca and his villainous gang, it's up to Juan Aguacate to rescue the girl he loves, and to save the world in the process.
