It was a very tight race for Game of the Month in April, but Guacamelee! from DrinkBox Studios narrowly managed to take home the honors, edging out other titles like Injustice: Gods Among Us and Soul Sacrifice.

To show you why the made in Canada Guacamelee! was given Game of the Month, here’s a few choice quotes from our review:

“You may not know this about me, but before joining PSLS, I was a professional wrestler. Fighting under the name Huevos Rancheros, I was the best around. Sadly, my career ended thanks to an unfortunate donkey accident on one dreary August evening.

So, you can then imagine my hesitation when the review of Guacamelee! was placed onto my shoulders. Coming from DrinkBox Studios, the team behind my personal 2012 PS Vita GOTY, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, I decided to weather the storm of bad memories, and it was totally worth it.”

“Billed as a Metroidvania type of game, Guacamelee! fully embraces the formula and does it very well.”

“Couple this with two awesome powers you have access to towards the tail end of the game and you’ll be having lots of fun just progressing through Guacamelee!.”

“DrinkBox’s great sense of humor is present within Guacamelee!.”

“If you had any doubts that this wouldn’t be worth the $15, you can rest assured that it’s money well spent.”
