Was trying to decide between the original or the sequel. I got the original for $7.50 on Switch, may or may not get a chance to play it tonight, but looking forward to it.
You could have gone for Guacamelee One-Two Punch Collection too but at $7.50 I think you had a good deal on a fantastic game.
Wait, is that a thing? I was looking for a bundle that included both on Switch but didn't come across it. I wasn't too thorough, though. Now that I think about it, and I'll have to confirm when I get home from work, but I think the price of standalone Guacamelee 2 was more than $7.50. Oh well, I should consider getting it while it's still on sale.
I only played for about 20 minutes last night and so far the game is pretty good. The gameplay is fun, but I feel I should mention that it did seem a bit less polished than I was expecting. I'm not sure if I like the game using colored blocks instead of replacing them with something feasible as a means of blocking transport, but perhaps this game is more focused on the beat-em-up aspect and the colored blocks allow the player to quickly glance at the map and find places they can or can't explore.
Combat is satisfying, and I'm sure it gets even better as I unlock more of my move set. I'm going to try out the multiplayer this weekend with my daughter and see how that goes.
And on the subject of the Axiom Verge sequel; is that just wishful thinking, or do we have reason to believe that Thomas Happ is actually working on a sequel (a 16-bit sequel, no less).
