Guacamelee! Week continues with a Boss Theme chiptune mix

More art and music paying tribute to the Metroid inspired brawler.

The Guacamelee! game is one after my own heart. The developers at Drinkbox Studios seem to have handpicked some of my personal favorite pieces of culture, including lucha libre, Metroid, and a catchy horn filled soundtrack.

Some facts about Guacamelee!
