Guacamelee tops PlayStation Network charts in April

Indie platformer tops Sony's download charts in both North America and Europe.

Drinkbox Studios' PlayStation 3 and Vita-exclusive platformer Guacamelee has topped the PlayStation Network download charts for April in both the US and Europe, Sony has said.

GameSpot awarded Guacamelee a 9.0 in its review, saying the game "is so full of personality and challenging gameplay that it's a shame it ever has to end."

Tomb Raider, Terraria, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Borderlands 2 rounded out the top five PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network games downloaded via the US PlayStation Store.

Over in Europe, which charts PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network titles separately, Journey was in second, followed by Hitman: Blood Money HD in third, Crysis in fourth, and The Walking dead in fifth.

Guacamelee also topped the PS Vita charts, followed by quirky role-playing game Soul Sacrifice. Dragon Fantasy Book was third.

The Nuketown Zombies and Revolution map packs for Call of Duty: Black Ops II were first and second in the DLC chart.

Nice game but I have a bug on a level that many others have and can't finish it. I think I'm a minority but there's youtube vids on the bug. You might wait for a patch.

Love this game! I've been playing it on my Vita. It's so much fun. Quite challenging too.

Only reason I haven't bought it yet as I'm afraid it'll go on PS+ and getting games you already own onPS+ always burns.

One of my few favorite games of 2013 without a doubt, would look forward to more from these guys.

I hope Soul Sacrifice claims top spot in May, at least for the Vita. Haven't played Guacamelee yet. SS is amazing.

@alchie11 Play some of the training levels in the main town's wrestling gym- you'll learn the combat system very well if you get through all of the trials.  The last boss is just plain hard though, you've simply got to learn his patterns cold.

@EliOli Don't worry. It'll be out in 6-8 months once the Pub Fund license expires.

@EliOli All games are developed on PCs and the next gen platforms will be more PC based and may actually run Windows as a base so games work on both...

@Naylord You say getting games on PS+ that you already own burns? Well how about missing out on a fun game you could be playing because you're waiting around for it to be free? I can't see this game being free anytime soon. Are you willing to wait months or possibly even a year or more for it to be free? You are technically burning yourself by not buying it. Buy it and enjoy it and if it turns up free down the road, who cares. The upside is that you didn't have to wait for it and that you got to enjoy it right now.

@Naylord I own sleeping dogs and it doesn't "burn" that it's on PSN+ I'm glad I bought Guacamelee and sleeping dogs.

@EPaul People like you bring down the quality of games. They should make a game similar to this style but not a sequel. The ending was great and doesn't need a continuation.

@hippiesanta @EliOli considering every parts in my PC are from 2011 and above while youre playing on 10 years old outdated garbage-ass consoles your argument is invalid

@darkprince2 Well I see your point but my backlog is huge right now. I will definitely play this game; it looks amazing. I figure by waiting though one of two things can happen: it either goes free on PS+ in the next two years (seems totally plausible) or it will end up going on a pretty big sale in the next two years. I would conjecture that at least one of these things will happen.
For now I can enjoy the never ending flood of amazing games that I'm already drowning in; this game isn't going to suddenly disappear.
