      "Mucha Lucha! Mascaritas of the Lost Code" is a video game released for the Gameboy Advance console in 2003 by Ubisoft. It is a side scrolling fighting game based on a cartoon series of Mexican professional wrestlers. In the United States, the game received a rating of "E" by the ESRB panel which deemed it suitable for all ages.

      The storyline of this title follows the story of three professional wrestlers, Buena Girl, Rickochet and The Flea, on a quest to recover their wrestling school's "Code of Lucha Libre". It has been stolen by a gang of masked men and it is up to the player to recover them. The game is spread across 16 levels which are each very short and very easy. The player will navigate from left to right while fighting any enemies which reveal themselves. The game is very much a "button mashing" effort which each button executing a wrestling styled attack. The game also exhibits one obvious flaw and that is the simplicity in defeating enemies. The player may simply force an enemy against a wall or corner and repeatedly strike an attack button to eventually eliminate him or her from play. Because of this, the game is too simple for anyone seeking a wrestling oriented challenge.

      The graphics are presented from a side perspective which focuses on the player's character. The visuals appear to be very rushed in development. While the game is spread across 16 stages of play, there are only three obvious differences in the setting with these background images repeating throughout. The character are also small, lacking any finer facial details and very "jerky" in their animations. The soundtrack is comparably uninspired with generic rock themes and an assortment of smashes following the game.

      Overall, Mucha Lucha is not a game I would recommend to prospective buyers. It is hindered by its exceptionally simple gameplay and its poor audio and video implements.
