Alwa’s Legacy is a beautifully animated modern retro action platforming metroidvania adventure where you use a magic staff to defeat enemies and solve puzzles in a mysterious land that you awaken in.
Currently in development by Elden Pixels, Alwa’s Legacy is a sequel of sorts to the excellent NES styled Alwa’s Awakening. Alwa’s Legacy has more of an enhanced 16-bit visual style though and they’re both standalone adventures (a little like the Zelda games), so there’s no need to have played Awakening to appreciate Legacy. In the game you’ll follow the adventure of Zoe, a young heroine who wakes up in a strange land that you’ve apparently been sent to save. As you explore the world you’ll fight monsters, solve puzzles and upgrade your magic powers to suit the way you want to play (explorative, offensive or strategic).
The original Alwa’s Awakening was a fantastic slice of retro styled metroidvania action and Alwa’s Legacy looks set to deliver an upgraded experience on all fronts. The gameplay looks excellent, the pixel art animation looks amazing and the soundtrack is being created by chiptune master RushJet1.
