Alwa's Legacy is a metroidvania game, developed in a platformer convention, which is the second part of the series initiated in 2017 by Alwa's Awakening project. This time the Elden Pixels studio decided to prepare a game inspired by hits from the 16-bits era. This game was created thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.


Alwa's Legacy takes us to the fantastic land of Alwa. The main heroine is Zoe, who has no idea how she got here, even though everything around her seems strangely familiar to her. Shortly afterwards, the protagonist learns from the mysterious character that she is the only hope to save Alva and her people. With no other choice, the girl decides to embark on a journey full of dangers.


In Alwa's Legacy, we observe the action from the side. During the game, we walk through extensive levels, among which we find both surface locations and extensive underground. Exploring them, equipped with a magic stick, Zoe solves environmental puzzles, jumps on platforms and avoids traps and field obstacles, and fights enemies. As we progress, we unlock improvements for the protagonist, which are useful both during exploration (individual places make up a kind of labyrinth, and access to many of them requires prior unlocking of a particular ability or acquiring a particular item) and during the fight against enemies.

Technical aspects

Alwa's Legacy game is in retro style. The graphic design of this game was made in pixel art technique, and the fun goes on to the accompaniment of an ear-catching chiptune soundtrack.
