Alwa's Awakening is an 8-bit, retro-style love letter to NES Metroidvania games. Players take control of Zoe, a hero from another world who has been sent to the land of Alwa to defeat the evil Vicar by collecting magic Ornaments from his four Protectors. Zoe can explore more than a dozen unique environments in the interconnected world map. Along the way, she unlocks three upgradable spells that help her traverse dungeons, solve puzzles, and defeat enemies. Alwa's Awakening features vibrant pixel artwork and a catchy chiptune soundtrack.
