    Acclaimed Retro Platformer Alwa’s Legacy Is Out Now On PlayStation 4

    Clear River Games and developer Elden Pixels has released the acclaimed retro metroidvania platformer Alwa’s Legacy on PlayStation 4.

    Alwa’s Legacy is a standalone sequel to Alwa’s Awakening that offers an expansion of its predecessor’s classic Metroidvania gameplay. Following the events of the first game, Zoe is about to embark on her quest home after saving the land of Alwa. However, upon awakening, she finds herself at the beginning of her adventure with the world feeling disparate yet familiar. In order to return home, she will need to help the inhabitants of this mysterious land and save it yet again from the mysterious curse it appears to be under.

    “We’re excited that PlayStation players can finally check out Alwa’s Legacy, as we know there are plenty of players on this platform who love a good, old-school metroidvania romp!”

    Mikael Forslind – Game Designer for Elden Pixels

    Using Zoe’s magic staff, players must negotiate the land of Alwa to solve perilous puzzles and fend off monsters. New items and a character upgrade system allows you to craft your individual playstyle, centred on an offensive, defensive or explorative skillset. Using magical upgrades, novel pathways can be found as you explore the non-linear interconnected world by summoning blocks to climb on, bubbles to bounce off of, and lightning bolts to attack with. Quick reflexes are needed to traverse challenging rooms while avoiding booby traps and pitfalls. Along this adventure, you will meet all manner of interesting characters, comb through dangerous dungeons, and uncover incredible secrets as you attempt to save the land from extinction.

    Alwa’s Legacy honours the past with its thoroughly contemporary take on the Metroidvania genre – full of puzzles to solve, dungeons to explore, magical items to acquire and ancient secrets to discover. Varnished with 16-bit inspired visuals, Alwa’s Legacy mixes classical pixel art aesthetics with new visual flourishes such as a realistic lighting system.
