While it often treads on familiar ground, I can't deny the level of quality found in Alwa's Awakening. This is a lengthy adventure full of bosses to fight and secrets to unearth. I spent nine hours fighting and dying, and I still haven't unlocked 100% of the map. This is more than just a loving homage; it's a damn good action game that completely understands why we're nostalgic for 8-bit adventures.
