For some reason the game is Having problem Accepting Xbox S pad on Native linux.

Up&Down were inverted, So I exchanged them in option. but the control was still inverted.


I would absolutely love to see a retro port of this game. I will support as much as I can!

sorry, does this come with a DRM free copy and steam key?  thank you.


We're not sure we understand. The itchio copy is DRM free yes but there's no Steam key inluded on itchio. Only if you get the game on Steam.

it’s not uncommon for a game on itch to give a steam key on purchase. creators get more money from itch, and installing with steam is convenient.

(edit: lol at down votes?! was just explaining the original question)

can you add a SNES ROM version too? I am using the RGM hand held emulator and would love to play it as a stand alone on it.

It doesn't exist a SNES version of Alwa's Legacy. 

I'm totally lost, where do I go once I have finished Sylvan Temple :)

Hello, at this point you have multiple choices and your main task is to reach the boss icons on the map.

A little hint for one path of progression is to follow Central Alwa all the way to the right and instead of climbing up the tower, you go down.

Hope this helps :)


I was excited to try this out, but on my Ubuntu machine, my Logitech USB gamepad doesn't work. I can navigate, jump, and open my inventory, but I cannot close it and I can't attack. In fact, in a bit of irony, when I navigate to the controller settings (either from the pause menu or from the main menu), I can't navigate away, leaving me forever stuck on the controller mapping page.

Is there anything I can do to help diagnose this issue?

Hello, sorry to hear that your controller doesn't work.

It's hard for us to test or reproduce this, other users that have ran into similar issues on Linux have either used another controller (like an Xbox controller) or used some third party software that lets you emulate Xbox controller inputs with their Logitech controller.

I'm sorry that I can't provide any more straight forward solution to your issue.

I had the same issue and found a somewhat crude solution: use the keyboard to navigate to controller settings and redo the controller bindings. That worked for me.

Even better than the first.


Sweet. Happy to see this now on itch as well!
