Aaru's Awakening is a hand drawn 2D action platformer. The game requires players to make the most of Aaru's two mobile abilities - teleportation and charging - as he travels through the world of Lumenox to defeat an evil entity. These two abilities are at the heart of every level design throughout the game, to make a challenging and fluid experience.
The world of Lumenox consists of a balance between Dawn, Day, Dusk and Night. But the balance is being compromised by a dark menace from the domain of Night. As a last hope Dawn sends out his champion, Aaru, to travel all the way to Nights domain and restore balance.
