Persephone is one of those isometric puzzle games with a slight twist, some of the puzzles require you to sacrifice yourself in order to proceed. That can be quite the zinger since self-preservation is one of the principal rules of video games in general. The hero can’t make it out of the dungeon if they’re dead, unless of course, they’re playing Persephone. Also, it’s a heroine in this case. Like all decent puzzles, Persephone starts out fairly simple with the game getting you familiar with the different mechanics. New mechanics are also introduced frequently as you progress through different sets of levels. Not many levels are difficult in the initial set of levels but as towards the later half of the game, you do come across a few good ones. It’s not just the mechanics that make it difficult but the simple nature of the puzzle without the added complexity of the mechanics add to the fun. There are plenty of ways by which you can die. You may fall over the level bounds, drop into a pit of spikes, drown, get clobbered by a spiky cannonball or just set yourself on fire. Persephone has tried it all and risen up each time.
Brilliant Game! Worth it!
Super game with a unconventional dark humour. Loved it!
Great arts! But I don't Iike the controls, too many swipes. Needs cloud saves.
Very good puzzles. Would recommend.
