Persist is a tale of a small spirit, trying to seek a mysterious Goddess to forgive his past sins so he can move on to higher plane of existence. Unfortunately the Goddess really resents him. and tries her hardest to keep the spirit from reaching her, stealing his various body parts and various skills with them. Lose your arms, and you can't swim, lose your legs, and you can no longer jump.

Can you reach salvation? Or are you doomed to lose all hope, and your whole existence, in the deep and dark sanctuary of the Goddess?

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

The movement is muddy and hard to control.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I didn't think a textual storyline could be this gripping, but the ending really was tragic. After the main characters loses all, and is still willing to sacrifice himself at the end, you've gained a lot of sympathy for him. The platforms are both challenging and unique in how you go through them in four different forms. I found the first level on the second stage hardest, but they're all a challenge, and the end is both a reward and a loss. Great work!

It's fun, but there's a problem on the first invisible level, at the gap jump near the ceiling. No matter how close I get, I can't make the jump.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Honestly one of the best flash games I've played in a good long while. Interesting art and design kept the whole piece together and contained a cute little story as well. The platforming aspects began simple and became increasingly difficult towards the end, but the theme of the game really promotes getting to the end in one sitting. It's nice to see that simple can still be immersive given the correct style.
