Electronic Super Joy is a 2D Platformer that centers around challenging microstages while listening to amazing electronic-themed music.
The story is about a lone, wandering hero who's fought in many battles and wars, losing many limbs including, most importantly, his butt. This entire journey is to find and defeat the one that took his butt. The story is really simple, and is told through quick dialog that's thrown out to you as you go through the level. It doesn't take itself seriously, it's very silly, and you'll get some laughs out of it.
Gameplay is very addictive. It mostly involves around precision platforming, an endurance race outrunning the screen while dodging obstacles, or surviving an onslaught of missles which you need to get rid of. There are 5 worlds with 20 stages each, lasting any time from 10 seconds to a couple minutes; with the exception of World 4). It sounds short, but it's a hard game. A very hard game, later on. You need to bring your platforming A-Game if you want to survive the difficulty it brings.You can think of it as Super Meat Boy, but a little less extreme. As you can tell, this game would be ideal for platforming lovers and gamers who love a good challenge, and I'm both of those. Achievements further reward your skills with painful goals such as earning zero deaths on each level, or beating all the time trials. If you love challenge, and want to be tested, this is for you. For other game modes, there's Infinite Love Mode, where you try and go through as many microstages as you can in a row before you fail. There's also No Checkpoint Mode for the most hardcore players out there.
The soundtrack is one of the highlights that everyone keeps talking about, and rightfully so. The game offers many tracks to keep your spirits high and your ears a lovely taste of music with each step. For most people, it's what keeps them going, and offers motivation to move on to continually hear the amazing beats this game pulls out. I suggest you find the soundtrack when you can.
Overall, Electronic Super Joy is a fantastic difficult platformer with stellar music and a hearty challenge that platforming enthusiasts would surely love, and achievement hunters will get a run for their money.
