ESJ is a hardcore platformer with an awesome soundtrack and tight controls. If you like electronic music (like I do) then you should definitely buy this game. Prepare to rage-quit, leave the game alone for an hour, then come back for more!

If Dark Souls had a 2D little brother, it be this game.

Goal of the story? To take your butt back... yes it was stolen by a wizard...who apperantly has a thing for butts.

-Starts off hard, and rocket jumps into impossible difficulty.

-Seizure causing lighting.

-Blasting techno music.

-Sexual Moans by either M or F everytime you respawn. (Gender Equality at its finest)

Score: 69/69

Electronic Super Joy is a hardcore platformer with an amazing soundtrack. It isn't that expensive for what you get out of it and it is still fun to play after you finish the game just to try and beat your own scores etc.
You run, jump, smash and fly your way through more than 45(!) weird and well designed platform levels with low-gravity, world rotation, giant monsters and swarming missiles. There are so many different and interesting concepts in this game and it is just a good time :P

As I was jumping my way through the game I constantly found myself headbanging to the music and just having a lot of fun. As of the story, there is not that much too it, it mostly contains of butts and bad puns. So if you were looking for a brutally difficult platformer with a "good" story, this might not be for you although I enjoyed every bit of it!
Something else to note is that this is a very over the top game with a lot of flashing lights so if that is what you're looking for then go ahead and buy it ;)

Electronic Super Joy is an overall satisfying and well done hardcore platformer filled with bad puns, awesome electronic styled music and more(see disclaimer at the start of the game).
If all of the above or some of it is to your liking then this game is for you my friend! :D
