You aren't afraid of a real challenge? If not, play Electronic Super Joy!

This game is fantastic! Sometimes is a bit unfair, but that's how masocore games (trial and error) are supposed to be. At first, you'll lose the count of how many times you died, but with practicing you won't believe you finally passed that damn level! The pulsing music will get you pumped and also helps to make the experience much more enjoyable. There's a lot of replay value if you try to improve your times and/or want to get the achievements.

If you liked ESJ I recommend to buy the mini-sequel "Groove City". It's much more shorter than this game, but has a level editor and a lot of community made levels. It means even more replay value and some crazy stuff fans created.

I think Electronic Super Joy worth the full price, but if you buy it on a sale it's an absolute steal. Even if you're not experienced with masocore games, but are a fan of old-school platformers, you'll like ESJ. A lot!

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)

One of the hardest platformers I've played in a while. It's bloody awesome. It can be frustrating at times, but the feeling you get when you finish a level is amazing. And the music is amazing as well.

Tries to be a hardcore platformer, but as someone who grew up on 8bit platformers some of the sections more luck than skill.

Amazing 2D platformer.

The best part about this game is the challenge. In a world where most 2D platformers are easy way too easy or unfairly too hard, ESJ hits just the right mark. Great challenge without finding it cheap or unfair.

I felt like taking my laptop and snapping it in two it frustrated me so much due to it being so difficult. After beating it, I felt I needed to buy the expansion pack because I had that much fun. This game is Nintendo Hard and incredibly gratifying when you do beat it due to the difficulty. Totally recommend it.

The first few hours of gameplay are a refreshing, simplistic, and very wacky platformer filled with innuendo and stomping things (which, for the 75 cents i got it for, is all that I expected). However, it seemed to wear a bit thin (read; overly aggravating) later on, as most games these days do. It's a bang for ya' buck, but then it becomes content with being a scratch for ya' butt.

Electronic Super Joy combines fantastic music with infuriating music. I am still yet to work out if I like the game, because it makes me very angry...
