Difficult levels, platforms that turn into missiles, rainbow cannons, seziure inducing raves, an AMAZING mindf*ck soundtrack, sex noises, the story of a guy who lost his butt, evil popes, a giant monster that shoots f*ckbeams out of his eyes, and enough pink to cure breast cancer.

9/10 would rave again

An epic journey of rear-venge, this game will leave you: ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off, deafened from the amazing soundtrack and constant or**sm sounds, bleeding from your thumbs from excessive tapping clicking and smashing, and relieved that you were able to play such an annoying yet wonderous game.

10/10 One of my favourite games of all time

A masocore Indie Platformer. It's quite challenging, pretty fun and the soundtrack is mesmerizing. Electronic Super Joy is pretty similar to Super Meat Boy in terms of game mechanics but has a pretty unique art style with a retro-ish feeling. Everything put into this simple gem of a game compliments the other and creates a wonderful, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and rage inducing experience.

Priced at 7.99$, with the experience I had with this game, It's absolutely worth the price.

There is something that I would like to point out. The game had pretty restricted/limited controls. Run, jump, smash.. that's pretty much it. And there isn't anything that you can do to actually change or affect those actions. If something like this was added to the game, this would have been amazing.

I'd rate it 9/10.

Ever wanted to kill the Pope whilst hearing sensational music alongside manly grunting and feminine moans? Well this is the game for you! Electronic Super Joy is an infuriatingly difficult platformer featuring stunning visuals and one of the best soundtracks for a video-game since Pepsi Man, the ost is just pneunomenal. The visual style whilst rhymically mesmerizing matching the beat of the music, can cause motion sickness so take that into consideration before purchase. With a hilarious over the top story Electronic Super Joy never takes itself too seriously which is enjoyable even if your struggling with a level. Never once did I feel cheated as the level designs are fair with an exception or two, and with enough tries all are possible to beat. The game is relatively short in retrospect, however the high diffiuclty will easily add several hours onto your play time as it is likely you will have to retry several levels. I highly recommend this to hardcore platformers as this game is not generally for casual players.

In Summary: 10/10 Must Own.
Pros;
+ Sensational soundtrack,
+ Beautiful visuals,
+ Difficult and challenging,
+ Controls well.
+ Levels are fair,
+ Can kill the Pope.

Cons;
- Infuriating at times,
- Not for casuals.

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.

8/10

10/10 would buy 5 more times.

Electronic Super joy is a great platformer with an awesome soundtrack. Although hard, I wouldnt say devilishly hard like some other platformers can be, everything feels fair and responisive (after you learn you can almost get a full character's length off of blocks before falling). The story has 3 main acts/worlds consisting of multiple levels and overacrching goal. There are 2 additional acts/worlds for bonus levels and tastes of the DLC you can buy. The game works well to implement different mechanics and then progressively puts them together in interesting combinations.

All in all the game took about 3-4 hours to complete all the levels and get all of the stars with a healthy amount of deaths and idling to music. Although expected, 3D vision did not work for this game, which is an absolute shame because I would love to see the already vibrant visuals pop even more.

The music is stellar, even if you are not a fan of the genre.

Do you like jumping? Do you like smashing? Do you like spikes? Do you like Rockets(lots of them)? Then you're maybe thinking about buying this game and can only say: Do it.

It challenging sometimes nerve-racking, but never unfair.

Your mission is to defeat the pope, for various reasons.
On your way trough the game you will get to use different abilities, all of them adding unique gameplay and levels in their way. You get to fight challenging and hilarious bosses and you do all that with the great music from EnV. [Check out the soundtrack, it is worth it.] The developer really put much love in this game.

The graphics are bright and alive through the music's beat and often you notice that you're actually jumping to the beat.

As for the very direct controls i recommend playing with a controller, because that's just how you play platformers.

If you enjoy good platformers and music then i bet you'll love this game.

In conclusion, this game is nearly a perfect platformer designed with much effort and love. 1201/1337

Have you ever done LSD? Have you ever been on an acid trip? Have you ever played Super Meat Boy?

If you said yes to any of the questions, you will like this game.

If you said no to any of the questions, then you should play it. It'll give you the experience of all three.

Electronic Super Joy is the sexiest, most infuriating game I have ever played. The humor is sharp and the music is awesome, and while there are many platformers that are "challenging," Electronic Super Joy feels more like Super Meat Boy on LSD. Infinite checkpoints (complete with sexy moans and oh yeahs) make sure you're never too far off course, and the gameplay is tight and constantly changing. The final boss in particular is a nerve wracking experience in that I personally both loved and despised, for it took me far too many tries to finish even though I knew what I had to do.

This game is not for the faint of heart, and there were plenty of areas that made me stop and take breaks after many frustrating failures. At the same time, the game is not strictly a barebones platformer. Many mechanics are implemented through out such as changing gravity and a constantly changing move set, but there are plenty of moments where ESJ becomes more like a bullet hell shooter, keeping the freshness around even after I felt I'd seen it all.

It feels unfair to compare this Meat Boy, for the platforming has a very different feel than many games of the genre, nor is it as nearly precise, even though it demands it. This often led me to most of my frustrations as I found it harder and harder to play out what I was supposed to do, for the controls can be extremely touchy, even with a gamepad. There were plenty of moments where my palms were sweating less out of nerves than frustration, but these sections are not common and did not ruin my enjoyment.

Plenty of modes are offered as well, including an endless runner that I enjoyed a bit more than I should've. There are also four bonus levels that you can unlock once you find all the collectable stars, but they pose a challenge that far exceeded my abilities, as I only managed to complete one of them. I got half way through the second before being driven insane by some of the obstacles, and the other two including I tried a few times before calling it quits. Completionists will enjoy the increased challenge, but for me the fun quickly waned.

All in All, Electronic Super Joy is a fantastic but flawed game that far surpasses most games that come out of the indie scenes. Strikingly unique but with a familiar feel, this game will leave you with a lasting impression and a sense of accomplishment time and time again.

Very fun game with lots of pun and awesome beats.

Sadly i finished it in 1h 15min, so the 2hours playtime displayed are misleading and it's even shorter than that. I recommend getting this game on a sale. I recall buying it for 2€, which is fine for me. It also has a little bit of replay value because the stages are mostly designed well and you can try to get some collectables to unlock a few extra stages.
