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!

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

Electronic Super Joy is like one of those hidden gems you hear about from an old console. It is a very obscure game, which is unfortunate as it was an excellent game. The game offers levels in 2 ways. Your regular pass, and your no-deaths timed runs. This offers a new way to go back and do the levels. This is a very difficult game to fully complete, even to a massochistic gamer's point.

The greatest part is that even though the game was very obscure, the developers created a standalone add on pack for the game, and a dlc pack for the true fans out there.

9/10

An epic journey of rear-venge, this game will leave you: pissed 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.

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

I've got to say, for being a metal head, this game is actually one of my top five favorites. And it's the only game that makes me so ♥♥♥♥ing pissed off, my anger will form it's own gravitational pull and I will become God. Happens all the time though. See you all in hell.
