A friend gifted me this.
Played it once, and my father was nearby.
He heard everything.





I secretly hate him now.

If you still don't know, how it feels to continue playing at 4 a.m. just because the soundtrack of the game is ducking awesome, then welcome to ESJ!

After my previous experience in the original ESJ, I didn't really believe in Groove City.
Fortunately, the game overwhelmed all my expectations!
Even though it contains different unnecessary parts, like collecting stars, I still kept doing that just because of even better musical accompaniment and great gameplay experience, which feels completely different from the original game. Less unfair places, more accent on the platforming itself makes ESJ: GC simply a major improvement to its parent.

In general, Groove City is just a H-I-I-I-G-H value for a cheap price. Go ahead and purchase!

[Edit]: It took me only about an hour to beat the game for the first time, but I feel like I will replay it a bunch of times just because of how great it is.

ESJ:GC is a nice game, the pixel art is attractive and the soundtrack is very much enjoyable, there is just one major issue I have that has ruined my experience. The way the camera snaps when your character reaches a certain part of the screen, rather than always following you with smooth scrolling, has caused so many deaths that would have otherwise been avoidable.

The camera will often snap sideways at vital points. It is especially frustrating when it occurs in mid-jump, right before reaching a ledge. It adds an unnecessary level of difficulty to an already difficult game that just should not have been there in the first place.

Because of how the camera system has been implemented, and with how often you have to repeat small sections of the game due to failure, this is one of the only games that has managed to disorient me and cause motion sickness. It may not happen to everyone but because of my unfortunate experience I just can't recommend a game that works against the player in such an absurd way.

Interesting 2D colorful game, small number of levels, but great and fun!
It also have many hidden stars, and 2 hidden levels!
Speed and finger skill required! :)

Groove City is a good addition to Electronic Super Joy, however I feel it should have just been DLC instead of it's own stand-alone title. Groove City is short, roughly an hour and your done with it and is comparatively easier than Electronic Super Joy. Whilst I did enjoy it, I don't feel its required for the full Electronic Super Joy experience. Pick it up if you want to support the dev, otherwise there isn't much reason to buy it. Still a good experience though.

Overview: If you're new, pick up the first Electronic Super Joy. If you're returning, this still has more of what you have come to love, plus a level editor, but finishes a little prematurely (insert checkpoint moan here)

ESJ: Groove City keeps its great platforming and has another set of killer tunes. It is about half the length of the first game, the levels, although possibily easier to speed run than the original, are absolutely more punishing (and rewarding) for those that are completionists, striving to get each star and finding the sometimes devilishly tucked away hidden rooms increase the difficulty significantly. It also has a level editor, so you can create and play custom levels, where you can really extend your play time.

Sadly Groove City does not have the double jump or smash abilities used in this game. This can make the game feel more focused, but after having them in the first, not having them in the second hurt the game I felt. I also LOVED seeing the short potions where color was implemented instead of the monochromatic style used primarly in the game. I would have loved to see atleast some levels done in that fashion or even the entire game.

Ultimately this game gives you more excellent gameplay and music, but misses out on some opportunities that could have taken this game to even greater heights.

The sequel to probably one of my favorite games of all time. It has a great soundtrack, is fun to play and worth $5.00. Only about an hour of gameplay, but it's expanded with acheivements + the level editor. It's good for a $5.00 game, without a doubt.

8/10

Like literally everyone here said , Buy Super Joy first.

Eletronic Super Joy: Groove City is so short it should be a DLC (honestly i've seen dlc's with way more content than this game, so yeah you got it its so short it should be a dlc.

Everyone beats Groove City in less than 1 hour so do a favor to yourself and play the first Super Joy and then if you want it so bad play Groove City. But keep in mind that its short. Really there's not much to talk about it so there you go.

Besides all that its fine, totally recommend it but not worth the money.

I understand it's always very difficult make a sequence of a major game like the popular "Eletronic Super Joy" however I'm not satisfied with that one.
The first game presents pretty much: blasfemys, nonsenses, amazing eletronic music, psychodelic visuals, a lot platforming, incredibly high challenge, innovative controls, something never seen.

This one presents: nonsenses, a little of blasfemy, very good eletronic music, psychodelic visuals, regular platforming, nothing new, no challenge at all (I conquered all the achievements in 2 hours or less), regress of controlling mode (now you can just jump and nothing more), something already seen in other regular games.

You know, people just wait for a game in the same level or better as it predescessor but in that case it just got stuck in the same old ideas, adding nothing new and taking away some good things (double jumping, some traps and the attack).
I mean, it became an easy short platform with good visuals and musics and a weird story, nothing remarkable.
I am disapointed, I expected more.... a way more than this one,
Nope, can't recommend, I'm sorry :(

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City is a wonderful installment into the ESJ series. Michael Todd keeps to the platformers roots and doesn't swerve too far away from what made the origional Electronic Super Joy so great. Sticking with the same music compser (EnV) leaves the game with the same lasting musical impression of absolutely nippletastic beats. Groove City does however feel MUCH harder than the original which is a good thing for all you who want a very rewarding platforming experience. Overall I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed the first one and just in general to anyone who enjoys a game with great beats and a great challenging platformer experience. 9/10


If you prefer impressions in video format, have no fear I do that as well!
