I have to be honest here, the only reason why I decided to play this game was because of the music, not because of anything else. The awesome music in this game was produced by one of the first electronic music producers I’ve ever start to listen to: EnV. You probably know this guy if you have played a game called “The Impossible Game”. He created the soundtrack for the level 3: “Heaven Round.2”. This guy started making his may from newsgrounds and to soundcloud, and i really wish he could be more famous than he is right now because he’s really a good producer.

But we aren’t here to talk about EnV. We’re here to talk about Electronic Super Joy. This game is simple as it looks: it’s a 2D platformer where you jump, stomp enemies, avoid lasers, missiles and whatever you may find. Your quest is even more weird than the game itself: after losing an arm, an eye, both legs and your entire butt, you have to get back your butt from an evil wizard. And in the mean time fight the Pope himself on a spaceship battle above the roofs of a random metropolis.

In a few words? This a 2D platformer on drugs. On serious drugs. But I’m not saying it’s a bad game.

Even if the levels are hard and the game is pretty simple, I think many of us just played Electronic Super Joy just for the music. That’s what keeps you going. That’s what makes you keep trying after you die. Just listening to the music puts you in a good mood that won’t make you rage like an idiot if you keep dying over and over and again and again.

At the end, it’s not a game I would replay but it was a good BlindPlay experience. It’s good the first time around, but in my opinion doesn’t have a lot of replay value. My vote would be a 8/10, not more. Still a fair vote, even though most of it comes from the music.
