Gameplay[edit]

The game is a humorous platformer following a human character as he navigates a music-drenched world seeking revenge for his stolen butt. The player is able to run, jump (sometimes fly, or double jump on levels), and "smash", an attack that causes the character to drop directly downwards. Obstacles include mazes, special surfaces that impede or otherwise affect the player's movement, moving levels that force the player to move quickly, and enemies, some of which shoot missiles. The player passes numerous checkpoints in game levels that they resume from if they die.

Development[edit]

The original prototype name was called Techno Ninja. It had 20 minutes of gameplay in one long level, using one color style (Pink) and only one of EnV's music tracks. The player had the ability to double jump & ground-pound ('Smash' in the game's terminology).[3] The game was intended to initially release in 2012, but missed that date, released on August 23, 2013.[citation needed]

The game contains 45 levels in three worlds, with a boss fight taking several levels at the end of each world. A recent update added another world and 3 bonus levels, themed on the jungle and winter, respectively. The fourth world can only be accessed after the player has collected all of the 22 'Stars' scattered across various levels.

Groove City[edit]

In 2014, a sequel was released titled "Electronic Super Joy: Groove City". The gameplay and music style were similar to the original, and was released on all of the original platforms as well as the Wii U before its predecessor, but the sequel was released only North American eShop and European release was never done. The plot centers around a giant robot that destroys Groove City, and features new levels, music, and achievements. [4]
