The guys of Gaming Boulevard reviewed the Wii U version of Electronic Super Joy and wrote:
Electronic Super Joy is a frustrating experience. Not because it’s difficult but because it’s unfair. The art style is plain and dull, even if the backgrounds breathe a bit life into it. It doesn’t do anything really cool or crazy in its levels and most just combine mechanics from the previous level. The Micro Hell mode has some cool and creative ideas and certainly is the most fun. The music really steals the show and is definitely worth a listen but maybe not a worth a play.
