Endless RunnerThe level infinitely generates, getting harder the further you progress. It's highly important to keep moving, otherwise the creature chasing you will catch up.
HappyCollecting happy colors is key to survival. Collecting negative colors will be your downfall. Happiness is the only emotion in the world. Be happy.
HyperactiveJust Be Happy is a very fast paced game where you are, quite literally, constantly bouncing off the walls.
ChiptuneWhile happy, upbeat chiptune music plays. When sad, the music transitions to a much more depressing tune.

Just Be Happy is a really fun and enjoying game. I relate to it a lot in real life, I feel like my guilt and my depression is the monster and all the sad colors worsen my depression, but all the happy colors make me feel happy and want to live longer. This is why I give it a 9/10 for a good reflect on life.  :)
