An email sent in this morning asked what the first game to feature a double-jump was. I realized I honestly didn’t know, and neither did anyone else in the office. There was some debate about whether Yie Ar Kung Fu featured double-jumps or if you could just jump really high.
What’s the first game you can remember with a double-jump in it? I figured Qt3 would be a good source of folks who might remember obscure '80s computer games that may have come up with the move before mainstream console or arcade games.
What the god damned motherfucking hell are you shitheads talking about? Half the games you guys are naming didn’t have double jumps (the original Metroid? Uh… no.) or games that are really pretty recent.
So I’ll throw in. I think the first game that had a double jump was Donkey Kong. Oh shit no wait I guess it was Aria of Sorrow.
