If you notice it somewhere still in the main levels it's not that bad. I was still pressing arrow keys + jump at the same time in the Guy fight which made it like 10000 times harder.

That's something I've always had qualms about, but I guess the intention was to not have a million textbox tutorials since IWBTG is such a big homage to the 8-bit era where you had to figure out cryptic stuff like that on your own. Also I wouldn't know how to teach the player to hold down jump without flat-out telling them, but that's why I'm not a game designer.

But no, figuring that out afterwards wasn't really that infuriating, I laughed more at myself for not realizing it more than anything.

Yeah. I heard someone say that you could do that on the forum. Otherwise I might never have found out!

I prefer the shift method. I've done it for so long

I used to do space bar and z, but then I got tired of having to reset my controls whenever the game crashed or closed, that I switched to shift and z.

Makes a helluva difference in gameplay, I tell ya what. Have you ever done a 1.5 inverted with the spacebar? Kappa
