I know this is a bit of a repost.
I am completely lost as to how to finish the first level of Syobon Action. I get all the way to the end and then I just plain don't know how to get enough air to jump over the pole. I've seen videos and I don't know how they get so much air. Is there some button I'm missing? Is there a sequence of buttons that you have to press in midair? I've been just going off to the left and then jumping while holding right (the normal long jump) but that won't work.
This is so bad that I want to play Mario Galaxy just to show myself that I'm decent at platformers.
