Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

Near the end of level seven, there is a place where you have to jump up and to the right. It may seem like you cannot make the jump, but to make it you will need to push up and right at the exact time you push jump. Keep holding up and right until you complete the jump and if you do it right, you will sort of appear up on the next platform
