Wall jump

From SMO.wiki

A wall jump is a basic part of Mario's movement and can be initiated during a wall slide or immediately after contacting a wall. When a wall jump occurs, Mario moves away from the wall perpendicularly with a fixed speed.

Properties[edit | edit source]

While mostly locked into a single direction, Mario can actually slightly move left or right during a wall jump if the control stick is held in either direction. Wall jumps are commonly used after a cap throw before contacting the wall, in order to maximize height. A wall jump will usually prevent Mario from cap bouncing afterwards, but this can be avoided by wall jumping when Mario is very close to the ground.[1]

After wall jumping, the game will note the location and angle at which Mario wall jumped to determine whether he can perform a wall slide on subsequent surfaces.
