    Awesome! I never knew you could multi-jump, but I was usually too busy getting murdered by frogs anyway.

    I can't reproduce this on MVS. I guess the timing is super-strict, because I can't seem to get it to happen.

    Yeah, I tried it the other night on my home cart. Can't figure it out... either that or I have slow reflexes, which could totally be the issue here for me.

    The uploader* says it was done with the CD version.

    (*by which I mean AM)

    Translated instructions from NeoGeoKult:
    Double Jump: Press jump and shoot with a very slight shift (jump slightly before firing), then again when the first shot is fired. The timing window is very tight! Note: This trick only works with Elta, Shinobi and Waterman (easier to do with it).

    Pun intended or not, SNKorSWM is gonna be pissed you beat him to the punch...

    Also, it seems with this new double-jump discovery, people can no longer complain about the double-jump in the MD Shinobi titles

    Weird. I knew about the double jump thing as I did it by accident using the water guy before but I never thought to exploit it and go up walls and stuff.

    You just made Magician Lord the Super Mario of the Neo Geo.

    Time for some tricks.

    Now why would I be pissed when the value of my cart just jumped by 50%? XD

    Ok I can confirm this double-jump trick works perfectly on my non-modded JP AES, using a variation of the above quoted method using Elta.

    Surprisingly for something hidden for so long, it's not difficult... I was able to successfully double-jump using my first life right at the beginning of Stage 1, with no practice necessary. Just quickly tapped A-then-B about 1/10th seconds apart, three times in quick succession. i.e. A,B,A,B,A,B sometimes with 1/4 second pause after the first A,B. When successful, my blue magician hat leaves the top of the screen, at the opening screen of Stage 1, which is not possible with a normal jump. Amazing secret! Congrats to the OP for finding this.
