Oh, this rule also explains the difference between pushing up into empty space, and climbing past the top of a ladder. As I recall, in the original Jumpman, the climbing animation would continue but Jumpman would stay put, resulting in a little dance.

I also corrected the typo: he doesn't straddle the joystick, he straddles the ladder.

I don't know why he hangs off the side of a ladder sometimes.

When I have a weekend with nothing to do, maybe I'll pick apart Jumpman Jr or something.
