That's no small praise, and the sentiment is appreciated even if it is a bit of an exaggeration! :)
I think the reason you had trouble with the first jump is that it only works if you press A and push the stick forward at the same time. The button hint should be clearer in that regard.
And I might make a small patch later this weekend to make the climb work with only A. Because you are not the only one to have trouble there.
Thanks for playing!
