No worries on the slow responses (I'll admit I'm not as attemtive to the forums as I want to be); I appreciate the answers. I just tried playing with a controller and it definitely syncs up the with what my brain intends a bit better. My hypothesis is that while using a keyboard i am using 2 fingers on each hand to hit up and down, while a controller uses only one finger from each hand. I found on multiple occasions that using a keyboard resulted in both my fingers pressing (and thus doing nothing) because my brain knew that it needed to do something, but pushing a button down wasn't quite connected with the result onscreen.

Ah yeah totally! I usually use one finger on each side when using the keyboard which helps a *ton*. This sort of thing is what makes Spelunky unplayable for me on the keyboard XD
