Name variations: double jump, triple jump, jumping

The first video game about Mid-air jumping was released in 1984.

Activision, Capcom and LucasArts has published most of these games

Usually this is limited to the ascending part of the jump, but some games allow the following jump to be performed even during descend.

Possible explanations:
* Rockets (jetpack, rocket boots, etc.)
* Wings, fins, or other appendages (only good for that single additional burst)
* Magic (summons a short-lived platform from which they jump, or something similar to the above)
Related:
* Superjump - the more realistic variation of double/triple jumping.
* Airdash
