    When Simon is underwater (or Water Mode is turned on), he should have an unlimited number of double jumps. Not small, quick jumps like the Mario Bros., but high, floaty jumps like he currently has underwater, only he can do as many as he wants before touching the ground.
    The "Classicvanias" had no water physics to speak of, but this is how it worked in the Metroidvanias (or at least Aria of Sorrow), plus it sort of makes intuitive sense and it would be useful to gameplay. So I can't really see a reason not to do this.

    I like this idea but it isn't called Double Jump anymore. It will be called Multi Jump.

    Fair enough. I wasn't really sure what to call it. I was going to say "midair jump", but that's not really appropriate when Simon is underwater, now is it?

    This is an interesting idea. It would certainly help him get through underwater areas. It's a little odd, but as you said, it does have precedence.
