Why is Platforming so Difficult in the Terminator for NES? – Behind the Code

Have you ever played The Terminator for the NES?

Landing is difficult. Jumping is inconsistent.

Sometimes you appear to land but fall through the ground!

Sometimes you fall off the edge of a platform while running even though you swear you pressed jump before you got there.

Sometimes jumping to the first ledge works but trying to jump immediately to the second ledge doesn’t! What is happening?

Turns out there are reasons for all of this, and those reasons aren’t pretty. You wanna know those reasons? You want some fixes? New Behind the Code. Hope you enjoy it!
