* ''Ferazel's Wand'' doesn't even try to explain why the main character can do this (although it might help that "Habnabits" like him are clearly not human.) It seems to have been implemented so the designers could put a bunch of coins and power-ups in high-up places that couldn't be reached by jumping alone, under the "they'll never look here" principle.
