I'm not sure if this is a bug or if everyone knows about it already, but I haven't seen anything about it and thought I should post something here.

Apparently the brief period of invincibility during your smash is long enough to cheat through some of the tougher spikey obstacles in a few levels. It's not a hard trick to do, and you can avoid pretty much all of the moving spike-balls using it, just jump very quickly after a smash (very easy on a keyboard, since you can press both buttons pretty much simultaneously.

Here's an example of it being used to bypass a tough jump in "Watch Your Step", note how the trail goes into and out of the spike balls:


Was this intended? Is it worth getting rid of? Does anyone other than me actually care?

Using my common sense, I'd say it's a leftover to prevent death when smashing on missles, considering it probably was buggy in development so it's most likely here to stay. Plus, I've known about this since day 1 and some runs on the ladder like mine use it as a trick so it'd be unfair to patch it out.
So basically...
Everyone understands, but nobody cares.
