The Helicopter Ears is a special move from Jazz Jackrabbit 2 useable by Jazz and Lori, performed by repeatedly pressing the jump button in midair. When used, the player’s rate of descent slows to only a few tiles per second, allowing for long glides over wide open spaces. The character will continue to helicopter for about a second after the jump key was last pressed. The manuever instantly ends when the character touches a floor, but being damaged while coptering does not end it.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
