You are able to jump from your mid-air starting position. You must begin this jump by pushing and holding Up on the control pad as the star gather, at the start of the room. In Room 11 it apparently does nothing. In Room 20 it allows you to recover the key and pre-place some Brownstones. In Room 42 it allows you to get the Mighty Coin, two Gold Jewels, a Bell, and to set a fast exit for the room.
This trick seems to be a bit buggy. At least in Room 11, it appears to be affected by how you enter the door in the previous room (Room 10), and buttons pressed in between the levels.
Pausing the game in between the levels seems to cancel the trick.
If you jump and hold Up into the Room 10 Door, the Star Jump fails. If you tap-jump Up into the door, the Star Jump works.
If you are pushing Left as you enter the door, the Star Jump seems to work.
The fun trick in Room 11 is to Star Jump onto Stone D-11 than Double Demon the Sparkling Ball and Panel Monster.

Killing two demons with a single Fireball or Super Fireball. This increases the chance of a demon dropping a more valuable reward, such as a Scroll or a 1-Up. Since it is impossible to know if a Super Fireball is actually killing two demons at the same time, you should practice this technique using a Regular Fireball.
