Wall Jump not registering?

Hi, just started playing, and I can't wall jump consistently to save Meat Boy's life. Half of the time he touches the wall, but then slides down to his death. I dunno, it just doesn't feel as smooth as other platformer I've played, and it's pretty annoying :/ (wall jumping on those breaking walls, wall jump doesn't register, wall shatters after I fall into fire/blades of death).

If it helps, would using a gamepad be better? Timing problem maybe? Thanks.

Are you pressing away from the wall? You have to do this in many games, but here, you need to press the jump button while pushing towards the wall (or from neutral). There is no timing required; you stick to walls and can jump off them at any point provided you don't try to move away from the wall.

Yeah, I try to switch directions as soon as I hit the wall, so that might be my problem (turning too early I guess). Alright, I'll try that, thanks man.
