This can be achieved in the very first level of the game. Start a new game, pick Plague Knight, and once you're given control of him, apply the following:

Plague Knight can bomb jump by holding in cn_X until he glows blue and then releasing cn_X

This is independent of his jump and double jump cn_A

When in the air he can throw bombs by pressing cn_X He can throw 3 in succession.

Bomb jump to the platform on your right, once on this platform, charge a bomb jump, jump off of the platform, release the bomb jump, start spamming cn_X to keep you suspended in mid air, after every 3 bombs you've thrown there will be a pause before you can start throwing them again. When you are low to the ground time it so that after you throw a bomb you keep cn_X held in. Use your 2nd jump after you've started holding cn_X which will give you enough time to charge the bomb jump before hitting the ground, release the bomb jump and then continue to spam cn_X until you hit the ground.

It sounds complicated, but this video should clear things up.
