Jet pack like behaviour?

how can i increment the actors Y position (faster over time) so it as the same behaviour as a jetpack, then decrement on release?

You'll have the most luck with the "Push actor Sharply" block.

Yes, this is quite easy to do if you use box2physics and gravity. There's blocks under ACTOR > MOTION > FORCE that'll let you propel your actor upwards, then just yet gravity pull it back down.

Pushing will work fine, but if you only need to alter the y speed, then I would update that directly rather than pushing since it accomplishes the same thing but is more performant.
