I know how to make it jump..sort of.. because when i click up button, it moves up and when i let go, it stops there.
How can i make it go back down even when i am pressing up due to gravity?

    When key Up is pressed for 1 second accelerate upward, after 1 second accelerate downward. I have seen people do that before. It is one of the more simple ways.

    Or you can have a Accelerate with Direction set to 270 outside a rule, just placed in the actor. When UP is pressed change the self.Motion.Linear Velocity.Y to whatever fits your jump.

    That is how we did in Little Dragon

    Here is a tutorial about setting up basic platformer movement that includes jumping.

    guys i really need help. can someone tell me how to do it? i saw many videos but none worked. character still can go as high as possible and stops there. i want it to stop after 1-2 sec of jump and come back to floor. BTW my character can go through floor if not bounces off. Any ideas on how to stop bounce? collide always bounces.

    Add a rule. change it from when "All" when "Any".
    type Touch select "is outside"
    type Touch select "is inside"
    then do your jump inside the do part of the rule.
