The first video game about Jump pack was released in 1989.

Activision, THQ and Capcom has published most of these games

This is NOT for devices that allow flying, or even hovering, indefinitely.

The jump pack is designed either to give only short bursts, isn't capable of giving more (limited energy/fuel), or some other limitation that makes this effectively seem like an early prototype jetpack.
