An arrow block is a block type in Kongregate Racing and the Platform Racing series comprised of 4 blocks that push the player in a certain direction.


As mentioned above, arrow blocks are used to push a player in whatever direction they're pointing. In Kongregate Racing, they act more as boosts users pass through to increase their speed. In Platform Racing, they're active blocks that players touch to get momentarily pushed in that direction.

While up arrow blocks barely nudge them in the air, properly timing a jump will cause them to be flung extremely high. Platform Racing 2 also introduces the ability to ride a line of up arrows from the side and stick to the bottom, as well as a down arrow that prevents the player from jumping while on top. This was altered in Platform Racing 3, allowing them to now preform a short hop.
