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 players in the direction they're pointing. In Kongregate Racing, they act more as boosters users pass through to increase their speed, while In Platform Racing they're active blocks that move them in that direction when touched.

While up arrow blocks normally just nudge them in the air, properly timing a jump will cause them to be flung extremely high. Platform Racing 2 also introduced the ability to ride a wall of up arrows from the side along with sticking to the bottom of them. The game additionally added down arrows, which prevent the player from jumping while on top, though this was altered in Platform Racing 3 to allow them to preform a short hop.
