An ice block is a special type of block introduced in Chip's Challenge 2. In addition to those that can push dirt blocks, objects that can push ice blocks also include other ice blocks.

It can also be inserted into Chip's Challenge 1 using the patch pgchip by pieguy. The properties of ice blocks from this patch are slightly different from those of Chip's Challenge 2.

Properties[edit]

  • Multiple ice blocks in a row can be pushed simultaneously.
  • Ice blocks will turn fire into water, water into ice, and dirt into floor.

CC2 only[edit]

Use in CC1[edit]

After applying the pgchip patch, one of the unused tiles is then replaced with the ice block in the tile index. The patch was written before Chip's Challenge 2 was released, so David Stolp worked with descriptions from Chuck Sommerville to create the tile.

Special level sets, or just special levels in a set, have been made to demonstrate the effects of the ice block; Chip can play the levels that do not have the tile in them normally, but must use pgchip to play the ones with.
