Game information

Enemy 585

Squish blocks will automatically fall down in this game, then bring themselves back up, then repeat the process. They stop falling if Turner is in its path when the squish block falls.

Nitrome Must Die

The squish block appears as the third and last part of the boss battle on floor thirty in Nitrome Must Die.


The squish block appears small in Nitrome Must Die, smaller than its Enemy 585 appearance.


The squish block appears once the crusher guardian is destroyed, and follows the exact same movement of it - moving across spiky areas, up, across, down, repeating the pattern. The squish block, due to its small size and significantly smaller speed, is hard to hit with bullets. The best way to kill it is to stand on the below middle platform, and fire when it comes by.

Other appearances



  • There is a glitch that when Turner sometimes stops a squish block, the block will stay stuck in that position.
  • The squish blocks resemble Thwomps from the Mario series.
  • The squish blocks will kill Enemy 585 if he is next to it.
  • Oddly, in Nitrome Must Die the squish blocks attack in a square motion, while in Enemy 585 they only attack by falling down.
