Title Screen

Block Force

Developers: Hwang Jiun-Ming, Hwang Shinwei
Publisher: RCM
Platform: Unlicensed NES
Released internationally: 1990

GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.

Another puzzle game from RCM, who were perhaps hoping to replicate Magic Jewelry‍ '​s success with a clone of Konami's Quarth - they even doubled the size of their development team (to two people).

...Unfortunately for them, Konami brought Quarth to the Famicom officially that same year, rendering their efforts slightly redundant.

Unused Graphics

To do:
Can any of these be displayed in-game somehow? Magic Jewelry and Magic Jewelry II had some quite well-hidden easter eggs.


Block Force - Small Title.png

A smaller version of the title logo.

Block Force - Block Hole.png

An unused title, "Block Hole". This also happens to be the international name for Quarth, the Konami arcade game this is based on.


Block Force - Buttons.png

These look like controller buttons, perhaps intended for a tutorial or the options screen. However, no tutorial exists, and the options screen only contains a sound test.


Block Force - Dev Photo.png

There are two versions of this game: one with copy protection, one without. A digitized photo of an unknown person (possibly one of the game's developers) and an associated tilemap appear near the end of the ROM in the unprotected version, though no code to actually display them seems to exist. The photo and tilemap were removed to make room for the protection code in the protected version.
