General[edit]

Story[edit]

It is the fourth of July and the player, named Andy, must go find their friend Ken in order to put together a fireworks show.

Gameplay[edit]

The player traverses a suburban neighborhood, going house to house solving puzzles, mazes, and doing parkour challenges. The next location is given as a letter from Ken, who is always moving about. If the wrong house is walked into, players are sent to a punishment room and forced to restart the map.

Aesthetics[edit]

There are several houses around the map, each with their own unique furnishings and decorations around them. The houses and the surrounding area are designed realistically, resembling a typical American suburb. There is a large road in the center of the map and electric wires up above, tall trees, street lamps, and walls surrounding each house.

Challenges[edit]

This map is featured in four challenges, Flamingo Fury, 2013 Assortment, The Path of Heroes, and Hexa.

Trivia[edit]

  • Block Party is the origin of the Flamingo. It was made as a lawn ornament for one of the houses by Pieceofcheese and shortly later adopted as a "mascot" of sorts by Yeroc.
  • The two main characters in the map, Andy and Ken, represent Minr admins Packs and Kenad respectively. (Andy is Packs' real name, as stated in Funky Town)
