Gothic Blocks is a pretty addictive mini-game by Dylan, made using the Torque 2D engine. Like the developer says, there's nothing more gothic than ferries. Similar to Free Lunch Design's Icy Tower, you guide a character going by the name of Ionesco who must reach the highest altitude possible in ninety seconds.

A combination of mouse and keyboard controls can be used. Tap the left mouse button to jump and right click to freeze the ferries. Your avatar will always move towards the mouse cursor. The jump action is only allowed when you're standing on solid ground or a frozen ferry.

There are several advanced strategies to attempt, such as freezing a ferry only when it's underneath your character or pushing ferries into certain positions before pressing the right mouse button. Your best score can be submitted online for ranking purposes as well.
