Stacking

 

Matryoshka. That's the way I always heard it from the woman in the cubicle next to me, who had been born and raised in Belarus. This strange doll she had on her cube's top shelf was positioned in such a way that it seemed to stare down at me...

It's easy to recommend Stacking for a blind purchase, especially for those who are fans of the old-school adventure game genre. It's not a particularly deep or difficult title to complete, but, like a Saturday morning cartoon, is remarkably fun while...

Stacking is stacked with charm on Xbox 360, PS3

 

Tim Schafer and his crew at Double Fine Productions deliver another family-friendly downloadable game and Troy is here to see how it stacks up.

Stacking is one of the most charming games you'll ever find, a refreshing break from the ubiquitous shooters flooding the market. It may not have much replay value, but you will still enjoy your stay in the whimsical, unique world of Charlie and his...

Pint-sized puzzle solving never looked so good.

Innovative spin on the adventure genre, incredible humor and charm, irreverent storyline, solid puzzles with multiple solutions offer replay value

Matryoshka nesting dolls can look a little creepy at times

is long enough that it feels lengthy without overstaying its welcome, and the puzzles ever feel repetitive. It's well worth the asking price, and we hope Double Fine sends more games like this our way soon enough

Stacking Review

 

Video game celebri-designer Tim Schafer and his development company Double Fine are both known for putting creativity first. They're also known for overdue projects and problems with publisher relations. Lately though, they've both taken a new...

Despite Double Fine's uneven eleven year development history, Stacking stands as a clear indicator that today the company's on the right track. By allowing for smaller projects and smaller teams, it takes full advantage of the great number of talented...

Stacking on Playstation 3

 

Play With Dolls, Without All the Awkwardness

Despite giving my best attempt to explain what Stacking is, the best way to experience it would be to go in with no expectations and give yourself over to its unique brand of quirkiness. If the $15 price tag makes you question such a gamble, just know...

They're not stacking dolls! They're stacking ACTION figures! I'm a guy. I've never played with dolls before. That's girl stuff, but when Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions releases a game...

Beautiful presentation and art style ; Fun and entertaining puzzles ; Great hint system ; Collecting Hi-Jinks is really fun

Somewhat short play time ; When you’re done with everything, there’s no real need to go back

An enchanting world seamlessly combines with fun gameplay and rewarding puzzles to make Stacking a magical adventure.

Beautiful world with a charming, handcrafted feel ; Dozens of dolls to stack into with fun abilities to use ; Satisfying puzzles with numerous solutions ; Hi-jinks encourage experimenting with dolls' abilities

Story can be completed quickly and easily ; Minor camera issues and visual blemishes

If you approach Stacking simply as an adventure to complete, you'll find it to be a very short and easy game. You can plow through the story in just a few short hours, and the built-in hint system can remove even the slightest bit of challenge from the...

Stacking Review

 

A short, downloadable game that shows quality is much more important than quantity.

At its heart, Stacking is less a game than it is a story. You take on the role of a young boy, Charlie Blackmore, as he tries to reunite his captured family from an evil baron. The catch: they're all Matroyshka dolls. In this world made of finely...

Stacking is unlike any other game on the market. It's got humor, charm and the ability to possess dolls.

Stacking is chock full of charm, humor, and fun puzzles. Though some of the solutions are really easy, if you avoid the hint system it’ll take some time to decipher some of the harder ones. If all you want to do is run through the story without trying...
