Great game! I have not played such great productions for a long time. An extraordinary storyline with funny motifs at which I laughed a lot. In addition, it should be mentioned that the game uses a wonderful soundtrack in which we will find masterpieces of famous composers such as Fryderyk Chopin, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or Antonio Vivaldi. I would recommend!
This is such a fun game and a fun concept. Technically a stealth game where you have to sneak into other stacking dolls to take on their abilities. There is so much life and character in this game, I wish there was more. I have totally enjoyed playing this game and I recommend it to any one else who just needs a breath of fresh air.
If you enjoy puzzle games you are going to like this one. It revolves around a fresh concept (you play the Russian doll Charlie and have the ability to stack into bigger doll characters, thus gaining new powers or access to new areas). The art is wonderful and the level progression satisfying; overall you can clearly tell Stacking is a labour of love from Tim Schafer's colleagues at Double Fine.
Stacking does something truly unique: present a beautiful, cohesive world with music, story, art style, and mechanics all contributing to the atmosphere. Sadly, the puzzles in this game are flat out boring. They usually consist of trying to stack with different characters until you find the right one, then pressing the "use" button in front of an obstacle. I think this game might be great to play with/give to a younger kid (like, 7-12?). That age range could have a lot of fun with this.
I think some of the reviews here give the game a really hard time. I get why, but I disagree with the overall assessment. Yes the game can get a little repetitive, since the only mechanic you have for solving puzzles in this world is using another character's ability, so you basically need to keep jumping into other matreyshkas to find the one with the right ability to solve your current puzzle. But the repetitiveness aside; because lets face it, many many console games are quite repetitive and we do not mind it. The reason people are actually upset about this, is that the game is very unique, it looks great, it feels one of a kind, so with that in mind people expect "THE WORLD" from it, and no, that's not what you get. You get an amusing little story driven adventure, it's easy to go through and therefor focuses on the story - an old style movie story, that's somewhere between a puppet show, a play, and a 20's movie experience. It's sweet, charming, and endearing. Which makes the game appropriate for some younger audiences as well as adults. Pros: - Deliciously different, in looks and gameplay Cons: - A little repetitive and simple. I still say this game was well worth the purchase and I'd recommend it to anyone who would ask.
