Each area contains a number of different Russian dolls, and each type of doll has a specific ability. Some of the special abilities are used to solve puzzles, but many are included merely for added variety and fun. There are about 30 different types of dolls in each area, most of which are one-of-a-kind. Charlie can hop into progressively larger Russian dolls in order to use the abilities of the various dolls. This core mechanic offers not only a unique gaming experience, but also merges seamlessly with the puzzles.
The puzzles in each area arise as Charlie learns where his siblings are being held and what needs to happen in order to set them free. For example, one sibling is forced to clean the smoke stacks on the cruise ship and Charlie knows his sister will be set free if he can end the cruise. He then sets out to upset the VIPs on the ship and get them to complain to the ship's captain. Without this merging of story and puzzles, I doubt the game would feel nearly as enjoyable, but by merging these two aspects together, I actually felt like my actions were having a worthwhile impact on Charlie's quest.
The story and writing are okay. The story seems to rank second with the primary focus clearly placed on the puzzles. There is an appropriate amount of humor mixed in, to include well-placed references to popular fantasy and science fiction material.Read more ›
Stacking is very creative and a lot of fun!
Thank you Amazon for the download services!
The Bad: No map, no reward for doing side missions, can be beaten in a short few hours, figuring out the puzzles can be a real pain
Double Fine Productions is known for very original and unique games (Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, Costume Quest) but has a hard time creating them, it seems. Stacking is about a small matryoshka doll named Charlie Blackmore who goes on a quest to stop child labor, and stop the evil Baron from enslaving children for his selfish needs. In the process he is saving his family members who are trapped. The game is very charming visually and appeals to all audiences.
The main gameplay in Stacking consists of you stacking inside dolls that are bigger than you and solving puzzles. There are areas that have someone blocking something, or something needs to be triggered, and you have to find the right doll to do this. You get three clues to help you along the which is a lifesaver, because otherwise, it would be very difficult to know what to do. There are so many dolls that stacking each one would take forever. One puzzle involved finding a way into a cell that is holding a doll. The man is a doctor, so you have to find ways to make him feel ill. Stack into a doll blowing air and then a fire chief. Spray him with water then unstack and blow air on him to make him sick. This is just one of multiple solutions. Each area has several ways to solve puzzles, and finding them all will unlock stuff in your hub, but it's nothing useful.
You can also complete hi-jink challenges which is where you use dolls abilities a certain amount of times.Read more ›
