This is a great game for kids (and adults) to help them learn about Geography. The countries with their faces and eyes are really cute and the "stacking" part makes it a lot of fun for the kids. My 8 year old daughter already memorized a lot of the facts and can recognize several countries by shape. Thanks to the map game (another stage of the game) she is able to place a great number of countries in the correct area on a blank map. It is not just for kids either - I am learning a lot about landmarks and what countries' flags look like. This game is a must have - the best $1.99 I have spent! Get "Stack The States" as well!

I have been waiting for a while for this to come to android. My two girls (now 8&9) love stack the states and have all of states and capitols memorized now along with some different landmarks. We are still working on various things in the US but have moved our focus to world geography. Needless to say, I'm beyond happy they can play this game which will reinforce what I'm teaching them! I love it!!!

This edutainment app teaches your child more about world geography. My son started out playing Stack the States on an iPad at his school in the first grade. It was his first favorite app. He's now in third grade and has an Android tablet and still loves to play Stack the States and also loves Stack the Countries, which uses the same concept as Stack the States, but takes it to a country level. In fact, my son has told me that he enjoys Stack the States and Stack the Countries as much as Madden 25, which I consider the highest praise any educational app can receive! The developer of this app, Dan Russell-Pinson, has a gift for writing educational game apps that kids love and, as a dad, I am greatly appreciative. I paid $1.99 for this app, which I think was a steal. Today it's Amazon's Free App of the Day. I highly recommend Stack the Countries.

Our whole family enjoys this game! It's much harder than the U.S. states version, of course, but we're learning a lot about world geography. The stacking part teaches about the relative sizes of the countries, along with some physics. When you answer a question correctly, the chosen country appears at its correct size (relative to the maps in the game)and you drag and drop it onto a pallet at the bottom of the screen. You need to balance the countries atop one another, to reach an arbitrarily set line. Once the line is reached, you earn a country. The ultimate goal is to earn all of the countries on the continent you chose when you set up your player (after which, I assume you choose another continent to fill). Questions are asked about the entire globe, not just the continent you are trying to fill.
I also just figured out that you can choose which types of questions each player has to answer (see below for types of questions).
In addition to the game, there are two learning' modes - an interactive map and 'flash cards.' Click on a country on the continent you choose, to learn its name. Then choose 'flash card' to learn its capitol, language(s), bordering countries, major cities and landmarks (e.g. the pyramids of Egypt). Normally, my kids wouldn't be interested in doing the flashcards, but since they love to compete with each other (and their parents!), I can totally see them 'boning up' so that they can do better at the game.

The game opens and asks for your language of English, Spanish or French. Under Information you can go to settings to turn the music and sounds on or off. You can also edit the players. You can set up multiple players and select the one you want to use to play. When you start the game it asks you to enter a name for the player, any name will do. You then select a continent.

After you select a country you can see a ? mark button and you can select the types of questions you will be asked. You have to select at least 2 (Or more) of the categories. This includes a long list of topics like:
* Capitals
* Continents
* Languages
* Boarder countries
* Cities
* Landmarks
* Flags
* Country shapes

During the game play you are asked questions and they are not easy. You had better be good in the geography of the world. If you answer more than 50% of the questions correctly and you have stacked the countries above the line going across the screen then you earn a country.

The game is very educational and it would be a great learning tool for someone trying to improve their knowledge of the world's geography. The quiz is not easy and in reality can be difficult. The quiz shows you the correct answer after you select one of the possible choices. I traveled the world for 40 years and I did OK on the questions but the game play is not easy and may be frustrating for many people and children. I hesitate to call this a game but it is more of a learning tool that is a random quiz about the countries of the world. I gave it a 4 star rating for being a good learning tool.

In my scan of the game I found only the full access to the network as a permission. My scans found no adware or malware.

This is a fairly basic and easy game. Basically it's a quiz on country capitals, shapes, landmarks, flags, what continent is this country a part of, and what the country looks like if you were drawing it for a map. You answer a series of questions, with each correct answer you stack the country from that answer in a pile until it gets high enough to reach a line on the screen. Once you're over that line that round is complete and you get given a country to add to your world map of continents. I did do Geography in school and have travelled a bit, and read a lot of fiction set around the world, so for me the questions are mostly pretty easy, but if you weren't interested in Geography or travel the questions might be a bit harder. As educational tool it does have some value, although there probably are more affective ways of learning this stuff. I'd compare it to watching afternoon quiz shows, or playing trivia board games, learning through questions. A downside to playing this app is that it asks you the same questions quite often, but this would actually be good from a learning facts point of view.

Countries from correct answers for some reason aren't consistent in size, some are really tiny and others huge. It doesn't seem to follow a scale of what they are like in real life or anything like that. You can rotate the country and control where it is dropped so that aspect does provide some minor brain stimulation but that's probably more a feature for kids. Each country has a face where the eyes blink and the mouth moves so if it falling it sort of has an, oh no look. If it's stacked the country looks happy. The countries are also colourful. It's a simple quiz app which I find fun to play from time to time during TV commercials and times where I don't want to really get into a longer play app or reading a book on the Kindle Fire HD.
