I... errr.... wut?

+ The best casual puzzle-based Russian stacking doll game you'll ever play.
+ Humorous self-aware dialogue.
+ Interesting and detailed world. (Thematically, at least.)
+ Nice music, sound direction, etc.
+ Came in some Humble Bundle long ago; $10 doesn't seem TOO bad for this game.
+ Puzzles have multiple solutions; side puzzles abound.
+ 100%ers rejoice, you'll have much to do.

- Puzzles may be too simple for some tastes.
- If you hate unskippable cutscenes, you'll hate this, but I grew up playing the Metal Gear series.
- Text may go by too fast in cut-scenes for slower readers.
- You could gripe a bit at the graphics, but this game never claimed to be a AAA title.
- You really can't explain this game to anyone without showing it to them.

10/10 - Would stack again.

Double Fine never ceases to amaze me with the sheer amount of charm and originality they can squeeze into a game, and Stacking is perhaps the best example of this yet. An adventure puzzle game starring Russian nesting dolls, it's designed around the principle of, ahem, stacking your character inside other dolls in order to gain control over them. Each doll has a unique ability based on the character they play (for example a bear can scream at the crowd, or a seasick child can literally toss his cookies), and it's in using these abilities that you are able to open up new paths and solve problems in any number of different ways.

And that's what I found so enjoyable about Stacking. It's not so much the actual task of solving a puzzle that's fun, but finding the myriad of alternative, often hilarious ways in which you can solve a dilemma that proves so satisfying. Sure I can simply take control of the chef and toss the caviar in the gutter to stop buffet, or I could use the Pide Pipper to draw a band of rats into the kitchen and have then overrun the place. Even when the solutions become too nonsensical to guess, a surprisingly handy hint system points you in the right direction without completely spelling out the answer.

And of course all of this is wrapped with as much charm and personality as you'd expect from a Double Fine game, with terrific characterizations for the dozens of unique dolls, a brilliant vintage art direction, and excellent cutscenes that pay homage to silent movies. It's absolutely brimming with character and manages to tie it all back in to its clever puzzle mechanics, making a cohesive whole that might possibly be my favorite of Double Fine's recent games. It's a hard call, but regardless of my personal ranking, Stacking is a joy to play and you'd be missing out if you let something so fun and uplifting pass you by.

A very interesting puzzle game from the minds of Double Fine, where you play as Russian Dolls and stack into others, much like real Russian Dolls. he puzzles have multiple solutions, preventing people from becoming too completely stuck, although rewards are given for discovering all of them. This also comes with the Hobo King DLC, Which adds a few extra missions, which are pretty decent. The apperance is pretty fun to look at too - looking closely, many items of the scenery are actually things like playing cards, giving you a real sense of scale.

This game is over creative... You'll need 20-30 minutes to start enjoing this game. Graphics is rather simple, puzzles are simple.

But I enjoid his game.

P.S.: works perfectly on Linux. Big respect to Double Fine for always making very high quality ports!

I don't know what inspires the creation of an adventure/puzzle game about Matryoshka (aka russian-nesting) dolls, but here it is!

Like most Double Fine games, this one just OOZES charm and humor; In terms of gameplay, it's all about exploration and puzzle-solving, but where most games of that sort involve hoarding items and using them in the appropriate way at the appropriate time, Stacking has you posessing recurring NPC types to utilize their special abilities or satisfy a role for each puzzle.

Also curious is that EACH puzzle has multiple solutions to it; Finding any one of them and hurrying through the game is a piece of cake, but for the real puzzle challenge you'll want to go back and find EVERY different possible solution. Additionally, there are small achievements to shoot for, just for the fun of it, usually involving using a particular character's ability to annoy a certain amount of particular characters or interact with so many specific things.

'Stacking', while being a game primarily aimed at children, manages to appeal to adults as well, not unlike other Double Fine titles.

Set in a fictional world of european industrialisation, tiny Charlie Blackmore, the youngest member of a family of proud chimney sweepers, finds his family abducted by the evil Baron and sets out to not only rescue them, but put an end to child labour as well.
In doing so, he has to make use of his stacking ability, jumping into bigger persons and animals, since all creatures in this world are Matryoshka dolls. With everyone being bigger than him, one could say that Charlie is the only one not being in some way hollow. Every doll has a special ability that may help Charlie on his way.
Overlooked or ridiculed by the bigger dolls, his only help is Levi, the hobo, who offers him a hideout and chronicles his adventures.

The concept is very well executed, making for lots of fun and at times quite tricky puzzles. There's multiple ways of solving the different situations, with a generous but optional hint system suited to all ages. On top of that there are lots of optional mini quests, involving all kinds of shenanigans, encouraging one to try out all possible combinations of stacking. There's much to explore and delight in in this small world.

Much effort is put into details. Difference in height when using different dolls changes perspective, field of vision, depth of focus and perception of sound. When jumping into a dog the colours fade, and so on.

The humour ranges from fart jokes to more mature themes such as the seductive black widow or that creepy guy who stares at women.

Along with the PC version comes the only DLC, in which Charlie returns the favour done to him by the hobos; finding the lost hobo king of Camelfoot is just as enjoyable as the main game.

This one comes highly recommended, whether you want to play it alone or together with your kids. Since some of it's themes are quite dark, it's probably not suited for toddlers as tiny as Charlie, unless you lend them a hand. Despite the grim tones, there's still a happy end.
If you like titles like Costume Quest, this one's right up your alley, but keep in mind that the alley is in some places quite a dark one, with monsters called men lurking in the shadows.

Double Fine generally produces some fine games and Stacking is certainly one of them. Stacking is a puzzle game which teeters on the casual line. It’s gameplay and core concepts are based on the Russian matryoska stacking dolls, hence the name: Stacking. You play the smallest doll of them all, named Charlie, as you set out on a quest to rescue your chimney-sweeping family from the evil industrialist Baron. If you haven’t already guessed, Stacking is set in a miniature Victorian world inhabited by matrioyska dolls. Even the cut scenes are presented like silent movies on a stage. It is not quite to the same scope as Brutal Legend as it is less than 10 hours long, and it’s not quite to the same calibre as Psychonauts, but Stacking upholds the fine name of Double Fine.

Stacking does have the charm factor turned all the way up with a saloon soundtrack, a miniature world and an unlikely hero. When all the dolls get excited, they jump up and down, like they’re being moved with an invisible hand. Stacking doesn’t take itself too seriously. It was produced as a small side project while Double Fine were working on Brutal Legend and feels like one too. While I was happy with the $10 purchase, I would not pay more than that as there’s just not enough substance overall.

Stacking is an unparralleled indie game experience

+ The game mechanics are great : stacking in another doll goes fluently and offers a great variety of special traits to be used
+ The challenges are fun, and make sure you come back to solve all the solutions
+ The Hi-Jinks challenges are goofy and combined with the doll collection aquired at each stage it makes sure you explore everything there can be found in each stage
+ It's unique in it's genre

- Once everything has been found in a stage there isn't a reason to return to that stage, other than causing havoc with a peculiar doll

Love it. Definitely one of the most original games I've played in a very long while: it's charming, it's funny, it's cute, it manages to be both easy and challenging at the same time, and most importantly: it's fun to play through and actually makes you -want- to complete all the extras and side quests! As an extra bonus, it's one of the very few games that I not only found had pleasant music, but I also liked it enough that I didn't care to lower the volume to almost nothing to avoid hearing it.
On the downside, cutscenes are almost unskippable (you can actually double tap esc to skip them, but only at certain points, apparently), but I can live with that for the most.

Stacking is a charming little puzzle game. The idea is that you are the smallest of many russian nesting dolls in this world. You are able to stack into other dolls bigger than yourself, one size at a time. Every doll has a different action they can perform. These actions assist you in saving your siblings, causing chaos, and just messing around in general. It is well worth the price and time.

Who'da thunk that nesting dolls led such interesting lives? Not all of them, maybe, but one mischievous little doll on a mission to save his older siblings sure does! He sneaks around, jumping into larger dolls with amazing talents such as farting, belching, sipping tea and playing tag, and takes control over them. Soon the trains are running again, the cruise ship is running no more, enslaved children are set free, the evil Baron is outraged, and the fun has just begun.

Long story short: it's a blast!

It's a fun little puzzle game where the gimmick is that you play as those little Russian dolls that stack on each other (I believe they are called Matryoshka dolls). The puzzles are quite creative and fun, and there are multiple solutions to each puzzle, allowing for a relatively high replay value. If you can't seem to figure out a puzzle by yourself, you can always get a hint from the menu. The third hint will literally tell you what to do to solve the puzzle, so only do that if you are completely stuck. There are also the "Hi-jinx" that you can pull off in each area, and some of them are pretty funny as well.

Overall, I really liked it. It's definitely worth the $10 that they are asking for it.

A game about stacking Russian dolls, saving your family, and . . . stopping child labor industrialists? You got it.

You play as little Charlie Blackmore in this third-person puzzle adventure. Though he is the smallest stacking doll in the game, you can get bigger by stacking into progressively larger dolls, each of which has a unique active ability. Some characters can play an instrument, or give handshakes, or fart out a green cloud of stink, among dozens of others. It sounds like an odd assortment, but you'll need to use most of the powers in this game along with a little imagination to solve the puzzles.

It will take new players up to an hour to grasp what this game is about and how to think in its shoes, but once that locks in, the adventure is great.

There are several solutions to the puzzles in this game, and players are encouraged to repeat the story's challenges to discover them all. You'll use a lot of guess and check, but it's fun to try out different combinations of dolls' abilities in each scenario. In one instance, you are tasked with sabotaging a museum on a cruise ship. You can stack into an illusionist to disguise part of the exhibit, lead rats in to ruin the fun, or just stack into the mummy on display (which happens to be a Russian doll, conveniently) and walk straight out of the museum. Whatever you do, other dolls' reactions will make you laugh.

Other more optional tasks include completing unusual hi-jinks and finding unique Russian dolls scattered throughout the levels. These won't be for everyone, but if you're a completionist with a passion for collecting everything, you'll be right at home here.

The story is appropriately simple. Every so often the cutscenes drag on and become childish, but this is one of the only complaints about the game. The visuals, soundtrack, and sound effects go together really well.

This is an artful game that runs at a nice length and pace. I cared about it enough to 100% it in less than a day. It would be difficult to find another puzzle game like this one.
