I left Stacking with the same feeling, though this time it was a bit different. Unlike with Costume Quest, where I wondered where my time went, I had more appreciation for what I'd accomplished. It wasn't a big feeling, but knowing I'd solved some tricky logic puzzles was a good feeling.
If anything, Stacked deserves points for presentation. The entire premise is built around Russian matryoshka dolls, otherwise known as nesting dolls. Stacking isn't visually complex, but it's great to see how much personality the artists were able pull from a bunch of egg-shaped dolls. Each has its own movement style, like the sexy doll's hip-shaking sway.
The game is presented as a silent-era film, only performed on a stage. Once more, the game's personality really shines. The small pantomimes from dolls carry more personality than some voiced characters and the music adds just the right amount of punch to communicate what the dolls can't.
