Tim Schafer is well known for his whimsical, humorous games - and Stacking stays true to this from start to finish. Reminiscent of silent films, Stacking's soundtrack is a gorgeous blend of twinkling pianos and fast paced violins, accompanied by on-screen dialogue and flickering black and white cutscenes.
Characters are beautifully crafted to fit in with their imaginative surroundings - look closely and you'll notice that floors are created from lollipop sticks and playing cards, while huge pins and matchsticks form railings and fences.
Some dolls are grouped into sets, distinguishable by their extravagant outfits and appearance. As well as being handy during challenges, Stacking into these groups of families and workers forms an extra task, so keep a lookout for the illusionist family, the silent film crew, the ambassadors and much more. Once a set is complete you'll be treated to a rather charming miniature play.
Other optional challenges include finding unique dolls and performing in-game Hi-jinks, which see you playing with different characters' abilities - everything from covering the place in potpourri to slapping other dolls will gain you points, and is lots of fun.
