November has been an exciting month for video games, with many new trailers and announcements. Unfortunately, this is coming to an end. However, the good news is that there are new games that Xbox Live Gold members will be able to purchase in December.

The list has just been published and one of the most classic games is Stacking, an adventure puzzle game originally released on the Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2011. It will be available for members in the second half of December.
Stacking is an oldie, but definitely worth playing. The game features Russian stacking dolls that take many shapes and forms in the game. In fact, throughout your game, players have the chance to discover over 100 stacking dolls.

They have special abilities that you can play with to solve puzzles or find ways to advance through each stage. It’s a unique concept that makes this puzzle stand out in all the right ways.
The story is just as gripping as the gameplay, and it centers around a young man named Charlie Blackmore. It’s the smallest Russian stacking doll in its region, but don’t be fooled by its small size. He has the heart of a champion and will stop at nothing until he can save his family from the evil antagonist in this game named Baron.
The developer was not afraid to tackle serious topics in Stacking Is. It reviews the harsh realities of child labor and the effects it can have on a family. Serious tones blend in an interesting way with the more bubbly and cartoonish visuals.
That being said, the wacky animations add a lot of humor to the game so that players don’t have to stray too far from the rails with serious tones. Stacking is just meant for gamers to have fun and maybe appreciate the concept of family and staying together.

And if you’re hesitant to play with stacking dolls because the gameplay seems to be getting stale, you’re in luck because each doll moves and behaves differently. It keeps the excitement alive from start to finish.
Overall, Stacking is a unique action puzzle that needs to be explored and played endlessly. Later in December, Xbox Live Gold members don’t have to make a lot of sacrifices to get their hands on a title that has a lot of personality and distinct elements.
