The Stack app is the latests free game to take over the app store, displacing the Kendall and Kylie app as the number one free iPhone app and it’s even available on Android already.
Here’s what you need to know about the Stack app for iPhone and Android, as well as the cheats and tips you need to stack higher and get a better high score.
The Stack app is free on iPhone, iPad and Android through the app stores. This game is a great one to play when you want to pass some time, and the ads are infrequent enough that you can deal with them.
What is the Stack App?
The Stack app or Stack game is a simple game that requires you to time pressing the screen to stack a small board on top of the stack you already made.
If you are able to stack the next board on the exact outline of your current stack you go higher and don’t lose any of your stack width. Unfortunately when you mis-time this and leave some hanging over an edge your stack width shrinks and so does the size of the incoming pieces.
You need to time this right to keep the pieces as large as possible so that you can grow the Stack higher. The game ends when you miss completely with a new piece of the stack.
Stack App In App Purchases
There is only one Stack app in app purchase that you will see. This is an option to remove all ads for $1.99 on iPhone and $1.86 on Android.
You can play the full game without buying the in-app purchase since it does not lock any levels or slow down your progress.
In between some of the tries you will see full screen ads that may take a few seconds to disappear. If you really enjoy the game and play through it frequently this is a smart purchase.
