Fun, quick, educational
There are absolutely no advertisements or pop-ups in this app. I play it on i-phone and iPad. There are several games in Stack The States, but you cannot play them all immediately. You have to win enough states to advance to a new game, so success relies on some prior knowledge. This is not going to teach kids to identify the states if they are clueless to begin with, but it will reinforce what they know, and add to their sense of confidence or self-efficacy.
Playing the Stacking game is educational because you have to identify the state given 4 choices, but it's also funny. I love watching the states' facial expressions — the look in their eyes — as the stack wobbles or falls.
My only quibble is that the state flags are too small to read clearly. I wish they would expand quite a bit larger when I tap it.
There is another game where you have to place the states on a map as fast as possible, but with 3 strikes you're out. Good fun. Works better on iPad than iPhone, due to size.
The other games in the app are okay, too, but stacking and mapping are my favorites.
Worth the Money but...
I downloaded stack the states when I was only 9. In just 2 or so weeks of obsessively playing it, I knew so much more about the states than I did before and had collected over 120 states!
I do wish that the updates were placed on the same app, because I wouldn’t pay anything for the second version now that I know quite a bit about the states, but still like the new elevation maps and mini games the second version provides.
Also, I wish that you could transfer the app between two devices. I got stack the countries on my Samsung Galaxy S9 phone and want to transfer it to my iPad without having to buy it again. I also got pretty far in the app (received over 120 countries) and don’t want to start over.
Thank you for reading this review, I really love the app!
Just missing one tiny feature
I bought this game for my daughter who has special needs. Her reading ability is not where it should be for her age, however, that doesn’t mean she is incapable of understanding. The only reason why I’m not giving it all the stars is solely out of the inability to have the questions read out loud to the player. We love the size of the font, the graphics, the sounds, and the customization of the type of questions! We would love it even more if my daughter could keep her independence while playing it instead of having to endure our interruptions.
