  • Hobo King DLC
    • Difficulty: 1/10
    • Time to 250: 1 Hour
    • Unobtainable: None

Step 1 (Complete Story)
Complete the story first and foremost; don't worry too much about getting all solutions to challenges, collecting all dolls or hi-jinks. You can if you want to, its optional in this step. Achievements obtained during this step: "Strike Breaker", "Seasoned Swashbuckler", "Airship Adventurer", "Well Trained Traveler" and "Blackmore Stack". These are all story related achievements, they aren't missable, they will unlock as you progress through the game.

Step 2 (All Solutions to Challenges)
Once completed story you can return to any of the challenges you didn't do all solutions to, there is a hint system which resets each time you complete the challenge, if you can't figure out how to complete the challenge, use the hint system, hint three pretty much does the challenge for you as it tells you what you need to do exactly.

Achievements obtained during this step: "Solution Sleuth", "Ship Solver", "Blimp Buster", "Loco Motivated". These can be left until the end of the game, but you can also do them during story.

Step 3 (Dolls)
Finding all dolls isn't as hard as you would think. You can go to your collection, see what dolls you didn't get during the story and below they are in the order they would be listed in the game, so all you have to do is look at the numbers you didnt get, with video guides created by Treisgar which will show you where to find the dolls.

Achievements obtained during this step: "Doll Hobbyist", "Doll Fancier", "Doll Connoisseur", "Doll Antiquarian". Unique dolls are dolls in an area that there is only one of. If you come along a doll and don't think you have seen it in the area before, stack into it as it is more likely an unique doll.

Step 4 (Hi-Jinks)
These are sidequests which are attached to certain dolls. You'll know once you completed them, a part of the doll will become gold. I will list what is needed for all of the challenges, they are very simple to do.

Achievements obtained during this step: "Train Trickster", "Maritime Merriment", "Dirigible Daredevil", "Triple Train Trickster". These are possibly the only thing you might need a guide with since Hi-Jinks don't have hints. Some you may get without trying, but there will be a lot that you may be clueless about. Most of them are 'use this doll's ability on 5/10 other dolls,' some are stacking-related and some are for doing stuff like playing round the level, using zip lines etc.

Hobo King DLC

Step 1 (Story)
Complete the story, it's also possible to get "Hobo Hustler" in this step, the dolls aren't very hard to find, there's only 14 of them and only 3 story related dolls, all challenges and hi-jinks can't be completed during this step as you need 2 of the story related dolls to complete the last solution in the last challenge and you will also need the exact same dolls to complete a hi-jink.

Achievements obtained during this step;
"Hobo Hustler"
"King Maker"

Refer to achievement guide if you get stuck with "Hobo Hustler", I have included a video guide which Treisgar created, along with some written guides.

Step 2 (All Solutions to Challenges)
Like the normal game of Stacking, hints can be abused, press 3 times if you have any trouble doing any solution to any challenge, the sixth solution to the last challenge might be a bit confusing and it may also be the only one you have left if you completed all solutions you could during the story, refer to the guide for extra details.

Achievements obtained during this step;
"Master Mendicant"

Step 3 (Hi-Jinks)
This should be the only achievement you have left now, just like the normal game, hi-jinks are sidequests related to certain dolls, if you did all the hi-jinks you could during story, refer to the guide for extra details on the last one.

Achievements obtained during this step;
"Super Tramp"

Hi-jinks normally consist of using a dolls 5-10 times on any other doll or playing round the level.

Conclusion
Stacking is a very easy 200 and enjoyable game, it doesn't take very long to complete, easy to pick up and learn too.

    Challenges are really easy in this game, especially with the hint system. Hint 3 tells you everything you need to know. There is no achievement for using no hints so you might as well abuse this feature if you're not sure how to complete a challenge or can't figure out any other solution. Hints refresh each time you complete a challenge, so when you use a hint again, it'll be telling you how to do the challenge with a different solution.


    To use hints press at the Challenges section when you highlight the challenge you want to do. You'll have to wait several seconds between using hints.

    Just like all the other challenges, hints can be used. Press for hints in the Challenges menu. This challenge only has to be completed once. At the end of the challenge there is a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Now hopefully you'll know how this game works, if not, it works like this:

    • Scissors>Paper
    • Paper>Rock
    • Rock>Scissors

    The Baron will have a glow round him, whatever he is. Example, if he's paper, you hop into a Scissor doll just before he comes to get you, attack him, then attack him again when he is a smaller doll, then one more time and that's it done. If he gets into one of the Scissor, Paper or Rock dolls again, you will have to do it over again, he gets quicker as he gets smaller, using the inside circle to catch him works.

    Once you have completed the story, stack into the 2 bigger dolls of the Blacksmith Family (dolls you use to forge the crown) and take them to the third challenge area. Use the larger one's ability (breathe fire) then quicky unstack and use the smaller one's ability on the doll you unstacked from. This will cause the fire to explode 'round the place, destroying the ghouls. Don't worry if a ghoul gets you if you have opened a gate, when you retry you just have to head towards the gate, it'll stay open until you complete the challenge.
