A clone of the arcade game Stacker

Project description


Slacker is a clone/parody of the popular arcade game Stacker, in which you must stack blocks to the top of the screen in order to win the game. Boxes will move back and forth at varying speeds. Press Space to stop the boxes and move on to the next row. Only boxes that have something underneath them will be stacked. As the tower rises, the game will make your tower thinner. You win a minor prize at the 10th level (the blocks change color), and if you reach the 15th level, you will win the major prize. Good luck!

This game and the above description was originally written by Clint and Jennifer Herron. I forked the game to improve the codebase, make it more similar to the arcade game and hopefully add more features.


Slacker can run on Python 3.7 or above. You can install it using pip.


  • Space: Start playing or place your stacking boxes.
  • Escape or q: Return to intro screen or quit.
  • 1 to 9: Set the speed of the game (default: 5).
  • 0: Increase the number of blocks currently moving.
