Skip Lake is a casual, minimalistic logic puzzle about breaking pots.

Very enjoyable puzzle game. Simple in nature logic puzzle about figuring out the right path by guiding the ball bounces with a few types of pillars. About half of the 125 levels are easy, not needing a lot of thought, while the other half will prove to be a moderate challenge to break the golden pot or to find the special item. The only weird thing I noticed were weird ball physics on some specific bounces. They were all created from puzzle solutions that were wrong, in that way, they helped lead me to the right solution. Satisfying sound effects for the bounces, relaxing music, nice looking graphics make for a nice and casual experience, just don't go expecting a big puzzle challenge.

For achievement hunters:
Complete the 125 levels while breaking the golden pots, find the hidden objects, fix the camera and use the backpack's phone.

The game is all style and no substance. There are game-breaking bugs where the stone glitches through obstacles; and 125 levels even though the game has at most a 1-digit number of original ideas, so the rest is filler; one level started in a solved state; etc. Overall, this was a wonderfully presented but utterly empty experience.

This game is very good, the levels are super creative, the effect of the ball hitting things is really cool, and the graphics are beautiful. I highly recommend this game.

Delicious and well built indie game!

Peaceful, calm and also intriguing Skip Lake is a piece of art, definately one of RSoft's greatest works.

By the way, i'm curious to see what are those history pieces all about lol, very mysterious...

A simple concept with a few additional mechanics added over the course of the game. Neither long nor expensive, so an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a little puzzle game.

That the game to have in your game library to relax, with a beautiful setting and a very fluid game, you can lose yourself in time.
And from the beautiful menu, it looks like it's not that short and it's still super cheap

A solid, relaxing puzzle game. Not especially taxing, but that can be a good thing if you are up for its laid-back vibe. Having a lot of background with puzzle games myself, I got through it rather quickly, but still good value for its low price. Definitely recommended -- especially if you are looking for a calming experience.

It's a fun waste of time with some secrets to discover. It's a little bit buggy in triggering the achievements, but they do all trigger.

Casual puzzles with a peaceful ambience. Most solutions amount to lining up the most intuitive positions, with a few requiring some more tries. While quite easy, it is fun and rewarding. There are also hidden objects to find which give a bit of story. My only issues: no touchscreen support, so it's a lot of touchpad/mouse clicking. Also the backgrounds move when you move your cursor,even when you are just moving from the reflectors to the start button on every level, which I found a little annoying. It would be nice to be able to turn this off and have the screen only move when you actually move the cursor to an edge.
Overall good, nice graphics, calm music.

This is an enjoyable, relaxing, and addictive game with seriously catchy music. The different pillar types and hidden items add to the fun experience and create an added challenge. Highly recommended if you enjoy puzzle games. I only wish there were more levels.

Nice puzzle game. Relaxing and easy. 125 levels, some with additional goals.
Different puzzle mechanics to keep it interesting.
Very nice graphics, animations and sound. Certainly recommended!
Will take about 1.5 ~ 2 hours to complete.

I highly recommend this game. Soothing and satisfying, a little bit easy but it does make you think a bit especially on the later levels. About 2 hours to complete.

Short, not too difficult reflection game. Usually these mechanics are used with light rays that have to end up in a certain location; in this case it's a stone that magically keeps bouncing over water. Difficulty is not very consistent, some puzzles will take some pondering and tweaking and retrying, others will be clear at the first glance.
I very much liked the visuals and the sound effects, and found myself looking for longer routes to listen to the new 'melodies'. The soundtrack was definitely not for me, and I had to turn it off every single time I started the game. It also did not remember my preference to play windowed and bounced back to full screen every restart. My last little peeve was that you can't return to the menu or home screen between levels - you have to start or redo a level to get back the menu.
All that said, I picked this game up during a sale and spent a few very enjoyable relaxed hours in it. Definitely recommended if you need something zen that makes you feel like you know what you're doing.
