The very thing that makes this an attractive title for gamers of all ages and backgrounds – its simplicity – is the same thing that will likely cause gamers to stop playing: it's a little too easy and mindless.
You'll likely play it frequently and often without thinking. Skipping Stone is the kind of game you play when you have five minutes to spare and need something to occupy your hands. Given its outrageously affordable price, this makes it a definite must buy.
It does have a ridiculously simple one-tap gameplay mechanic, the art style and music is cute and catchy, and there is that 'one more try' allure to go for high scores. However, it doesn't quite offer enough to compete with the best of the best casual games.
