Stone skimming is a worldwide pastime, although depending on where you come from it could be called skipping rocks, baking pancakes, letting the frogs out, letting the ducks out or making white-caps. Whatever you might call it, the rules and fun factor are the same wherever you’re playing… and now that could be anywhere with the Golakes Go Skimming app.
The aim of the game is to choose the right stone and throw it across the water. Your iPhone / iPod Touch becomes your stone – the trick is in the action you use to swing your device to get the most hops.
- Four lakes for you to choose from: Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater and Wastwater (voted Britain’s best view) with high resolution water effects
- Unique skimming mechanic for both left- and right-handed players
- Music by the Cumbrian musician Jamie Sims
Just be careful not to let go of the iPhone – but most of all have fun!
