Barnslig knows the perfect cure to midday blahs is a soft, melodic soundtrack, atmospheric sound effects, and simple, engaging puzzling in the Sky Garden. To play just click on each tree to turn it into water, without drowning any trees you haven't clicked on yet. A clicked tree becomes a river that extends in all four directions on the grid around it, and will block any other river from passing through it, allowing you to carefully protect un-changed trees with the very thing that would otherwise kill it. If you've got a shovel, clicking on the ground will dig up a single square of the terrain, which will also prevent water from passing over it. Of course, as time progresses, you'll find yourself faced with more things you'll have to take into consideration in order to properly saturate the landscape.
Is Sky Garden simple? Asbolutely, but almost elegantly so. It's the sort of straight-forward puzzling that engages your brain without burying you in different elements and concepts. The mellow presentation is top-notch, and players who want something to relax them even as it kicks their brain on ever-so-gently will find something almost hypnotically compelling about clicking their way through the stages. The simplistic concept and "hey, just chillax, dude" vibe might make this one too straight-forward for some, but Sky Garden conjures up a pleasant, cleanly designed little puzzle experience perfect for ruminating on the endless march of time and nature with. Or, y'know, just relaxin'. Whatever floats your boat.
