Spot the differences in a medieval pop-up book.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The left and right pages of the "book" are supposed to be mirror images of each other. The player's job is to spot the objects that look askew and tap them to flip them around. The levels get progressively harder with less time and more objects to find.
Violence & Scariness
The story describes the hero using his sword to hit the Witch Queen between the eyes, causing her to fold into a speck of dust.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Headspin: Storybook is a collection of 20 spot-the-difference puzzles presented as a giant 3D pop-up book. The story follows a young farm lad who becomes a hero and saves the land from an evil witch. The time limits make the game difficult for younger (or slower) players; players need to be extremely quick to complete the levels before time runs out. If they manage to finish the story, they'll unlock an untimed free-play mode.

Is It Any Good?
HEADSPIN: STORYBOOK's pastoral setting is deceptively peaceful. An unrelenting timer and increasingly challenging puzzles make this a game that isn't particularly relaxing -- especially for people who get flustered by timers. Still, the game boasts colorful graphics and pleasant music, and if you fail a particular level you can sacrifice a few points to try it as often as you like without having to start all over. It's definitely one of the more unique ways to enjoy a pop-up book.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
