As games go, Headspin: Storybook by Brandwidth isn't the most challenging, but perhaps that's the point as it hopes to weave a simple tale of a poor farm-boy as he journeys to save his kingdom from an evil witch.

Her wicked power is transforming the countryside, subtly twisting the world around so it's not quite the way it was. In this story-book land this means you will need to find the objects not correctly mirrored on each side of the pop-up pages and tap them to spin them back around. Before each level you're given a snippet of story and the time you have to find a set amount of incorrect objects. As you progress the time grows shorter and the object list gets longer, but should you fail you can dive back in to another iteration of the page you were on.

Headspin makes up for the simplistic gameplay with its gorgeous visuals that pop with color and look fantastic on the iPad and Retina screens. Little moving people also add to the visual confusion to give players more of a challenge, but it also has the side-effect of bringing the world to life for a brief moment as well.

Headspin: Storybook is a simple concept executed elegantly and while it may not prove too challenging to older audiences it's a neat game for children to explore and for parents to share with them. Hopefully future updates add more stories or content to the game, but for now it's a short, but interesting game to share with your young ones.
