For immediate release

State of Play and Brandwidth announce today the launch of the universal app‘Headspin: Storybook’ for iPad, iPhone and iPod. Based on the award-winning online game,‘Headspin: Storybook’ brings two great concepts to life, the‘spot-the-difference’ game and the pop-up book, weaving them into a magical story.

Beautifully illustrated and animated with handcrafted care, the game tests visual awareness skills against the clock as you spin the objects to complete the increasingly challenging levels. No two games will ever be the same, you get a different version of the book each time it’s opened.

The game is now in full HD for iPad and iPhone 4 users, and comes with a new playing mode called‘Free Play’, which allows you to play new pages of the book at your leisure.

Luke Whittaker, Director of State of Play says,

“’Headspin: Storybook’ engages the player with an immediately tactile experience, encouraging the same inquisitiveness you felt when first playing with pop-up books.  It’s perfect to pick up and play - it’s a simple mechanic, but one gets steadily more challenging, and all the time you’re being led through a story which is coming to life as you turn the page.”
