Pictorial HD

Pictorial HD is a game that all you have to do is rotate the stars to turn them into a picture. This game gives you a brief tutorial as you play on how to rotate the stars, and after that you have to figure out how the picture will turn out. The biggest clue is to see when the lines will show up between each star. You get six different storylines which are Night City, Arctic, Treasure Island, Fairy Forest, Halloween and Sea World, and it is optimized with all iPads. It plays very well on any other non-iPad device. This will help develop the Spatial Reasoning skill which is a common part of intelligence tests, pre-employment tests and admission tests to certain educations. It also is generally regarded as one of the most basic reasoning abilities together with verbal reasoning, logical reasoning, numerical reasoning and abstract reasoning.
