STORM IN A TEACUP is a good game, but it falls a bit short of being great -- though it's hard to say why. The app has a very unique look, like something from a child's imagination, and has plenty of good puzzles to solve and items to find. Perhaps what's missing is the lack of a story tying things together. There's a narrative on the iTunes store page, but nothing's built into the game. While Storm, the teacup-riding hero of the game, will charm you, there's never a real emotional connection with him, so you don't feel a sense of loss when you fail. That said, the controls respond wonderfully, an essential quality in an arcade game, and you may find yourself playing for long stretches without realizing it. For 99 cents, it's a no-brainer.

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.
