I've played many platform games and once in a while there comes a little gem that just shines with a big smile on its face, that smile is Storm in a Teacup.

The premise is simple, guide a young boy by the name of Storm in a teacup around a magical land full of mystery and surprises. You control Storm by moving and jumping/floating. You have a jumping meter - therefore, you can only jump and float for a limited period of time. Careful use of jumping and timing is required around the tricky areas.

Graphically, the title is a marvellous treat to the eyes, with great bright and vibrant colors of characters, enemies, objects and backgrounds. The sound and music suit the theme perfectly, a nice surreal and upbeat tempo plays throughout the levels.

What I really like about the game is the fact that it draws you in subtly, like a good old fairytale, it immerses you into its world and you just don't want it to end. But alas, everything comes to an end eventually. There are 40 levels in total and they get progressively harder as you advance. Storm in a Teacup is a great game for all ages and gamers alike.
