Controls are really basic, you automatically run through the level and you can tap and hold to hover and let go to descend keep in mind your hovering is limited by your fuel. At its core its a one tap game. The design of the game has a different sort of cartoon art to it which gives a sense of a outer galactic world. On top of that are some great visuals along with a six-song soundtrack.

Theres over 60 levels for you to go across and play through, additionally you can even play against friends in a head to head multiplayer race. This adds on to the game play of tin man can.
