It's not enough nowadays for a game to show promise. It has to follow through, ensnaring players for more than a couple of minutes, if it wants to really climb to the highest heights of the App Store charts.
Unfortunately for Tin Man Can, after a reasonably impressive opening it never quite manages to pull itself out of the sludge of mediocrity that so many half decent games get stuck in. There's nothing wrong with it, but it's nothing to write home about either.
The game casts you as a robot from the future who manages to get sucked into a wormhole. To get home, you need to traverse four different dimensions using your slightly lacklustre hovering engine to fly over gaps and obstacles.
While there are occasional flashes of what might have been, Tin Man Can is too bland to recommend
