Pushing Tin allows you to try your hand at one of the most intense and demanding jobs in the world. As an Air Traffic Control Wannabe, your job is to safely get all aircraft from point A to point B as quickly and safely as possible. It starts off pretty easy but things can get out of hand as the levels increase. This game is based on an old Atari 800 game called Kennedy Approach which I loved playing back in the day.

Instructions:
Issue clearances to the aircraft to get them all safely through your airspace. You can tell them to climb, descend, turn, depart and land. Collect more points by increasing the speed of the simulation. Watch out though, make a mistake while hot dogging and the penalties increase as well! The first few scenarios are intentionally slow so you can learn the basics. Later levels add thunderstorms and different types of aircraft. You'll be wishing you could slow it down more. The in-game instructions and tutorials will provide more information. Have fun!

Ugh...

I'm gonna be blunt with you: this game is boring. REALLY boring. There's no music, no sound, th graphics are unbelievably bland, and the gameplay is just slow. Here's how you would fix this game: Add fitting music and sound, make the planes move a little faster, and don't make it so difficult to move them around. If I click on a plane and press a direction, it should move in that direction. My only goal should be to direct all the planes towards the runway and press "A" or something to tell them to descend. Every time a plane crashes or runs into something, I lose a life. You can get bonus points for landing multiple planes quickly, but that means they'll be close to each other, so you have to play carefully. Also, the map is horrible. It's just......gray. How about some cities, or a map of the country? That would make me feel like I'm actually flying somewhere! I know this is based off an old atari game, but that was atari, and this is newgrounds. The gameplay has been eclipsed by much better concepts.

Very boring. Could not get into it at all

Meh, low graphics, seemingly little effort. Good "test" game but I just wasn't feeling it whatsoever. Gave it a shot though. GL
