NEEDS AN UPDATE
I used to play this game on my PC, and it has always been addictive and fun. I was thrilled to find it in the App Store and the play was brilliant. That is until I came to exit. The message 'are you sure you want to quit' comes up, you say yes and then everything freezes. I had to turn off my iMac at the mains as the only way to get out of it. Be warned. This needs an urgent update to put right.
Enjoyable puzzle game
Playing the game is fun, on starting the game on my Mac Mini (early 2009) it gives a warning saying it's not been tested on Mac Mini, but the game seems to run fine. As I only have a smallish 18" widescreen monitor rather than anything "full HD", it may be working because the resolution isn't turned way up, but it looks good and plays without freezing.
Zero support for Mac?
Really liked this type of programme on PC. Downloaded the Mac app and it just locks up - no mouse and no way to exit without a complete power off shut down. Wrote to iWin for support and they came back saying they don't offer support for Mac OS!!
