Before it was great, now buggy

I used to own a copy of this on a cd but the software went out of date. Naturally when I saw that it was in the app store and thus supposedly working, I naturally baught it. However I have run into consistant problems with the app correctly fitting, and aligning, to my screen. I have had minor problems similar to this in all apps but this is the most severe I have encountered. Thefore I am inclined to believe that this app requires fixing. 1/5 until fixed.

Didn't accept mouse input in OS X Lion

This app did not work properly. It installed fine and, after a few screen flashes, it opened. We saw the welcome screen and heard the music but could not go further. Needed to power down the iMac to recover. Maybe we will try again if they upgrade the app.


The game starts ok on my Mac Mini running Snow Lion, but it won't work with a wireless trackpad, I had to use my old USB mouse,
