Version 1.1.1 like a missle, hits the mark

Update to my prior review. This version allows keyboard control of your fighter which means it also allows gamepad control.
Its a fun game in the genre of classic arcade slider with very nice graphics and smooth action. The new control options are a welcome fix and make this a great value.

Stated System Requirements are Inaccurate

The stated system requirements are OS X 10.6 or later, 64-bit processor. However, if you have OS X 10.6 you will get the following error message:

Library not loaded: /usr/lib/libcurl.4.dylib
Referenced from: /Applications/
Reason: Incompatible library version: StarfighterOverkill requires version 7.0.0 or later, but libcurl.4.dylib provides version 6.0.0

The tech support was prompt to offer solutions; installing a newer version of the curl library. Unfortunately the install scripts also do not run properly in 10.6.

After going back and forth for about a week I was advised to upgrade to Mavericks. (Which I do not want to do… I have heard to many negatives about the switch)

If the game requires Mavericks, then that should be stated in the system requirements.
