Pretty Good So Far (how to purchase??)

I just got to the point where i need to buy it. I am very grateful for the demo - it was a perfect amount of time/play. I got the message that I am unauthorized to purchase from the app store which means that I do not have the most up to date version of mac BUT I cannot figure out how to purchase it from here. I just dont see an option.
That being said, this is a must buy. Even considering that the voice actors are horrible LOL its a fun & engrossing game. For me, the most important aspect to this type of game - and I play many of them in this genre. I try to play ONLY this genre, as a matter of fact - the most important is that the length of gameplay be at least decent. That means I dont want to have two or three hours of play and then the thing is over. To me that is unforgiveable.
Sooo this hopefully will be nice & long if/when I can figure out how to buy.

Great game, I love it, but...

I wanted a free game for my new computer and when there were no good ones that weren't lite or for small children, I found this. I was immediately addicted and I loved the game. It wasn't challenging and brought me entertainment in the car or at home, because it didn't require wifi connection. Then, all of a sudden in the middle of my game, it stopped me and said I had to pay a whopping $7 for the full version. I was upset because this really was a great game but I'm just not interested in paying that much for a time-filler. If you're looking for temporary entertainment, however, I say go for it. Just don't get too attached or you'll be upset like I was when it stops you.

Great, for a demo!

As with most others, I was impressed with the detail and length of this game for only being a demo. I contacted the company because I couldn't purchase the full version either - they responded within 24 hours (I guess I'm lucky since others still have yet to hear from someone), and found out that you can only buy the full version if you are running Lion. The rep did say that they plan on releasing a full version for Mac (didn't say which version it would apply to) in the near future so we can purchase from the App Store and not just In-App. So here's to hoping that they release it for Snow Leopard...cause I really don't want to "upgrade" to Lion just for one game!
