Wow - the Hightlight is the "Wah" when you blow something up. And that sucks. Terrible, terrible game. Don't waste your download limit.

The default key mappings really need to be changed, they make no sense. As a previous poster said arrow keys anyone? The text rendering has serius problems, it's way to thin to read on a 1024x768 monitor. Having a vector renderign engine is nifty, but make sure it's actually usable for the majority of people using your program. Horrid performance on a 400Mhz G3. Maybe try using GarageBand for your music next time. The graphics are hardly pro, nothing about this game is. But everyone has to start somewhere. Keep it up guys, you'll get better.

G3 400 MHz??? Panther relies on OpenGL a lot, and Quartz is not a viable solution for real-time games. QuickDraw is basically obsolete. I know, it's a simple game, it shouldn't demand a lot of power, but that's how the current OS is laid out. If your machine can't handle OpenGL properly, you are really out of luck with the new generation of games, even the simple ones. They all use OpenGL.

Recently, with the rise of the free software movement, no-cost software has improved in quality. However, this one goes all retro on us. graphics - geometric and dull. sound - the only sound effect is the tyre squeal when you die music - sounds like elephant farts controls - whatever happened to cursor keys? Y'know? the ones with arrows on 'em? Playability-wise, it's shite. Just a bunch of geometric objects scrolling down the screen hurling things at you. Some of them kill you. Yes, that's right: just some of them. Utter tat. The music constitutes 2MB of the download. Just don't bother. Download some icons and move them around the Desktop for five minutes - it's more entertaining.

If you've played Ikaruga, then you know how hard this game is. Actually, this one is a little harder. The music, while totally kick-ass, doesn't quite fit the theme of Icarus. No problems with gameplay or anything. Works for 10.3 just fine. Nice download.
