Now appears broken under 10.5.6. I once contacted the suppliers about the below mentioned "tanking" half way through. They offered me a free game from their other stock. Not exactly a fix. I "worked around it" by starting mid-way through the game. Hardly brilliant. Under 10.5.6 menu navigation is fine, but game freezes and the crashes out within seconds of entering play mode. I've contacted the suppliers but who knows...

I've played this game for a couple of years now off and on on 10.3 and 10.4. It's an enjoyable game to a degree, but the word "unstable" doesn't begin to describe it. Once in awhile I've lost and ended up with a score, but normally I get up into the level 30-40 area and then the game tanks (literally) on its own, with me way up in points and way ahead on tanks. That means a very high frustration factor as well, particularly when you were doing very well. But freezes and crashes are too reminiscent of why I left Windoze.

Overall, a great game. The graphics are very sharp looking and the gameplay is easy to pick up on. If you were to add some sort of multiplayer option (over the internet) I'm sure it would be even better.

Hmm.. All that you've said is true BUT given the date of your comment, I wonder if you've actually tried to play it for any length of time?
