If you will pardon the understatement,
This game is not ready for prime time !

I found it impossible to reach the S/W developer.

I WANT a REFUND !

There are so many things wrong with this game that I
certainly will NEVER play it again.

The game has no "difficulty levels" and is so absurdly easy that after 2 hrs. of playing I quit when my arm was going numb.

I have played virtually every "Arkanoid" or "BreakOut" style arcade game ever distributed. Yes, my first Mac was in 1985 and I was already playing the original ARKANOID on my Apple Iic.

I played this game with ONE working EYE as I am recovering from cataract surgery -- and it was still too easy to play.

There are almost NO bonuses or capsules of any interest and there are jewels that upon being hit, nothing happens, not even a sound.

The worst failing of all is that there is no recording of your score.
There is no point to playing when there is no score to play against !

I could go on and on, but what is the point ?

Yes the developer has charged a low price, but when you send a dinner back to the kitchen when finding the food to be putrid, the price of dish is NOT a concern. It is a matter of principle.

Are you kidding ?

Are you seriously suggesting that I post an email address HERE ?

@hurricanehal-it's the lite version because there are fewer levels. I'm working on another version of this that will have a few more levels. I just wasn't sure how to classify this version from the future version that is going to be released.

The reason it is 10.7 or later is because I haven't tested it on earlier versions of Mac OSX. I'm currently running it on a 2007 Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook-so you might be fine if your specs are better than that particular MacBook.

I was trying to email you to provide you with some constructive criticism and useful suggestions, but you did NOT provide any links to communicate with you via email, etc.

WHy does this require 10.7? Is there a technical reason?
