Not working under Lion - This game will not start under Lion (10.7.2) operating system. All games with the title "Crazy machines" stop working as soon as i install this new operating system...

Doesn’t work on Mavericks 10.9.1 - My 8 year old loves the game and likes to play it at school during computer lab. We downloaded so he could use at home, but it doesn’t work on our OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 machine. It crashes immediately upon starting the application. It works fine on out other MacBook Pro running 10.8 of OS X. The App Store should check for compatibility before selling you something that will not work on the version of the machine you are purchasing it from! Viva Media should also keep its latest version of the game current with the latest release of the OS.

Review by Wrothmonk

Before it was great, now buggy - I used to own a copy of this on a cd but the software went out of date. Naturally when I saw that it was in the app store and thus supposedly working, I naturally baught it. However I have run into consistant problems with the app correctly fitting, and aligning, to my screen. I have had minor problems similar to this in all apps but this is the most severe I have encountered. Thefore I am inclined to believe that this app requires fixing. 1/5 until fixed.

Didn't accept mouse input in OS X Lion - This app did not work properly. It installed fine and, after a few screen flashes, it opened. We saw the welcome screen and heard the music but could not go further. Needed to power down the iMac to recover. Maybe we will try again if they upgrade the app.
