Review by Pixiestix2015

W.E.L.D.E.R. - I gave this ONE star because, I have this as an app on my iPhone and iPad and absolutely love it — So, I decided to see if it was available for my MacBook air and voila it was to PURCHASE. Every time I open the app my computer freezes and can’t do ANYTHING!!!! I have to shut down the whole thing — I see many other similiar posts and I pray you can find the time for those of us who love the game and PAID for it, to fix the issues that are causing our computers to freeze. When you fix the issue I wil gladly change my rating. If you are thinking about buying welder for your Apple based computer, don’t bother — it won’t work — this message was left on March 9, 2015. Find another game until they can fix the issue and you see more positive ratings. Hope this helps future purchasers, I wouldn’t have bought this if I knew there was still an issue.

Freezes showing torch and I must force quit. Version 1.21 - I have always enjoyed this APP. However, it has started simpy freezing up. Opens like it is going to run, but the pointer turns to the torch and will not do anything without force quit. I have sent it to the trash and downloaded it again from APP store, but same thing. I am running Yosemite, but has always worked with it before. Please fix it or return money.

Review by up207

Fails with each OS X upgrade. - This is my favorite game and I’d like to give it 5 stars but it seems to fail when Apple issues a new version of OS X. I’ve had this game for several years and it failed when I upgraded to Mountain Lion and it took months for them to fix. After installing Yosemite, it started crashing again. I sent them the information and the first page or two of the dump several months ago and have not gotten any response. This is the only program I have ever had fail after a system upgrade and this one has done it twice.

Review by briarcat

Has begun to crash - The game is fine on my iPad, and had been working on my laptop. No longer. It froze, and I had to shut down the computer. When the game opened next, I got the WELDER screen and blowtorch, but nothing happened. After a couple of attempts, I deleted and re-installed the game. Same result. OSX isn’t represented on the support website. Not good, friends.
