A note on the Universal requirement: When you cmd-i the app, it says "PowerPC". This is not actually the case because the game is written Java. When the app is clicked it switches over to the native (universal) Java runtime. You can see this for yourself if look at the console. The first thing the app says is: "[JavaAppLauncher] application launched with ppc-thin application stub. Using native application stub instead."
