Game crushing on the MacBook Air
Hi, Super Meat Boy crushes at different points, randomly all the time on the MacBook Air 2012 and 2013. Does anyone know the solution to this problem, because i would really like to play this game without any problems.

It appeares that Super Meat Boy does not run on Mountain Lion OSX due to laziness of the game creators. So it is not fault of the Mac computers or the OSX.

It is. You need to specifically alter the game to fit Apple, which is basically a severely downgraded, DRMified Linux (it literally is, if you look at the source code, but that's a story for another time.)

To do that you need to learn an entirely new set of instructions, which are alien both to PC and Linux. Imagine being told everything you ever experienced was a dream. That is what happens when a PC or Linux user tries to program for Mac, or vice versa.

Apple don't make computers just shiny intel products that anyone with a skill set can do.

Apple software < Just an average laptop that's over priced.

i'm not arguing here whether apple products are the best or not. I'm just saying that this game is not playing on MacBook Air. Plenty of games are now ported to Mac OSX and they are working properly. It was working, now it is not.
