Has anyone played this game on a Mid 2011 Mac mini? How does it perform?

Downloading now. I'll follow up shortly, but it should work without any issue since the Intel HD 3000 is supported. Especially, with 8GB of RAM you will have 512MB of reserved VRAM which meets the recommended specs.

This game is great on the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. Looking forward to it on a Mac.

Looking forward to your experiences.

I have the 2.7 i7 w/8GB RAM and the dedicated AMD 6630 graphics card, not the shared HD3000 chip.

Unfortunately, I can't play on my 2011 Mac mini 2.7GHz Dual-Core Intel i7 with AMD 6630M because it's a dedicated HTPC.

I did play on my early 2011 15" MBP with 1GB GDDR and it had no problem with large textures and antialias on at native resolution.

The 2011 Mac mini Server with 8GB 1866MHz Kingston Hyper X on the Intel HD 3000 had no problem at 1280x720 with everything turned down. I could probably turn on large textures or antialias, but likely not both.
