    Press and hold the power button until it shuts down (5-10 seconds).
    You can also use Command-Option-Esc and force quit the application.

    EDIT: Nice edit GGJstudios :p

    Or press Command-Option-Escape which will show a list of running programs. Click on the program that is giving you trouble and then click the "Force Quit" button.
