It downloaded OK, but when I attempt to run the app, it crashes starting up.
I've reported this to Apple (in the usual way via the crash reporter). However, I'm wondering if there's a known workaround to get me going.
At face value, the crashed stack trace seems to be enumerating paper sizes per available printers. I have exactly one printer configured (a Xerox Phaser), so maybe there's something I can tweak to do Game Maker running.
Obviously, it would be good to have a proper fix though - pushed through the app store.
Looks like I'll have to wait to introduce my kids to programming
