How can I force quit it without having to reboot the whole computer? It's a full screen program, and I can't minimize it once it freezes. I have tried the typical Cmd + Option + Shift + Esc for 3 to 5 seconds, but nothing happens.

    No shift is necessary, and that might be stopping you.

    If it doesn't work without shift, your program may not be compatible with your computer or operating system.  

    To make sure a program is compatible with Lion, check this link:

    To make sure the program is compatible with your Mac, check the manufacturer's website for both GPU and CPU requirements.    GPU is in Apple menu -> About this Mac -> More info -> System Report -> Graphics/Displays

    Mountain Lion is Mac OS X 10.8, due out this summer. Any reference to it is based on people who have violated their non-disclosure agreement.  No one will know until its release what it will really be compatible with.

    If the GeForce 9600 GT or Radeon HD 4670 is not mentioned in your System Profiler report, you may not be compatible. "Better" is subjective to the programmer's opinion of what is better, and often has nothing to do with the actual GPU.   Is your RAM Apple installed?

    That's not Apple's compatibility listing.  It is a third party that runs Roaring Apps.
