If you've got the bug-fixed DOS version from Bob's site, well, it comes
with the sources. You should be able to port version 3.0 (the latest) to
MacOS X and it'll work just fine. I just tested it on MacOS X 10.3.7, and
it works great (I had to rename BLAH.C files to blah.c and get rid of a
^Z character in queue.c, then compile with "gcc -o distella distella.c").

It disassembles fine with Distella 3.0 on Linux and OSX.

If you don't want to mess with compiling your own, here's the OSX binary:

Nice minigame, BTW. Fast and furious, and it gets damn difficult after
the second boss. Is this the finished game, or are you still tweaking it?
