    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | LED Cinema Display | iPhone 4 | iPad 2
    There's an great site to check app compatibility with Lion:

    Mac OS X Lion Application Compatibility - RoaringApps

    You can also check out our Apps forum here:
    OS X - Applications and Games - Mac-Forums.com

    You should also check with the developer of the app to see if it's compatible or if there's an updated version.

    Surely this is a question you should be asking the developers of Minecraft first??

    Yes it does...... but it needs the optional java download:
    Java for OS X Lion
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Do you get an error message or something that signifies what the issue is?

    Try deleting your bin folder. It's in " library > application support > minecraft".
    ... If one falls flat on their face, at least they were moving in the right direction...

    Forward...

    Make sure you have Java installed. If you're using Lion, note that Java isn't included (like it is in Snow Leopard) so you'll need to go to the link in post #4 to get it.
