The game abuses OpenGL.

The current version of the game will not run on OS X older than 10.9 because they now use some advanced features of OpenGL that will lock up the graphics card on older versions of OS X. Their official workaround is "upgrade to 10.9".

They upgraded to OpenGL 2.1, which is available since 2006. Previously they were using OpenGL 1.1.

Can I get the APK outside Google Play? I don't have a Google Account anymore. Funny note: cyanogenmod doesn't even come with Google Play. If you are looking for a store, I'd recommend 1mobile :http://www.1mobile.com/ Lots of crapware and fakes (search for minecraft), but there are official apps too and the store manage updates.
