Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball reminds me a lot of the fun I've had playing Quake 3 Arena and Unreal Tournament. It's a tremendous amount of fun. Mac laptop and Magic Trackpad gamers, you're going to need a multi-button mouse unless you're a much more skilled trackpad gamer than me.
Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball was released in early 2014 as Steam Early Access release, but now it's available as a general download. And with Mac system requirements going back to Snow Leopard, chances are your Mac can run it.
