Installing via the itch.io client fixed the problem.

I just got an email that a new version of Gladiabots is out and that I can download it. But I used the itch.io app to download and install the previous version. So...
Does the OSX itch.io app automatically download and install updated games?
This is a very nice game but I have a pet peeve with games that play out on a scrolling map...and that is when the mouse cursor is moved to the map/screen edges, the map scrolls. There should be an option to turn edge scroll on/off. With edge scroll turned off the map should be able to be scrolled with the arrow or wasd keys, or perhaps right mouse button drag.
In this game the edge scroll is serious because just moving the mouse cursor to the end turn arrow at the bottom left of the screen will cause the map to fly away from the view that you may have wanted to keep.
So just put in that option and an alternate way to scroll the map and the game will be really good.
Version 0.1.3 Got as far as the Attack tutorial but couldn't figure out what to do there. I'd just run the AI and it'd get killed and let me Retry, over and over. There was no help nor tutorial-like action.
