Hi Brahma and thanks for raising the issue. You're not responsible for 
providing packaging, but since Debian - where this game is packaged 
originally - is made up of volunteers, they might not have had the 
time/priority to deal with this issue.

If I were you, I'd write an email to the Debian Games Team 
<pkg-games-devel at>, and ask them if they need 
assistance, and if there is anything that can be done to speed up the 
process of updating accaultcube to a new version in Debian.

You can also point them to this bug which is probably the same as what 
you're talking about:

That is, unless the collective mind of this mailinglist has a better 
idea :-)
