Sqrxz 3 Updates (20-02-2013)

We had a major problem with Sqrxz 3. For some reason a wrong packaged data file got shared and causes troubles at the end of level four, making it impossible to succeed and getting further. We suppose that this happened at the last major update and would advise everyone to upgrade to the most recent version.

Fresh updated ports (including the correct maps already):

* Dreamcast – CDI Image (Thanks Xavier)
* Symbian OS S60 & Symbian OS UIQ3 (Thanks Lars)

Repacked ports:

* AROS
* Caanoo
* OpenDingux (Dingoo A320)
* GP2x
* Linux
* Mac OS X
* Motomagx
* NetBSD 5 / x86
* NetBSD 6 / PPC
* Playstation Portable (PSP)
* Windows
* Wiz

Ports not updated an therefore still buggy:

* Amiga OS 4
* Dreamcast – ISO Image
* Pandora
* MorphOS

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused :( For the downloads, please go here.
