Countdown to Extinction

I am looking for a PD game called Countdown to Extinction from Alastair Murray. Does anyone have it? Or his another game called Kill em all? Looks their are named after Megadeth and Metallica albums

It seems downloads don't work from that site, but he mentions other links, mostly Aminet. So I will look there. Also Countdown to Extinction seems to be incomplete. At least - he mentions some fonts in the readme while there aren't any in the archive. I will try to get it working somehow, though.

It took some time, but got it running.

1. You need to create a drawer in the games directory with the name libs and copy the required library files he mentions in the readme to this directory.
2. Create a drawer in the games directory called fonts. No files needed in this drawer. The drawer must just be there.
3. Now start the game using the ICON <-- IMPORTANT

Now there is another problem, game crashes after you have completed the first mission ;( Don't know why... probably missing fonts or something. Snoopdos reports no missing files.

This guy was pretty active. Another game created by him is Blobby. One of his worst games.

Are there .adfs of these games? If not, would someone out there on the internets be kind enough to make them? Thanks: these games seem intriguing.
