[Found: Falling Down] Looking for Harald Müller game

Saw a video of this game on YouTube a few months ago and can not find it again. Basically it was a modified version of Touch'n Go by Cartersoft Productions.

I noticed that Harald Müller took many PD games and did small changes and released them commercially. In some games he just replaced the background. Here we have an example of that:

Pollymorf originally released by Andrew Campbell in 1993. Released one year later by Harald Müller with a different name: Balls. What a lazy guy! He released nearly 50 games for the Amiga and not all was created by him. He also used same music for all games. Now, I would not say that he stole the games. Maybe he got permission from the original authors.

Could give more examples. But this is not the reason for creating this thread. I'm looking for Harald Müller's version of Touch'n Go!

I think this is the game in question:
[ Show youtube player ]

Write his name as "Harald Mueller" to Youtube search and you'll get lots of results.

This guy has surely made a lot of games in a short time between the years 1992 - 1995. And most seem to be clones of other games.

For example this game:

Looks a lot like Dilemma:

I noticed some gfx in his games have been ripped from commercial games as well, like Vital Light, Tearaway Thomas, Speedball 2 etc.

IT IS! Thank you very much Master

The author of the original game posted in this thread. Seems that he has closed his account now. Too bad, otherwise, we could ask if he had permission to use the code

Indeed, this guy released many beta versions of Rock 'n Roll.

Such as Fireball:





The border graphics of Rock'n Roll found good use in Powerstones too: http://hol.abime.net/4531



And the art style of the background planet was clearly inspired by Blasteroids.

This sucks. Now I know the name of the game (Falling Down). But now I can't find it!

Video uploader says in the video title that the game can be found on the Gamer's Delight 2 and Aminet CD 2000. I downloaded that Aminet CD but game is not on it. Could not find Gamer's Delight 2.

HOL have all games from Gamer's Delight 1. Gamer's Delight 2 seems to have some more H.Muller games. It would be nice to get hold of this CD. Not only for Falling Down but also some other H.Müller games.

Checking here first. Else I will try asking the video uploader.

Hi Hipoonios, do you finally found Falling Down from Harald Muller? If still not, well, i found it!
I just separated it from Gamers Delight 2 Compilation as a standalone executable and converted into ADF file too, so if you and/or other users need it i can upload files here and/or in The Zone

If not too much trouble, do you think you could possibly create an image of the Gamers Delight 2 CD-ROM and upload to either a file hosting website or the EAB File Server?

Do you remeber when do you upload it? Looking for it into EAB FTP, in The Zone folder, on years subfolders, too. with no luck...
Hovewer, if your image can't be founded, i will try to make my own image and share it on The Zone!

Like i wrote on one of my post above, no problem for me to do that, considering that could not be a priority because NeoHippie just done the work very well!
But, first of all, in my opinion extracting every single game from that collection like i've done with Falling Down could be a better and more flexible task, for example for future Tosec and Whdload additions: what do you think about?
