Maelstrom - German

Looking at the screenshots for Maelstrom (http://hol.abime.net/2376) it's quite obvious that the game was also released in German language The only listed language in HOL for Maelstrom is English, so I think this needs to be corrected

@TCD: Have you read the note in HOL?
There seems to be no proof, that the german version was official, its also bad translated.

This is what HF wrote:

Hellfire are back today with Maelstrom from Empire, although this is a
lame release, Empire never decided to release this in the shops BUT! as
always, we managed to get our hands on it. It plays fine but most of the
text is in german except the icons which are still in english.

Many have doubted us on our release of arcade snooker saying it was
just a demo, but Team17 did an exclusive deal between them and EMAP
publishing to distribute the game via CU Amiga magazine as they did not
feel it was commercial viable to release it in the shops. This game will
NEVER be released in the shops, so we don't want to see a final sales
because there wont be one!!

Maelstrom (1994)(Empire)(Disk 1 of 6)[h HF]
I think the TOSEC HF version is the german version, unfortunately this
version does not work, i have never got it to work, and if i remember right it was wrote in this forum disk 2-6 is bad.
But the good news is , i have a HD-version from HF too, and this version works, upload?

From the analysis and resourcing of the original I've been doing, it seems all messages in my version are in english and that the game was rushed out of the door.
