Die Hard (C64)
Die Hard is the name of three video games, one released for the Commodore 64 in 1990, one released for the TurboGrafx-16 in 1990 and the other for the NES in 1991 by Activision (not to be confused with the earlier DOS video game created by Dynamix in 1989). Its gameplay is based on the 1988 film of the same name. During the game, the player rescues hostages and battles with terrorists from a top view perspective at Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles.

The late Scott Etherton did a good job writing the music. However, the driver is far too simple for 1990. It was also used in Who Framed Roger Rabbit (C64), which credits Jim Andron for original music and Etherton for "Special Magic". Since Etherton was also a programmer, it is likely that he programmed the driver. Still, this, as well as whether the 6581 or 8580 was used, should be checked with co-workers on both games, like James J. Host and Baron Reichart Kurt von Wolfsheild.
