Lethal Weapon (C64)
Lethal Weapon is a video game based on the film series of the same name created by Shane Black. It was developed by Ocean Software and Eurocom and released in 1992 and 1993 by Ocean and Nintendo. It was released in conjunction with Lethal Weapon 3, the third installment of the series.
In this version Riggs or Murtaugh can only be selected at the beginning, the game is linear instead of allowing players to select their missions, and most importantly the levels were redesigned.
For 1992, Mark Cooksey did a good job writing with the simple music. He had probably tediously written the music in assembly, which used his sound driver from the C64. Behind the title song data, a track consisting of drum samples is hidden, however, it is unused and largely invalid.
