Die Hard 2: Die Harder - Manual
THEY SAY LIGHTNING NEVER STRIKES TWICE...
THEY WERE WRONG.
A major international airport becomes the arena for terror as an elite
special forces unit seizes control and threatens to bring planes plunging to
Their plan is swift, brutal and brilliant...but they didn`t count on the
presence of one man...John McClane.
You play the part of John McClane in this arcade action game based on the
No 1 U.S. and U.K. cinema hit, set over five explosive levels.
When the game has loaded you will be presented with three targets as follows:
Moving the sight using your mouse to the Start game target and pressing fire
will send you to Dulles airport to do battle with the terrorists.
Moving the sight over the Target range target will transport you to the
Police target range for some shooting practice.
Moving the sight over the other options target will produce another menu
screen with the following targets.

option is not enabled until you exit the options menu.
Moving the sight over Sound target allows you to select what sound is playing

effects, just music or no sound at all. Again, to select the required sound

LEVEL ONE - THE LUGGAGE CONVEYORS
Terrorists have taken over the baggage handling section of the airport
terminal. The noise of the machinery and the moving baggage provides them
with ideal cover. You must remove all terrorists from this section otherwise
their plan to rescue the evil General is certain to succeed!
LEVEL TWO - THE AIRPORT ANNEX
The terrorists next target is the radio communications dish on the roof of
the airport annexe. If this is destroyed they will have complete control of
the airspace around Washington D.C. and landing the General`s plane will be
an easy affair. The mechanical walkway provides excellent cover, unfortunate-
ly you happen to be on the wrong side of it!
LEVEL THREE - THE GENERAL`S ARRIVAL
The terrorist force has succeeded in the fist part of their plan. The evil
General is now sitting in his aircraft waiting to be led away to safety. Try
to make their task as hard as possible and you may even get the chance of
taking out the General! Beware of the many fuel cannisters around the runway
area, a few shots and they may explode!
LEVEL FOUR - THE SNOW-BIKE CHASE
You have discovered that the terrorists are using an old church nearby as a
base. As you arrive, however, they scream from the building aboard snow-
bikes. You grab a bike and give chase. Try to stop as many of the terrorists
escaping as you can otherwise they will be free to perpitrate a similar deed
LEVEL FIVE - SHOOTOUT ON JET`S WING
The terrorist`s hijacked plane is about to take off! You leap from a
helicopter onto the wing of the plane. Kill all of the terrorists on board
before the plane has chance to take off to stop the General from escaping.
When you shoot a terrorist, sometimes he will drop an icon to the floor. Some
of these icons will help you in your attempt to complete the game and others
will hinder you.
The icons dropped are as follows:
These appear as a white box with a red cross in the centre. When shot these
will boost your energy level, repairing any damage you may have recieved from
When shot you will be given an extra grenade.
This appears as a small jacket and when shot, it will make you invunerable to
the terrorist`s weapons for a few seconds. When you are in possesion of a
flak jacket it will appear in the score panel, as the effect starts to run
out it will flash before eventually dissapearing.
Various weapons will be dropped, they vary in speed of fire and also in the
power of effect they have on the terrorists. The weapons to be found in order
of least powerful to most powerful are as follows:
Beretta (single fire pistol).
Glock (triple fire hand held gun).
M16 (slow firing machine gun).
AK47 (fast firing machine gun).
Uzi 9mm (the ultimate in firepower).
However, when you are in possesion of a powerfull weapon make sure you don`t
shoot a less powerfull weapon as it will decrease your firepower.
FINALLY REMEMBER YOU ARE A POLICE OFFICER AND WILFUL DAMAGE OF PUBLIC
PROPERTY OR ANY HARM TO INNOCENT BYSTANDERS WILL RESULT IN A LOSS OF POINTS!
THE TARGET RANGE
Before entering into the game for real you have the option of going into the
target range to improve your shooting skills at the Police target range.
Civilian and terrorist targets will appear at windows and in doorways. You
have to decide in split seconds whether to shoot or hold fire. At the end of
the session you will be given a readout of your performance including:
Before you enter the game you should try to acheive a score of at least 50%
in the target range otherwise you will be fried in a real situation!
