Mike Henry has been credited for the sound driver creation of many SNES games along with Lawrence Hiller. He is the founding member of Chip Level Designs, and thus he worked for many clients who were responsible like Tommy Tallarico, Michelle Simon and the company Equilibrium.

(Note: These games list Mike Henry for the music programmer. For the games that credit his sound group, see Chip Level Designs.)

Audio Development

Henry's SNES driver is initally based on Nintendo's Kankichi-kun driver. He used three versions of the driver, the standard version when he started off using the driver, and then modified with the help of composers Michelle Simon and Tommy Tallarico (this driver version was in particular used in only four games like NFL Football, Super Slap Shot, Super Caesar's Palace and Super Slam Dunk), and then switched to a more basic sound driver. Then he modified and debugged Bitmasters' sound driver in 1994.
