Title The Chaos Engine (Second Review) Company The Bitmap Brothers Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 or 2 HD installable patch on aminet Compatibility All Amigas (AGA Patch available) Submission Michael Carrillo Review A bizarre experiment by Baron Fortesque with space, time and early computers led to the creation of the Chaos Engine, unfortunately the machine becomes powerful and then went crazy. It turned man and beast into mindless monsters with little or no intelligence. The Baron realising his mistake hires 6 ruthless mercenaries. Enter the Thug, Navvie, Preacher, Brigand, Mercenary and Gentleman. (each has their own personality and style including weapons) You take control of one of the above characters and the computer will take control of another character of your choice (one player mode) Your mission is simple - destroy the Chaos engine. This game has classic stamped all over it. This is as near to coin op heaven as you are likely to encounter -This, is the Rolls Royce of Amiga shoot 'em ups. Quite simply from the moment you hear the words 'Players activated', the great thumping Techno style manic music in the background, the sound effects, the graphics (AGA Version), the baddies, the traps, the powerups, they all add up to a shoot everything in sight frenzy. The game is viewed from above (top down) There are secret areas to access, nodes to activate which will open up the exit to the level, coins to collect in order to gain power ups, intelligence etc, etc. There are four worlds, comprising of 16 levels in total. Each world is different form the previous one in terms of look and feel, baddies, music, background, layout etc, etc. I could go on, but I really couldn't do this game justice even with twenty pages, do yourself a favour, if you haven't got this, beg, steal or burrow a copy (but don't pirate!) and download the HD install patch from Aminet. Without doubt this is the perfect game for when you want to let off steam, turn the volume up, sit yourself comfortably and enjoy!
