    In this game
    it's either
    them or you.

    Mow down every back-flipping lizard freak in your path. The gold you earn pumps up your speed, skill and weapon power.

    You'll need a partner to watch your butt. Recruit a friend or let the computer back you up.

    Use tactics like crossfires and ambushes or the Chaos Engine will turn you into a charred pile of gristle.

Back of Box - Amiga CD³²:

    Sometime during the last centrury, an experimenter with time, space and early computers created a bizarre machine.
    The inventor's name was Baron Fortesque The machine was...

    The Chaos Engine

    Although primitive, the machine became incredibly powerful and went crazy, turning ordinary humans and household pets into razor toothed, armour-plated killing machines.

    Enter six hard nailed mercenaries for hire. The Thug, Preacher, Mercenary, Gentleman, Navvie and Brigand. These ball breakers are armed to the teeth with over 25 weapons and a host of special, destructive devices peculiar to their class. Select two characters to form your party and enter the World of Chaos. The sprawling adventure covers four graphic worlds and 16 levels loaded with fiendish traps, puzzles and secret passages. Get your hands on sawn-off shotguns, molotov cocktails and a huge amount of armament and buy, blag or blast your way through hordes of different monsters to do battle with the ultimate killing machine, THE CHAOS ENGINE!

    A DASH OF HISTORY, A SPLASH OF TESTOSTERONE, AND A TOUCH OF H.G. WELLS ON ACID.


    Meet the Chaos Engine - a side of merry olde England you'd rather not know. But forget about tea and crumpets and all that jolly rotten stuff. 'Cause this arcade-action style CD-ROM game transforms your PC into a gruesome battlefield of psychotic monsters and ruthless warriors. We're talking armor-plated, razor-toothed killing machines here.

    So pick one of six mercenary buddies, stock up on twenty-five deadly weapons and explore four fiendish worlds with 16 levels. But keep an eye peeled for mincemeat-making traps, life-saving power-ups and assorted keys. It's Britain's award-winning designers, the Bitmap Brothers, at their bloody best. God save the Queen? God save your ass.

    "The best two player game on the PC... a strong contender for the best PC action game of all time." -PC Games
