This is more a rant that a review so bear with me...


Chaos Engine year 1993. Reactions "This game is too hard whine whine whine"

Chaos Engine year 2013. Reactions "This game is too hard whine i want this whine i want that what a shame i have been a fan my whole life whine".

I have not yet read any good points why this truly original HD remake game would suck. this game is rock solid in design. I can't even name another game that would be like it and have the same level of thought used to design it. And dont even start on the graphics. they are bitmap brothers style graphics. Their trade mark. Whoever wants to mess with that needs to jump into an icy lake.

Remake adds some functionality but doesn't try to add too much to the mix so it's just 'a HD remake'. Skip the HD jokes. it's 1920x1080 resolution so it's enough to qualify for the 'HD' title in my books. You can even add filters to make it look different - something that can be usefull when played on large TV screens. I personally don't need the extra gimmicks but i don't condemn the game for including them.

Since i dont have a amiga lying around nor will i download pirated images of this game then bying this game is the only way to go. No, i will also not get an amiga just to 'compare the original to the HD remake'. I have fond memories of the original and thats the way i want to keep it. Nitpicking about details that just doesnt matter and then degrading this game furiously is plain stupid.

No advances in game mechanics in 20 years? Really? New players dont need that and veterans will play it with nostalgia anyway. Formula was perfect then and it's perfect for new players too. Don't spoil it for them. Too many classics have been spoiled by trying to make them 'better'.

Remakes are always a bit risky for the buyer. some are money grabs. others are cultural events where good games of the past are resurrected and passed on to the next generation. This game (along with another Bitmap Brothers game on steam) is not counted in the money grab games section.

What a great game, I think I actually enjoyed it more now, then I did back in the day. I highly recommend this game to anyone who was gaming in the early 90s for a good dose of nostalgic rage (when then CPU player takes all your food/power ups!). The majority of the game is flawless but there are still issues which have not been addressed. Like for instance the online multiplayer being laggy to the point of unplayability and some of the achievements are inaccessible/broken. Apprantly there are "minor sound issues" and a friend has also mentioned "laggy menus" but I myself have not experienced these problems or neglected to notice them. All in all this is a great emulation and was worth every penny, do yourself a favor and buy this classic masterpiece.

This is a return of an old classical 2 players game. This is not a new remake. As I noticed they changed only three things:
1. Added a filter that makes pixels look smoother. Can be disabled, but I really liked it (steam store screenshots have it turned on).
2. Added autosave of the last unlocked password. No need to write them down on a sheet of paper. Handy.
3. Not only local, but also a network multiplayer (2 players coop campaign).

None of these features really make this game better or worser than it was before. I hightly recommend it to those who played this game years ago and liked it. It's still the very same fun game. On the other hand, mashing Fire is still a need as this way you shoot faster than if you just hold Fire key/button.

For those of you who didn't... Well, it's a good 2 players coop game, played good if using the same computer (keyboard or controller for each player). The game is of average difficulty. It can kill you really quick if you are careless, but not unbeatable and doesn't require super reaction or precision. No combos, dirty tricks, you can play it straight out of the box. A lot of guessing elements appear later in the game and make you life easier or harder depending on your choices. This game will not take much time, it has autosave every half an hour or an hour at later stages when you reach a new world.. or if you loose all your lives before that :D. If everything goes good, you'll be able to complete it in one go in somehting like 3-4 hours. Six different characters and different special power (unlocked later) give this game some replayability, but not too much. Finishing it 1-3 times will probably be enough for most players.

If this sounds fun - you should try it. If not - pass by, this game is quite good, but not a must see.

Wow.
I got this on a great discount, from Humble bundle store.
I was still taking a risk.
But I will never regret buying that.
Back when I had my Amiga 500 as my main computer, this game was one of my favorite ones.
Also the game was a great challenge.

Amiga version had the best music - sound fx and voice.
The game is NOT Steam punk. This is bullcrap.
People must not use terms just because they are trendy and catchy.
It is cyber punk though, as it meant to be back then.
A great cyber punk game with post apocalyptic atmosphere.

It is a shoot em up platformer game that has the camera above the player sprites.
The limited view the players have, will challenge them not only NOT to be hasty,
but also to be extra careful. Two player game needs great collaboration by both players.
This is not a vanilla shoot em up platformer, no.

The game has secrets, it has many ways to do things and many paths to pass.
Different paths, different choices, have different rewards.
An extra life, a power up, everyrthing counts when it comes to Chaos Engine.
So it has great replayability.

The game has 4 Worlds. Each world has 4 levels.

The final boss was great and the whole game was also incredible.

Graphics were well made.

Let's go to music now.
That was the strongest advantage of this game in Amiga version.
The music was just eight OUTSTANDING pieces of art.
Remember Techno and Industrial, genres? Add some dark ambience and you got what the soundtrack was.

In Commodore Amiga 500, the music was outstanding and I believe it was the best version.

So what did these guys did with the remaster?

The Chaos engine was released also for
Atari ST,
MS-DOS,
Sega Mega Drive,
Super NES...
and more...

So?

So they did the right thing!!!


The Chaos engine has Amiga version sound, some minor bugs exist but don't ruin the whole experience,
there are some welcome changes on coloring and voice sound fx that are really welcome as the game is more polished now.


It is still as challenging as it was.
I remember myself looking at the screen after beating it the ending and feeling that awesome satisfaction that the good old school games were giving you.

The Chaos Engine brings overhead steampunk action to the modern PC. It's not exactly a remake, as the graphics haven't been redrawn and the presentation is pretty much exactly what it was twenty years ago. There are a few tweaks to the checkpointing system and control set-up, but, for better or worse, this is exactly the same game the critics raved about back in the early 1990s.While I found the experience too punishing, I'm sure there are longtime fans who have memorized every maze and can breeze through the entire game in a couple hours. Those gamers who grew up with The Chaos Engine will likely enjoy this more than I did. The developers haven't touched the graphics, which is something I appreciate. The music is also taken directly from the original Amiga CD release. For many European gamers, this will no doubt bring back a lot of fond memories.I wish I could share the love for this twenty year old game, but alas I couldn't get over the cheap deaths and unfair difficulty. It's filled with bits and pieces that I love and respect, but they never quite come together like they should. This enhanced version of The Chaos Engine could use a few more enhancements.With so many great ideas in The Chaos Engine, it pains me to admit that I didn't have much fun. I love the world it creates, the diverse enemies and the science fiction story, but can't get past the punishing difficulty and cheap hits.
