About

A Classic of good old Amiga Time perfectly ported to Current Systems, I can only recommend it to any Gamcker of the older Generation and Lovers of Retro-games.

Once upon a time in a Galaxy far, far away ... Ähh, I meant. A long Time ago, when there was an Amiga 500. That's when I played this Game all the way to the Brain Dead and beyond. This Game should not be bought by anyone who is not into retro games. Everyone who liked Chaos Engine used to, will still love it today.

In a word-Haltura. It Is a feeling that did not soar at all, when ported the game on the PC. That'S how it was on the conslits (graphics, music, control) and dumb "CTRL + C-CTRL + V". About translation I generally keep silent (subtitles)... Yes guys Roam Sevawskie better translate-completely change the text... The game is a norm, but so porting games can not.

Terrific retro fun Looking for an Old-school Iso shooter: Chaos Engine Forget the Story and plunge you into an Adventure with a Buddy or a Bot and punch your Way through crazy Worlds. Opponent? Mutants, Robots, Hoppel bunnies, Hands, something that looks like a Cyclops ... This Game will captivate you with its Wit and its crisp difficulty.

Actually Plays the same way it did then. Nothing more and nothing less. If you liked the Game in the past and if you want to play it just like that again, I can recommend the New Edition. But We must not expect any Innovations. One should decide for yourself whether the Price (currently €8) is reasonable for a pure Nostalgia. From my Point of view, that's a Feeling thing and I didn't regret it.

This Game is a Classic from the old Amiga days, but the Concept is not really contemporary these days. The Graphics, of course, reawaken Nostalgia, but many other Aspects cause frustration. The game design in particular is unfair rather than demanding. Therefore, I can't really recommend it and the Price is also quite peppered.

Super graphics and retro gameplay, unfortunately, with all the attendant problems of re-releases of games of twenty years ago: In the first place, the exorbitant complexity multiplied by freshly introduced bugs-with animation characters, timings, management, etc. Cm. Forums. The Design of levels, where it is not known why, and as a consequence, you can never understand how to get into a specific area closed from you, too, does not cause a game of excitement. Era Shooters Series "And Let's beat a month's head against the wall, and it will go cracks" long gone.
