The Chaos Engine is a top-down run and gun video game developed by the Bitmap Brothers and published by Renegade Software in 1993. The game is set in a steampunk Victorian age in which one or two players must battle the hostile creations of the titular Chaos Engine across four landscapes and ultimately defeat the Chaos Engine and its deranged inventor.


It was first released for the Commodore Amiga, a version available for AGA Amigas, and later ported to MS-DOS, and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Atari ST, Amiga CD32, Amiga 500, RISC OS and Sega Mega Drive platforms.The U.S. versions of these two ports were retitled Soldiers of Fortune.


Players choose two mercenaries from a group of six to take on the task of defeating the mad Baron Fortesque and the Chaos Engine itself. The playable characters have various qualities that affect gameplay, such as, speed and combat ability.

In one-player mode, the computer artificial intelligence controls the second player, so that one never has to fight the chaos alone. Control of characters cannot be swapped once chosen.

It is possible to play with only one character, by starting up a two-player game and killing off the second character. The advantage of this is that a single character will get more money and level up faster since it isn't being shared with another player.

One of my childhood games! My BFF and me had numerous play throughs. Good ol´times!
