The Chaos Engine 2 is a split-screen deathmatch between two players
one of which may be controlled by the computer: there is no co-operative mode available.
Instead, each player must try to obtain the greatest score, either by simply killing the opponent repeatedly or by collecting objects, destroying monsters, fulfilling tasks and
solving puzzles. Conversely, points are lost if killed. Inventories are dropped upon death which means that if a quest requires a key to unlock a door or a safe, it becomes necessary to kill the opponent should they acquire it before the player.If a human opponent has
the highest score at the end of a round, they move on to the next; if the computer defeats
the player, the round is replayed until the user wins.A game can be played across 4, 8, 12 or 16 rounds, with each consisting of a different environment: Medieval
Aztec and Chaos.

Cannon Fodder is a military-themed action game with strategy and shoot 'em
up elements. The player controls a small squad of up to four soldiers. These soldiers are

destroy buildings which spawn enemy soldiers. For these targets, which are invulnerable to machine gun fire, the player must use secondary, explosive weaponry: grenades and rockets. Ammunition for these weapons is limited and the player must find supply crates
to replenish his troops. Wasting these weapons can potentially result in the player not having enough to fulfil the mission objectives. The player can opt to shoot
crates – destroying enemy troops and buildings in the ensuing explosion – at less risk
to his soldiers than retrieving them, but again at a greater risk of depleting ammunition.
