The Chaos Engine is a top-down run and gun video game developed by The Bitmap Brothers and published by Renegade Software in 1993.

Kane is a multi-section action game published by Mastertronic, originally for the Commodore 64 in 1986. The game was then ported to a wide variety of other home computers. The game is set in the Wild West, and its name is a reference to the main character of the film High Noon. The game consists of four distinct scenes, although some versions only contain two. A sequel to the game was released in 1988.
The player takes the role of Sheriff of the town of Kane. The game is split into four levels, two of which are shooting games using an on-screen target and two of which are side-scrolling action sequences on horseback. Only the shooting levels are present in all versions of the game. These may be played separately in the practice mode (with only one try given), but in order to complete and win the game, they must be played successively. The progress in the first scene defines the tries given in the next scenes.

Panther was a C64 game released by Mastertronic in 1988. In this game, the player piloted a strange-looking aircraft, fighting off hordes of invading flying saucers and rescuing people by landing the craft and waiting for them to board. The game used an isometric view, scrolling diagonally. The rescue portion of the game coupled with the isometric viewpoint made the game play very much like a combination of Choplifter and Zaxxon.
The game could be played by one or two players, alternating turns.
The C64 disk packaged Panther with L.A. SWAT, another Mastertronic game. The A-side of the disk contained the two programs from C64/128, while the B-side contained Atari 800XL/130XE versions.
