I seriously doubt chaos engine used the ST blitter. The bitmaps weren't in the habit of even using the Amiga hardware properly let alone the STe.

Here's a list of game that ran in one vbl. Obsession, Star dust, Zool and Chronicles of Omega. All of them use the ST blitter. I've used the ST and the Amiga blitter and I'm telling you from experience that both flat out kill the 68k for speed. Even with pre shifted graphics taking potentially 16 times the memory the ST blitter is faster. Read and understand the manual and you will see why.
