More power to the beast - Atari Games' 'CoJag'

Before Atari Corporation's reverse merger with JTS, Atari Games licensed the Jaguar's design and added some modifications like a faster processor and a hard disk drive. Atari Games published three games based on this 'new' hardware:

Game Year Type Hardware modifications
Area 51 1995 light-gun-shooter The 68000 was replaced by an SGI R3K at 25 MHz
4 MB RAM
1 GB HDD
Maximum Force 1997 light-gun-shooter The 68000 was replaced by an SGI R3K at 25 MHz
6 MB RAM
2 GB HDD
Area 51: Site 4 1998 light-gun-shooter The 68000 was replaced by an SGI R3K at 25 MHz
6 MB RAM
2 GB HDD

There also existed some game combinations like the 'Area 51' / 'Maximum Force' Duo and some kits.
