I need to remove some old tiles from a concrete floor, is there a simpler and faster method than hammer and chisel. I have done this before but just wondering if there is a better way. Thought about using a jack hammer but that seams a bit drastic.

As far as I know, it is a hammer and chisel for you. SORRY.
And yes a Jack Hammer is a bit drastic! Imagine the damage you could do to the sub flooring. I don’t think there is a way to lift the concrete off the floor than the obvious.
Hard work. But good exercise!

Dabbler, many years ago I gave a mate a hand to remove tiles in a pool. We got a length of steel pipe around 5 foot long (that's how long ago it was) & welded a 6inch bolster to the end. Worked a charm once you got a start under the tiles.
Possibly take less effort with a small Kanga though.
Good luck & watch the eyes!
