Override is an intense vertical shooter by Data East. Aliens are about to invade, once again, and the only hope to humanity are powerfully armed forces called Override. The player takes control of a squary spaceship and fly his way through six long stages. Litterally tons of power-ups fill up the screen at any time in this game. They usually add secondary weapons to the ship, such as Homing Lasers (Red), Straight lasers (Blue), Rotating Wave Lasers (Green), Side Lasers (Purple) and Directional Lasers (Orange), and each secondary weapon can be upgraded up to three times. Two other pods exist and either upgrade the main vulcan-gun (P) or give the ship one precious shield cell (E). Finally, a powerful wave of fire can be automatically charged up when the ship doesn't shoot. The second action button just ajusts the speed.
