Override is a Data East vertical-scrolling shooter game released for the PC Engine in 1991. Later that year, Sting Entertainment, the creator of the original Data East game, developed and self-published a version for the X68000 released as Last Battalion.

It is the first recorded game developed by Sting Entertainment and the X68000 version is now available as a free "one stage only" demo download on Sting's website. On September 4, 2007, G-Mode published the Override version of the game for the Wii Virtual Console which (like its 1991 release) was reserved exclusively for the Japanese market.

Gameplay[edit]

The player can increase the power of your primary weapon by collecting “P” items. Your ship also has a charge feature, where if you do not touch the fire button for a few seconds, your ship will charge up a powerful shot that can destroy many of the enemies on-screen. You can also acquire secondary weapons by collecting a gem. The gem changes colors, and depending on which color it is when you collect it, you will get a different weapon. You can power up your secondary weapon by collecting another gem of the same color.

Reception[edit]

On release, the game was scored a 30 out of 40 by a panel of four reviewers at Famicom Tsūshin.[1]
