Crash Override is a top-down arena shooter roguelite where you surf the cybernet as a gun for hire. Power up to save the mainframe before the crash wave erases everything. Loot, upgrade, and survive.

The mainframe has been infected by a virus, and you must surf the neon corridors of the cybernet, or risk total system infection. Collect your arsenal, rezz, power up, battle hordes of glitches, and overpower the virus.

Play Crash Override as one of 6 avatars against a horde of enemy glitches. Experience the cybernet with its procedurally generated levels, neon visual style, and driving retro synthwave soundtrack.
