Demented drinks machines might just be accompanying Empire-State-climbing gorillas and reptilian behemoths in the pantheon of city-destroyers, as Maximum Override lets you play as a possessive alien spirit to cause mischief in a cheery Metropolis.
Developed by indie studio Alientrap, Maximum Override allows players to possess and control almost anything in attempt to cause as much destruction as possible within a two minute time frame. Hell can be rained down upon the good townsfolk in a variety of creative ways, such as through hijacking automated bridges to send cars into rivers, sending huge golden globes rolling into buildings; even taking refuge inside an unassuming soda machine to launch cans at unsuspecting bystanders.
Along with this default ‘G mode’, players will also have access to an Arcade Mode, and Zen Mode – in which players can wreck the town as much as they like, without being bound by a time limit.
Maximum Override is out now for Early Access on Steam for $7 (or £4.99).
