I'm a fan of Run 'N Gun games since I was young, and they're perhaps my second favorite genre just behind the Beat 'Em Up and tied with FPS. I never heard of Abuse before, and I just downloaded it. WOW!

Here's a clip to give you an idea:


Though, I wasn't able to get the open source version working, so I downloaded the original and got it running in DOSbox.

Try to imagine a Sci Fi/Survival Horror/Run 'N Gun game and you have an excellent description of Abuse. great stuff. Nerve Wracking as all hell. Great stuff!

That looks prett ygood actually! I'm going to keep this game in mind. Maybe you could post a download? Smile
I just installed it on my Fedora desktop. Works like a charm.

Reminds me of Turrican quite a bit at the mo, which is never a bad thing. Cheers for the heads up Jak! Smile

Edit: Using the mouse to aim is getting on my tits, lol. I have my arms crossed thanks to the layout of laptops. I'll get used to it I guess. Or maybe I should just plug a proper mouse in... That's using your noodle Shiny!

I remember this game. It was in my big shareware mag of stuff you could order but I never got around to it. Gonna go hunt it down now.
I remember Abuse. I loved the way you could move in a different direction to that in which were aiming. It reminded me of the Alien films.
There was also another game called Big Guns. which had a very similar control system. It was just like a 2D version of Quake 3 Arena. You ran around a scrolling 2D area and you had a number of opponents - who were either bots or humans. You also had differnt weapons you could pick up - just like Quake.

Edit : Shiny - Ha ha - I just played on Turrican (Amiga) last night - I'm sorting through my Amiga stuff from the attic. Good game but I forgot how small the screen display area is. Also its nowhere near as good without the sound! - I was playing on a mono TV with an RGB lead and for some reason I lose 2 sound channels doing this (out of the Amiga's 4).

Mini-Reviews of films I have just watched :
Mini-Reviews of ZX Spectrum games :
Game's pretty cool. A bit harder then I was expecting actually.
This game looks awesome, but I can't find it online:(.

shot in the eye
shot in the brain
shot in the ass...
Thanks for the link, downloading now!
Abuse was awesome, but I remember it being extremely hard when I was younger. Maybe I just sucked, I don't know.
