Abuse
Jak
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!

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).

Abuse was awesome, but I remember it being extremely hard when I was younger. Maybe I just sucked, I don't know.
