Description of Abuse

To shortly resume Abuse (also known as Them, Alien Abuse, Abuse Classic), it's about action and sci-fi / futuristic, shooter, editor / construction set. It was done by Crack dot Com in 1995. Feel free to download and try it!

The only game Crack dot Com managed to release, Abuse is a fast paced science fiction side scrolling action game with a bunch of weapons to use, excellent low resolution graphics and some challenging gameplay. Though it was never extremely well known, it's definitely worth a play.

How to play Abuse

Abuse was fairly unique at the time of its release for combining keyboard based movement with mouse controlled aiming. Anybody who has played a first person shooter with the mouse+keyboard control scheme or similar games such as Soldat will feel right at home here. The DOS version of Abuse runs perfectly under DOSBox.

"Unable to open cache file for compiled code"
Anyone else getting this issue, or know of a way to fix it? I'm using DOSBOX 0.74 on Windows 10.

I had Abuse for my Mac back in the mid 90s and loved it! The PC version runs exactly as the Mac version did. Amazing!
Such a simple concept for a side-scrolling platform.

Definitely an underrated classic... Good and unique control scheme at the time which I could never really get used to. But I still want to give it another go at some point

I remember playing this when it came out, great game! you control the player with KB and the shooting direction with the mouse. Controls are interesting for a side scroller but works perfectly.
