You have been locked in a prison where illegal genetic experiments have been going on. The scientist figure out how to genetically make anyone go into a rage. They call it Abuse. It has gotten loose from them and spread through out the entire prison. You have to fight your way through all the mutated and enraged enemies and make sure this doesn't leave the prison.

In 1997 the source and graphics were publicly released, leading to several ports to windows and other modern operating systems. The levels, sounds and music were released later. Armed with the source code and the game’s editor Abuse is fully modable.

I love this game so damn much.
There isn't much games like this around anymore. I really miss 2D shooters like this...

I started a mod. Just some new levels and foretiles. I'll post it when (if) I finish. Of course, i'm already working on 2 HL2 maps (Dystopia, HL2DM) and a warcraft III map.

I wonder what version I have, it restores you to 100 health if you save, then load your game, but powerups let you go beyond that, and when you save it drops to 100

This is a great game, period. It was awesome when it came out in 1997, it is still awesome today.

Think of an sci-fi fps game with aliens, now put it into 2 dimensions - boom, you got Abuse. This is not a platformer in a traditional sense as it may seem from the screenshots, this is mainly a shooter.

The skill level is rather high compared with todays games, nevertheless it's loads of fun for a seasoned gamer.
