Here I go, this is one of my all time favourites, the game that is the abandonware's answer to the current day 'alien vs. predator'.

This action packed game is something from the future, stuck in the past; what I mean from this is that it was made back in 1995, but feels like something that shouldn't have been made until a few years later. The graphics are crisp clear, with great sound effects, and perfect game play.

If I had to go to space tomorrow and could only take 10 games with me, this would defiantly be one of them! Its the kind of game in which if you don't have a graphics card or perfectly modern sound card, you can still sit back and play without trouble.

Abuse is famously quoted as "a side scroller with a twist", and that´s exactly what it is. You play an alien fighting throughout the various levels with a nice selection of guns at your dispense. Your aim is to, like many other games reach the end of each stage - alive, whilst battling various aliens and everything else non-human.

Although Abuse is listed as an action game, which it is, it is also a platform game, and a great one at that. The key features which make this game awesome and the reason I say its ahead of its time is because it has the Max Payne/Unreal Tournament feature of playing with the mouse. Yep, you can use the keyboard and mouse simultaneously, both to move and to aim and fire.

This game is a MUST if you are into action-packed game play!

Oops. The first ever 3dmm movie to use audio from it was Action Joe 2.

Hey, the player (You) looks like a mix of a Predator. Wierd.

3Dmmers like Dean Francis use the sounds from this

Fun fact: The Crack team were Nine Inch Nails fans, so the main character Nick Vrenna might refer to the band drummer Christoper Vrenna.

The death scream heard in American Gladiators used the same one, but pitched down.
