Abuse is a FREE run and gun video game. The game’s source code, along with some of the Shareware content, has been in the public domain since the late 1990s and has been ported to Linux and other platforms.

Abuse resembles a side-scrolling platform game. The game is notable for its (at the time) unusual control scheme: The keyboard is used to move Nick, while the mouse is used for aiming the weapons. The basic gameplay consists of fighting various enemies (mostly the various forms of mutants, who prefer to attack in huge swarms) and solving some simple puzzles, usually involving switches.
