    19191. INTRODUCTION
    2020
    21 Welcome to Abuse-SDL, the port of the classic game Abuse to the
    22 Simple DirectMedia Layer.  Abuse was originally developed by
    23 Crack dot Com and released in 1995 for MS-DOS.  A Linux version was
    24 also made available at a later date.  It had a few limitations
    25 the most restrictive of which was that it only ran on an 8-bit
    26 display, and only in a window.
    27 Abuse-SDL will run at any colour depth and supports fullscreen
    28 mode, as well as many other new features.  It should also be more
    29 portable and hopefully run on a variety of *nix variants, and possibly
    30 other systems supported by the SDL library.
