Abuse is a dark 2D side-scrolling platform game developed by Crack dot Com in 1995. It features beautiful lighting, realistic animation and nasty alien-like creatures to destroy.

This is the new home to Abuse and Abuse-SDL. I took over maintenance of that game to prevent it from vanishing from the Internet.

Since Abuse's public domain release in 1997, the following improvements were made:

  • video output uses the SDL library, with optional OpenGL rendering
  • 64-bit platforms support
  • lots of crashes, memory leaks and general bugs fixed


Development takes place in a Subversion repository. You can browse it online or check it out using svn:

You can report new bugs or browse current bugs. See also the development notes?.
