A little-known gem from the days when platformers were still big on the PC, '''''Abuse''''' is a dark (both literally and figuratively) platform shooter created by Crack Dot Com, co-founded by former Creator/IdSoftware programmers Dave Taylor and Jonathan Clark, and published by Origin Systems, by then a division of Creator/ElectronicArts, in 1996.
