tinyE: Abuse is one of the great platformers of all time, but it's old and like most DOS games it can be a little clunky. I'd wager if it ever shows up on GOG it will be an instant buy for a lot of folks here myself included.

Fenixp: Or, you know, you could just download the free remake that's lying somewhere around the net.
Ummmm yeah...I knew that. I just wanted to see if you folks knew about it. :P

Actually, the original is also freeware.

Drelmanes: I never played, but this seems fun.

Kunovski: Abuse is the best shooting platformer of all times... it will make your heart go boom!
(and not because some stupid programmer made this jump almost unjumpable :)

man, thanks for reminding me, I'm going to play that tonight!!!
Wow, is that good? I'll probably check this game, then!

Drelmanes: Wow, is that good?
Yep, it is that good. And hard.
No one remember on GOG the sequel of Shadowlands, Shadoworld? Nice sci-fi action rpg... :)
The only Abuse downloads I can find are the old DosBox ones that tell me "can't run in full screen mode". If you know of one tweekd for windows please let me know. Thanks! :)

Check PM :)
also, I HIGHTLY RECOMMEND playing the game without music, just with the sound effects on...

EDIT: I mean Abuse of course :)

Did they change the death scream in Abuse? I remember it being more horrific back whe it first came out.
Since we are into DOS talk I might as well mention Solar Winds 1&2. They are not like Diablo but they are ACTUAL Sci-fi RPGs. They are also really old but I still love em to death.
I've played Solar Winds, but never really thought of them as RPGs. They're closer to action/adventure games in my opinion.

Has anyone mentioned Maximus XV Abraham Strong: Space Mercenary, probably better know by it's infinitely less amusing and uninspired title Space Hack?

Ralackk: Restricted Area...

Warning though it uses starforce drm, which in itself is reason enough not to play it. Which also makes this a bit of a crap recommendation but like I said I really can't think of any others.

Ahh brilliant. I've been wanting to go back and try this game for a long time now. Think its time I finally bought something from gamers gate. Thank you.

You're welcome :) Also, be sure to give Harbinger a go too if you haven't already. It's on sale on GG right now, less than 3$.
