TouchArcade: "Abuse is a side scrolling platformer in which you fight off hoards of monsters while trying to escape a prison complex. You can run, jump and climb while directing gunfire in any direction. While we tried the game right after its release to the App Store, we felt the iPhone game really suffered from the initial control system offered. In a game like Abuse, independent control of firing and movement is critical to gameplay. This, for example, allows you to run in one direction while firing at your chasing enemies."
