Abe is a creature called a Mudokon who is effectively a slave at a meat factory until he finds out that he and his coworkers are going to be turned into product for the factory. Abe decides to save his fellow Mudokons and must move through the factory leading them to exits. Abe's Oddysee feels like a combination of Prince of Persia and Out of This World, in that Abe can pull himself onto and lower himself down from ledges, and there is an alien feeling to his world and very little talking. Abe can sneak past sleeping guards, hide in shadows, pull levers to open trap doors, pull himself up bucket-and-rope pulleys, and throw things the he finds, such as grenades. He can talk to Mudokons and convince them to follow him or stay where they are. He can even control enemies called Sligs and use their machine guns. The factory is full of perils, such as electric barriers, falling rocks, and a variety of enemies who kill him on sight. Thankfully Abe has infinite lives. There are 99 Mudokons to save in this game, with only 15 in the shareware version.
