Asylum is a 2D platform/shooting game designed and written by Andy Southgate in 1994, originally as a commercial project for the Acorn Archimedes. In 2002 Southgate released the source and media into the public domain, and a C port using SDL is now available. Source code is available for both, so both are free software.
