Eat The Whistle is an opensource soccer game originally developed by Hurricane
Studios as commercial product for the Amiga platform. It has a lot of features
never seen in other soccer games.

# Here are some of the features:

    * System friendly. Run in a window or fullscreen, can be played also on old
machines (runs pefectly on a P200).
    * World cup, leagues, cups with real teams (with slightly modified names).
    * Time synchronized, faster CPU get faster framerate but not faster
    * Can be played through keyboard or joypad/joysticks (USB or Gameport).
    * Network playing through TCP/IP (not yet finished).
    * Very intuitive control method with acceleration/deceleration.
    * More than 550 frames of animations for the players, 300 for the
goalkeeper, 100 for the refree and a lot of other graphics.
    * 30 different fields, including muddy, frozen and wet (actually only one
included in the demo version to contain the archive size).
    * Fouls, corners, throw-in with an intuitive control system.
    * Role playing. (You can play a match as the whole team or only as a
    * About every thing in the game is configurable via intuitive menus.
    * Game Tactics and tactic editor.
    * Heading and other special shots with intuitive controls.
    * Team players (with individual stats) and team editor (the editor is
actually available only for AmigaOS).
    * Import SWOS teams.
    * Arcade-like actions for "arcade mode" (powerups, bonuses... something like
speedball II).
    * Replays (with load/save option).
    * Spoken comment (actually broken). 

# Eat The Whistle it's probably one the most configurable soccer game written,
it has tons of options, here are some examples (click here for a picture that
shows one of the configuration menus):

    * you can play it with Joystick, two-button joystick, joypad or keyboard
(two different, and configurable keyboard control methods), the joypad control
is very similar to the Playstation's ISSPro one.
    * There are 8 different pitch types and 7 different pitch conditions, the
pitch condition modify the aspect of the field! You can play on a wet field or
on a snow covered one, in this case the players will wear gloves !
    * You can choose the daytime of the match, if the match is played in the
evening the players have 4 shadows.
    * You can choose screenmode (example hires picture), radar size, if you want
to see always the match result or the active player name...
    * You can play friendly matches, cups, leagues, world cups (picture) ,
training, penalties, free kicks.
    * There is a great Arcade Mode with two different pitches that seem an arena
and with 11 custom "arcade teams" (picture)(one is the secret one) and you can
do a challenge similar to a beat'em'up with the gameplay that is mix between
speedball and a soccer game! (picture)
    * There are a LOT of cheat modes!
