Eat The Whistle

Eat The Whistle

Eat The Whistle is an arcade football (soccer) game similar to famous Amiga titles such as Kick Off or Sensible Soccer.

It features several game modes where you can play either as the whole team or as a single player, and you can also manage teams that take part in cups and leagues. There is even an arcade mode with powerups and bonuses, like in the game SpeedBall 2.

The game was originally developed by Hurricane Studios as commercial software for the Amiga platform.
