From Kick Off World of Soccer - wikickoff
Throw In is a tribute to the best game ever, Kick Off 2. It is developed by Gianluca Troiano, the 2003 and 2004 Kick Off 2 World Champion. Throw in attempt to reproduce the classic gameplay of Kick Off 2 and it's designed to offer fast action with responsive controls.. Just as in Kick Off 2 you can do anything on the pitch with just a single fire button.
The final version will probably be released in April 2007. Until then you can testplay betaversions that are available for download. Gianluca will happily accept any comments and help for his game. If you are willing to help, you can visit the [Kick Off World Forums] .
The development of the game is really promising. I'm quite sure Throw In 0.8 will be a game really enjoyable especially for old school fans. The new GFX made by Danne is also in progress with some interesting results. Stay tuned for more news!
