i can't read greek but i guess the author is alkis...am i wrong?
It should be cool to have a translation from the greek guys :wink:


I don't think Alkis is the author - anyway, here is what it basically says:

Throw-In is an ambitious remake of Kick Off 2 and a tribute to the best game of all time - according to its creator, Gianluca Troiano, who is by the way the Kick Off 2 World Champ for 2003 (***). This, along with the fact that the beta version is hosted on ko-gathering.com, make us optimistic about the outcome of this effort.

(download links)


(***) Yes, international tournaments are still organized from veteran KOers and new players alike. The 2001 winner was Alkis Polyrakis of Other Worlds (http://www.alkis.org) - a very good fanmade adventure - fame.


Hmm... now that I think about it... Alkis may very well be the author :)

Clone de um dos mais famosos e divertidos jogos de futebol: Kick Off 2 (lembra até Sensible Soccer). O jogo apresenta interface gráfica 3D (mesmo parecendo 2D), com efeitos de chuva, neblina e neve. Extremamente divertido.

Extremely fun.

I'll have to pay more attention during my Spanish courses :oops:

The reviewer gave a score 9/10, while the average user is 7.5

It is times again classical author time and this time reached into the crate with the old plays and out came in such a way Kick off 2, again finished in this play, Throw into.

If that should be to fast someone, the attitude menu offers however the possibility of moving the play speed under 100%.

Throw is not graphically seen in in 3D held and also the sound succeeded very well leaves to be desired. Since also the control succeeded well and it takes ' ne while nevertheless, until one "in it" is, is provided also for the long-term motivation - 9.

yes, indeed a great review 9/10 :shock:
This score is important since we consider the average review mark is 7.38/10 :)
The bad news are the users, now the users score is 6.8/1
If you consider that this game:

had 6.5 from users then i'm a bit disappointed by 6.8/10. However the reviewer rated this game 4/10.

I really wouldn't worry about the scores from anyone. The most important reviews come from your peers and us here in the KOA. Let's face it, in this day and age a game where you have to rely purely on your own skill, and you have to practise to achieve something isn't going to go down a storm...

"Throw in" is a tribute to the classical author "Kick off 2". The fast and simple Gameplay packed in a successful 3D diagram can be quite seen and is worth an in any case Download. The play is however in the beta phase and is still developed further.

That is to still experience may. There are Remakes of plays, which I had already long forgotten. Kick off 2 was the soccer game at the beginning of the 90's. Afterwards it however quietly around this category and in such a way surprises it view that I forgot it. But Thor in (A of tributes tons of Kick off 2) my memory ability restores. Soccer games on the PC is not completely simple and one needs a quantity of exercise, before one goes on the world championship. This Remake is unfortunately still in the beta stage, however on my PC einwanfrei functioned.
