SWTOR Companions have the ability to distinctive proficiency and individualities, and his or hers strengths carry over
within the Personnel Knowledge system. According to Shadrack's this is the world's
largest drive through synchronizes to music, LED Christmas light display in
the country. The animation of the characters is just as impressive, starting with Pinocchio himself (voiced
by real boy actor Dickie Jones).

I love Foosball and Australian Rules Footy (both live) - that's about it in the genre for me. I won't give it a thumbs down, because there are those who will still enjoy the game - the minority anyway.

However, I just HAVE to ask the obvious question ....

Why offer a game (free or not) that scored so poorly last time ???

I suppose the answer is that GAOTD still makes their money :/

On my PC, the sprites responded smoothly to gamepad controls but the ESC key did not always bring up the menu. I also disabled the "Bloom" effect (accessible through the Options menu) because my VGA card had issues with it.
Just for fun, I tried editing one of the in-game fake ads — and it sorta worked without causing any crashes.
IMO, if you've played Table Football ("Foosball" or even a board game version), today's game would probably a strike a chord with you.

Currently at level 411 Cash earned $1,700,158

Here I go showing my American attitude...but, come on, it's only football to the rest of the world (to us, it's just stupid old soccer!!!!). Real football doesn't have round balls. 'Nuff said. Yeh, I know...leaving a great chance to diss the USA with this post...

@lahula: The Atlantis screensaver they offer isn't the one for the Atlantis game. And the one offered is only a demo. The one from the game doesn't seem to be offered anymore.

I'm not a soccer/football fan so I'm not really interested in this game. And they don't have Canada; these are all European teams. There also doesn't seem to be an option to turn the music and sound off.

@ 15 e 16. I'm not really sure about that. They are still public figures (for the teams, instead, may be true). So why not use fancy names? Bachelors against married would do fine for those who play.It's seems to me better than Anter, Bori and so on.If so, also the newspapers should pay for photographs made to players outside the football field.And this is not a 3D game that should make full use of image and name. Have a good w.e. everybody.

The Point is, if they use the real names of the players they have to pay lots of money for that...

Reply   |   Comment by Wiseblood  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

#14 - that's because teams and players are brand names. If any developer want to use real names they should give a pot of gold to the gready leprechauns (Leagues and Platers associations). So be happy with Dadier Dragba :)

Terrifying! Teams like Inter, Juventus, crippled in the name. Yet they are known all over the world! Three years for this program ... Maybe it was better to read the newspapers and learn more about sports teams. Who is Olessandro dal Piaro? Of course, Alessandro del Piero. No Comment.

I read in one of the above comments about someone who had a game offered yesterday, and I was curious? Are there games offered "every" day? Because I only receive a newsletter on Saturdays, Sundays. So I'm only offered two games per week? Is there a different place to go check for daily game giveaways?

In The Rise of Atlantis Premium when you bet the game and try to get the free screen saver it sends you to http://files.astrogemini.com/rise_of_atlantis_reward.exe but it saids 404 not found. Why does it not work?

..........................Moderator Comment........................

I don't know Richard. If I was buying this game and had that problem I'd not be very pleased especially as I'm one of those who like screen savers just for their beauty (though not all are beautiful). I don't know whether we are entitled to any feedback from the developer, but it may be worth a try. check out the forums. I'm sure there will be a section dealing with this issue.

I'm having the same problem as I had with the Morbid Mansion giveaway, where the installer never even appears, with the we*.tmp executable just momentarily running and immediately exiting.

Surprisingly norton security suite had no problems with this one, it installed fine on win7 home .After playing a little I have to say it seems well thought out,detailed,with extensive player editing easy to use.I might have missed it but saw no way to trade players-maybe a future option??-which IMHO would be a nice touch.Not really my favorite type of game but looks interesting, well worth playing. THANKS GGOTD & NEOGEN2---nice game

@WR-uk: quote "Today’s game giveaway Football Live downloads to a 72.3MB (previous version was 67MB ) zip ..."
don't be mislead, it is the same poor game again, the only difference is the new wrapper that blows up file size! E.g. yesterdays giveaway was 6,8MB, whereas the actual setup is only 400KB! Eating up a lot of bandwith ...
And, could anyone provide a rational and adequate reason why I should "steal the wrapped executable and integrated registration"? To instal the software later or on a different PC? Many programs are updated and improved, so why should I bother with an old unsecure unstable app then; or many old programs won't work with a new OS. So where and what's the reason to do this.
Certainly there isn't one for this game as the graphics are a bit old fashioned, as there are just a few options the gamer can set, and the gameplay itself is not really challenging - choose a game and the computer calculates the scores ...

............................Moderator comment..........................

For you there is obviously no reason, but the number of videos posted on You Tube tells a different story. Check the number of hits they receive to get an idea as to how rife this problem was.

Good game, works well. Bit hard to control but makes you want to practice even more. Works and I'm on Win 7 64-bit.

Reminiscent of Sensible Soccer on the Amiga. Simple gameplay (which i like) with a lot of nice touches and plenty of options. Would have been better had there been a joystick option (much more intuitive).

It is great to see something different being offered other than the usual match 3 or brick breakers or sickly kids games. Sadly this is not my favourite type of game but it is great to see this being made available for others. Thumbs up just for that. Thanks GGOTD

That's clever !! ;) A football/soccer game, when the Olympics starts !! :) Well done.

Anyway, still not my taste, so I won't download it. But I'm sure MANY GGAOTDers will be glad to see this one and try it.

If you have any problems running or installing today's giveaway please refer to the FAQ section in the Game discussion forums:


Please direct any queries or complaints to the blog regarding the new wrapper and the inclusion of the security measure Themidia. I won't moderate any more comments regarding this issue.

The giveaway team have included this security measure to ensure the wrapped executable and integrated registration code is safe from those who would steal it using various methods to extract the unwrapped executable; (you just have to check You Tube to see how easy it 'USED' to be before the introduction of the new security measures)

It is hoped that more developers will now feel safe that their products will only be available for the one day as opposed to every day (at least for those who were able to extract the unwrapped and registered executable).

To those that are not able to install the game; you should be able to install it by rebooting and opening up in Safe Mode with networking. I realize that if one of the giveaway's were infected by malware the Themida would be able to mask the fact, however, the giveaway team have always tested all of their games and programs thoroughly using several different anti-malware programs to ensure they are clean. So far there has been over 3000 programs given away via the giveaway project and not one has been infected with malware. That should assure those who think its unsafe to download install a giveaway when in Safe mode. Immediately on installing the game you should then reboot your computer and return to normal running.

As always its the community members choice as to whether they follow this advise. I know the risks, but i still post this suggestion so that those who are having problems installing the game and who who trust the giveaway team can still install the game.

If you wish to discuss the cons of this method please post it in te forums. Thank you.


Today's game giveaway Football Live downloads to a 72.3MB (previous version was 67MB ) zip file that unpacks to a dual activation and set up file and a read me that contains installation instructions and the Terms & Conditions. To newcomers to the Game Giveaway dual activation and set up means that once the game has been installed it will automatically register itself, so there's no need to look for a registration key. :lol: The game installs to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Neogen2 Creations\Football Live

I think the install path may depend upon where you last installed a Game Giveaway. Please do check the install path before you continue with the set up wizard because I've found some games even install into the last games folder, which could cause problems. (I think this has something to do with the Temp cache). If this appears to happen please would you report it here, thank you. The installed game is 91.2MB (previous version was 90MB in size).


Today's game does place a shortcut on the desktop though not in the Start menu programs list. If you wish to place a shortcut in the Start Menu/Programs list, go to the installed games folder and right click on the games executable and select 'Create shortcut', then cut and paste into a folder that you've prenamed Football Live (or maybe Soccer Live for our American cousins), or if you wish Fly Games with a sub folder Football/Soccer Live, then cut the whole folder to the following path:

C:\Users\named account or administrator\app data\roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

To find the above path you will need to make your hidden folders visible, which can be done by selecting Folder options from the Control Panel (found in the Start Menu). you may have to change the view from 'Category' to small Icons via the view by deop down menu to the top right of the control panel window. when the folder Options window opens select the 'View' tab, then scroll down to where it says 'Hidden files and folders' and select Show hidden files, folders, and drives. Make sure once you've completed the task to change this back otherwise there is a danger that you may delete or move folders from the system. If you feel this is risky create a restore point before you start the task, but to be honest, it's very easy and unlikely to lead to any harm to your operating system.


The path will be different if you are using XP or earlier. I've posted a tutorial in the Games discussion forums HERE


This was given away last year where it received a poor 32% posiive vote out of 274 votes, with 23 comments which you can read via the following link:


Football Live is a football/soccer game inspired by classic football games, trying
to keep their ideals intact: Easy to pick up and play, hard to master.

Reference accessed November 2011 HERE

Football Live is a game inspired by old-school football games like Sensible Soccer and Kick Off, trying to keep their ideals intact: Easy to pick up and play, hard to master.

Reference pdf manual

The Game:

Football live has quite a lot of options to explain. I will give a brief explanation here, but i would suggest you read the manual that you can find installed in the games main folder. It's a pdf document so make sure you have Adobe Reader otherwise you won't be able to access it.

when the game boots up you are faced with an array of choices from the main menu ranging from friendly matches, a career mode, tournaments and training as well as an editor a tropy room and options.

The options allows you to configure the game in several ways for example you can change the difficulty from Very Easy through to world Class via five choices. You can select how you are going to observe the game via camera amgles. these are Vertical (which is the default setting), Vertical Near, Vertical normal, and Vertical far. There's also an horizontal viewpoint and a top down. You can also choose the ball style such as classic, dots white or the default ball. here's a ball control selection which includes normal and free control. you can adjust the Match length and the game speed via sliders as well as toggle off bloom effects and windowed/full screen.

The editor allows you to change virtually everything to do with teams and players from their names, the names of the towns and countries as well the skill of each player. You rank each player according to skill via a slider. All the controls are intuitative.


Each of the four playing modes offers something slightly different though the basic mechanics of each mode are similar. For example cllicking on either the friendly or the training modes allows you to choose to play in one of four european leagues (English, spanish, German and Italian) or if you choose to play a tournamant you can choose from 16 national teams from across the globe, for example, several European countries as well as African and South american and evn Japan (though no American team). Choosing a league will enable you to play in the premier disions in each of the leagues mentioned above, though some changes to teams may have occurred since this game was built last year.. I'm not into football so wouldn't know the difference..

Each of the leagues has sixteen teams to choose from. You will notice that all of the teams names have been changed slightly so as not to interfere with licencing. I presume games like the Football Manager series, Fifa Manager or Championship Manager hold all of the licences to use official team and player names, but that's just a presumption.

Once you've chosen your team, a brief look at the key bindings for gameplay (which can be found in the pdf manual as well), is followed by the squad management table and pitch layout. you can move your players around to correspond to the player positions which are marked out on the small plan view of the pitch. There are 11 positions to fill. you can select what ratio of players will play as defenders, midfield or attackers via the small window just below the plan of the pitch (field). There are seven combinations to choose from for example 4x5x1 means 4 defenders, 5 midfielders and 1 attacker, or a 4x3x3 combination which equates to 4 defenders, 3 midfielders and 3 attackers. you just click on the selections till you find the one that you want to use in game. The choice is dependent on the skill of each player you field. for example if you place three attackers who are ranked very low against an opposing team that had strong attakers you are likely to lose your match. You can also choose the way your players play by biasing the game towards attacking, defending or playing normally 9that is with a combination of attacking and defending skills).

All of the various codes used in the squad management table, for example GK means Goal Keeping abilities; the higher the score for this the better the goal keeping abilities the player has. Tac means tackling, the higher the tackling skill, the more likely the player is going to get to the ball. you can see descriptions of all of the various abbreviations in the manual. I would strongly recommend you read the manual before playing this game. The following information has been copied from the manual. There are some useful tips that may improve your gameplay experience if you take heed:

General Tips:

If you’re losing, make your team play more attacking football and change to a more attacking formation as soon as you can. By the end of each game, the opponent will try to defend the result and it will be much harder to score then.

If you have fast wingers and forwards with good heading ability, it’s recommended that you use them to run down the opponent’s flanks and cross the ball to the center. It’s likely that there will be a forward waiting to head the ball in.

Goalkeepers are much easier to beat if you shoot the ball when you are close to them than from long range. It’s possible to score goals from large distances though, just pay attention to the goalkeeper’s positioning and make sure your player is has a good shooting ability and strength.

Career Mode:

In the career mode, if you can’t win at least try to play well. Playing badly and not getting results will get you fired in no time. To appeal the fans, try to maintain as much possession as you can and attack and create as many goal opportunities as you can. Even if you don’t score, near-goals will get your fans pumped up. Of course, sometimes risking too much when you’re winning might not be a good idea but playing defensively against a weaker opponent and the fans will not like it so you have to maintain a good balance- always remember that results are more important than the exhibition.

If you’re playing against a very strong team and are expected to lose, try maintaining the possession and avoid taking risks unless you’re losing. A draw will be enough for your fans.


You can bend the ball by using the direction arrows the moment after you shoot. Scoring goals using the aftertouch can be hard and require some training, but they are very satisfying and it’s a great way to score goals once you have the hang of it.

How well you can bend the ball is limited by the player’s Flair attribute.

Game modes:

Friendly Match – A simple match where you can play a opponent of your choice.

Career – Play an entire season with a team of your choice and fight for your objectives while avoiding being fired due to bad results and not playing well. If you are just starting out it’s recommended to choose a smaller team otherwise you’ll be expected to win almost all your games.

Tournaments – Play one of the 5 available tournaments in the game with a team of your choice. You can fight for the English Cup, Spanish Cup, Italian Cup, German Cup and World Cup.

Training – Train your abilities by playing with a team of your choice, but without any opponents except for a goalkeeper. It’s recommended to spend some time training, especially if you are a beginner.

Editor– Edit all the players and teams available in the game, namely the player names, looks and attributes, and the team names and ratings.
Trophy Room– Here you’ll be able to see which trophies you won, with which teams and difficulty mode. Show off by taking screenshots !


Fully 3D engine with different cameras for you to chose
Fast paced gameplay, with adjustable game speed
Realistic ball physics
Score spectacular goals by mastering the aftertouch system
Unique career mode where your performance do matter, almost as much as results
Many tournaments, including the world cup

You can use a keyboard or game pad to play this game. The following are the key bindings you need to know to be able to play the sensible soccer like game.

A – Long Pass/ Tackling
S – Short Pass/Switch Closest player/ Take the ball of the opponent
D – Shoot
W – Pass into space
Shift – Run
Arrow keys – Move player
Enter – Skip menu
Escape – Open ingame menu


You can see a slideshow of about 20 images from the game HERE

System Requirements:


This isn't a game for those who just want to have a quick game to fill in some time. It takes a lot of though and planning to play the game successfully. This isn't my type of game, so found it difficult to review. Overal though I think it's a well constructed game that's reasonable priced, (though that doesn't concern us here because we are getting it for free).

You can post comments and suggestions over in the appropriate forums over on the developers site HERE
