Eat This is a side-scrolling platform game in which the player controls a bald trucker named Leon. He has to fend off aliens who are invading the United States of America. Using an assortment of guns, rockets and bombs the player has to kill aliens.

The player controls Leon with the cursor keys while aiming and shooting with the mouse. A crosshair, which moves independently from the character, is used to target enemies in a similar fashion to Abuse. Each level ends with a giant alien boss that needs to be defeated. Along the way the player can pick up health balls to replenish his health.

The game started as a shareware game, where only the first levels of the opening episode, Invasion, were playable. The full version on CD offers all the levels of Invasion and two other full episodes, called Kicking their Butt and Last Assault.
