Bem no estilo Castle Crashers, o jogo possui uma bela arte. A história é divertida e permite diversos detalhes que tornam o jogo uma experiência diferente.
Ex.: Como a história é interpretada em um teatro, ninguém morre de verdade, apenas se finge de morto e sai de cena (ou é retirado) quando ninguém está olhando.

Os diálogos são divertidos e complementam bem o jogo. O único ponto negativo nesse aspecto é que não existem vozes, o diálogo é todo em texto (mas textos curtos, frases em grande parte) e os personagens apenas emitem um grunhido. De qualquer forma isso não estraga a diversão.

Jogo altamente recomendado para quem gosta do estilo e gosta de um jogo mais 'descontraído'. Algumas pessoas dizem que chega a ser melhor do que Castle Crashers.

It's a fun game, especially coop. One thing that irks me though. It's a console port, the move list is explained in controller signs - "A" "X" etc. even if I select keyboard as my primary controller. Other games are intelligent enough to list the moves in "space" "shift" etc.

One major annoyance. In Play 3 game crashed to desktop and after I restarted it all my progress was wiped. I had to start from the very beginning. Very very annoying. Otherwise it's very funny and fun game.

Beat em' up game. Who could have known that in old times people enjoyed looking at gentleman punching in the face some weird-looking guys? i didn't but now I know. Also this game suffers on the same problem like Sonic 4 Ep. II. Nobody plays it online. Better get some friend if you prefer coop. Did I say it's very awesome idea of putting fights into a theatre? If not then I'm telling you this! If you like punching people in front of the crew then buy it.

The game is pretty entertaining for about a half hour but the gameplay is repetitive and boring. Mashing buttons through hordes of similar, week, enemies. While the humor was clever my co-op partner and I didnt pay it any mind and just continued to progress through the boring enemies with the same attacks.

I didn't "die" this entire game except once and that was on purpose to see if it was even possible. The only thing that makes this game difficult is completing the optional challenges but getting through the main game itself is a breeze that only requires mindless button mashing to complete. I tried to play this game with another person but they got bored really quick, so I ended up playing it on my own.

On the plus side the graphics and animations are great.

But Castle Crashers is way better than this.

Looks really fun, but I have not been able to get this game to start. Go on the forums and you will see that others are experiencing the same black screen infinite loading when the game launches. Emailed the developers for assistance, but none was received. Tried the forums, seems it might be related to Windows 7 64-bit?

Oh well, would love to play this potentially fun game, but cannot in its current state.

Como sou um grande fã de Beat’em Ups desde a época de Golden Axe, não tem como não ficar encantado com o jogo. Apesar de toda simplicidade, o jogo realmente tem algo mágico, que nos enfeitiça com o conjunto de seus gráficos e seu humor.
O combate é simples e intuitivo, com uma curva de aprendizagem amigável – especialmente para quem já é familiar ao gênero. A história também é um tanto interessante, o que é bem incomum para jogos do gênero.
Os únicos pontos fracos que considerei são a listagem de comandos mostrando botões do Xbox 360, a falta de drop-in, e a falta de exibição do ping no lobby online.
Ainda acrescento que o jogo poderia muito bem ter outro modo de jogo fora a campanha, visando outros tipos de desafio, que poderiam aumentar sua vida útil. Mas tudo bem, não chega a fazer falta, considerando o número de desafios que a campanha oferece.
Fora esses pequenos detalhes, não tenho do que reclamar: o jogo já me rendeu boas horas de diversão, tanto sozinho quanto acompanhado.
Resumindo: recomendo muito para jogadores casuais que apreciem humor, história e estilo nos jogos, e especialmente para fãs de Beat’em Ups, que irão achar os controles bem responsivos e poderão apreciar a liberdade de movimentação e de criação de combos nos combates.

Foul play é um game muito bem feito, com excelentes acabamento gráficos e em idioma português que o valoriza.
Um jogo narrativo, que voce joga, e busca pelas informações da história de Baron Dashforth o caçador de demonios, tudo isso sempre com muito humor da platéia e dos figurantes do teatro. ( Trilha sonora por conta da platéia )

Recomendo.

This game is just awesome. Amazing hand crafted art, a large variety of combos, and a main character who looks just like the Pringles guy. The game play is fast, intuitive and never really gets boring.

The idea of an on-stage brawler alone is pretty genius, seeing the audiences reaction to your on-screen action is bloody awesome. The game is quite easy since I only actually ran into trouble on the last boss of episode 5, I hadn't "died" before then.

The time it takes to finish is probably just about right for a game of this style, I wasn't getting bored towards the end, I just think that one more episode would of been a bit too much.

I'd definitely recommend anyone stick this one on their wish-list to pick up in the up coming sale.

The brawler genre, simple as it may be, is one of my very favorites -- I include Scott Pilgrim and Castle Crashers when discussing my favorites games. So, I was predictably excited to pick up Foul Play upon its release. The art style looks fantastic and the presentation (while gimmicky at first) is fresh and creative.

Unfortunately, the gameplay is pretty shallow. Granted, the brawler genre is not known for its depth of gameplay, but, after running through the first few levels, I can legitimately say that simply mashing buttons is a viable, if not more effective strategy to defeating enemies. While it's amusing enough to try to string together juggles and combos, knowing that I could be blindly smashing keys to accomplish the very same thing diminishes any sense of reward or accomplishment I could have attained.

I really wanted to like this game; it's cool looking, kitchsy, and charming. Ultimately, though, I just couldn't bring myself to finish it. Maybe when it drops to around $2.50, it might be worth purchasing. At the time of writing, however, it's sitting at $7.49 during the 2013 Winter Sale. So, this brawler fan must give Foul Play a thumbs down.

My friend persuaded me to play this with him while on skype, with the both of us acting out the story using our poor british accents for hilarious results. Many lols were had, especially with how quirky the game is.

Quite a good game, with how my friend and I played Foul Play made the experience highly entertaining.

Foul Play.

Let me tell you here and now, there's nothing foul about this title. In fact, it strenghtens my love for indie developers more than big publishers, developers, whatever. Devolver does it again. After Shadow Warrior being recommended by quite a few people and Serious Sam 3, which despite its flaws did provide me with quite some good entertainment, I got my hands on Foul Play.

What I love about indie games is the fact that from time to time you get a game that may look like something familiar but then it throws a twist and after just a few minutes of game time you realize that there's nothing quite like it.
On with the first impression shall we?

Gameplay wise, despite it obviously being built with a controller in mind, keyboard works quite well. The controls are responsive and you really don't feel at a loss. That being said I don't doubt it's better with a controller.

The game is presented as a standard side-scrolling brawler with combos, unlockables, skills, perks in the form of charms and so on. Nothing special about that you would think but you would be wrong.

The art style is what sets it apart from any other game out there. The whole story unravels on stage. And no, I'm not kidding. You and your partner, the game featuring 2 player coop, are actors reenacting a story from a journal that you get to unlock page by page as the story progresses. As such, you always see the spectators, sometimes with a special request, the background scenery being changed and from time to time you catch the actors off-guard or even the janitor at his best.

The point of each performance is to get the highest score by getting big combos, doing the above-mentioned special requests and of course by not getting hit. What's more interesting is the fact that you can't die. All you have to worry about is the quality of your performance, trying to fill the always present meter and amaze the crowd allowing you to do even more impressive stunts as a reward.
I hate to finish in a negative manner but I do have some cons to point out. First off, the graphics settings are not there. That I didn't find too bad but, the game doesn't feature 16:10 resolutions. The second and last con would be the fact that the game being created with a controller in mind, all the instructions for let's say combos and controls are only pointed out for the controller even if you are using a keyboard. It's not big of a deal since the game uses 10-12 keys including WASD but a con is a con.

At the end of this, the verdict would be a 9/10 the above mentioned not being able to affect my experience with the game so far in a such a manner that it fails to provide what you would expect from it. My advice? If you're into old-school sidescrolling brawlers bought into the 21st century this is a must. You could do far worse with 14.99,you could get Call of Duty: Ghosts...

Quirky humor, unique game mechanics, and an original theme- What else could you ask for? The girlfriend and I play this Local Co-Op helped out by full controller support! We have a lot of fun doing our own voice acting for the scenes, really getting in to the spirit of the theme and experiencing it all play out. Fantastic fun game, buy it! (Oh, did I mention I did this all under Linux? :D )

Foul Play is an original beat 'em up game where you fight for an audience. The story is told like it's a play so you're actually fighting actors in suits. The better you fight the more impressed your audience will be. Impress them enough to gain more stars and to level up, unlocking charms (which grant bonuses) and new moves (those are also fun for replaying levels). It's a charming game, with pretty graphics and enough detail in the characters. Movements could use some work though. Sometimes they're a bit limited, so it makes the game look cheap. Voice overs are nowhere to be seen, except for a few 'hey's' and 'oh's', things like that.

The music also didn't impress, because I can't remember if there even was music in it in the first place, and if so, if it was any good.

Foul Play is an impressive little game nevertheless and should be played if you're into beat 'em ups or if you have a lot of time on your hands (in my opinion, it's more fun to play in 30 minute sessions).

[Rating: 71/100]

Fast, frantic..........a bit on the easy side, but undeniably fun as you mash those combos together. Visuals are pretty without being groundbreaking, and the artwork is decent. The main campaign is short but fair for what you pay, and you always have the replay value of revisiting earlier levels to improve your scores and target missed objectives.

Recommended. 7.5/10
