Usual mechanics with a gerat atmosphere. Really enjoyable and relatively long. I got it on a 75% offer, but it worths all the money they ask for it.

I can honestly say that this is an amazing game. I picked this game up when it was on sale, but it is well worth the $15.00 full price. The best part of this game is the local multiplayer; I played this with my brother all morning. The combat doesn't take too much getting used too, but there is still a layer of depth when it comes to getting high combos. There are lots of chellenges that are keeping my brother and I engaged in the game. On a different note, there is actually a decnt story, filled with quirky brittish humor that pushes this game over the top.

Fairly simple but fun beat em up couch co-op game. Not very long unless you're maxing out on stars or trying to beat all the challenges. Probably took us 3.5 hours to beat. Definitely worth it at a sale price.

This sure is a beat 'em up. Good one too. If you like that stuff, if that really toasts your biscuits up all nice and warm, then this is the game for you. If you accidentally have friends, it's a great co-op time probably, I would imagine.

It's all nice and style and a pleasure to look at with your eyes in its quaintly indie 2D-type way.

The moves are fun to do. I take great joy in pretending to murder these bad men and creatures.

A downside is, is that if you do not like to beat them up, then this would really be not a good game at all, but boy howdy I love to bring the pain.

You can make really good combos and it's too easy to get a combo that is a higher number than the dollars in my bank account. 4/4, highly recommend.

If you have a bit of money to spend and a someone to play with using two controllers, you must give it a go.
The graphics are as seen above - characteristic and pleasing, the sound is just right and the mechanics will give you the joy of beat-em-ups long gone with enough twists and combos to help you battle through the game without getting bored.
As you can see, I finished the game in 5hrs, so it's a one-night experience, but you are free to squeeze more fun and achievements after finishing the amusing storyline.

Foul Play, is very intresting game. Not because on the graphic or anything like that, but because of the gamplay comcept as well.
The game does not really have a life bar, rather have a thing called "Mood-o-meter". It's basically beating people up, mood-o-meter fills, do nothing during combat and/or get hit bu an enemy, loses some mood-o-meter, more mood-o-meter, more points, meaning more stars (maximum 5), lose Mood-o-meter to 0%, Game Over and must try the act again.
I love every second of this gameplay, espically with one of my budding who we Skype call and play together (He is playing the game first time, and I am playing it for 100% completion).
The story mode, while simple, really does make it intresting. Sure, it might be just there for the sake of being there, but I still do like it.
The graphic, while cartoony, fits the gameplay and the concept, FOUL PLAY, rather easily.
However, I really do enjoy this game, not because of having fun only, but having fun with friends and finding things rather enjoyable, even if it wasn't intended, Example: Lag in cutscenes. Plus getting all achievement can be very rewarding (haven't 100% it, but got some and proud of it too!).

So here's My Final verdict:
Recommen: beat-em-up, fun with a friend and/or 100% the game with hard but (mostly) fair challange!
Gameplay: Enjoyable, espically with friends during Skype calls!
Graphic: Cartoony, but fits the game perfectly.
Music: Really forgetful, but in a good way as you enjoy once listened to it!

One of my new favorite Beat Em Ups ever, this game features a unique health system which encourages you to find the best combos possible. The story is an original mix of various monsters of myths: while other games would be happy with just zombies, this one features mummies, gargoyels, vampires, werewolves, mermen and much more. Mix that all up with a tongue and cheek framing device and an animation style that compliments it, and you have a game you simply must play.

TL;DR: Fun co-op, great presentation, but shallow gameplay and a short campaign not worth multiple playthroughs.

The presentation of the game is without a doubt its best feature: the backgrounds are shifted by stage hands, extras in costume pretend to be werewolves, and every object earned or lore page unlocked has flavorful text included. The set pieces are wonderful, and you'll find yourself chuckling at the background gags or soaking in the atmospheric cutouts of spooky castles and ancient pyramids.

It's a pretty standard beat-em-up with a token leveling system in place that grants you more moves, though you might not find the advanced skills as useful as your basic starting countestrikes. This game's mastery is based around countering your enemy's moves when they telegraph them, and its very satisfying to contunually float when you are able to chain multiple air grabs off of different enemies.

Unfortunately strategies for the levels and bosses are pretty basic, and when you've seen the same lines of text many times in order to get a level's achievements, the story's charm starts wearing thin. Co-op mode is definitely the way to go, as single player becomes repetitive quickly. The game is great for a playthrough with a buddy, but is probably too shallow to make getting all of the achievements much fun.

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.

What you have stumbled upon, Gentlemen, is a most nefarious plot of chivalry and woe, fit only for a stage whose grandeur and acoustics are rivaled only by the spectacle that will unfold within it. Speaking of spectacles, your monocle'd mainstay, Baron Dashforth, will awe you with athleticism, respire you with reveries, jaunt you with jocoseness...well you must understand by now, chap. The ballast of the Act teeters precariously, as unfathomable daemons, a clumsy custodian, and ghastly ghouls will relentlessly chase the utter annihilation of the prodigious protaginist. Procure yourself this gentleman's guide. If not for yourself, my languorous lad, then for the feeble scamp in the front row!

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.

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...

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).

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

My my, glad I got this - a very funny platformer.

If you have previously played Castle Crasher, this game is similar but more action-oriented.

So what, we control a character that's supposed to perform a... foul play. While we're performing our play on the stages, we move forward, beating enemies and pleasing our audiences with good performance.

The campaign is divided into five acts, each acts have five levels, each levels is approx ten-fifteen minutes long, a bit longer if you're into boss battles. The objective is simple, you just need to beat each enemy waves with style - be it by performing chain combos to fill and maintain the meter gauge (audiences' mood). Don't let it get too low or the curtain will close and game over. A bit lacking aspect, though, is that the campaign is incredibly linear - you have no option to do anything else and can only follow the direction the game wishes you to. You can, however, replay earlier stages from main menu to achieve higher scores.

The combat mechanic is very simple, chaining normal and powerful attacks while deflecting the enemies or throw them against each others. And this what differentiates from Castle Crasher, it offers more lively battles and flexible ala Devil May Cry DMC but in 2D. By chaining you'll be increasing your scores and earns stars that'll be calculated at the end of each level. As you progress, you'll unlock more abilities/perks to use in game. Use these to... chain more enemies. Heh.

And of course, playing coop is much more fun than alone. It's hilarious, really, to have a messed up battle on the stages.

Graphic wise I'm incredibly amused. It really is that great - suitable for this game - colorful and innately bunch sense of humor drawn into the art and character designs. Special effects don't distract you from the battles and carefully blend with the stages, movement and attack animations are not sluggish and feel natural. FPS throughout the level is stable enough even during chaotic battle. Some minus points though, there are no deep customizations like AA or refresh rate and some commonly supported resolutions are not supported. But overall, I'd say the job well done.

And lastly, controller support is great - and I expect it so much because this is a platformer. I wouldn't even give the game a damn great review if it had poor support, but this Foul Play is just apt at adapting controller support. Dinput and Xinput are both supported, moreover each buttons can be customized in game. No complaints from me on this aspect really.

Funny thing is, metacritic user score gives this 69/100. Don't listen - it deserves more. A recommended game from me.

This game looked really fun. It was recommended because I was playing castle crashers and I love castle crashers. So I was kind of looking forward to playing this game. I played it with my best friend when he came over. We played around the first 2 missions trying to make it as fun as we can with combos and voicing over the characters but we both realized something after the 2nd mission. It was really repetitive. all you really do is go around the screen and punch people around in the same environment. No power ups, lives, extra moves just punching the same people around the same environment for that level. This was a really big disappointment for me. The game play is there it's just I can't recomend it.

A quick, fun, beat-em-up game that focuses on combos and performance over KO's. I finished it in about 4 hours, which is about perfect, as there isn't much depth to the game and it would have gotten boring if it lasted much longer.

Funny beat-em-up made in theater setting with humorous storyline. It's nice in co-op but boring in single.

All the world's a stage... In this frantic 2-d button-mashing-tastic brawler game with Mr. Pringle and his rogue-like sidekick with a black bandana you go around kick baddies' butts castle crasher style! It can indeed become very repetitive were it not for the clever yet amusing character dialogues/monologues plus ability to deck out your character with special charms unlocked only via challenges presented in most scenes per act. The challenges themselves can be quite difficult to achieve ranging anywhere from as simple as perform a flawless scene to reaching as high as x200 hit combo in a scenario. Charms equippe grant special abilities such as giving you extra combo stacks after a successful parry of enemy attack or increase duration until combo wears off under which you must start accumulating them all over again. Grinding out high combo stack can boost audience mood drastically and also bring you high score multipliers--activating showstopper effect can accelerate this effect and help you reach high stacks faster but cannot be activated too frequently. Efficiency requires timing the activation at favourable windows of opportunity to facilitate earning high combos and score.

Very good game overall if you fancy castle crasher style gameplay, albeit solo most of the time--online multiplayer is dead. Despite the lack of a live online community, you can always grab your trusty fellow sidekick to deliver the performance of a century in local co-op action.
