Foul Play est très rigolo, l'humour est la base même de ce jeu. On joue sur une scène de théâtre, devant un public tout acquis à notre cause... enfin si l'on joue bien.

En effet, plus les combos sont réussis, plus le public crie, exulte, lance des chapeaux pour montrer sa joie. Et à l'inverse, si on joue mal, il nous hue et le game-over arrive.
Dans les faits, le jeu est tellement simple qu'il y a peu de chance que ça arrive.
Le gameplay est simple et rapide à prendre en main, malheureusement il y a peu de coups différents du coup ça devient un peu lassant.
Mais le point fort du jeu est son humour pince-sans-rire lors des échanges entre le héros, Mr. Dashforth, et son acolyte Scampwick. Ajouté à cela des figurants (grimés, en zombies, momies, pirates, fanatiques, etc.) qui oublient leur texte en pleine représentation, ou qui tentent lamentablement de sortir de la scène le plus discrètement possible, et vous avez là un excellent cocktail pour rire tout au long du jeu.
La musique est très bonne, à la fois entraînante et épique.
Bref, à petit prix Foul Play vous fera passer un moment sympathique, d'autant plus qu'il a un coop' pour jouer à deux, même s'il risque aussi de vous lasser à cause de son gameplay relativement pauvre.

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 )

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.

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.
