At the time I am writing this review I am already in love with this game
Foul Play is a unique beat 'em up taking place in a play, do to this you will often find yourself in strange situations such as having a kid yell challenges from the audience and having "enemies" forget their lines or encountering the janitor working on stage.

Doesn't work with Xbox One controller. Controller works fine in windows and other games, but not this one.

Foul Play is a great brawler, best played in co-op mode, that takes about 4h to finish. There is no life bar, and you cannot die in this game, the player performs to amuse the audience and complete a different set of challenges each level, in order to unlock different abilities and charms (items that provide bonus stats).
Sometimes, I encountered a few game breaking bugs(2-3 times), and had to restart the level, one such bug occurred during the final boss battle, right before the final hit.
Even though the game has the already mentioned problems, it's still great and a lot of fun to play, especially in co-op mode.

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.

Took me a while to get into a online match up and when I finally got in one...that other guy left, guess I should've expected some foul play.

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.

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...

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]
