  • Summary: Play as the daemon hunter Baron Dashforth in a side-scrolling brawler set ENTIRELY on a theater stage. Perform shattering takedowns and reversals. Electrify spectators with linked attacks, have a friend join as sidekick Scampwick and use every stage-trick you know to bring the house down. Play out the most spectacular moments of the Baron’s life; improbable beasts, astonishing villainy and, at the heart of it all, the mysterious Foul Play. Expand

    Foul Play runs under the premise of being an action filled theater play, so you'll have to keep your audience entertained at all times. The level and character design helps maintain this illusion, and even though you'll see the actor's faces beneath the monster's costumes, the cheering of the crowd will be enough motivation to don your monocle and kick some demonic butt.

    Foul Play is a fantastic looking, beautifully written brawler with a great gimmick that goes much deeper than simply putting an audience in the foreground and renaming the health meter.

    One of the best beat ’em ups/brawlers we’ve played in a good while, and the spectacular daemon beatings you’ll be handing out makes Foul Play well worth the price of admission.

    Foul Play is absolutely charming and a good co-op game. However the length is too short and the game itself is too easy.

    A charming co-op friendly adventure for fans of games like Castle Crashers. Foul Play might not be a master piece, but is still worth your hard-earned money.

    It's simple and quite repetitive, but the story and how much fun it has to give us makes it worth our time if we're looking for a game based on smashing buttons.

    Foul Play is a quite nice beat 'em all with its unique aesthetic, but its gameplay lacks of depth. We would have appreciate more combos, more difficulty and more variety.

    Foul Play is a really fun, easy arcade game and I'm glad I played it. To be honest, the last couple battles aren't easy, but everything else is. It's one of those games you just want to plough through and turn off your brain, get your hand/eye coordination muscles some play without having to think. Great fun! Expand

    Foul Play is a great but predictable game that becomes repetitive over time. This game has great graphics and the game play is flawless. For $14.99 it’s a great pick up. Expand
