Foul Play Review - Midlife Gamer

CraigieH says "You wait years for a game that uses a theatrical backdrop as a presentational concept, and then two come along at once. Alongside the PS3’s Puppeteer, Foul Play uses the aesthetics of a constantly changing stage show to display it’s two-dimensional side scrolling beat-em up action. Brought to XBLA and Steam by mobile and browser developer Mediatonic, it is a strong example of it’s genre, hiding a surprisingly demanding set of fighting mechanics underneath it’s sharp and soft casual artwork that elevates it above similar games of it’s ilk." (Foul Play, PC, Xbox 360) 8/10
