Side-scrolling beat ’em ups have been taking the Xbox Live Arcade by storm over the last few weeks, and this week is no exception. Now available on the XBLA is Foul Play, a beat ’em up from Devolver Digital that takes place entirely on a theater stage. Priced at $14.99, Foul Play is also available for the PC through Steam:
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.
