A game not about chickens #33: Foul Play

All the world's a stage...

I originally thought this game was about chickens. I wondered what happened to that Fowl Play game I had in my Steam library. Yes... I am that big of a Nutbug.

Foul Play is a side scrolling co-op game. You can play solo, or with your sexy American boyfriend. I chose to play with Babes. The 2 characters are Dashforth and Scampwick.
You will notice an audience in the front of the screen. Thankfully, the audience are a lot more easily impressed than Queen Brahne.

Gather round, youngins.

Each level has 3 optional objectives. These will include things like "Defeat the Mummy Leader last" and "Get a combo of 75 during the act". You will get a rating out of 5 stars. If you do complete all the objectives in one try, this won't instantly net you a perfect score. You still need to earn your points, mostly gained by forming combos.

Babes is
Star Performer.

However, if you are lucky enough to complete all 3 bonus objectives, you unlock a charm. The charm accessories assist your performance in each level.The charms grant you abilities such as receiving more fame points when they are awarded.

Like these Humpty's could even make a tea.

Interestingly enough, this game has no health bar whatsoever. The enemies attacking you will destroy your combos if you don't have Smooth enough Moves to block them. Getting 5 stars on a level is extremely difficult.Your characters can also get a special power up which doubles (or quadruples, as they are stackable) your points for combos.

I can fly, bitches.

The story has 22 levels, which take us through Egypt and Cairo. It will also take you to the depths of the ocean, they better let me know if they find A Link Between Worlds down there.

There's some weird bondage group sex going on here.

There are some really cool looking boss fights at the end of each play. You will fight a bearicorn and a robot. The robot is cooler than Chibi Robot. (Not that that's hard)

What I imagine Skittles Puke to be like. Taste the Rainbow.

I'd highly recommend this game to anyone. Especially to D. I mean, c'mon, man, Burger Time is cool and all, but you need to move on, whilst still acknowledging your love for making (the world's 2nd best) burgers. It's fun, addictive and I'm surprised I haven't heard anything about it. Each copy on Steam comes with the soundtrack free of charge.


  1. So a steampunky ninja and Mr Monopoly team up to play fowl? These are some rather interesting games.

    1. You need to get a gamepad so you can play shit like this with bestie.

  2. Another thing about this game is that it doesn't explain SHIT. "Perform 5 Ace Returns, guv". What the hell is an Ace Return? The game ain't talkin'. You look online to no avail. It turns out the only way you could know is to read a novel hidden ten menus deep.

    1. I'll human cannonball the fuck out of you if you speak foully of this game again.

    I thought we figured out the Ace Return thing? It's probably something to do with parrying, attacking, jumping etc.

    The kid from the cutscenes was awesome.

    1. Yeah, the lollipop kid was.

      And I think babes forgot. His memory is the worst, except for D's.
