Sometimes we think that if we could change something from our past, our whole life would turn out differently. In Backstreets of the Mind, join a man who has been given the ability to travel through time and change his own past. He'll have to face the mistakes of youth, the challenges of college life and the missed opportunities of the workplace to try and change the sequence of events.

Avid gamers will enjoy stylized mini-games with old game animations. Backstreets of the Mind features hidden object gameplay where you search for strange titles in locations which look like plain signboards at first glance. At the same time, you'll be trying to place the "right" thoughts into our hero's mind in order to change his destiny. All of this is accompanied by excellent original soundtracks and an engaging story.

  • Dramatic time travel story
  • Hidden Object with original mechanics
  • Mini-games stylized like old machines
  • Two alternative endings of story

Customer Reviews
Backstreets of the Mind is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect HO for My Style of Play I am always happy to see a game offering that is mostly pure Hidden Object, with no adventuring to and fro. I am not a serious, dedicated gamer like most of the reviewers. I play in short intervals (15-30 minutes), often with a few days between visits to my PC. Adventure games where you have to remember where to go, and what to do when you get there, are frustrating instead of fun. If you like HO games such as the Big City Adventure series, the Park Ranger series, etc. you will probably like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting and fun Backstreets of the Mind sounds like it should be a dark game, but it's quite the opposite really and I had a few chuckles during the demo. It's a traditional HOG heavy game with a great concept - going back in time to change events. During the demo, there were a couple of different locations, with the family home being a repeating location. This makes sense, as we start off exploring the man's childhood and the events he would like to change. After a HOG round, cards are displayed, showing the event. You then choose, from a selection of objects one item to change that event. The cards are displayed again, showing the outcome of your choice. There were two enjoyable mini-games in the demo. The storyline was very engaging and made me want to continue playing and change this man's life around. Overall, it was a lot of fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightfully Different Pretty much unlike most HOS games. This is just a really laid-back game for a lazy day when one doesn't feel too much like being challenged. Additionally the 'Zoom' feature made it even more relaxed. I enjoyed it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love challenges after looking at backstreets of the mind [demo] makes you think the game is a challenge but with some fun thought has been put into it. if all goes well, I will buy the game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting........... But I loved the idea of the game, but I had the whole game beat in an hour and it wasn't really a challenge for me. I do love the idea behind it, I mean who wouldn't love changing the past, but it just didn't do it for me. Maybe for a little kid it would be great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So so I am one of those rare people who actually like the old fashion hidden object games. So from that perspective this game fit the bill. I did think the game ended way to quickly and I didn't care for the mini games, they were way to arcade like for my taste. I would recommend this game only to those who are like me and like the old fashion hidden objects games where you get a list of object to find and don't have to spend a lot of time trying to figure out where to go and what to do. This is, to me, a mind "resting" game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of HOPs and Mini-games with More HOPs and Mini-games So late one night, you courageously help a stranger. Your reward is the ability to go back into your past and change moments in your life that did not come out the way you would have liked. Good stuff: Each time you go back will involve completing a HOP with a list of items to find that fills in with more items as you find the first things - you will usually end up revisiting the scene a couple of times. You will get to pick an item from a selection of three of the things you found. You use that item to change the past as needed. The first set of choices has no good options. The second set will be more helpful, but you will have to finish a second HOP with a new list of items at the same scene to get to that set. There was a ratio of 1 mini-game to 3 HOPs. There is no inventory to hold or collect. When you complete a group of HOPs and attendant mini-game, you will see the effect on your family in the past. Bad stuff: There are no animated sequences or VOs - you will look at well drawn pictures and read dialogue - or not, as it can be skipped. Some item names are incorrect or the item is referred to by a name not familiar in English. There is a single level of game play and nothing is new or exciting. You just go from HOP to HOP to mini-game to HOP, etc. Some HOP items were extremely tiny on my huge monitor to such an extent that even after getting a hint, I had to randomly click in the area indicated to find the teeny whatever. Please appreciate that you will not have to save the world - at least not in the demo. And no cute animal will jump or fly after items out of reach. This is an extremely low key and old fashioned game. Please try the demo before taking the plunge.
