You have no idea how much I wanted to love Bare Backstreets! A lewd beat-em-up game in the same style as the classic brawlers I grew up with in the 80s and 90s? Hell yeah, you better believe that this is a game I was very, very interested in. As I write this the game is still being worked on and some of the goodies are behind a Patreon wall, but hey I cannot hate for that as devs have to make money somehow!
Brawling And Banging
I have no idea what the hell is going on with the story here! Bare Backstreets is about these creatures who live in a world where there was this amulet that shattered and somehow the god of fertility is involved and everyone wants to bang our main character.
From what I gather the main character in the game is a raptor-looking dude called, Vergence, who is on a losing streak with the ladies, and the events that are going down could be just what he needs to get his sex life back on track. The story made no sense whatsoever to me, but at least they tried.
I have heard some people say that Bare Backstreets is a game that is aimed at furries. I can kind of see why if I am being honest. The main male character we play as called Vergence is a green raptor, but the female character we can play as is called Genesis and she certainly has that “furrier” look to her. There are other characters you can play as, but you will need to support the game on Patreon to play as them.
The presentation is decent enough. I think that most of the work clearly went into the various playable characters and enemy designs as these all look great. The game is still being worked on so there is a bit of repetition to the enemy designs, but to be fair games like Double Dragon and Final Fight use the same enemies over and over again, and no one ever complains about that.
The game has a very “flash game” kind of look to it and I think that the nice and bright colors of it all look good. There is a decent variety to the levels too ranging from a nice park to a dark and scary woodland area. The sex in the game happens actually in-game you can get banged or bang a monster.
Punching Thin Air
Look, I love beat-em-ups and I think that Bare Backstreets has some great ideas and it is still being worked on as I write this. The thing is the most important thing about a game of this style is the way it plays. There is a reason why games like Turtles in Time, Streets of Rage, and Double Dragon are still enjoyed to this day, they play great.
The problem here is the collision detection is all over the place. I have hit enemies when I am not even properly facing them. I can stand trying to hit an enemy only for my hits to have no effect, but as soon as they hit, I take damage. It just makes the game a more frustrating experience to play than it should be.
As I said, Bare Backstreets is a game that I so wanted to love and I do feel that there is a good game in here. The characters look great, I liked that the enemy placement is random and there is a decent selection of stages too. The thing is, the collision detection is so bad that most of the time you take cheap hits off the AI and it makes the game feel unfair. Even with this, I am going to keep on coming back to this as it is updated.
