 Out of your Mind
Commercial fades in
“Feel like your cerebral cortex is out of whack? Is your gray matter about to splatter? Has your prescription for Prozac run out of refills? Dr. Phil not returning your calls?

Well then clear your brain of all accumulated gunk with a good mental flossing.Yes, you that heard right -a mental flossing!
And we have just the place for you, Belinda Blissful's Brain Holistic Luxury Spa! Where Belinda’s motto is “Indulge and delight your overworked, overwhelmed brain and go home negative free to pursue your life in a less meaningless way!” Commercial fades out.

Your task, as one of Belinda's new assistants, is to de-gunk your patients' brains to rid them of all the no-good Nega-Tic creatures clouding their psyches; those nasty little buggers that make us do bad things.

And the good news is, mental flossing can be done by just about anyone, you don’t even need a medical degree or any special training to perform (be afraid, be very afraid!)
But, is everything really as it seems? Or, does your new boss, the mystifying Belinda Blissful, have something sinister in mind?

You're given a cross-sectional view of your client's noggin that's filled with all sorts Tics and junk, you must draw a line of floss from the Tic Trap (a spool of mental floss) to the matching color Nega-Tics, to make a loop. As you do, draw a circle around as much matching color brain gunk as you can. Once you've cleared out the client's (victims) gunk, the Tics will finally stop coming, then quickly remove all that remain and wrap things up.

Believe me it sounds a lot easier than it actually is, you'll need to be incredibly precise and accurate with your loops or it rejects it and you are forced do it all over again. On top of all that, you'll need to act fast as the clock is Tic-ing; don’t take too long brain-storming your next move because Nega-tics are fast and furious! They expand quickly and explode all over the place, leaving more and more goo to clear. Nasty!

Examples of Some Nega-tics:
Chao-tics: hard to catch, erases memories, disrupts thought processes.
Neuro-tics: lurks in dark corners of your mind, creates all sorts of negativity.
Fran-tics: trigger panic attacks, the fastest of all the Tics.
Pessimis-tics: prowls around spreading gloom and doom.

Good thing there are some super cleansing Posi-Tics to help you out. As you could probably guess from the name, these Tics have a positive impact on the brain, shrinking Nega-Tics in size, freezing them in place or changing them all to the same color. They appear whenever you string 5 or more Tics together.

Not to get too negative or anything (especially here, Belinda might have me thrown out by security) but I feel like I must point out a few things, so I’ll risk it!

The difficulty levels ramp up pretty quickly just as you are learning the game's ins and outs. I felt overwhelmed right from the start so much so that I went back and replayed the tutorial; several times in fact. This helped somewhat, but it was extremely brief and to be honest with you, didn’t really touch on any of the important elements of gameplay.

It definitely won't appeal to those who prefer a more relaxed form of mental gameplay So, if you get frazzled easily by frantic action, look elsewhere because “Out of Your Mind” will quite simply disturb you.

On a positive note, “Out of Your Mind” has a great retro look and feel to it and some cool, catchy music to go along with it. And as you can tell by now, “Out of Your Mind” is somewhat unique and original. Rather than just being another puzzler in a long, line of clones out there, it is a hilarious, clever tongue in cheek jab at the billion dollar alternative medicine industry. Often times I felt the storyline and cut scenes were far more entertaining than the actual game!

Think you have what it takes to clear brains of neurological gunk and junk, without losing your mind in the process? Well then a few words of advice, put on your thinking caps, and keep some extra mental floss handy. You might just need it!
