Not saying that this will or won't be the case for you, but not all horses respond well to those "games".
I've seen horses that just don't respond well to some techniques (games) Parelli uses/promotes. Even to the point of becoming dangerously agitated.
If your horse isn't responding you are perfectly capable of coming up with some other way to get it to respond (but you seem to already be thinking that way). Remember that for the horse it's first about understanding what you're asking it to do and than wanting to do it.
It can easily not understand what your asking so try asking in a different way. Reward even the smallest success (e.g. If you want him to back up even on step backwards is a success so stop and reward). He'll soon pick up on what you want (even if it's by small amounts) and want to earn rewards.
