I've never seen a tape deck that would "play"backwards, though it would be trivial easy to make most cassette players do that since they already reverse the motor direction (for decks that can play both "sides" of the tape without having to flip the tape over).

It would probably be pretty easy to hack an auto-reverse cassette deck to get it to play backwards, you would just need to disable the small head movement that aligns with the audio tracks for the A vs. B "sides" of the tape.
