A prototype of Back to Stone for the Game Boy Advance.


  • Early prototype.
  • Game boots to rotating colors. After several seconds, the game boots into the language selector like the final European version.
  • Language selector is different. In this build, the game includes the Deutsch language which was removed from the list and defaults to the French option. The background is black in this build while the final uses a white background instead, utilizing a different font for the menu itself.

  • Slightly different title screen. Title screen has a press start button while the final build boots to a small main menu on the title screen.
  • Opening cutscene is missing.
  • Pressing starts loads up a save selector.
  • Missing prisoners at the beginning of the level.
  • Pressing SELECT brings up a debugger.
