A prototype of Mind Bender for the Game Boy.


  • Early prototype of Brain Bender (also known as Migrain in Japan) back when it was called Mind Bender.
  • Dated five and a half months prior to the earliest final build.
  • The Electro Brain logo is missing in the opening sequence.
  • As the game name is different, the title screens are, too.
  • The copyright screen lists the year 1989 rather than 1991.
  • The timer bar has a slightly different appearance.
