This is a submission to the Lost Cartridge Jam 4, as such, it is designed to be believable and feel like a vintage game,  that gives the impression of having been lost in a drawer for decades only to be rediscovered in the present day.

This is the "Story"
"Hey, call me Elvies. I was cleaning up the attic at my grandfather's, who worked at Nintendo and Konami back in the day and found this Game Boy Cart with a smudged / scratched-up sticker, as such, I cant clearly see its title.
I never got to play the Game Boy since I grew up in a poor family and always wondered how the game back then felt with pixelated graphics and crappy controls.
When I got back I tried it on a retro console my brother used to have but to no luck, it didn't work.
So now I've ripped the contents and found that the game was a tech demo for an unreleased Castlevania game! It got no music but has sfx, there were a lot of bugs and glitches, and only contains 1 level, but you can control 3 characters!!! This is like Castlevania III but on the Go!
I made a fan box art on what it could've looked like if it was released. I do not own any of the licenses here but game preservation is important so please enjoy!
"

Now wasn't that fun to imagine? XD The "tech demo" was made with GB Studio by Chris Maltby and all art assets are made from scratch by yours truly.
