This scrapped minigame can be played in the Pokémon Gold and Silver Spaceworld 1997 Demo after waiting for an extended period of time on the title screen. The game takes place in the forest area from the introduction cutscene, and consists of Pikachu running to the left, with the player asked to collect as many music notes as possible. This can be done by using A to let Pikachu jump on platforms. There is a total of 306 notes, though it's worth noting that collecting them all does nothing. The game ends when Pikachu catches up to Jigglypuff, or if Start is pressed, both options returning the player to the title screen.
As a cute touch, from there the embers flying across the screen will be replaced with music notes. It is interesting to note that, whether intentionally or not, these notes also appear after backing out of the main menu, regardless if the minigame had been played beforehand. Backing out once again afterwards will return the title screen to normal, and so on.
