While some of the last Apollo material was added to our database, I noticed the Kyphus box on this Apollo poster:

IMO Kyphus was indeed one of the Apollo titles soon to be released.

Also visible is the Pompeď box and the Squoosh box (third from last).

All the artwork visible on the boxes match exactly with the released artwork seen on the released blue Apollo boxes, so I have no doubt that the artwork was finished for Kyphus and Squoosh as well.

I'll try to get a close-up of the visible Kyphus artwork.

As promised:

Well, it's not much but at least it's a glimpse of the Kyphus artwork.

Model number is also readable.

It sort of looks like a wizard staff in that picture.

Yes.

There's also some sort of robe and an explosion visible.

Not really telling us much, is it?

Also, the 'wizard' is wearing sandals.

Well, the three words hidden in the code of the (supposed to be) Kyphus prototype (Protect, Destroy and Invoke) do sound like wizard 'spells', so that leads to the direction that the found prototype is indeed Kyphus.
