Atary Lynx also known as aLynx – the first portable system with color screen (4096 colors), backlit screen and the ability to rotate the screen to 180º (for the convenience of lefties). The console was released in the same year as the Game Boy (with monochrome screen) – 1989. The initial price of the Atari Lynx console was $199, while the Game Boy was priced $109. Despite the fact that the aLynx had color display and Game Boy – only black and white, the Nintendo won the start.
In the 1991 Sega released its Game Gear with color screen, which deprived the Atari Lynx the status of unique “color” handheld console. In 1994, the Atari completely ceased the support and development of the aLynx and in 1996 the development of the games has been stopped.
At present, there is only one Atari Lynx console emulator, which allows you to play most of the games. Atary Lynx roms games can be downloaded for absolutely free. With the help of the emulator you can get some cool roms and play your favorite games on the big screen computer.
