  3. Atari Lynx games that would have most benefitted from backing music

Did you hear that? Yes, the silence! 🙉

Unfortunately, there are Atari Lynx games out there that missed out on some nice backing tracks, which would have really enhanced the playing experience. Some stories circulate every so often about the difficulty of fitting or coordinating theme music into Lynx games. Whether or not this is an issue, there is no doubt that a good music track would have made a difference to many titles.

Let’s take a look at a few of these games, and what kind of music would have suited the context!

SWITCHBLADE 2 & POWER FACTOR - some atmospheric sci fi tracks would have gone down nicely here. It’s a bit cold and isolated without backing music.

BATTLEZONE 2000, CYBERVIRUS & BATTLE WHEELS - some thumping, military-style tracks would have really suited the action here.

KLAX & BLOCKOUT - a variety of atmospheric tracks would have enhanced these two fun puzzling experiences.

S.T.U.N. RUNNER & [[ROADBLASTERS__/lynx/game/RoadBlasters/1758123820]] - some techno beats to match the speed! You know what I’m talking about! If you’ve played ‘Fast Racing: NEO’ on the WiiU, you’ll recall those awesome racing tracks!

If I had the technology and the tools, I’d love to (legally) insert music into all of these games and see how differently they’d turn out!
