We are moving all Atari Lynx related content over to Atari Lynx Vault and all our shop content over to K-Retro Gaming. Please update your bookmarks!

As a result of this change, the following will no longer be available: Online Lynx Emulator, Collection Tracker, Game Ratings, News. If you are interested in contributing content to Atari Lynx Vault, we are seeking editors and maintainers.

Why is this happening? First - the Atari Gamer branding is changing to K-Retro Gaming to allow us to expand to providing games, replacement parts, and mod services to other game consoles. And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a new and modern content management system and chose a website domain that better suits the subject matter. Since we are operating this website in our spare time, on top of full time family and job committments, some features had to be dropped.

  3. I.Basque Tournament of Atari Lynx (August 2021)

Back in February this year the I.Basque Tournament for Atari Lynx and Atari 2600 was held. And now, 6 months down the track, the follow up tournament took place. Kudos go out to the organisers in putting this on, especially since we're still in a pandemic situation. It's great to see that the attendants were wearing masks, and more importantly Lynxing it up! Even small events like this keep the Lynx alive! 😻

So now over to the organiser to hear about what went on at the tournament...

On the 26th of August 2021, the Euskal Retro association organized another gaming tournament featuring the Atari Lynx. This time it was called the "I. Bizkaia Tournament of Atary Lynx". Lynx wasn't the only Atari console at the event though, we also played the Atari 2600.

We had 7 participants again, same as back in February, with a number of repeat visitors. We had both consoles running at the same time to have everyone engaged. The games we had were played in order so we can keep better track of scores. Everyone had a great time playing both consoles. 🕹

Same as at the last event, we played three games on the Lynx - Toki, Checkered Flag and Scrapyard Dog. Some of the comments that people have said were "Lynx is more fun than Game Boy" 😻

A timeline of the events... We started with Toki the gorilla who has to advance in his world as much as possible and kill or avoid his enemies. The player with the highest score won. Then we played Checkered flag. This time, as in February, the player who completed the lap of the first circuit in the shortest possible time won. Finally, we finished the tournament playing Scrapyard dog. In this game you have to try to advance with your character as much as possible in order to find your dog. Nice game. In this round, the player with the most points won.

And here are the results of the tournament...
