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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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. Let's take a look at these 6 new homebrew games for Atari Lynx

The Lynx Programming Competition 2020 has come to an end now and that means that there are new games for Atari Lynx fans to try out. This year's competition didn't draw in as many entries as the one last year, but I dare say that the quality of this year's entries is well over par!

The competition was hosted over at this time around, which provided for a much better platform for entry submissions and now opens up all the games for rating by the public. So be sure to try out each game, you can play them all online via our Atari Lynx Emulator. Direct links to play the games are down below. The competition was sponsored by RetroHQ, Mark/Space: Project Argon and AtariAge.

There are six games and six different genres, including some unusual games with the like never seen on Atari Lynx before. We have a puzzle game, shooter, runner, sports, boardgame and a platformer to boot. Lets take a quick look at each one...
