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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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. Lynx 2020 Programming Competition

This is a programming competition for anyone wanting to show off their skills at coding for the Atari Lynx. If you think you have what it takes and want your game to be listed in our game database, join, submit and bask in the retro glory of this amazing console!

This year's theme is "Future", but that's future with a twist. Think about how the future would have been imagined back in the 1990s when this console was new. Think of the retro movie posters and the games at the time and imagine them 50 years forward. Flying cars, space exploration, living on the moon, visiting other planets, intelligent robots, blasters and mind control, plus many other wonderful things that were yet to come. We're talking about what the 2040s would look like if you were living in the 90s.

Of course this leaves it very open ended and you're only limited by your imagination!


The winners of this competition are: Xump 2, Timeloop and Asteroids Chasers. The ranking is calculated from the raw score, which is not adjusted based on the number of votes. Each game had very similar numbers of votes so this was deemed fair by the judges (and it was stated previously that the number of votes will not influence final rankings).

Apart from overall scores, the following detail scores have been assigned. These are not used for determining the entries' final placement however.

Well done to all the competitors! You've all done an excellent job!
