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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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

Block Out

Easy to play, difficult to master, impossible to quit! Welcome to the world of Blockout! One of the most absorbing puzzle games ever devised. Drop as many 3-D blocks as you can into a pit without reaching the top. The better you do, the faster the blocks will fall. It takes skill to rotate each block into its best position without leaving any unfilled holes. This is 3-D puzzle action at its best!

Note: This French variant of Block Out came with a French manual and Lynx Pin(s) and and English poster.
