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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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

Game & Lynx: Critter Championship

A collection of mini-games for Atari Lynx. Paying homage to classic LCD games of the 80s!

Canyons: help the critters pass the canyon as they walk! Use Left/Right to move the bridge on the top level, and A/B to move the bridge to the lower level. Be aware! You need to move the bridge in position right before the critter walks on it, otherwise it will fall.Three falls is game over.

Showdown: attack or block based on the numbers indicators! When your number is higher, you should attack, when your number is lower, you should block! If the numbers are the same, attack as fast as you can!In Game A you will be competing against the CPU and have a limit of three fails. In Game B you will compete against another player and play for whoever gets to 50 points the quickest.
Player 1: Left - block, Right - attack
Player 2: A - block, B - attack

Jelly Jump: Move the critter with the egg to the other side of the water. Use Left-Right to move the critter around. Make sure there is someone to pick up the egg on the other side, otherwise you can get stuck waiting. Avoid falling into the water when the jelly fish make a dive for a fish snack!Three falls is game over.
