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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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

Obsession awaits. The game of ivory tiles, played by seafarers, scoundrels and emperors of the far east for centuries, is brought to you in modern form for the Lynx - as Shanghai.

Ancient tiles are stacked randomly in mystical shapes awaiting your challenge. 144 tiles beckon your skill and strategy in matching pairs, eliminating them from the board, while revealing new tiles underneath.

Accept the challenge alone or with a friend in a cooperative or competitive two-player game agains the Dragon, the Hawk, the Bear - any of seven different puzzle boards.

For 3000 years the dragon of tiles has challenged the Orient. Now it challenges you!
