Analogue have announced the Pocket. It's definitely something to get for your retro gaming! You will need to get an additional adapter for Atari Lynx cartridges though. Check out what they had to say -

A multi-video-game-system portable handheld. A digital audio workstation with a built-in synthesizer and sequencer. A tribute to portable gaming. Out of the box, Pocket is compatible with the 2,780+ Game Boy, Game Boy Color & Game Boy Advance game cartridge library. Pocket works with cartridge adapters for other handheld systems, too. Like Game Gear. Neo Geo Pocket Color. Atari Lynx & more. Completely engineered in two FPGAs. No emulation.

So if you want to see these games in action and see Mike get stuck and then find his way out (not to your heart!) then head on over to YouTube and watch the video.

We've made a mistake! In our best and worst rated Atari Lynx games article we erroneously stated that Zaku was the best voted game, lack of sleep consumed us it seems! However our keen readers pointed out that it is in fact Lemmings that is the winner! Apologies about that! 😅

The Online Atari Lynx Emulator has been updated with some extra features today. The default scaling is set to 2x now to have a more faithful reproduction of games.
