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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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

Argon is a multi-system emulator, currently supporting Atari Lynx, Intellivision, Coleco Vision, Atari 2600 and Vectrex. It's in a public beta and can be downloaded from the Google Play store. Argon is an emulator for Android devices like mobile phones, Chromebooks, tablets and even Raspberry Pi.

Argon lets you play games from your own collection as well as from our ever-expanding library of classic games and homebrew hits!

Argon is developed by Mark/Space, who have been an ongoing sponsor for most of our programming competitions. You can find out more details and get the latest information about Argon on its official website.

A selection of Atari Lynx homebrew games have been pre-loaded into the Argon library already and you can add your own ROMs (via Google Docs) so you can play pretty much everything that we have listed in our game database and from our ROM downloads page.

Argon features a nice, clean and modern interface that lets you select the system you want to emulate and then it displays the library of games available for that system. It can be controlled using keyboard or joystick too (as long as your device supports those methods of input of course).

Games rendered in Argon can have either the retro classic pixel-correct look or use pixel smoothing to achieve a more modern look with rounded edges and no pixelation.

See the Argon Info Knowledge Base articles for information like keyboard mappings, how to add your own custom ROM collections, etc.

There are many other options to Atari Lynx emulation, read about them here.
