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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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

There are a number of different ways to enjoy Atari Lynx ROMs. Whether you have the original console or just want to try out some emulation options, we've got you covered. The original console used cartridges for all games, you can find many of these for sale still, but if you are after homebrew games, you need to invest into a flash cartridge that uses and SD card to store ROMs. Check out your options for Atari Lynx SD Cartridges here.

If you're interested in making your own cartridges, you need to get our Lynx Programmer Pi-Hat. It will let you 'burn' ROMs to real cartridges for the Lynx (ordered separately). We also provide an SD card pre-loaded with all our ROM packs in our shop, under the ElCheapoSD shop category.

Below are the current ROM download packs that we provide free of charge...
