The 1990 Atari Lynx version of Paperboy is pretty good in terms of looks and gameplay. It’s not perfect, but the small screen doesn’t hurt the game too badly. When blown-up the screenshots look a bit indistinct, but during play the visuals work fine.

Super Asteroids & Missile Command, Atari Lynx
Super Asteroids & Missile Command are a pair of conversions of two classic Atari arcade games – Asteroids and Missile Command – squeezed onto one cartridge and released for the Atari Lynx in 1995. These two games were apparently the very last to be released for the Atari Lynx.

Blue Lightning, Atari Lynx
This arcade-style, third-person combat flight game was developed by Epyx and released exclusively for the Atari Lynx in 1989. Blue Lightning was actually a launch title for the North American release of the Lynx.
Robotron: 2084, Atari Lynx
The Atari Lynx conversion of Williams‘ classic arcade game, Robotron: 2084, was developed by Shadowsoft, Inc. and first released in 1991. And it is a decent port of the twin-stick shooter.
Hydra, Atari Lynx
Hydra is a third-person powerboat action game with driving game mechanics and presentation, and it’s fair to say that it is mostly hated by people who play it. It’s not that bad though… It’s actually a conversion of an obscure Atari arcade game from 1990. This conversion was released on the Lynx in 1992.
Qix, Atari Lynx
Taito‘s classic arcade puzzle game, Qix, received an Atari Lynx conversion in 1991, which was developed in-house at Taito of America and published by Telegames.
Raiden, Atari Lynx
The original Raiden, developed by Seibu Kaihatsu and published by Tecmo, came out in arcades in 1990. This handheld conversion wasn’t released until 1997 – well after Atari had discontinued the Lynx. And even then the game was only available by direct order, and through a few select retailers. It’s still available to buy now, at the time of writing.
Desert Strike, Atari Lynx
This conversion of the classic Sega Megadrive/Genesis game, Desert Strike, is about as good as you could expect on the Atari Lynx. Meaning: that it is very, very good indeed.
In fact: it is surprisingly close to the original, but obviously with smaller, more condensed graphics.
Pac-Land, Atari Lynx
Pac-Land on the Atari Lynx is a rather excellent conversion of Namco‘s classic 1984 arcade game of the same name. It features pretty much all the good things about the influential coin-op, including the cute, colourful graphics, smooth scrolling, and challenging gameplay.
Dinolympics, Atari Lynx
Also known as The Humans, Dinolympics is the Americanised title of this original puzzle game, developed by Imagitech Design and released on the Atari Lynx in 1992.
