Here is something really cool for the Lynx.  This is a new demo that was presented at the Nordlicht 2016 party.  This was posted by Heaven/TQA over at Atari Age.  Enjoy!

Cool demo and very impressive.

Impressive demo! Reminds me of old Amiga demos, and being related to the Amiga it's easy to see why!

Yes, it is indeed really cool.  I need to download the binary to see if I can run it using the Lynx SD Cart!

Just read this Blog post from The Grand Emperor's Retro Video Gaming Blog on the Atari Lynx and wanted to share it.  I think he did better on this one than on the Jaguar one:  System Saturdays - Getting to Know the Atari Lynx:)

Here are two reviews for the Lynx that are a bit different in what's covered and in the general feeling regarding the system...

Check out this article from Ausretrogamer:  Atari Lynx: The Games That Never Were.  So many missed opportunities.

I watched these videos of a Lynx I being restored and was impressed with the work done but I also found fascinating all the explanations of the innards of the system.  There is even some info about the differences between the I and II models.  Check these out...
