Really great version of KLAX.
Ms. PacMan is quite good.
Paperboy is excellent.

Actually, the Lynx has got a lot of great games: I think that it has one of the highest ratios of good to bad games of any system.  Out of the 100+ games released for it, there are really very few I don't enjoy playing.

Great shout, Steel Talons is an absolutely superb conversion of the arcade game and one that should definitely be talked about more often. Not just because it's a cracking game but also because it's an amazing technical achievement, to fit a state of the art 3D coin-op into a handheld and pull it off is amazing. It really makes the most out of the Lynx's custom hardware.

This too, I have been saying this for a long time. I don't think there is a system out there with a better quality good/bad ratio in its library. I can honestly only name 5 bad Lynx games and a couple of them are more average than down right bad.

I think the other system with an excellent good to bad game ratio is the Atari 5200.  It is as good as the Lynx when it comes to that.  Both are Atari systems so the "competition" stays in the family.  ;)

I think Klax on this is the best version of the game personally speaking..

The Lynx itself is probably underappreciated.

Klax is an awesome game on the Lynx.  Definitely one of the top titles for the system to own.

Wasn't there word of a company somewhere making a port of the jaguar fighting game ultra vortec for this system?

I remember hearing about that too. I think it was Songbird who was doing it but I don't know what happened with the project.

As far as I know, it has not moved forward.
