Very good to see a Lynx game released nowadays :)

That must be the most commonly used phrase on the planet Earth right now: "due to the coronavirus". It really does affect everything when it affects retrogaming 😬

They are very smooth.  No jitter to worry about!

OK you've tempted me- how much do they cost?

What are the Atari pro paddles like? I'd love to get paddles that solved the jitter problem

They had a really good first day but since then there's only been a couple new pledges. They're going to have to really get the word out.

But I do wonder how many people have that kind of money! It's for people with more money than sense. I just couldn't justify spending that kind of cash over a game, but some people obviously do!

Looks light years ahead of the 1979 game, which was fun in its own way too.

The one thing I'm really pleased about with this release is that its a genuine Coleco title and not a super game module cartridge that most people will not be able to play on the original hardware. Now if only they could release the rom... 😁

Similar but no longer available at a reasonable price.  A Harmony cart is much easier to use, though, as you just put an SD card with the games and it's ready.  I believe SainT may have decided to work on one for the system once he's done with his sales for the Jaguar SD cart.

I also seem to remember it had problems playing games like Commando with the added sound chip, but my memory is fuzzy. I should have kept it anyway. The more I read about the 7800, the more interesting it seems, especially with the homebrew that's been coming out these last few years.

Would really like a 7800 version of the Harmony - the 7800 homebrew scene over at atariage is creating some really great titles.

Didn't Chad Schells Cuttle Cart II act like a Harmony cart? It came out many years ago and allowed you to upload all your 7800 and 2600 games onto the cart to be played on a real 7800. And I bloody well had one!! Why on earth did I get rid of it... 😑

Excellent. The colecovision is still making a lot of noise and I'm particularly pleased that games are coming out that still work on the original unexpanded machine like this one :)

Hi - I've tried it again on my laptop and it doesn't seem possible to download. It says "The publisher chose not to allow downloads for this publication"

Another PDF of old mag scans and reviews, this time for the old Atari Lynx, enjoy.
Brilliant stuff😎 But can you download it and open offline? I download it but I can't open it.

Fair enough heh heh I suppose we've all got our prejudices; just look at the signature on my posts 😁 Maybe I'm worried about the Americanisation of history,  and even people in the UK now talking about the Atari being followed by Sega and Nintendo when that didn't happen here. But he's an American so if he wants to slag UK stuff off, that's up to him!😎
