It is believed to be as early as 1985 when the idea for the world's first
colour handheld portable console came about. By 1987, engineers at Epyx,
who conceived the idea, had named the system "Handy". Two of these
engineers, Dave Needle and R.J. Mical, were also members of the original
Amiga design team.

The new system was first shown to industry insiders at Winter CES in
January 1989. After running into some financial problems, Epyx could not
produce the system on their own and so they decided to enlist the help of
another company. Invitations were sent to numerous companies in the hopes
of getting a partnership to produce the system. One of these companies was
Nintendo, who passed. Atari was also sent an invitation and, needing a way
to re-enter the market, they accepted. An agreement was reached where Atari
would produce and market the system while Epyx would take care of software

The system was again shown at CES, this time in the Summer of 1989, and
with the name "Atari Portable Color Entertainment System", which was later
changed to "Lynx". Also announced in the same year was the Nintendo GameBoy
which would create tough competition for the Lynx, even though the Lynx was
more powerful and had a backlit colour screen. The GameBoy only had a black
& white screen, however, it was lighter, smaller and used less battery
But probably the main edge that the GameBoy had over the Lynx was the price.
The GameBoy was announced at a price of US$109 while the Lynx was US$90 more
at US$199. Both systems were released by the end of the year, in time for
Christmas. Due to the larger quantities of GameBoy consoles produced, the
system was more readily available, while the Lynx only had limited
quantities and often sold out, meaning Atari lost many potential customers.
As a result, the GameBoy became the more popular choice over the holiday

Due to the lack of third party development for the Lynx, sales were never
spectacular, even in 1990. The Lynx lacked killer apps like the many found
on the GameBoy. 1991's sales were slightly better than the previous year due
to a new marketing campaign and the release of the Lynx II, which was
smaller, cheaper and more energy efficient (Lynx II also had a feature which
would make the screen turn off to conserve power if a game was paused for a
certain length of time). However, the release of the Sega Game Gear in May
meant more competition for the Lynx. It also meant that the Lynx was no
longer the only colour portable on the market.

The Lynx was often mistaken for a 16-bit system. It's actually more like a
PC Engine/Turbo Grafx 16. It does not have a 16-bit main CPU like you'd find
in true 16-bit consoles like Sega Mega Drive/Genesis or Nintendo Super
NES/Super Famicom, however, it does have other 16-bit co-processors, which
you won't find in other 8-bit systems (like Nintendo Entertainment
System/Famicom or Sega Master System/SG-1000 Mark III, or a more appropriate
comparison may be the Nintendo GameBoy or Sega Game Gear). Another thing to
note about the Lynx is its capability of being played upside down. There are
two sets of A and B buttons so you may turn the system around to use the
controls on opposite hands. The screen display can be flipped the other way
around at the touch of a button.

Eventually, Lynx was pushed out of the picture as the GameBoy gained more
and more dominance, being followed distantly by Sega's Game Gear. The system
had great potential and some great games (apart from the lack of killer
apps) including some excellent arcade translations. Unfortunately though,
the Lynx came at the wrong time as the much wealthier Nintendo had more
money to spend on producing and marketing their system as well as the
credibility to gain plenty of third part support thanks to the success of
the NES.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this site, and thus the world, a better place.
We have some fresh ideas of where to go next. We also want to hear yours!

Update: We are working on an idea which would archive every single retro title while benefitting the publishers! Hope to get a working prototype released soon. It's a long shot and all depends on these companies going for it - But it's worth a try. Submit your suggestions
