The Atari Lynx

The scoop
The Lynx was Atari's second attempt at a handheld gaming console. Granted the first was Touch Me, a Simon Says style game released in 1978 but can you really compare the two? The Lynx was also the first color portable gaming system. The system didn't last too long...maybe it was the cost, maybe it was the size. You're not going to fit this one in your pocket. Some cool game though and the color screen looked pretty good.
