Arcade to Lynx - The Atari Times
Comparing the arcade to the Lynx versions
by Gregory D. GeorgeMarch 12, 2007
As a loyal Atararian it is my shame that I don't own Atari's awesome little handheld. This spread makes that seem even more painful. You notice the differences; I'm just amazed how great those conversions look on a handheld that is 15 or so years old.
Ahhhh, no biggie, I don't have one either ;) However, does the Lynx also have a 'regular' port of Battlezone included in the cartridge? Because I see it's got some extras on the screen: shield, ammo, fuel...
Battlezone 2000 (or Plus mode as I call it) is basically the same as the arcade. The only real difference (I can tell) is the ability to select different tanks. But the gameplay itself is identical.
Now, the hidden game is a different matter entirely. It's totally different from any Battlezone game you'd expect.
Which is why I own a Lynx... :)
Forgot about the hidden game! It's time to power up the Lynx!
Great job! I love my Lynx too!
BTW after looking at the Xybots screen shot I got a great idea!
That game would totally work great on the nintendo DS!
It depends on the game. Paperboy and Rygar make the Lynx look magical. Then games like Hard Drivin' wonder about humanity. Such pain in that game...
My nephew showed off his DS to me and I happened to have my Lynx (owned since new) close. After a round of Zarlor, I told him that handheld was as old as he was... little punk!!
Still have it... I know it used up batteries but I was using rechargable batteries back there.. hee hee... other way is to use adapt plug. I never forget when one girl thought Lynx wasn't same as Sega until I flashed it to her. She was surprised. So don't bad label Lynx.
