  1. My favorite 5 would be (in no particular order) 1. California Games (of course) 2. Road Blasters (near perfect arcade translation) 3. Ninja Gaiden (nothing like the NES or NGIII for lynx) 4. Rampage (it's just fun) 5. Rygar or Xenophobe
  2. congrats on joining the "lynx club". If you want to beat some of the longer games you might want to get an AC adapter. modern NiMH batteries last a while if all 6 are fully charged, but I would recommend looking for an AC adapter that matches the original specs. My lynx II (and my original lynx) both broke right where the ac adpater plugs in, so I only can play with batteries, but not a big deal nowadays. some games i highly recommend California Games (best game the lynx has to offer IMO) stun runner lemmings desert strike chips challenge steel talons road blasters ninja gaiden (not like the nes version, its an arcade port) Rampage Rampart Warbirds xenophobe
  3. yeah I saw that episode. some punk kid at a "make-out party" or something. BEST scene on that stupid show EVER. lol
  4. I've owned the Lynx 1 and the Lynx II. I had the Lynx I first ( got it brand new in 1992, but we sent it to Atari for repairs, and they sent me back a Lynx II in like 1994). I liked the Lynx 1 because the speaker was a little louder and the game was enclosed in the door on the side. But the feature on the Lynx II that lets you turn off the screen is really nice. Also, the buttons feel more sturdy, the orange power light is helpful, and the paint and overall build quality is higher quality on the Lynx II. I agree that the Lynx I does look like a prototype compared to the Lynx II (or any other handheld really). Until i got a Gameboy Advanced SP, i have always felt the Lynx (I or II) was the best handheld console u could buy.
  5. nice. i never heard of this store. I might just have to order some stuff from them! Thanks guys!
  6. You played your Lynx in the hallway at your HIGHSCHOOL?!? Wow, and I thought I was nerdy in high school! --Wookie I'm totally jealous. I didnt get Warbirds til like 3 years ago, wish I would have bought it in HS. I would have convinced one of my friends to get a lynx and that game too. That game is ok against the cpu opponents, but I can imagine it's gotta be one of the best multi-player portable games.
  7. That's why I surf instead. --Wookie I like to play both games back and forth really. My best score on BMX is now up to 885 (up from 777) but I cant beat my high score of 10500 on surfing. I can get 9000+ on a regular basis in surfing, but the 10k mark was really tough to break. BMX is much more complicated than surfing, and I just hate when i get a score of 700+ and know i can do so much better on bmx. Surfing is simple, but its still tough to get really high scores. Halfpipe and Footbag are just ok. but I really can do without them both. edit: and do you guys play with a Lynx 1 or 2? I have a model 2 and sometimes i think i remember the original lynx fitting my hands better. I had a lynx1, but I replaced it with my lynx2 years and years ago.
  8. yeah i didnt know sears had it either. i think i got my lynx at babbages too. Toys R US is the only other store that i saw had a lynx or lynx games brand new. seeing that makes me want to get a Lynx Model 1. I have a Model 2, but i remember the Model 1 fit my hands better.
  9. on the atari lynx version? r u sure? I can get in the 700s on a good run. I think you're thinking of a different game. If U actually CAN get over 900, post a screen shot. I doubt that ONLY the score for BMX is laughable, I've had the game since 1992, so i'm pretty sure that ALL the high scores on TG are good. Yes, I can score over 3000. The back to front flips and the double front flips are worth a fortune. Not only that, you get a bigger bonus the faster you can cross the finish line. I mean, you should be able to score 900 just for doing regular flips on all the berms and crossing the finish line. I can't just turn the game on and do it though, it takes alot of work because the crazy front flips aren't guaranteed each try. yeah i know how to score points. I just think you havent played it in a while and have your scale WAY off. I would bet some BIG $$$ that you couldnt produce a score of over 900 in 3 months. and yeah I know the front flip off the big jump is hit or miss. I dont ALWAYS have a great score, but dude, the TG score is just not off by THAT much. but thats the internet for u..... False logic. Just because you can't do something, does not make that a universal truth. People have scored more than 900 on the lynx high score thread for CG. Twin Galaxies is not GOD. I just wont believe YOU can actually do it on a Lynx (not handy or other emulator) til i see a screen shot. I've had hard enough time getting over 700 that i find it very hard to believe u can get 3000. Thats all im saying. I know that somebody has got over 900, but most people that have done it are using an emulator of some sort. I dont need a video, but a simple photo of your lynx screen would be proof and I'd say im sorry for doubting u.

  12. Yeah I'd really love to try to find a way to beat that record. I've barely surpased 10k once, and sometimes I can get like 8k or 9k, but its tough. To get that record you probably have to get a quad every time and spend almost no time picking up speed. sometimes i just do the "ride the pelican" for fun. we'll have to think of some good Surfing challenges. Like the most unreal360s in one game, or the longest airtime (use a stopwatch and count how long your surfer stays airborne). California games is BY FAR the best portable game for any handheld console. Super Mario for GBA is pretty close, but not quite. I cant beat any of the records on Twin Galaxies, but of them all id say i have got the closest on BMX. One of these days I'll get a good video camera and push to beat some of those scores. I used to keep track and take photos, but i dont know where all that stuff went.
  13. Best deals would be : Electrocop $1.00 Xenophobe $1.00 Warbirds $4.00 i think Steel Talons $4.00 i think thats about it. the store i got them at Usually doesn't have lynx games (who does?), but once in a while i see a lynx game or 2, if they are good I've bought them. and for $1, how can i resist (unless i already have the game) WORST lynx deal -> Batman Returns NEW back in 1993 or something $30 i think...........hate the game still. could have been so great with Continues, lives, or something. Why didn't they test the game? afraid they couldn't sell it fast enough?
  14. I recommend the LynxII if you will be using headphones (stereo sound) and the fact that you can pause the game and turn off the screen (no games have a save feature, some have passwords). games i recommend California Games (no lynx is complete without this game, a MUST have) Ninja Gaiden (like the arcade version, not nes) Road Blasters Steel Talons Chips Challenge Warbirds Blue Lightning Rampage Rampart Lemmings (if u can find, very expensive usually) Desert Strike (also hard to find, and pricey)
