Atari Gamer articles

Recommended Posts

Just emailed over to you/Atarimania last of my odds n sods stuff.

 

Honestly couldn't think what i had already sent, but there's some misc info on how Epyx were struggling before Atari nought Lynx off them..Some misc lost game info..stuff on Lynx in Japan etc.

 

I did get a message from the Lynx developer, work and life been hectic, he hopes to answer my Q's this week.

 

Other than that?

 

Think you guys have had everything from mag scans to misc info.

 

GTW Project will have the meat and that's not expected till 2019...

 

So i can now simply enjoy the sterling work other people are doing, talking about Lynx.

Cheers! There's more planned, trying to reach out to some artists too. Might have to quiz you about RRR some time as well! :D

Please, please do an interview with the “collator” of Lynx Invades Japan. I still can’t believe I bought that one. :)

 

Hmm...perhaps a double feature with “Bitchy”?

Are you talking about this demo? https://atarigamer.com/lynx/game/Slideshow256/254239099

I didn't think there was a physical release of it, where did you get it from? I imagine it would have been someone just making a cart from the freely available rom?

 

Bitchy is by rygar from these forums, it's a simple puzzle game...not sure what I could really ask about it!

There is a definite lack of adult oriented titles for the Lynx though, maybe 2019 will see some releases in that space :-o

Lynx Invades Japan popped up enigmatically on eBay in early 2013 with no fanfare...and disappeared equally mysteriously a few months later. It was sold in a nice plastic case, so someone made the effort to make this marketable.

 

And I’d love to hear the backkstory behind Bitchy even if the game itself has limited appeal. :)

The back story is here on the forums - http://atariage.com/forums/topic/144677-new-lynx-game/

Rygar made 20 copies of the game on physical cart, 15 of them were given away as a part of a competition. As far as I can tell no ROM was released.

 

Hope that answers it for you :-D

 

P.S. The game info page has a bunch of details about the game - https://atarigamer.com/lynx/game/Bitchy/685345861.

I've managed to collect some photos from another member who was it. It's a nice collector's piece but as a game itself...well it's just a puzzle game.

Zaku Puzzle is very much along the same lines - https://atarigamer.com/lynx/game/ZakuPuzzle/433872365

I went through your website again the other day, gathering all Lynx information to one place like this "should have been done long ago", so I'm really happy that you've gone and done it! :) Also your articles are fun and varying :thumbsup:

 

Btw. I tried out 'The Grail of the Lava Kingdom' online in the 'Lynx Game Arcade', I was quite happy to find a Lynx homebrew that I hadn't heard about before! Also grime 6502 in the news section was news for me!

Thanks! I'm always looking for people to contribute news and information too, so if anyone wants to write an article or just send in news or anything else, they are more than welcome to! :D

 

I'm actually working on a new section just for discovering home brew games, it will be launched soon!

Have you figured out how to fight off those monsters in Lava Kingdom? Every time they get me, I can run away for a while, but eventually they catch up. Grime 6502 looks like it will be interesting...completely open source too!

I only tried to run away, didn't seem to work out too well! :grin:
