The Lynx HSC has been on a break for awhile.
Had a request for this game recently.
Some gameplay footage.

Are we allowed to use hints? My score shows 2 hints, but I didn't actually use them. I kept hitting the wrong buttons on the controller.

Shanghai (Dragon) - 108 / 22:03

Shanghai (Dragon) - 112 / 15:34

 

My first pass.  This game gives me a headache.  Yet strangely addicting...

 

Getting slightly better; i'm going to need a Shanghai training montage!

I would have loved this game in 1989.  I had a Lynx but only one game and just couldn't find any damn games!  I never saw another Lynx game or another Lynx until like 20 yrs later. 

 

To this day I don't even remember how I got that Lynx or what happened to it.  I probably got so sick of having no good games I just ditched it.  Either that or my mom sold it.
