Atari Lynx 2 Portable Handheld Video Game System

Product Description

World's First Portable Color Entertainment System

Imported from USA

In 1989, Atari released a second version of the Lynx with a number of improvements including an extra hour of battery
life, a sharper LCD screen, a button to switch off the backlight (to save on battery power when games are paused), a
Power LED (it blinked when the battery was low) and rubber grips on the back, all encased in a smaller more
rectangle-looking black casing. The Lynx II was backward-compatible with all Lynx games and was later advertised as
being able to communicate directly with the upcoming 64-bit Jaguar.
