Atari Lynx

The Atari Lynx is Atari's only handheld game console, and the first such machine with a colour display. The system is notable for its forward-looking features, advanced graphics, and ambidextrous format. The Lynx was released in 1989, the same year as Nintendo's (monochromatic) Game Boy.

The Atari Lynx had several innovative features including it being the first colour handheld, with a backlit display, a switchable right-handed/left-handed (upside down) configuration, and the ability to network with up to 17 other units via its "ComLynx" system (though most games would network eight or fewer players).

The Lynx was also the first gaming console with hardware support for zooming/distortion of sprites, allowing fast pseudo-3D games with unrivalled quality at the time and a capacity for drawing filled polygons with limited CPU intervention.
