Atari Lynx ElectroCop

handheld video game

The Atari Lynx handheld system was released in the fall of 1989, one month after the release of Nintendo's Game Boy. Atari's system was technologically superior; it was the first handheld with a high resolution color display and ambidextrous controls. However, the Game Boy was less expensive, more compact and had a number of popular games, such as the iconic game Tetris. Atari sold only 2 million Lynx systems, compared to Nintendo's Game Boy which sold more than 100 million units worldwide and was the start of a successful line of Game Boy systems.
