    Did you ever hook up two Lynx and play it multiplayer? Pretty awesome co-op and versus.

    Red Baron with linked-up Lynx was also great.
    look here, upon a sig graveyard.

    No, I never did but I always wanted to! Imagine an 8-player co-op Metroid-style game in 1990. That's what Slime World was.

    You mean Warbirds? Always wanted to try versus on that one, too. I was the only kid on the block with a Lynx

  3. You guys realize the old Atari is not this iteration of Atari.

    Exactly. Look at what Konami and Capcom have become and then add two deaths and resuscitations. That's who is making this.

    I just may do that.

    We're like 4 different versions of Atari's deep, or maybe it's 5? I've lost count.

  7. I can't imagine any scenario where this thing isn't a flop, but I would probably be interested if they pack in some decent paddle controllers and an new Warlords game.

  8. This thing would entirely justify its existence by simply letting people play superior 5200 ports with better controller options than the 5200 actually got. 5200 Kaboom and Super Breakout with a proper paddle controller would be manna from heaven.

    (Put out a massive trac-ball controller like the 5200's though. That thing made for some sweet Centipede.)

    My brother and I had one and our best friend had one, so we got to battle in some two player slime world on long car trips. Really fun. Yeah co-op was cool. Versus was like Towerfall, with multiple rooms and your own screen, in the 1990s. Sleeve, we just made this sound like the best game ever made.

    Atari 800 computer versions of both of those games support paddles. Both are very similar to the 5200 versions.
