Mostly played Klax on my Atari Lynx. Very solid conversion. Bit of California Games too.
I have been saying for years that I'm going to sell my small Lynx collection but I just can't.
Rampart on the Lynx is my favorite version of the game. I said, well maybe there are better versions of Rampart on other portable consoles. There aren't. Not even the arcade emulated on the PSP is as fun as the Lynx version to me, altough it is close.
Graphics are very impressive for the time, wide-screen display. Not even the Genesis had scaling effects like the Lynx did back in the era. But the audio is inferior to the original Gameboy. Naturally that amplied screenshots on an emulator lock blocky, but on the screen they look good.
My problem with the Lynx is that most games are not that good. Some are good, no doubt, but a lot of the library I have tried is just average or worse. Some impressive graphic demos but not that fun. Electrocop is very impressive, in terms of graphics nothing got close to it until the Gameboy Advance came out. The Afterburner clone is also impressive (was it called Blue Lightning?) but it's not fun. The Gauntlet game is one of the worst games I have ever played in my life.
I'm still missing Ninja Gaiden and Dracula. Ninja Gaiden is the only port to a console of the original arcade game, right? And Dracula is an adventure game that uses scaling and a limited sepia color pallete for effects.
I have a lynx with stun runner, blue lightning, shadow of the beast, and some pinball game. It's alright. I want more games to play on the thing but I want something with substance. Even though I normally can't stand the game, SotB is my most played game on the system just because it's a long game. I've considered Ninja Gaiden 3, but I have no idea what else to look for.
EDIT: Oh, I also have Zarlor Mercenary.

I just rebought an Atari Lynx model 2 recently with a few games (I had a model 1 years ago). The model 2 is so slick looking with the Atari brand on the front as well as the comfy handholds on the back left and right.
APB was a good port for it and one of my favorite arcade games but its missing a few things. There are no continues and whoever programmed it didn't put enough violaters (people breaking the law) roaming the streets, making it abit difficult. The lynx version is actually a superior port to the Midway Aracde treasures version which came out for gamecube since the timeclock on that runs way too fast.
Paperboy is pretty fun on it also. Stun Runner is arcade exact and incredible.
I just sold a Lynx a few weeks back. It's a ok handheld my only problem with it is you can barely see anything on the screen. It's worse then gamegear.
