Guess it depends on which one you love and/or play more. I think both are expensive to mod but equally worth it since it breathes new life into the machine entirely. Seeing some pictures online, I can't help but feel the Lynx I has a better LCD screen, though I can't say for sure since I've never owned one personally.

Must have titles for Lynx!

Here we go:

Blue Lightning
Chequered Flag
Robotron 2084
Ninja Gaiden
Zaku with one big disadvantage: It's hard to find and everything else than cheap!

There are many more excellent titles, but this selection should help to build a fine collection.

No i bought the lynx from a local game shop after i traded in $100 worth of my junk. Ive looked into doing the mcwill mod, but cost too much to do. If i do the mod im torn between doing it to my lynx or my game gear??

Having done the Lynx mod myself it wasn't that bad. It was probably more time consuming to recap it, remove the stuff you don't need for the backlighting, and replacing the regulator and diode for the power circuit area to make sure that wouldn't be a failure point anytime soon. But the GG is a different story. There is quite a few SMD parts that have to be removed, and a few SMD parts to be added back in. I do have the kit for my GG but haven't struck up enough courage to tackle it yet. Thinking maybe this weekend, but no these mods aren't for the beginner or faint of heart.

My must haves:

Super Asteroids/Missile Command
Chips Challenge
STUN Runner
Crystal Mines II
Battlezone 2000

Also, I have the McWill mod and it is excellent. It truly makes a huge difference and breathes new life into the machine. Another great addition is the RetroHQ SD card by SainT. You could just get that and call it a day if you don't want a physical collection.

If you do want a physical collection, the GOAT Store has some great prices on the most common titles (NIB). I've had great luck with them vs. eBay or forums.

If you can contact the author to see if about getting one...


I highly recommend getting the home-brew "Weltenschlächter" from Luch soft!

My Lynx II appears to be void of lines but does seem a bit faded. Then again I always thought they did. I have Batman Returns. Fun game but very tough. It looks like a Genesis game.

Just so I know what is bad about Hard Drivin'? I loved the arcade.
