YEAH MAN!  Welcome to an exclusive club!  My advice is to start with California Games, as that was the pack-in game originally.  You're gonna have some fun!

I already had Chips Challenge here waiting for a system. Such a fun game. I do plan to see out as many titles as I can. Cali Games is the only other game I have ever played on the system back when it cam out.

Dude that is WILD that you're starting with Chip's Challenge and California Games, those were my first two Atari Lynx games too!! That first summer I went all summer with just those two games. Chip's Challenge was a gift to me, and one that I really came to appreciate. When I was saving up for the Lynx, looking at the pictures and screenshots in the Sears catalog and browsing games at Toys R Us, Chip's Challenge didn't really stand out much to me. When I received it as a gift, it was rare for me to receive a video game present and I really, really appreciated it and wanted to make the most out of it. I gave Chip's Challenge a chance and it turned out to be an amazing puzzle game, one of my absolute most loved games of all time. I love the graphics, the chip tunes and sound, I love that the game forces you to think and find your way through these mazes, and I really appreciate that there's a story to the game. It's not just Tetris, you've got to get the girl! You're in for a real treat @Atari Creep

I've been wanting to do Chip's Challenge in High Score Squad for years, but it's one of those "password games" where you can enter a code to go to the next level. Maybe now is a good time to figure out how to do Chip's Challenge as a High Score contest..

High Score for a specific level?

You might be able to correct some of the screen issues by recapping it as it likely needs it anyway. But yes eventually you will want a McWill in that thing. It is a pretty excellent handheld and I'm sorry I didn't pick one up when they were new back in the day. I went the Game gear route instead during that time. But I don't regret that decision either!

I loved the Game Gear.  Slider was a fun GG game!  I had Sonic 2 as well. Sadly GG and Lynx were in the same boat when it came to battery life.  GG and Lynx sucked on battery power.

The original Sonic the Hedgehog on GameGear is probably my favorite Sonic game to be honest.

Possibly a single life run. Or just honor system. I'll work something out. 

That reminds me of one of my favorite 90s SNL skits. Norm McDonald plays a long reigning champion on an honor system based Bible game show. 😄

We figured out that if you keep getting killed on a level it will ask if you want to skip it. If you say yes (or no I will confirm that shortly.) it will give ya a total score before moving on. So it's possible to record a score. If we do a level run codes could be used to advance unfairly.
