    The first color handheld console, and a victim of overreaching.

    The Lynx was released in 1989, with specs similar to a TurboGrafx-16, far beyond Nintendo's Game Boy. Its screen was not only color like the later Game Gear, but backlit. However, the Lynx cost twice as much as a Game Boy and ate six AA batteries in four hours. The Game Boy won hands down. Atari re-released the Lynx with a lower price and a much smaller size, but to no avail.
