Atari Lynx Emulation

In order to test your ROMs you can use emulation. It's quick and easy to set up and debug/test your games in an emulator before testing them out on real hardware. For a comprehensive list of Atari Lynx emulators please refer to this page over at Atari Gamer.

All (mature) lynx emulators, even if embedded into other products, are based on the “handy” emulator code by K.W.. Development was stoped years ago, since then there is no organized bug fixing nor development ongoing. Several (even commercial) emulators use nowadays the handy core from retroarch.
