what i meant by "scans" were the screen images i've seen on the duranik site. also,
the ones i've seen on atari age.
i'm viewing these images on my laptop/note-
book pc with a 13.3 inch active matrix screen
from the present day. a bit better than a 3.5
inch passive matrix screen like the lynx had
in 1989 and through the life of it while the
folks at atari manufactured it.
the lynx can do some nice imagery on it,even
with a passive matrix screen that is rather on the limited side of technology anymore.it
thrilled me with the stuff i saw it could do
back in 1989! alpine games looks to show that
it still can pack some real graphic punch on
that 3.5 inch screen.
i was only asking if the images looked as
good on a lynx unit itself. my pc screen is
making them look very good on the surface.it
is not always the case when you see the stuff
on the real console or handheld unit.promo
scans and pics are not always the stuff we
actually receive with a finished game--been
my experience anyway.--the lynxer

Neigther will we in Germany.
Most of the ppl who had seen it on a real lynx are the german developers and the ppl attending the last jagfest in germany because matthias showed the (full playable) beta version there. (not only showed... he let ppl even play it)

I do not understand what you mean by "scans"?
The pictures on www.duranik.com are screenshots from the real game. I dunnot know how they made them, but i guess with handy.

as i am a friend of the developers, this would be a very subjective perspective...
so you have to wait until the first cartridges are shipped and an independent observer will be available ;-)
