Assembloids - Fast-paced reaction puzzle game out now for the Atari Lynx

Atari Lynx gamers you may be interested in this news update, as we've just been given the heads up by a good friend of ours, that the fast paced action reaction puzzle game of ' Assembloids ', which appeared on the Atari 2600 made by Martin Wendt restricted to just 4k, has now made an appearance on the Atari Lynx! Yes now it's the time of the Atari Lynx to experience this enjoyable game, as thanks to a heads up from Martin, we've been told you can now download Assembloids completely free today as a final ROM.

According to the information we were sent. Assembloids was programmed by Martin 'enthusi' Wendt, graphics by Oliver 'v3to' Lindau and Musik & Sound b Kamil 'Jammer' Wolnikowski, as a 30th birthday contribution to the Lynx game competition. If that's not all, Assembloids is based on a concept by Photonstorm, and graphics and dimensions are designed to make the game playable on real hardware, including original LCDs as well as smartphone emulators.

Assembloids is based on Assembloids 2600 which Martin coded for the Atari 2600 as well as Assembloids 2013 which Martin coded for the Commodore 64. Assembloids 2013 itself is a port of the Flash game "Quartet" by Photon Storm. In this game you must complete the puzzles by making a complete face and the number of points depends on the matching of colors for your completed face.
