Platform: Atari Lynx
Release Date: Cancelled
Genre: First Person Shooter
Publisher: Atari
Developer: Rebellion

Description

A long-rumoured game release for the Atari Lynx, this FPS was due to follow the success of the Jaguar game of the same title. Based on the Dark Horse Comics cross-over, the game let you play as an alien, predator, or human soldier. The game was never officially announced, but was strongly rumoured, and although the system ran out of steam before the game could be released, test cartridge versions of the game in early development were later unearthed by Atari fans. Test cartridges can be bought on Ebay for the actual handheld and a test rom is also available to download from websites online.

Why It Was Cancelled

According to many sources, the game was 85% complete when it was cancelled. The reason it was cancelled is because Atari abandoned the Lynx to concentrate on the Atari Jaguar. If Atari hadn’t have cancelled it, Alien vs Predator would probably have gone on to be the best game for the Atari Lynx.
