Switchblade II - First Atari Lynx Hack

26 January 2018 9:42PM EST - Update by Psyklax

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Switchblade II is a platform game, originally released on the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST, with a cut-down port for the Atari Lynx, and now there’s a hack for it. The hack itself is quite simple - giving you the ability to continue from where you died, and giving you only one life at the start as a form of balance - but it’s notable for two reasons.

It’s the very first hack for the Atari Lynx on this site, and secondly, it was done without any debugging tools, save a memory viewer. The author identified the assembly instructions due to their similarity to other systems like the NES, and made educated guesses to achieve the desired effect.

It’s a game that many won’t be aware of, but now that this hack makes it somewhat easier to play, why not give it a try?
