Yastuna vol. 2 is a freeware compilation of Lynx games to be used with an Atari Lynx emulator.
I released this compilation in 2007 and many physical release have been done since.
You buy here the first release by the author, as a Flash on Demand. You will get the cartridge alone, with a professionnally printed sticker (same quality than official Yastuna Games releases). The games are excatly the same than previous releases, so if you already have an edition of The Space Incident, there is no real need to buy this one, apart supporting the author.
The ROM is still available for free here :
Inspired by Lunar Lockout, the classic from Binary Arts / Think Fun. 60 levels of increasing difficulty. The game includes a level editor, in order to create and play to your own levels. With an easy to use code system, you will be able to distribute to your friends or over Internet your best levels. A tutorial is included, in order to learn how to play to Space Lock.

Between 2 space combat, why not going relaxing into discotheque ? A dance game on Lynx, with nice musics from Sampo. In order to be able to go to next level, you must score at least 80%.
Ehm, no, there is no dance pad for Lynx, AFAIK ;)
