The Atari Lynx, released in 1989, was the first color screen handheld. It was a high end device with advanced graphics for its time, and a color LCD screen, but its higher price made it difficult for the Lynx to compete. It achieved moderate success shortly after its release but the Game Boy, which was released during the same year, dominated the handheld gaming market. Although the Lynx was a more capable device than the Game Boy, it was more expensive, and less attractive to game developers. In 1991 Atari launched a redesigned version of the Lynx (known internally as the Lynx II) which was more compact and power efficient, along with other minor changes.
