Handy PSP is an emulator of Atari Lynx, an 8/16-bit handheld game console that was released by Atari Corporation in September 1989.

This is a port of the Handy emulator to the Sony PlayStation Portable platform, written in C and C++ and uses GU (Graphical Utility toolkit) for rendering by Akop Karapetyan (aka Uberjack).

Known issues

Sound isn’t perfect, in some games, it skips or pops. After a week of tweaking the sound code, it is still unclear if this is due the port, or the emulator. The answer most likely lies somewhere in-between.
