Odynexus, Journey to Ithaca

Odynexus is a brand new shoot'em up for the Atari Lynx, featuring fantastic pixelart, huge bosses, swarm of terrific ennemies and frenetic arcade action! 

You are Odynexus, the legendary space warrior who defeated the Electrogods and conquered Trox, their capital city. Now after all these years, the time has finally come to fly back to Itanika, your home, and to Penelope, your wife. But the Electrogods are not dead yet... Irritated by this unexpected defeat, they are now summoning their most powerful machines... the Mechatitans!!!

The game was originally submitted at Silly Venture 2019, where it placed third in the Atari Lynx competition. The prototype has been reworked into a fully polished game, that will get a physical release later this year (yes in 2022!)

In the meantime we're releasing the demo version for free, so please enjoy it and give us some feedback! The demo features:

  • the first 2 levels
  • multiple enemies and giant bosses
  • huge pixelart world
  • original music by Drozerix
  • hi-score eeprom saving

Please visit the itch.io page of Agradeneu, the co-creator of Odynexus: https://anderlex.itch.io and discover another gem for your Atari Jaguar!

You can play the demo directly in your browser at AtariGamer.com: click here!

Any news? Got a Retroid that's waiting for this. :)


Glad you ask because an announcement is coming pretty soon! Just tweaking last gameplay details :)



I’d take either format! But I’d prefer a ROM of the finished game. The demo is pretty fun so far!

Happy you like it! Game is pretty much finished with much more content, and we just need to put some little extra effort to wrap it up :)

Great news on the digital version, I am very keen to play this:  The Lynx needs some love.

And we love it too, there is so much the console can still show today :)

I just wanted to say that this game is fantastic! As high quality as an official Lynx title. Really looking forward to the full release (hopefully digital).

Thanks for your comment... and yes there wil be a digital version!

Thank you! :-)

is this game still in the making or as it been cancelled ? cheers

It's coming along very nicely, we're pretty close to finishing it - just need balancing ;)

That is great news, Thank you for letting me know,  look forward to purchasing your awesome game on release day and excellent work :)

Thanks :)

Still in the making, BETA  hopefully soon. Graphics assets are finished. Thanks for caring!

very good shoot em up, love the pixel retro graphics and great gameplay, so lookIng forward to purchasing the full release of this awesome game...Excellent work...Both thumbs UP!!


So happy to see the release of our Lynx collaboration. Thanks for this excellent website for the game. Great screenshots and GIFs!

Same here! Sadly there is no way to share a creator page between all its creators, but I added a link to your itch.io space so that more people discover Gravitic Mines ;)

Great to see an update

And it's just the beginning! Please Mark feel free to update your emulator with this free demo instead of the SV one, it's similar in content but it's way more polished :)

Thanks! I was just about to email you about that ;-)

Great work! My only feedback is that the boss battle (at least the first one) is a bit too quick.

Thanks! The demo is deliberately easy so that people get a chance to experience it without frustration. The final game will have different difficulty levels.

Awesome! I look forward to seeing the final version. Thanks for helping keep the Atari scene kicking!
