Early 90s Angry Birds Concept Art

What would Angry Birds look like if it was released 20 years ago, during the golden age of side-scrolling platformers like Mario? Well, probably a lot like this.

Fake screenshots spoofing the highly addictive mobile game ‘Angry Birds’ by Rovio Mobile Ltd. As a physics-based game, Angry Birds is similar to those well worn ’90s games Worms and Lemmings, and lends itself well to a retro reimaging with blocky pixels.

Personally, I find the retro pixelated style very appealing, and would absolutely love to see an Angry Birds mod that could make this concept a reality. Check out the source for the full set, it’s beautiful.
