Video Game Mashup #2: ANGЯY BIЯDS

Filed under: Sketch,Video Games — Tags: — Screenhog @ 1:00 am

#2 of 4 in my series of chalk pastel art for an upcoming local art show.

ANGЯY BIЯDS

Red from Angry Birds (2009)
Various blocks from Tetris (1984)

Twenty-five years after the first iteration of Tetris for the Electronica 60, Angry Birds was hatched, and mobile phone gaming was changed forever. Both games have become cultural phenomena, embraced by gamers of all kinds.

(Fun Fact: The Я in this piece’s name is a reference to the Nintendo Gameboy version of Tetris, which had the letter R reversed in the word “TETRIS”. The Я is a Cyrillic letter, and sounds nothing like our R, but it made Tetris look more “Russian” to North American audiences.)

  3. @screenhogiscool Sometimes, if a question was asked that’s actually related to the blog post. If you had asked a Club Penguin question here, then no.
