What if Angry Birds were a Game & Watch game?

It's so strange realizing that the game this decade will likely be most remembered for is Angry Birds. The 2010s will go down in history as the time when mobile titles reigned supreme — or at least encouraged people to buy branded toys, T-shirts, and candy. 

Seriously, you can buy Angry Birds gummy snacks….

But what if Angry Birds started in the '80s? We might find this overwhelming marketing campaign a little easier to swallow if the game were older. To illustrate the thought, Italian artist Giorgio Cantù created this amazing Game & Watch image.
