Move over, iPad… Angry Birds is now available for Sega Genesis

We knew it would happen eventually…

With Rovio’s Angry Birds series appearing on everything from iOS to your grandmother’s toaster the only reasonable place left without a port of the game was Sega’s 16-bit console, the Genesis. Well, now that can be checked off the list as well as a Chinese developer has developed a working ROM of the game and it’s available for free to play on a Genesis emulator of your choice.

From watching the gameplay video above it’s impressive just how well this game translates to the Genesis, even without a touchscreen for precise targeting. If I had a time machine I’d go back to the early 90’s and release this game during the Genesis’s heyday just to see how well it did.

  1. If I had a time machine I would go back and murder the creator of this infernal game while he, or she, was at university and cover it up as though it was a tragic orgy accident involving a horse.

    Damn this game, get the hell off my Mega Drive!

  2. What’s so bad about the game? Why don’t you like it?

  3. It’s not that I dislike the game itself, it’s just that I do not think it is deserving of all the success it has been getting.

    My entire argument again Angry Birds is pretty much as follows: The game itself brings absolutely nothing new to the table and I was playing physic-based catapult games for free back when I had dial-up.

    What does Angry Birds do so well that it deserves its own theme park, DR.Scottnik?

  4. I hate this game too, Theres better free flash games, I played a few, But I like the idea of it being on th mega-drive, if it came out then it would have been cool, but I hate angry birds…
