1981 the year of my birth, also the birth year of many great video games.
Your mission is to pick any game released in 1981 from any platform, pc, nes, etc.. and re-invent it in your own style.
Not looking for a copy of the original, I want to see what you can make in a week in your way.
Your submission must be a standalone application(no installers, just launch and play) or playable in browser(i.e. WebGL)
