After building the Dig Dug LEGO Mosaic a few days ago, I visited a couple retro-gaming websites and reminisced about the coin-op video games I played as a kid. In doing so, I stumbled on another childhood favorite of mine, Pengo! In general, this game was a less popular, but still one I loved. I realized it would make a fun little mosaic, so I built one.
I’ll probably build a few more of these before I get bored with retro-game mosaics. There are at least another 5 games from this early 80′s era that always seemed to get my quarters, and they all have the same blocky 8-bit graphics that are so easily adaptable to brick mosaic form.
