Modern Games Re-Imagined as Atari 2600 Carts

This comes up every now and then.  An artist with talent and imagination decides to do cartridge or box art for a modern game in the style of an older one.  Most kids these days wouldn't understand that part of the attraction of the old Atari 2600 game carts was the trippy, 1980s-inspired art.  Though there were plain text carts and cart art that seemed all blocky and pixelly (is that even a word?) like the games themselves, my favorite were carts with watercolor or chalk drawings that were lifelike and cartoony all at the same time.  StarRoivas has created quite a collection of cartridge art that has to be seen to be believed.
